The Wilber-Clatonia Wolverines defeated the Elmwood-Murdock
Knights 29-0 last Friday night in Elmwood. The Wolverines are the defending state champions and entered the contest ranked #5 in C-2. Wilber-Clatonia has a solid football team. They are athletic and have good team speed. Our goal was to make them earn everything and not give up the big play. Other than a turnover in the 1st quarter and a long pass late in the 4th quarter the Knights were able to slow done Wilber-Clatonia throughout the 2nd and 3rd quarters. We had a couple nice drives on offense but could not get the big play we needed. Credit Wilber-Clatonia. They play off blocks well and it was difficult to get to the perimeter. We had a couple seams open up but they closed quickly. The Knights travel to Palmyra Friday night. Game time is 7:00 p.m.
