A glimmer of hope had once again swung in the direction of the Wolverines. Behind the offensive line junior QB Jake Lambert pushed into the endzone on a quarterback sneak to score the game winning touchdown.
RB/CB Maurice Gilliam put forth a tremendous game and helped keep the Wolverines in the battle despite his fumble at the Clinton 2 yard line. We had him down for 14 carries and 80 yards including 1 touchdown. He also caught 2 passes for 13 yards as well. QB Jake Lambert scored the game winner but was impressive throughout the game completing 17-26 passes for 259 yards and a touchdown.
Standout Wolverine CB/WR Dominique Woodruff also put up big numbers on the night with 9 catches for 161 yards and a touchdown. He also scored another touchdown on the ground finishing with 4 carries for 9 yards.
For the Red Devils their punishing ground game was lead by Matt Ligon who had 115 yards and 3 touchdowns on 21 carries. Teammate Taviouzie Booker also broke the century mark rushing 15 times for 114 yards.
The Wolverine victory over the Red Devils was the first in 13 yards. Head coach Brian Lane had this to say afterwards, "We never gave up even when it looked like we were out."
Good fortune may not always shine on you but if you don't put forth the effort and play every second then you never know what may happen. The Wolverines are proof positive of that.
