Unbeaten Scotties Bite Wolves Hard, WPHS Gridders Humbled On Homecoming Night

10.16.14.SP-WP-FOOTBALL 4946-WEB10.16.14.SP-WP-FOOTBALL 4950-WEB10.16.14.SP-WP-FOOTBALL 4952-WEB10.16.14.SP-WP-FOOTBALL 4953-WEB10.16.14.SP-WP-FOOTBALL 4952-WEB10.16.14.SP-WP-FOOTBALL 4953-WEB



A Scottie would be no match for a wolf in the wild, but that’s not the case on the football field, at least not this year.
The Glasgow Scotties bit hard and kept biting, blanking the Wolves 41-0 in the Wolf Point Homecoming game, Friday, Oct. 10.
Glasgow, ranked No. 3 in the state, remains undefeated at 3-0 in the Northern 2B District and 7-0 overall.
“Glasgow is as good as their ranking says,” Wolf Point head coach Bruce Knerr said.
“Our defense knew they had to contain their quarterback, who might be the best quarterback in the state,” he said.
That quarterback is Jason Thibault.
“Both edges of our defense contained Glasgow’s outside run but they gashed us up the middle,” Knerr said.
“Their 17 seniors are hard to man-up against. With nine total juniors, their juniors and seniors combined; not to mention the five sophomores we have starting,” he said.
Knerr said he is proud of the team.
“Being scared before the game starts is OK if you’re a freshman but not for a senior,” he said.
Offensively, senior Tyson Bridges caught four passes for 65 yards. Junior David Knerr recorded 76 yards rushing on 13 carries.
On defense, senior Josh Neiskens led the Wolves with 12 tackles, sophomore Brady Babb posted nine and David Knerr had 11 tackles and one quarterback sack. Bridges posted six tackles and one sack. Senior Cameron Quincy recorded seven tackles and junior Austyn Juve had nine.
The Wolves (1-1, 3-4) have two remaining games: at Malta (1-1, 3-3), Wednesday, Oct. 15; and Plentywood (1-2, 1-6) visits for the senior night game, Friday, Oct. 24, both at 7 p.m.
“This week, we go to Malta and, like us, they have a small number of seniors and juniors. It should be a good game,” Knerr said. “We are going to go into that game with one goal, to do whatever it takes to win.”
It is a must win for Wolf Point, as is the Plentywood game. The Wolves must win both remaining games to finish in second-place in the district and earn a  playoff berth.

The Lady Wolves seemed to change the tempo at the beginning of the second game against Plentywood.
Sweet said the players are trying to adjust to officials blowing a faster whistle.
“We’re struggling with it,” he said.
The Lady Wolves will host Glasgow, Thursday, Oct. 9, and Harlem, Saturday, Oct. 11.
