KEOSAUQUA — Winfield-Mt. Union’s Max Fricke ran for 130 yards and threw for 107 more in a 32-22 loss at Van Buren on Friday.

The Wolves fall to 2-6 on the season and 1-5 in Class A District 5 with the loss. Van Buren improves to 4-4 overall and 3-3 in the district.

Fricke had a hand in all three W-MU touchdowns in the game.

He was 6-for-14 passing in the game with two scores.

Garret Baker had a 14-yard touchdown reception and Kolt Rossiter caught an 11-yard touchdown pass.

The Wolves’ other touchdown came on a two-yard run by Fricke.

Fricke and Thayne McElhinney each rushed for a two-point conversion.

McElhinney had 82 rushing yards on the night and Darren Hunter picked up 19 yards.

Baker had two receptions for 68 yards. Hunter had a 15-yard catch; Lake Carlson made a 7-yard catch and Jake Edwards had a 6-yard reception.

Defensively, Kyle Davis had a team-high 13 tackles. Edwards made 11 tackles.

Carlson, Tamie Fenton, Sam Jennings and Rossiter had seven tackles apiece.

Davis, Edwards and Fenton each had a solo tackle for loss.

Colton Hinkle recovered a fumble in the game.

Next up for the Wolves is the final regular-season game of the year. They play at New London in a Henry County matchup — the second in a row for New London, which hosted WACO last week.

The Wolves look to snap a four-game losing streak against the Tigers, and, after two straight losses, the Tigers will be looking for a win in their senior night contest against the Wolves.

Kickoff for Friday’s game is scheduled for 7 p.m.
