Havre de Grace got on the scoreboard first with a safety. The Warriors were looking for a touchdown, but Jasai Stansbury coughed the ball up at the NAF two.
One snap later, Havre de Grace defensive end Jesse Fenner got to the NAF runner in the end zone. Fenner slowed him down and Josh Mergler finished him off for the safety.
The Warriors took advantage of the free kick possession to add their first offensive score. Sean Greeley did the honors, running 29 yards for the touchdown. "It was a outside run play to the left side and I was running, turned my head and I saw a lot of open space, so I cut back and just saw open space and took advantage of it," Greeley said.
Early in quarter two, Jordan White grabbed the first of two interceptions he returned for touchdowns.
White stepped in front of the pass and raced 30 yards into the end zone.
Just over a minute into the third quarter, White was at it again. White grabbed another NAF pass and raced 20 yards to paydirt.
"The pass rush was excellent, it got to the quarterback and made him feel uncomfortable, which opened up my abilities to go get the ball," White said. "I felt great coming out here today, first game I had to give it my all."
White wasn't the only Warrior to take an intercepion back for points.
Linebacker Savion Johnson picked off a pass late in the first half and took it back 23 yards for the score.
The other Warriors points came on a pass play. Quarterback Alex Gresock, making his first varsity start, fired a strike down the middle to Jordan Day, covering 22 yards.
Gresock finished 8-for-11 for 64 yards, all in the first half. Stansbury had 62 yards on 7 carries and Greeley finished with 53 yards on 4 touches. Greeley had a second touchdown run called back by holding and personal foul penalties.
Christian Penrow had 4 receptions for 13 yards. Kicker Clay Harris made all five extra-point kicks and his lone field goal attempt never happened as the snap was bobbled.
"Our win today means a lot, I gotta give a lot of credit to the line. They really work their butts off in practice and they're giving us good pushes, especially on defense," Greeley said. "They're bringing a lot of pressure on that quarterback and it's really helping us to make big plays, such as interceptions, pick sixes, all that good stuff."
