The game of football is meant to be played with passion and emotion.
And from the words of Wilber-Clatonia head coach Lynn Jurgens, that’s exactly what his team did on Friday, securing their second shutout of the season in the Wolverines 37-0 victory at Freeman – a team that was 3-1 coming into the game.
“We played the game the way it is meant to be played and that is with emotion and passion.  Our kids played extremely hard and that helps even when execution is not always the greatest,” Jurgens said.
Wilber-Clatonia’s defense scored their first two touchdowns of the season on a pair of interceptions returned for touchdowns. Senior Coltin Rezabek and junior Trevor Kvasnicka each had claimed one pick six.
Mason Zimmerman also had a fumble recovery for the Wolverines to total three takeaways on Freeman’s home field.
“Our seniors really had a great game tonight and Trevor Kvasnicka had a huge night. Deitrick Baker played extremely hard as well,” Jurgens said. “We lined up correctly and played assignment football, which we have not always done in the past and that makes a huge difference. Our kids also communicated better than they have all year and that helped out as well.”
Wilber-Clatonia quarterback, Michael Pulliam, recorded a pair of touchdowns through the air. Junior Tad Moldenhauer was on the receiving end of one of the aerial scores– his first receiving score of the season. Pulliam ended the game with 153 yards on 6-of-12 passing. 
Moldenhauer led the team in the receiving department with three catches for 86 yards. Zimmerman brought in the other passing touchdown for the Wolverines.
On the ground, Wilber-Clatonia had six different ball carriers tot the rock 34 times for 131 yards. Moldenhauer also led the team in rushing yards with 48 on a team-high 11 carries. Hunter Cerveny was the lone ball carrier to record a touchdown for the Wolverines.
Cerveny also had a sack and blocked punt in the contest.
After a scoreless first quarter, Wilber-Clatonia tallied 14 points in the second quarter and 23 in the third quarter.
The Wolverines now claim a 4-1 record heading into a home game against Johnson County Central on Friday. 
Wilber-Clatonia has outscored their opponents by a combined 163-31 in their four wins.
