MATTHEWS, N.C. -- The host Warriors came off a tough 7-0 loss to A.L. Brown last week, but Weddington responded in a big way Friday against Monroe with a 36-22 win.  

Quarterback Jeff Welch threw four touchdowns as the Warriors improved to 3-1 on the season and handed the Redhawks their first loss of the year.

 
Weddington picked off a pass on Monroe’s first play of the game that led to a touchdown early.  The Warriors built a 28-8 lead in the second quarter before Monroe punched a touchdown in just before the half to make it 28-14 at the break.  

Monroe quickly made it a 28-22 game in the 3rd quarter as the Redhawks grabbed all the momentum.
Fortunately for the host Warriors, Weddington got a key stop on fourth down in the fourth quarter and responded with a touchdown to seal the deal.
 
Monroe will try to bounce back in a tough test against Charlotte Christian next week while Weddington visits Parkwood.
