September 25, 2007
The Coleville Wolves exploded for 80 points in a lopsided victory over the hosting McDermitt Bulldogs over the weekend.
The 80 to 16 non-league victory keep the Wolves unbeaten at 5-0 in the preseason with league play beginning next week at Smith Valley.
Freshman flanker and defensive back Emmi Sandoval had a career day, scoring four times for Coleville.
Sandoval scored on the Wolves opening drive on a 41-yard pass from Jason Peters. He scored again on Coleville’s second drive on a 33-yard run. He scored twice more in the second quarter returning an interception for a school record 79 yards and returning a kickoff 75 yards.
Sophomore tight end and linebacker Jay Clark also had a breakout game scoring his first two career touchdowns.
Clark scored on a 26-yard touchdown reception and on a 58-yard touchdown scamper after he blocked a third-quarter field goal. In addition to his defensive touchdown, Clark ended the day with 3 solo tackles and 12 assists in an outstanding defensive performance.
Peters, the Wolves’ sophomore quarterback, ended the day with 182 yards passing and four touchdown passes. Trevor Anderson led the Coleville receivers with 78 yards in receptions, scoring once on a 51-yard touchdown pass. Dylan Hudson caught one pass for a 31-yard touchdown and also scored on a 29-yard interception return.
Colton Ward led the Wolves with 37 yards on the ground and scored one touchdown on a seven-yard run. Freshman Shane Parker scored his first career touchdown on a 34-yard run.
Defensively the Coleville Wolves forced six turnovers. Sophomore linebacker John Hall came off the bench to lead the defensive effort with four solos, 11 assists, and a fumble recovery. Kyle Tidwell with two solos and five assists, Terrence Garcia with 10 assists and one sack, Steven Koelling with eight assists, and Kambel Kenaston with six assists all made significant defensive contributions.
“I was hoping for a more competitive tune-up game leading into league play but it was a great opportunity to get the younger players significant playing time,” Coleville coach Will Sandy said. “The younger guys played very well especially on defense. We understand that our next three games will be very tough league contests beginning with next week’s game at Smith Valley. Smith Valley will be out to avenge an earlier loss to us and we had better be ready to play our best game of the season.”
