The Dade County High School Wolverine football team opened the 2104 season Friday night in a big way at Wolverine Field.

The Wolverines hosted the North Sand Mountain Bison before a big crowd that played havoc with Trenton traffic before kickoff. Traffic was backed up across I-59 at times as fans tried to get to the high school.

The Wolverines took an early lead after a Bison turnover gave the excellent field position. Blake Lynn scored the first touchdown of the season on a 5 yard run with 5:36 remaining in the first quarter. Daniel Hall kicked the extra point for the 7-0 Wolverine lead.

Just over two minutes later the Wolverines would scored again. This time it was Zac Freeman who went around right end for a two yard run. Hall again kicked the extra point and with 3:17 remaining in the first quarter the Wolverines lead 14-0.

Early in the second quarter Blake Lynn would get his second touchdown of the night, this time on a two yard run and the Hall kick put the Wolverines on top 21-0 with 11:24 remaining in the first half.

It didn’t take the Wolverines long to score again. With 9:44 remaining in the first half Lynn got his third touchdown of the night, this time on a 15 yard run. Hall’s kick was good and the lead was now 28-0.

The young Bison team had trouble moving the ball against a good Wolverine defense and turnovers hurt their efforts as well.

With 2:26 remaining in the first half Freeman got his second score of the night on a 42 yard run. Hall was true again on the PAT kick and the half would end with the Wolverines enjoying a 35-0 lead.

The Wolverines played mostly junior varsity players in the second half and midway through the third quarter Lee Spencer scored on a three yard run to put the Wolverines on top 41-0. The extra point try was no good.

The Wolverines would move the ball up and down the field but couldn’t seem to score again as penalties hurt their efforts.

The Bison continued to play hard and with 1:04 remaining in the game Hunter Hill scored on a 60 yard run for their first points of the night. The try for the two point conversion was no good.

The final score was 41-6 for an impressive opening win for the Wolverines.

The Wolverine offense was led by Blake Lynn with 13 carries for 89 yards and three touchdowns. Lee Spencer had seven carries for 64 yards and one score while Zac Freeman had four carries for 52 yards and two touchdowns.

Ken Stone had two carries for 53 yards and Trey Whitehead had four carries for 26 yards and Corbin York had three carries for 24 yards.

North Sand Mountain was led by Hunter Hill who had six carries for 76 yards and one score while Jordan Harmon had 12 carries for 27 yards and Eric George had eight carries for 22 yards.

The Wolverines lost one fumble and only attempted one pass during the game while the Bison lost three fumbles and had three passes intercepted.

Defensive stats were not available at press time but several Wolverines had big games on the defensive side of the ball.

Roy McMahan led the Wolverine defense but he had lots of help as they held the Bison to just 178 yards total offense.
