Both the Boone Braves and weather rained on Windermere’s senior night, as the Wolverines fell 49-0 Friday, Oct. 25.
At this point in the season both teams are heading in the total opposite direction — with the Wolverines (1-7) dealing with a six game losing streak since their win in the opening week, while Boone (5-4) had reeled off four-straight wins after starting 0-4.
Both teams would continue on their respective paths, though the Wolverines held up well defensively for three of the four quarters.
After giving up just a single touchdown in the first two minutes of the first quarter, the Wolverines’ defense were overwhelmed in the second quarter as the Braves exploded for 28 points — quarterback Casey St. John had three-passing touchdowns, and Laquavion Lewis had a rushing touchdown.
That blitzkrieg came after an unfortunate officiating error toward the end of the first quarter that quickly turned the momentum of the game in Boone’s favor.
In Windermere’s best drive of the night, the Wolverines found themselves in the Braves’ red zone when quarterback Ryan Flournoy hit Matthew Richardson for what appeared to be a touchdown. After some confusion the touchdown was called back because of an inadvertent whistle being blown by an official.
The Wolverines would only get one more good chance to put point on the board with 3:17 left in the first half, but Flournoy was picked off at the goal line. From there it was all Boone as the Wolverines fell 49-0.
Next up for the Wolverines is an away matchup against Colonial (3-6) Friday, Nov. 1.
