The ALA Warriors Junior High Football team traveled all the way to Ajo, AZ on Saturday 9/9/17 to take on the Ajo Red Raiders. Ajo is a two and a half hour drive from San Tan Valley, and only 43 miles from the Mexican border. The warriors were not about to make that trip and not come home with a win in the first game of the season.

From the beginning the Warriors were in control of the game taking a 18-0 first quarter lead, and a 38-0 lead at the half.

Neither team did much in the third with the score staying 38-0. Things changed in the fourth though as Ajo put a touchdown on the board followed by a two point conversion.

The game ended  with a score of 38-8. The warriors will take on La Paloma Central in a home game on Saturday September 16, 2017 at the ALA Ironwood Campus, and Imagine Coolidge in another home game on September, 23.
