Wolverine varsity football plans to clip the wings of the Seneca Valley Screamin’ Eagles at home on Friday after handling the Poolesville Falcons 8-7 in an important away game on September 30.

The tightly-contested game was a thrill to watch as our boys in orange and blue kept pounding until the final whistle blew. Although it was an away game, the team still had plenty of support from the fans and cheer team.

With a score of 8-7, the ‘Rines were really pushed to their limits and showed their resilience, making a late comeback with a touchdown pass from junior quarterback Markel Grant to sophomore Anthony Rush. Following that play, Grant also rushed for the two-point conversion to give the ‘Rines an edge over the Falcons.

Senior Nigel Duberry describes the low scoring game as a result of defense. “It was back and forth a lot. It was a defensive game on both sides of the ball,” Duberry said. “Both teams kept going three and out.”

“It was intense,” junior Jordan Blackman said. “We didn’t fix anything, we just worked on what we messed up.” Blackman emphasized that the coaching staff’s hard work really helped secure the win.

Senior Moziah Cross continues to emphasize the meaning of team, saying that everything is about “our goal” and what the team has to focus on as whole. “Our offense improved, but our defense really stepped up,” Cross added.

Moving on to the Seneca Valley game, the ‘Rines are determined to get it done. Duberry also said the preparations for the Seneca game involves “[fixing] our offense and put in some defensive schemes to prepare for Seneca’s running game.”

The Wolverines look to stay in the playoff race and take it step by step to their goal of winning the state championship. Let’s continue to give all the support we can as Orange Nation.
