The Bennett County Warriors football team ended their season on a positive note, edging Pine Ridge 8-6 last Friday in Pine Ridge. The winning score was set up by an outstanding defensive play by junior Sam Byrne, who intercepted a Thorpe pass, then pitched the ball as he was getting tackled, to teammate Mason Heath, who raced in for the lone Warrior touchdown to tie the game at 6.
The Warriors then scored on the conversion on a Weston Ireland run to take an 8-6 lead, and the defense held up to preserve the win.
Byrne was named the Defensive Player of the Game and the Overall Player of the Week.
