The Timberline Wolves pounced on the Salt Spring Scorpions early Saturday afternoon at Timberline and never let up

Wolves devour the Scorpions

The Timberline Wolves opened their regular season with a 41-0 victory over the visiting Gulf Islands Scorpions on Saturday

The Timberline Wolves opened their regular season with a 41-0 victory over the visiting Gulf Islands Scorpions on Saturday.

Timberline started slowly before quarterback Dylan Tucker connected with wide receiver Greg Perry on a 63-yard pass-and-run play late in the first quarter.

Rob Vlaj then added a 32-yard run to give the Wolves their first score of the game.

“We got off to a slow start, Gulf Islands played our run well, and our short passing game was out of sync, then we started to exploit their sideline with deep passes and finally got moving,” said Wolves Head Coach Martin Jaunzemis.

The combination of Tucker and Perry would account for 176 yards on six receptions and two touchdown scores, of the Wolves’ 319 total passing yards.

Perry had a standout game for the Wolves, accounting for two touchdowns on offence and an interception on defence for another score.

Vlaj also had an outstanding game for the Wolves. Vlaj scored twice on runs of 63 and 32 yards for Timberline and also returned a punt 70 yards to score before it was called back for an unnecessary block in the back.

“Rob had a great game, three scores on three touches, it is unfortunate his punt return came back to the point of foul. Our guys need to be more disciplined and realize when it is time to back off,” said Coach Jaunzemis.

Next up for the Wolves are the GP Vanier Towhees, Sat., October 15 at 1:25 p.m. at Timberline.

“The Vanier game is always a highlight of the season, the football rivalry between the towns goes back well before my time,” said Jaunzemis.
