The WACO Warriors were in Lisbon last night in quarterfinal action taking on a team they played at the end of the regular season for the district championship.

Then the Warriors got down to the Lisbon 20 and were stopped on fourth down. WACO would force a punt and drive into Lisbon territory early in the second quarter and Spencer Shepherd would score on a 40 yard touchdown run. The Warriors would score two more touchdowns in the quarter with a Jordan Vradenberg 20 yard touchdown run and a Shepherd 4 yard punch in. It was 20-0 at halftime.
