MABEN â€“ If there was one word that could describe the emotions of the East Webster Wolverines after their loss Friday night, â€śheartbreakâ€ť would probably the first choice.
The Wolverines fell to division rival Bruce 7-3 in what proved to be a hotly contested game between two solid defenses.
After the Trojans offense marched downfield to the 36-yard line in under a minute to open the game, the Wolverines defense recovered a fumble, ending the Bruce scoring threat. Bruce had two more drives across midfield in the first half, only to be stopped by the Wolverines defense each time.
â€śWe had been getting on to our defense the past few weeks,â€ť said East Webster head coach Doug Wilson. â€ś(But) they really stepped it up (Friday night) and slowed down a really great offense for most of the first half.â€ť
