The Woodland Hills football team has suffered its share of setbacks this season.
But the Wolverines had a vintage performance Friday night. Woodland Hills rolled over Kiski Area, 47-0, for a nonconference win at the Wolvarena.
“The guys came out ready to play,” Woodland Hills coach Tim Bostard said. “We didn’t play our best game, nor did we play a perfect game. We had a couple guys banged up, and I know Kiski had a couple of players out. Neither team was at full strength, and I think that made a difference.”
The Wolverines (2-5, 1-4) marched 57 yards to the Kiski Area 8-yard line on their opening drive, sparked by eight carries and 54 yards from running back Anthony Merideth. But three penalties — a false start, an illegal shift and a hold — pushed Woodland Hills back, and it settled with a 36-yard field goal from Charles Hanchett.
“I have been telling the kids every week that we need to minimize our mistakes,” Bostard said. “It seems every time we get inside the 20-yard line, we make some mistakes. It is a point of emphasis for us.”
