MABEN – The East Webster Wolverines might have had a different story to tell today if games were decided by a team’s performance in the first half.
However, the second half proved to be quite the boost for the Wolverines, as they defeated the Nettleton Tigers 35-27.
After starting the game by driving into Nettleton territory, East Webster came up empty-handed after a missed 35-yard field goal attempt. In their next three possessions of the first half, the Wolverines came in to the Tigers’ end of the field, only to come up scoreless each time. Meanwhile, the Tigers found the end zone once in each quarter, as Levert Jernigan scored on a 55-yard reception and quarterback Dakota Cruber scored on a 2-yard sneak, to go into halftime ahead 14-0.
“At the half, I just told them to keep fighting,” East Webster head coach Doug Wilson said. “We knew we had to come out in the second half and get a stop on their opening drive.”
