MABEN – If there was one word that could describe the emotions of the East Webster Wolverines after their loss Friday night, “heartbreak” 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.
“We had been getting on to our defense the past few weeks,” said East Webster head coach Doug Wilson. “(But) they really stepped it up (Friday night) and slowed down a really great offense for most of the first half.”
