â€œWe had a good tenacious effort on defense. They drove it 70 yards on the first drive and we turned them back on the three and they (the defense) just improved as the game went along,â€ head coach Fred Dalrymple said.
The Wolves up their record to 5-1.
West Lincoln beat Newton-Conover 16-13. The Rebelsâ€™ offense couldnâ€™t get going due to a strong Newton run defense in the first half.
So the Rebels went to the air. Jake Watts hit Payden Houser for a touchdown that made the score 8-7 Westâ€™s lead at the half.
With three minutes remaining West tried in gain to stop Newton putting the Devils ahead 13-8.
Watts hooked up with Logan Shronce for the go-ahead score. Jordan Leonhardt sealed the win with an interception.
The Rebels are 3-2 on the season and will play Shelby next week.
