At stake was the West Coast Championship, with an opportunity to play in the state championship game the following week.

The Warriors are a team consisting of 10- to 13-year-old players in the eight-on-eight Florida Spring Youth Football League. There are 14 players made up mostly from the Punta Gorda area that have had a remarkable season.
