Farmington Hills-Harrison felt a chill in the air as the second half began last Friday, but it wasn’t from the changing weather – it was from Clarkston’s gridiron gang.
The Wolves put 26 points on the score board and by the end of the game had beaten the home team, 32-20.
‘It was a nice win,? said Wolves Football Head Coach Kurt Richardson. ‘We played well enough offensively when we had to. We played defensively when we had to.?
Dakota Bender scored the first touchdown for the night after finishing his 6-yard run.
The next two came from Dustin Gamble off of two big plays for the Wolves.
Quarterback Tyler Scarlett threw a 54-yard pass to Gamble for the first touchdown.
Gamble struck again after catching a 70-yard pass from Bender.
‘Dustin’s touchdowns were big plays,? said Richardson.
Scarlett finished the half scoring his own touchdown from a 2-yard run and Bender added one more before the end of the game.
‘Dakota is running now the way we wanted him to all year long,? said Richardson. ‘He is running tough up inside and he can go outside, too. We are putting it all together.?
The boys will take the momentum into this week’s game when they host cross-town rivals Lake Orion (7-1, 6-0 OAA Red) for the last game of the regular season.
‘This is something they red-tagged right at the beginning,? said Richardson.
Both teams are tied for first place in the OAA Red and the Friday’s winner takes the league championship.
‘The Orion game is always special. It’s a chance to go 9-0. It’s a playoff game at home,? he added. ‘There is a lot at stake here.?
Both teams will bring everything to the field this week knowing each other’s weaknesses and strengths.
‘They run the football well. They throw the football well. They play good defense,? said Richardson. ‘They are a very good football team and they are well-coached. It’s going to be a fun night and a great game.?
Kick-off is set for 6:55 p.m.
