Mt. Lake Area wasted little time getting on the scoreboard Saturday afternoon, setting the stage for a 36-8 win over Fulda in the season-opening game at Munson Field.
Wolverine senior Chris Boyd took the opening play from scrimmage 54 yards for a touchdown, his first of three scores in the game.
That helped MLA build a 30-0 halftime lead. “Our offensive line really dictated the game, especially early,” MLA Coach Tim Kirk said. “They got a big hole open on the first play from scrimmage and Chris Boyd was able to take it the
distance. We did a nice job putting kids in position to
succeed, and we wanted to see what kids were capable of doing.
“We were able to rotate a lot of guys and keep people fresh,
and everyone did a nice job.
We have a lot of inexperience up front, and they really came to play. The kids really showed they were buying in to what we want to do.”
The game was moved from its original start time of 7 p.m. up to a 1 p.m. start, out of concern over forecasts of severe weather.
While there were dark clouds to the west much of the game, the storms never materialized and the rain stayed away during the game.
