Harris-Lake Park Football Advances To UNI-Dome

Fri 11-4-2016

What a scene Friday night in Lake Park as the Harris-Lake Park Wolves defeated Ar-We-Va 44-36 to advance to the UNI-Dome.

 

The crowd was electric well before the first snap as they were treated to a beautiful night for early November football and treated to a terrific football game.  Trevor Gunderson led the Wolves with 4 touchdowns, three rushing and a 22 yard halfback pass back to Bryce Perkins.  Gunderson knew coming in that he would have to carry a majority of the offense because quarterback Perkins still wasn't 100 percent.  Gunderson finished the night with 221 yards rushing,  70 yards receiving and 22 yards passing.

 

H-LP took a 24-14 lead into halftime before they score two touchdowns in a span of 6 seconds to start the 2nd half.  Gunderson threw the touchdown to Perkins 1:31 into the 2nd half before Braeton Nitzchke intercepted Rockets quarterback Jake Danner 6 seconds later and ran it in 15 yards for the touchdown that extended the Wolves lead to 37-14.

 

The Wolves led by as many as 30 before the Rockets mounted a comeback that ultimately came up short.

 

The Wolves have advanced to play in the UNI-Dome for the first time in their history as they'll square off against Fremont-Mills, Tabor next Thursday in the 8-man semifinals.  Kickoff around 12:05 PM on Q 102.
