Miscues cost Wolverines on rain-soaked field

Wet turf is supposed to "even the playing field," but that was not the case last Friday when Tom VanErp's Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines hosted Staples-Motley.


"We 'unevened' it by fumbling seven times," VanErp said. The Cardinals parlayed those miscues into a 38-0 victory on a night which saw both teams play football in a steady rain.

The Wolverines lost the ball three times on turnovers while the Cards lost it twice.
