Rebels and Wolves end JV season on a high note

The JV Wolves ended the season with a 24-18 overtime victory over the East Rutherford Cavaliers. The game started on a bad note for Lincolnton.
The Wolves fumbled on the 15-yard line on the second possession and East Rutherford capitalized with a one-yard touchdown run by Eric Brown on fourth down.
Brown scored again to put the Cavs up 12-0. With a minute to go in the half, Jamel Reeves returned a kickoff 70-yards to put the Wolves on the scoreboard and send both teams into the locker room.
In the third quarter, a botched punting attempt gave East Rutherford the ball on Lincolnton’s 40-yard line. Two plays later the Cavs took advantage of the field position and scored on a 30-yard pass to push the lead to 18-6.
After completions to Demory Brewer, Reeves and T.J. Thompson, quarterback Mardriekus Mayfield scored on a 10-yard run to cut the margin to 18-12 with a little over seven minutes to play
With two minutes left, defensive lineman Justin Farley recovered an East Rutherford fumble on the Cavs’ own 20-yard line. Mayfield hit Marcus Williams on a 20-yard screen that went for a touchdown to tie the game sending it into overtime.
In the overtime session, on the second play Phil Robinson scored on a 10-yard lead play to put the Wolves ahead for the first time in the game. On fourth down, Curtis McGill intercepted the ball to seal the victory.
The Wolves’ final season record is 8-2.
“It was just a tenacious fourth quarter effort being behind with just seven minutes to go. I couldn’t think of a better way to end the season,” head coach Fred Dalrymple said.
“That’s something good for them for the future because they know they can come back and win,” he added.
