Exeter-Milligan Makes a Splash with Win #30

 The Hornets were after Timberwolf Sean Maxson all night.  Last year was one of the highest scoring games in 8-man football with the Timberwolves on top 76-62.  Tonight the battle was a little different.  Giltner with an already soggy field received one inch of rain at 5:30 p.m. just before the 7:00 game.  Before the players even started the game they were muddy and wet.  Both teams struggled to keep their footing and Exeter-Milligan's running game was shut down by the Hornets.  The Hornets got on the board with the first score just before the end of the first quarter but were denied the extra points.  The Timberwolves came back strong in the second quarter putting up six points with the extra two to top it off 8-6.  The game came down to the last few minutes with the Timberwolves stopping Giltner on the Timberwolf 10 yard line with 10 seconds left in the game. Final score Timberwolves win 16-14. The Timberwolves will meet Lawrence-Nelson in Milligan on Friday night.  The Raiders are 3-0, beating Lewiston, Heartland Lutheran and Kennesaw.
