WINFIELD — You can chalk up Winfield-Mt. Union’s home opener as a learning experience. The young Wolves ran into a tough Lisbon team and the W-MU offense couldn’t get anything going in a 42-0 loss.

The lack of offensive production led to plenty of opportunities for the Lions and dual-threat quarterback Jake Jennet, who threw two touchdown passes in the first quarter to give Lisbon an early 13-0 lead.

The game stayed relatively close until midway through the second quarter when Lisbon was able to pull away. Jennet ran for a 26-yard touchdown and the Lions added two more rushing touchdowns in the period. A two-point conversion on the last touchdown made up for a previous mixed extra point and it was 35-0 at halftime.

Kaleb Hagge’s kick off in the third quarter was returned 70 yards for a touchdown by Lisbon’s Austin Krob. The extra point stretched the lead to 42-0, both defenses held for the rest of the game as the scoring stopped.

Christian Gerot went 4-12 under center for W-MU, passing for 29 yards. His leading receiver was freshman Jacob Ford, who caught three passes for 24 yards. John Day had 12 yards receiving and both Dawson Boal and Andrew Brady caught one pass for five yards.

Day and Graham Hagge each ran for 29 yards in the loss. Daunte Oepping ran for 10 yards and Josh Burroughs ran for eight yards.

G. Hagge led the team defensively with four tackles. Kyle Giese had 3.5 tackles. Juanito Piper finished with 2.5 tackles.

Carter Hinkle had the lone takeaway for the Wolves. He finished with one fumble recovery.

The Wolves fell to 0-2 on the year and will take on Wapello in their last non-district game on Friday, Sept. 1. The Indians are 1-0, having been shut out 25-0 by New London in their first game.
