The Wolves coming into Week 4 against Arthur Hill could’ve been called a must win for the team. After losing the first 3 games, the Wolves playoff aspirations were looking like a brief dream. Entering the game, the Wolves struggled to put points up on the board, but against the Saginaw Arthur Hill defense it couldn’t be stopped.
With a total of 376 yards of total offense, carrying the Wolves offense was Devonte Mysliwski with one touchdown and 118 yards, Jordan Miller with 78 yards and two touchdowns, and Jordan Varela with 86 yards. Also helping the Wolves was Dominic Zanotti going 9 for 24 with one touchdown and 145 yards passing. With 1:04 left in the fourth quarter the Wolves victory was sealed when senior Taven Wilson pounced on the onside kick. “It was a tough game and coming out with the win was a big confidence boost for the team” Wilson said. “Going into the third quarter the team was excited but weren’t going to give up”. The Wolves won the game 34-30 but giving up a total of 229 yards and three touchdowns to Nate Moore from Arthur Hill.
The Wolves are heading into Week 5 with a boost in confidence and a head of steam. In order for the Wolves to make a long awaited playoff run, they must be perfect for the remainder of the season. They will be put to the test as they travel to the historic Atwood Stadium to take on long time Saginaw Valley League rival Flint Northwestern.
