Timberline Wolves running back Hunter Mackay (33) eludes a Howe Sound block during Saturday’s game at Timberline.

Wolves crush Sounders 42-6

Under the autumn afternoon sun cowbells and clappers and pump-up music get the crowd going

The Timberline Football Team was told they couldn’t play football this year – but they simply didn’t listen and they found a way to step onto the field anyway – winning their second game of the season 42 – 6 against Howe Sound last Saturday on the Timberline Field.

Under the autumn afternoon sun, with cowbells and clappers and pump-up music getting the crowd going, the team, supporters, spectators and media crew were treated to a great passing and running game full of interceptions, literally breathtaking tackles, touchdowns, sacks, incredible line heroics and a push down the field again and again.

Leading by example, the veterans at the heart of the team clearly commanded a never get lazy work ethic during the game.

And just as quickly as they proved they deserved to be on the field, they also proved their character as individual players were quick to praise the effort of the entire team effort for the success of the day.

And the support of the team and the players is offered from beyond the roster.

When Coast Realty became aware of the determination of the young men on the Wolves Football Team to not give up, to not let anyone tell them they couldn’t play football, to stick together and find a way to play their senior year as the team they have been since pee wee – in Brian Bailey’s memory, at the Home Opener football game at center field last Saturday, Coast presented the Wolves with a $1,000.00 donation to help keep the team together and moving forward.

The next game is on Saturday, Oct 13 at 1:30 p.m. on the Timberline field.
