We started the game out with a Bryce Robison interception for a touchdown and a Rossiter to Rossiter two point conversion made it 8-0 with less than two minutes gone in the game. After a 3 and out on defense the offense took over and marched the ball down the field. We capped off the drive with a Darren Hunter 10 yard punishing run with a two point conversion and we were off. 16 -0 with about 5 minutes to go in the first quarter. After the ensuing kickoff the Bears took over at their own 30. They ran two plays and on the second play their running back coughed up the ball and Sam Jennings was there to scoop it up and rumble 35 yards for a TD. We were in business. At one minute left in the first quarter the lightning and weather went crazy and we headed to the locker rooms. We resumed play at 9:00 and picked up right where we left off. There were touchdown passes from Kolt Rossiter to Bryce Robison and Garret Baker as well as a TD run by Kaleb Hagge to finish out the scoring for the Wolves.
The defense had a very dominating night holding Danville to 51 total yards as well as pitching another shutout. That takes the scoring difference this year to 180-6. We are only giving up 1.5 points per game and the defensive unit has 14 takeaways already this year. We have as many interceptions at this point in the season as we did all of last season. And we are only 6 TD short of how many we scored last year.
This years team is a vast improvement from last year and the coaching staff likes to credit the weight room and the mind set of these young men. They are prepared, humble, and hard-working. Not only that but they are a joy to coach.
Stay tuned for the preview vs Lone Tree this week. They come in at 3-1 and 2-0 in the district. This is a very important game for both teams. Check back later in the week for the preview.

For those before us, those of us now, and those that follow, WE ARE WMU!
