Cold and windy at game time with a few passing showers.
The first quarter kickoff started off with a big kick by Noah Weintraub to the Lake Washington Kangs with no return. On the first series for the Kangs was dropped for a 7-yard loss by Wyatt Bickford and Will Doran leading to a quick three and out.
Parker Barrysmith starting at quarterback for the first Wolves drive with a 7-yard pass to Cody Matson, short pass to Michael Lester for a first down, and a huge 35-yard touchdown pass to Noah Weintraub for the TD. With the conversion Wolves up by 7.
Following another great kick, the Kangs had a 35-yard run back. This drive was stopped quickly by two back to back tackles by Darren Hom for big Kangs losses. After the punt, the first down handoff to Jack Peterson for an elusive 60-yard carry for the second touchdown. After another perfect conversion, the Wolves are up 14-0 on the Kangs.
Huge credit to the Offensive front line for negating the Kangs defensive rush and blowing huge running lanes for the Wolves running backs. Adam Westmoreland, Luke “Carolina” Robertson, Jake Freshour, and several others.
Kickoff to the Kangs with Logan Eller with a BIG hit pinning them back on their 15-yardline.
Kangs throw a quick screen pass to get their first down with two minutes remaining in the first quarter, but the drive fails as Evann Tauscher drops the running back in the backfield for a third down loss.
