Wolves Reload For 2015 Opener After Good Scrimmage Showing

Armed with a new offensive scheme, the Wolves are reloaded for the 2015 season opener at Forsyth Saturday, Aug. 29, after a good showing at a scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 22.
The Southern 3B Dogies (3-2, 6-3 in 2014) are hosting Northern 2B Wolf Point (2-2, 4-5 in 2014) for the non-conference opener, scheduled for 6 p.m.
When the two teams last met, Forsyth thwarted the Wolves for a 39-0 loss at home, Sept. 19, 2014, but that was before the Dogies lost several top players to graduation and changed head coaches.
The Wolves also have changed head coaches with the departure of Bruce Knerr, who is now coaching at Livingston. Knerr led the Wolves for several seasons. The Wolves have also undergone personnel changes with the departure of several of last year’s senior starters. Junior Brady Babb has moved into the quarterback slot.
“I don’t know what they [Forsyth] have. They have a new head coach and they graduated a few key players,” Wolf Point head coach Brett Scott said.
“It will be kind of like they don’t know what we will do and we don’t know what they will do,” he said.
Despite having their best season in several years, the Wolves fell short of making it into postseason play last year. Scott is determined to take the Wolves deep into the playoffs this year.
He said the Wolves looked good at the scrimmage, but a little sloppy during the second part of the scrimmage.
“I just think, for us trying to put in a new offensive scheme, it went well,” Scott said.
“Everybody played well. The defense played well. Overall they did well,” he said.
The Wolves will host Southern 3B Baker (3-2, 6-4 last year) for the first game night at Lowry Field Friday, Sept. 4, at 7 p.m.
The Spartans swamped Wolf Point 48-0 at Baker last year and sent several wounded Wolves home with injuries that sidelined some for the next one or two games.
The Wolves will host Colstrip Friday, Sept. 11, and then host the Poplar Indians for the WPHS Homecoming game Friday, Sept. 18. The Indians will play their first varsity season after playing junior varsity only for several years.
