Defensively, the Timberwolves were anchored by tough play from linemen Sonny Edward, Josh Boesp-flug, and Nicholas Kirkland. Cranking up the defensive pressure, Brock Gydesen, stepped in front of a Canby pass for an interception, stopping cold a Canby drive. With three minutes to go in the game, Tuala-tin turned the ball over to Canby on downs at their own 40 yard line, and with Tualatin only up by six points. The tough Timberwolf defense bent, but did not break with time expiring and Canby on the Tuala-tin 15 yard line.
Tualatin Gray takes on Newberg this Saturday at Tualatin High School.
Tigard White 20, Tualatin Black 6
The season finally got underway on Saturday at Tigard High School where the young third/fourth-grade Tualatin Black team took the field for its their first battle of the season. Tualatin took the opening kickoff out to the 40 yard line to get things started. The Wolves offense wasn't quite in sync yet, lost the opening snap and quickly had to play defense on a short field. Tigard capitalized and scored the first points of the game on a TD run.
The Wolves offense took the field with 7 minutes to go in the first quarter and quickly settled into a groove. The drive began with a 30 yard burst by Davis Friesen who had a huge lane that was opened up by Ethan Hutchison and Kaelan Santana. The very next play saw Sam Smith attacking the middle of the de-fense running behind Sean Irvin with a tackle breaking 15yd scamper up the middle of the field. Those 2 plays ignited the Wolves offense as they chewed up the clock and the Tigard defense by dominating the line of scrimmage and securing the football at the end of each play. The drive was capped off by a beauti-ful little 12 yard right side run into the end zone from Friesen led by a great block by Mikel Madarieta which tied the game at 6-6.
Our boys went back out on defense and looked better as they seemed to shake some of the butterflies. Austin Donahue put a hit on the Tigard RB in the backfield that was heard at Cook Park! This was fol-lowed by a nice 2nd down tackle by Blake Jackson and another big stick by Aidan Lippy which set up a 4th and 1. Unfortunately, the boys jumped offside on a sneaky long count and gave Tigard a 1st down and new life. Tigard quickly handed it off to a speedy RB who broke free and scored a TD to take the lead 12-6.
The Wolves got the ball back in good position thanks to Cade Tillema's 17 yard kickoff return run and some great blocking by the Special teams. The offense was able to move the ball at times and had a few solid runs but a penalty stopped their drive and forced a punt. Riley MacLean got off a very nice 22yd punt to pin Tigard deep in their own territory with 2 minutes remaining in the 1st half. The green D quickly came out and looked very impressive! Jake Reser made the best tackle of the day by bringing down an elusive and speedy Tigard back that was one step away from a big gainer. The Wolves stopped the Tigard attack by staying in their lanes and shifted the momentum back to their side to stay within a touchdown at halftime.
The Wolves started the 3rd quarter on Defense with another great effort! Tigard would try the left side and our linebackers would shut it down. Then they would try the middle and Adam Case and Donahue didn't allow anything to get through. Then they tried the right side and Lippy chased down their back from behind and got the Wolves D off the field!
The Wolves got the ball and started to make their move with runs of 7 and 15 yards respectively by Friesen who was clearly in a groove and getting key blocks by Caleb Richards and Casey Raz. The Wolves pushed the ball past midfield and looked as though they were going to make a move but the drive stalled on a 3rd and long. MacLean made another nice punt and the Wolves D went back out in the heat to try and get a stop.
We had them at 3rd and long with 5 minutes to go in the game and a chance to get the ball back but Ti-gard snuck in a first down. Then they began to slow down the offensive plays and chipped away at our defense and the time clock. The Wolves played well on this drive and in an attempt to get the ball back, started going after the ball which resulted in a broken tackle and a score for Tigard to make it 20-6 late in the 4th quarter. We finished strong on offense with good ball handling and some strong runs but the clock ran out and the ballgame came to an end.
The kids played hard and were coached very well! I know we are all very proud of their efforts today and I have a feeling we are going to see great things from these boys this season! Keep your heads up Wolves and let's go get a win next weekend against Scappoose!
