The Manawa Wolves offense put up 41 points and the defense kept Omro from scoring all game long as the Wolves dominated in their season opener to earn a 41-0 victory over the Foxes.
Manawa scored 21 in the first quarter, seven in the second quarter, and 13 in the third quarter.
The Wolves piled up 269 rushing yards and 112 passing yards. Logan Hass picked up 138 yards on the ground, along with two touchdowns. Garret Griffin ran for 51 yards and a touchdown, while Wes Krauss and Sam Koehn ran for 28 and 35 yards, respectively; both also scored touchdowns.
Donny Sell completed four of six pass attempts for 112 yards and a touchdown. Krauss caught three passes for 84 yards, while Drew Meyer pulled in one pass for 28 yards and a touchdown.
Manawa had 10 penalties, which cost them 80 yards.
“It was a big win for us. The line blocked well, the backs ran well, and the defense tackled,” said Coach Bob Sell. “We will have to eliminate the penalties and correct our mental mistakes.
“The real test is next week against Shiocton,” continued Sell. “We are looking forward to a challenging week at practice and a good showing on Friday night. We will have to be extremely physical to have a chance at winning. We played well against Omro, but we will need to perform even better to be successful against the Chiefs.
“The Senior class motto is ‘Our Time is Now’,” commented Sell. “This game against Omro was a good way to start the season, but it is more important to go 1-0 next week.”
The Wolves take on the Chiefs in Shiocton on Friday, Aug. 31, at 7 p.m.
