WINTHROP — The Winslow High School football team is off to a 4-0 start thanks to an impressive 40-13 victory over Winthrop in a Western C Campbell Conference game Friday night at Maxwell Field.
The Raiders took advantage of five Winthrop turnovers and a host of other mistakes to grab the victory.
Here’s a few notes from the game:
• Tensions ran high most of the game, and a late Winslow score did nothing to soothe what was already an emotional Winthrop sideline. Leading 34-13 with under a minute to go, Winslow quarterback Donald Camp rushed for a 3-yard touchdown to cap the scoring.
When the game ended, Winthrop coach Joel Stoneton approached his Winslow counterparts at midfield and expressed his displeasure.
“I didn’t appreciate it,” Stoneton said.
Winslow coach Mike Siviski said after the game the Black Raiders weren’t trying to run up the score.
“We wanted to try and take a knee,” he said.
• Stoneton said he and his staff implemented a spread offense earlier this week to try and catch the Raiders off guard.
“I appreciate the kids picking it up as quick as they did,” Stoneton said.
The Ramblers had their moments, but couldn’t get out of their own way at times.
Quarterback Jared Hanson threw for a touchdown and a whopping 229 yards. He also was intercepted twice.
“Turnovers killed us,” he said.
Zach Glazier had eight receptions for 95 yards.
The new-look offense didn’t exactly surprise Winslow, Siviski said.
“We were prepared for it,” he said.Tweet
