Wolverines walk over Hudson, 46-8

By David Rogers. BOONE, N.C. — After getting thumped by East Alexander Middle School a week earlier, the Watauga Wolverines returned to the High Country and get back to basics, to work on a few things. After running by, through and around Hudson Middle School on Sept. 20, with a 46-8 win, you might say, “Mission accomplished.”

The Wolverines received arguably the highest compliment while gathering for a team picture after the game, in the east end zone of the Hardin Park School football field. The departing Hudson team bus was going by when one of their players leaned out the window and yelled, “Nice job, Watauga!”

To be sure, the Wolverines won the day in grand style on both sides of the ball. Long rushes for TDs by multiple players, as well “scoop and scoot” fumble recoveries and returns for TDs. Scoring 33 points in just the first quarter and adding seven more before halftime, head coach Michael Neff and his staff were able to give a lot of players time on the field.

“When we played East Alexander, they were a good team but I don’t think we gave them our best football,” said Neff, before adding, “So we came back and worked on a lot of things. We showed a lot of improvement today. Our guys played hard.”
