Western Albemarle entered Friday's home game against Turner Ashby trying to improve on their 1-0 early season record.
The game was not scoreless for long. In the first quarter, Warriors quarterback Stephen Schuler gets the Turner Ashby defense to bite on the play action fake and finds a wide open Dom Losco for the touchdown. The extra point was not good, so the Warriors took a 6-0 early lead.
Turney Ashby would respond with a safety to make it 6-2 at the end of the first quarter. In the second quarter, Western's Cody Davis intercepts the pass from Kyle Lynn and returns it to the Turner Ashby 20 yard line. The Warriors would capitalize a few plays later as the Schuler-to-Losco connection burns Turner Ashby for another touchdown, 13-2 Warriors. Western would tack on a late first half field goal to take a 16-2 lead into the locker room.
And the Warriors would add to that lead in the third quarter. This time its Schuler to Christophe Drapanas over the middle for a touchdown pass, 23-2 Warriors.
Western would cruise to a 23-9 victory, improving to 2-0 this season.
