Wolves Post First Conference Win

The Wolves recorded their first Class B North conference win, 40-28 over the Wildcats in Harlem Friday, Sept. 21.
Wolf Point (1-1, 1-3) had a 21-12 lead at halftime. Quarter scores were not available.
Wolf Point has won one game and lost two so far this season. One overall loss was a non-conference forfeit to Colstrip of the scheduled season opener due to several Wolves unable to play due to practice injuries and others without the minimum number of practices.
Harlem (0-3, 0-3) has only played conference teams so far.
The Wolves’ offense recorded 413 yards.
Nick Page rushed for 250 yards and scored two touchdowns. Ty Nelson posted 76 running yards and one touchdown. Quarterback Austin Wilson passed for 53 yards. He threw two touchdown passes to David Redhouse for 22 yards and Nelson for 11 yards. Wilson rushed for 35 yards and scored one touchdown.
Penalties called against the Wolves nullified two big plays.
Head coach Ryan Wilson said the line did a good job blocking.
The Wolves’ defense allowed 159 yards after penalties. Austin Wilson recorded 10 tackles and a fumble recovery. Page had an interception and forced a fumble.
“[Thai] Eggebrecht and [Zeke] Zimmer did a great job on the defensive line, each having five total tackles. Nelson, [Tyson] Weeks, Redhouse all had five total tackles, too,” Wilson said.
“Page ran the ball hard,” he said.
“Harlem came out excited and hung with us most of the game. We gave up some big returns that led to two easy scores. And backup defense gave one up late in the game,” Wilson said.
“Hats off to Harlem. Boys played tough. Never got rattled,” he said.
The Wolves will play a 2 p.m., matinée Saturday, Sept. 29, against the Cowboys in Conrad. The Wolf Point Homecoming game will follow Friday, Oct. 5, with the Glasgow Scotties visiting for another conference game.
The Cowboys (0-3, 0-4), a Class B North conference team, lost to the Scotties 20-14 in Glasgow Friday, Sept 21.
