Dominant from the start on both offense and defense, the Coleville Wolves football team remained undefeated with a 66-24 road victory against Mono County rival Lee Vining Saturday in Lee Vining, Calif.
The Wolves scored on the third play of the game and never looked back en route to their third straight win of the season.
"I was really happy with the way jumped on them early both offensively and defensively," Coleville coach Will Sandy said. "We got a little sloppy in the second and third quarter when we began to sneak a few subs in, but it is hard to keep your intensity when you're up by some much. It was nice to get everybody lots of playing time."
It all started on the opening series when senior split end Trevor Anderson turned a short reception from quarterback Jason Peters into a 42-yard touchdown. Anderson caught five touchdown passes the week before in Coleville's 56-40 win against Smith Valley.
Coleville's defense came up big when the Lee Vining Tigers (0-2) took possession for their first offensive play as Anderson forced a fumble that was recovered by linebacker Sean Sherlock. The Wolves took only one play to capitalize when Jason Peters hit flanker Dylan Hudson for a 14-yard touchdown pass.
After a three-and-out defensive series, freshman Emmi Sandoval broke two tackles and then dashed 63 yards to score on a punt return. Sandoval also scored on a punt return the week before against Smith Valley.
Peters put the Wolves up by five touchdowns with two short runs in the second quarter.
The Wolves ended the day with 485 offensive yards, led by Peters with 167 yards rushing including 3 touchdown runs and 200 yards passing with 4 touchdown passes and no interceptions. Will Goode rushed for 43 yards and Colton Ward added 36 yards including a 1-yard touchdown plunge.
Anderson led the Coleville receivers with two touchdown catches and 97 receiving yards. Marco Barajas also had strong receiving day adding 89 yards in receptions including a 31-yard touchdown catch.
Sandy extended credit to the offensive line, led by Erik Buehrle, Sean Sherlock, and Jay Clark.
"Those guys had an outstanding day, dominating from start to finish," the coach said.
Defensively, the Wolves were led by Sean Sherlock with 6 solo tackles, 11 assists and 1 fumble recovery. Anderson also contributed 3 solo tackles and 8 assists; while Kyle Tidwell had 2 solos, 8 assists and 1 sack. Marco Barajas intercepted a pass and blocked an extra point attempt.
