Wolverines move to 5-0

The “come-from-behind-kids” made things easier on themselves Friday night as they took a second quarter lead over Caledonia and held it through the second half, rolling to a 25-13 win in non-division play.
“The key to us winning was the offense not turning the ball over and staying on the field,” said coach Doug Wilson. “We won the time of possession battle which was important with the wet weather.”
The Wolverines ran even with the Confederates through the first quarter and took an 18-6 lead at the half.
Special teams made a difference as a big return on kickoff set up a TD at the start of the second half, adding extra padding for the win.
“That really helped as the rain really started to pour down to the point where both teams were just trying to survive.”
The duo of Jack Wilson and Deangelo Liggins produced the points behind the offensive line that kept them moving the chains. Wilson had TDs in the first and second quarter while Liggins posted scores in the second and third.
The win moved the Wolverines to 5-0 on the year, but the road is set to get bumpier by the week as they move toward division play.
The Wolverines will be on the road to J.Z. George Friday and October will bring the gauntlet weekly as they face Okolona, Calhoun City, Bruce and Eupora, all battling for a playoff berth.web foot ew
