For the last game of the regular season and Senior night for THS, the 3-5 Wolves took on the 4-4 Ft. Zumwalt North Panthers at Scott Swofford Stadium.
The Wolves kicked off to start the game, and the panthers started their first drive on their own 20 yard line. After a fumble on a pitch to the running back, the wolves recovered on the 18 yard line. Timberland drove down all the way to the 3 yard line, but came up short after going for it on 4th down. The Panthers were the first ones to score on a 15 yard scramble by QB Zach Hillard. On the following drive, the wolves drove down to the Panther 9 yard line, but settled for a field goal by kicker Travis Ardnt, making the score 7-3. After both defenses made numerous stops in the first half, the wolves were the next to get on the board with a 2 yard touch down run by Senior RB Lucas Jordan. The wolves got the ball back with less than a minute to go until halftime. Travis Ardnt scored on a 55 yard touchdown run with only 6 seconds left until halftime. The score at half was 17-7.
Due to a fumbled snap in the end zone in the third quarter, the Wolves scored a safety to go up 19-7. In the same quarter, Lucas Jordan scored again on a 3 yard touchdown run. The wolves defense stayed strong throughout the game, resulting in a 26-7 final score.
Timberland finished the regular season with a 4-5 record. After being 1-4 through week 5, the Wolves have won 3 of the past 4 games. Timberland will play at Hickman next week Friday night for the first playoff game.
