Football: Wolves fall in Idaho

 

It was a long ride to Idaho, and likely a longer ride back.

Sequim High's varsity football squad opened their 2012 campaign with a 42-0 loss at the hand of Shelley (Idaho) at the Rocky Mountain Rumble at Idaho State University's Holt Arena in Pocatello on Saturday, Sept. 1.

Shelley led 21-0 at halftime and 35-0 after three quarters.

Despite missing their starting quarterback, the "host" Russetts picked off three Sequim passes and forced seven turnovers overall, including a blocked punt.

Sequim quarterback Jack Wiker threw for 80 yards and rushed for another 46 yards in the loss.

The Wolves (0-1) are back in action this Friday, Sept. 7, in Lacey as they play River Ridge (0-1), who fell to Timberline 20-0 on Aug. 31.
