They opened their November schedule by smashing a good Iowa team 51-14.

The Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines will be earning every victory they rack up this season as they tackle the tough Mid-State Conference with a young squad. "Having lost all five starters and 90 percent of the scoring from last year's team we will need to have several players step in to new roles and we continue to try and compete in the very tough Mid-State for another season," WDC head coach Jason Mielke said. Mielke led the Wolverines to a 6-21 record last year in his season as head coach.
