The Wolves varsity football team suffered a 34-7 loss against Weyauwega-Fremont on Friday, Oct. 15.
The Wolves fell behind 21-0 at halftime, allowing three W-F backs to reach the end zone. In the second half, W-F scored on a 63-yard pass play and a 60-yard run play before Manawa could get on the board.
Jestin Heimbruch provided a few bright moments for the Wolves as he rushed three times for 62 yards with a touchdown. He also had five receptions for 47 yards.
Manawa was hurt by 10 penalties for 65 yards and three interceptions.
“The mean machine wasn’t very mean on Friday,” said Coach Bob Sell. “We have one week to go, and after watching some of the professional teams, maybe we’re not that bad-we make some of the same mistakes they make.
“We’re working on execution and trying to bring things together to go out on a good note against Shiocton this week,” Sell continued. “It’s been a tough year but the players are having a good time and doing their best to enjoy the end of the season. The year hasn’t been a loss-the players learned a lot this year that will pertain on and off the field. We had a good group of seniors and I was privileged to develop strong relationships with all of them. I wish them well in the future.”
An awards banquet will be held at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6 at Cedar Springs Golf Course.
