EMCS player Jesse Warby tries to escape capture from a Timberline defender during their Saturday afternoon game in Sooke.

EMCS Wolverines fall prey to Timberline Wolves

Edward Milne lost to the Timberline Secondary Wolves from Campbell River on a windy Saturday afternoon on home soil.

The boys from Edward Milne looked a little sluggish as they hosted the Timberline Secondary Wolves from Campbell River on a windy Saturday afternoon.

The usual group of parents, students, and other football fans sat and stood along the sidelines and watched the Wolves draw first blood early in the first quarter with a touchdown.

The Wolverines wouldn’t respond until the third quarter  when EMCS coach Matt Mortenson said “they did come alive and really moved the ball.”

Connor Gray caught a pass from quarterback Alex Wright for the score.

The home team failed to capitalize on the conversion and wouldn’t record any more points,  eventually succumbing 30-6.

“Mistakes cost them,” said Mortenson.

Team manager Lisa Wright said the team was prepared but in her opinion “didn’t seem to have their hearts in it.”

The loss doesn’t affect the blue and yellow squad’s playoff aspirations as they earned a spot two weeks ago in their 35-0 win over the Gulf Islands Scorpions.

Round one of the playoffs is 4:30 p.m. against Belmont this Friday at Eagle Ridge.

Mortenson encouraged community fans to come out and support their football team.
