This Prep Bowl matchup between the Mountain Lake Area Wolverines and the Hancock Owls was a tale of two halves. The first half had most the scoring and the second half was all defense! (I miss the actual game. I watched the highlights on replay.)
Hancock’s QB Preston Rohloff opened the game tossing a beautiful pass in the back of the end zone for WR Daniel Milander to go up and get. The Owls’ DE Matt Thompson intercepted a pass and returned it 33 yards for the next TD, dragging defenders for the last 6 yards. Rohloff connected with WR Beau Kellenberger for the 2-point conversion. The Wolverines went on a hot streak after that, RB Mace Herrig fought his way in from 3 yards out to get Mountain Lake on the board. QB Abraham Stoesz found TE Adam Karschnik for an 11 yard score right before half, then hit him again for the 2-point conversion tying the game at 14 apiece. Stoesz had the only score of the second half running his way in from 5 yards out and then found WR Brett Willaby for the 2-point conversion to get the Wolverines the lead and the eventual victory.
