Heading into the final game of the season, Apache head coach Merle Chesbro evaluated his personnel and decided the I-formation would be better than split backs.

IN the crosstown clash Thursday at Redskin Field, it worked.

The Apaches rolled to a 26-6 win, holding the Warriors scoreless untilt he final two minutes.

The Apaches scored first on a bizarre play. The Warriors punted deep in their own territory into a stiff wind, and the ball bounced at the 35 yard line and started to carom backward. No Warrior downed the ball as it bounced to the 10 yard line where Apache Angel Munoz scooped it up and carried it into the end zone.

“I was scared to death,” Chesbro said. “I didn’t know what he was doing, but then he was in the end zone. He played it exactly right. It was a huge play for us.”

Making the change on offense to a new formation allowed the Apaches to feature their strengths Thursday.

“We decided Friday to scrap the offense and go to a Power I,” Chesbro said. “It worked well. They ran it well for only three days of practice with it.”

The season was tough for the Apaches and Warriors, but Chesbro said that there is one game they will take with them.

“Every game is important,” he said. “They will be teammates next year, but during their freshmen year, they will talk about who wins this game. They will remember it the rest of their lives.”
