The Timberwolves headed to Johnson, Neb. Friday night to meet the Johnson-Brock Eagles. It didn’t take Exeter-Milligan long to show that they are a force to be reckoned with in D-2.
In the first quarter Kyle Jensen took the ball in on the first possession for a touchdown. Coach Dean Filipi started Sophomore Trevor Luzum at quarterback and for the Timberwolves' second possession Jensen took the ball into the endzone on a 41 yard run. Luzum kept the ball to add two more points lighting up the scoreboard 14-0.
It wasn’t long before the T-wolves were on the board again this time with Dusty Axline carrying the ball and Luzum keeping the ball on the point after bringing the score to 22-0.
The second quarter didn’t fare much better for the Eagles as Jensen again headed down the field for a 76 yard touchdown run. It was Axline who carried the ball in for two with 10:31 on the clock.
Jensen and Axline got their hands on the ball again bringing the T-wolves on top of the Eagles 38-0.
Johnathon Mounce got into the touchdown action carrying the ball into the endzone. The point after failed but the Eagles didn't have much of a chance as Mounce intercepted the ball and brought it down just shy of another touchdown at the 2 yard line.
With 2:05 left in the first half Luzum ran for a 51 yard touchdown bringing the half time score to 56-0.
The Timberwolf younger players had the opportunity to play for the entire second half. At quarterback freshman Seth Maxson served the ball up to Eric Olsen and Joey Bartu who both ran the ball. Olsen intercepted what would have been touchdown for the Eagles, stopping their run and bringing the ball out to the 15 for the Exeter-Miligan team.
The Eagles scored twice in the second half, once on a breakaway run and the second on a hail mary pass that brought them down to the 5 yard line.
Next week the Timberwolves host the Giltner Hornets in Milligan.
