Wayne State (1-1) lost its home football opener Sept. 9 to No. 18 ranked Indianapolis (2-0), 31-28, in a thriller that came down to the last play.

“After the first drive, I thought we settled in and played really good defense,” head coach Paul Winters said. “And I think offensively, on those first two drives, we were really rolling.”

Despite the loss, Winters was still proud of how his team performed.

“Our guys weren’t challenged last week [versus Walsh]. We were challenged this week. What I’m encouraged by is that we responded to the challenge. So, I’m hoping that that carries over into the following weeks.”  

The Warriors begin GLIAC conference play Sept. 16 when they host Saginaw Valley State at 6 p.m.
