Hornets defeat Wolves in season finale


October 29, 2020

The Wolves played host to the Pine Bluffs Hornets this past Friday. The Wolves were missing some key players due to injuries that have happened throughout the year, so the pack took the field with younger players stepping up and battling for the team.

The Hornets took a 21-0 lead over the Wolves in the first quarter, then scored one more time in in the second. The Wolves wouldn’t be shut out as Zane Linder followed some great blocking and took it 54 yards, making the score 28-6 at half.

Lane Wood struck first for the Wolves in the second half as he took the ball 64 yards on a run, and once again, some great blocking by the young Wolves line to spring him free. The Hornets answered, having many offensive weapons to choose from. The Wolves would be down 36-12 at the end of three.

In the fourth quarter, the Hornets took a fumble back for a touchdown, but the Wolves saw a Linder to Wood connection for a 54-yard touchdown pass. The Hornets had an explosive kick return to finalize the score at 50-20 in favor of the Hornets.

The lead players for the Wolves in this tense game were Zane Linder 6/9 101 passing yards one TD and one INT and 105 yards rushing yards and a TD for the game; Lane Wood, with 89 receiving yards and a TD and 73 rushing yards and a TD for the game; and Randy Peters lead the team in defensive points.
