2003 is becoming the year of rain, with the third game this season with some sort of rain, the Warrior have found wet conditions and victories in each of these contest. Traveling to Piqua and its state of the art stadium the Warriors look to better their mark to 6-1. Would the Warriors find a way to stop Piqua at home or would the Indians send them home with a loss.

The game started with the Warriors making mistakes early with turnovers to give Piqua great field position and two early scores. Trailing by two scores early in the first quarter the Warriors started the climb back and the game would be close until the final seconds were on the clock.

Most weeks we speak with senior Warrior players, this week we changed and spoke with the Warrior Cheerleaders. This group of young women work hard each week and keep the Warrior fans into the game. We also had some special guest for this game. Two of OhioPrepScene.com message board members, Piqua_Rules and Piqua Indian joined us for some pre-game talk about this battle. We would like to thank both of them for giving us some time to bring a change of pace to the broadcast.
Most weeks we speak with senior players. This week we speak with the Warrior Cheerleaders who are much better looking and also smell better.
Also during the game two former Warrior greats Derek Jones and John Hollins joined us. We would like to thank both of them for doing this. But the real story on the night was the battle between Piqua and Wayne. With the early turnovers the Warriors put themselves in a deep hole. But they never gave up and fought back to cut the score with a rushing touchdown and a Drew Eby kick.
Heading into halftime the Warriors saw a 14 - 10 score on the board and the staff went to work. Coming out at the half the Warriors worked and were able to put two more Drew Eby kicks on the board. Making the score 16 - 14 with plenty of time left, Piqua saw several chances end and with time running out they blocked a field goal try and looked to get into position for a touchdown or at least a field goal try and the win. Piqua got close but a flag slowed down the progress and when they had to complete a big pass play Warrior Marvin Samuel played centerfield and picked Karns pass to seal the game. The Warriors head home with a big victory and many computer points this week. Final score Wayne 16 Piqua 14
