The Wilber-Clatonia football team was firing on all cylinders Friday with a total, complete dismantling of Syracuse. The Wolverines won 60-0.
W-C was up 20-0 after one period and held a 40-0 lead at the half. For the game, the Wolverines had eight rushing touchdowns.
“Our total execution was at a very high level,” W-C head football coach Lynn Jurgens said. “When we do that, we are an extremely tough team.”
W-C had 297 yards on the ground with eight rushing TD’s. Hunter Cerveny, Tad Moldenhauer and Mitchell Thompson each had two touchdowns in the game. Eight W-C players had 15 or more rushing yards in the game. Cerveny had 88 yards rushing, Moldenhauer 49, Coltin Rezabek 45 rushing yards and Thompson 41 yards to lead the Wolverines on the ground.
A punt return for a TD by Tad Moldenhauer was just one of the highlights of the first half. Moldenhauer touched the ball seven times in the game and scored three times. 
His big play ability has Jurgens, and many fans, a little short of breath at times.
“He is one of those kids where everybody holds their breath when he has it because it can go the distance at any time,” Jurgens said.
The Wolverines forced four turnovers against the Rockets.
“We always talk about turnovers and how they can turn a game around. Most of those are caused by hustle plays and playing assignment football,” Jurgens said. 
Michael Pulliam, Nathan Patak and Houston Broz each had an interception in the contest.
Drey Heller and Tyler Hooper each recorded a sack against Syracuse. The freshman tandem of Sawyer Kunc and William Chica led the team in tackles. Kunc had five solo stops and one assisted and Chica had three solo and three assisted tackles against the Rockets, including forcing a fumble.
The team heads on the road this week to Conestoga.
