Warrior soccer teams swept
the Spearfish Spartans in their
second games of the season
Saturday at Yankton Trail Park.
In extreme temperatures,
the Warrior soccer teams were
able to keep their cool and
defeat the Spartans in an overwhelming four game sweep.
The varsity girls team took
the lead early and kept it, ending the game with a 6-2 win.
Their determination on the
field really stood out against
Spearfish, according to junior

team and played a good two
touch, physical game,” Torbert
The varsity boys also ended
their match with a victory over
Spearfish. The Spartans took
an early 1-0 lead in the first
half, but the Warriors made
their comeback in the second
half with junior Mckelle
Gravelle’s tying goal making it
an even game. The Warrior
defense, with junior John
Larson manning the goal, was
able to stop Spearfish from
scoring in the second half,
allowing junior Bailey Uthe’s
goal to seal the 2-1 win.

Join a fantasy football league for some fall fun
As most of you know, the football season is approaching quickly—not just Washington Warrior football, but
also the National Football League.
The NFL brings a lot of great things to Sundays, such
as family gatherings, great food,
Hear me. . .
and of course
In order to be
successful in fanMatt Schievelbein
tasy football, you
want to discuss
those players who have seen their values rise over the preseason and the previous season. Most leagues that you can
enter have a grand prize you can win, including money,
shoes, clothing or anything that you can think of.
Your roster should include 15 to 18 players of your
choice, and how many players to draft at each position is
totally up to you.
My advice is that you choose two quarterbacks, four
running backs, four wide receivers, two tight ends, two
kickers and two defensive/special teams units. You can’t
use every single player each week, but you want to choose
the players that you think will do their best.
Running Back Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota
Vikings, one of my favorite players, is going to be the top
pick in many fantasy football leagues this season.
Remember, Warriors, fantasy football is for everyone.
Don’t be afraid to get together with some friends and join
a league this season and show you have what it takes to
coach an NFL team.
Senior Matt Schievelbein thinks the Tennessee Titans will go undefeated.

— On Day 9, the sweeping Rim fire reshaped lives
and topography from pristine wilderness areas to a
famed national park to
that could be in the direct
line of fire, depending at
any moment on which
way the wind blew.
In Groveland, Abby
Esteres nervously puffed
on a cigarette Sunday
morning after her first
night back in her Pine
Lake Mountain home.
“I haven’t been able to
eat not knowing if our
house burned down or
not,” said the 27-year-old
housekeeper, who went
through a week of evacuation. “They’re still not saying we’re in the clear. But
it’s better. I ate breakfast
for the first time in days.”
Near Tuolumne City,
firefighters dug trenches,
cleared brush, laid heavy
water hoses and started
backfires to try to divert
the blaze around the town
as they had in Groveland.
Flames were visible from
some roofs. A base camp
in the area could see 2,500
firefighters by Tuesday if
the winds continue to
push from the southwest,
said a fire official.
But even as firefighters
worked furiously to hold a
line outside of town, officials warned that this blaze
was so hot it could send
sparks more than a mile
and a half out that could
jump lines and start new
hot spots. Evacuation
advisories remain in effect
for Tuolumne City and
On the north edge, the
fire — now 134,000 acres
— pushed into the
Emigrant Wilderness Area
and Yosemite National
Park. It’s the one side of
the fire with a natural last
stand: Eventually it will
run into granite walls that
have snuffed out fires in
this region for centuries.
Each day, what the
massive blaze does
depends on the wind. But
officials were particularly
attuned to each shift of
breeze Sunday because of
the weather’s eerie similarities to the day when the
fire first exploded out of
