Football: Coleville falls to Mineral County

The Coleville Wolves lost their first game of the season at Mineral County by a final score of 48-42, but more importantly were eliminated from the playoffs.

Despite ending in a three-way tie for first with Mineral County and Virginia City, Coleville came up on the short end of the tie-breaker.

Virginia City was awarded the number one seed from the West with Mineral County taking the second spot.

“It was a very disappointing end to a very good season,” said Coach Sandy after the game. “We made too many mistakes and couldn’t contain William Middleton who ran all over us for 274 yards and 4 touchdowns. Most of our team will be returning next season and this should really help motivate us over the offseason.”

Quarterback Seth Huhta kept the Wolves in the game with six touchdown passes. Hutha ended the day 13-of-19 for 312 yards through the air.

Nestor Gutierrez was on the receiving end of three of those touchdown passes. Matt Muniz led Coleville with 122 receiving yards including two long touchdown receptions.

Jacob Park had his best rushing day with 217 yards on 22 carries and caught one pass for a 63-yard touchdown.

Tylor Pemberton led Coleville’s defense with 7 solos, 14 assists, and 1 sack. Also having strong defensive games were Nestor Gutierrez with 6 solos and 5 assists, Elisha Pearce-Brown with 2 solos and 8 assists, and Jacob Park with 11 assists.

Coleville ends the 2012 season 3-1 in league play and 8-1 overall.
