Wolves do not horse around with Trojans

"Trailing 28-0 by the end of the first quarter the Olympic High School football team was trying to figure out what just hit them.A train in the form of the South Kitsap Wolves rolled into Silverdale Stadium Thursday night and pummeled Olympic 42-0 in a Narrows League Bridge Division contest.The Wolves (5-0, 5-1 overall) punished the Trojans in all facets of the game.Having scored 35 of its 42 points in the first half, SK gained nearly 200 yards of offense compared to Olympic's minus-10 yards.When the final gun sounded, SK rushed for 245 yards while Olympic was able to muster only 34 yards on the ground.SK junior running back Ryan Cole was unstoppable, carrying the ball 10 times for 122 yards (114 in the first half) and four touchdowns.He has a league-leading 1,064 yards on ground this season.SK sophomore running back Victor Valle had 10 carries in the second half for 85 yards.Valle's final run of 24 yards looked long enough for a touchdown but the referee spotted the ball outside the goaline.Junior back-up quarterback Travis Vetters completed four of six passes for 58 yards, including a one-yard touchdown strike to junior Sean Banks midway through the fourth quarter.SK's total domination over Olympic allowed coach Pete Weymiller to fire some ammunition at his players.At halftime I said 'this is the kind of competition we need, Weymiller said. This is the level of competition we need to reach. This should inspire you to get in the weightroom during the offseason'. After shocking Peninsula 33-13 last week, SK players said they were a little shocked at the lopsided victory but was quick to point out the Wolves' preparedness for this game.We prepare for this team like we're playing state champions, Cole said. We want to play all 48 minutes. Today in the first half we came out on fire, got some good runs and great blocks. We came out and played South Kitsap football.Weymiller said SK had not just the physical tools but a mental edge as well.I think our players were intimidated a little bit, Weymiller said. It was a weightlifting strength confidence they had over us. Our kids are just not real strong. We need to commit ourselves to strength. Strength builds confidence. Confidence is the main thing.SK starting quarterback Anthony Fein said this is a good game for other teammates to get some playing time and work on improving every week.They work hard in practice just like we do, Fein said. We're getting better every week but every week we still find things that we can do better.SK coach D.J. Sigurdson said he was pleased with his team's ability to slam the door on Olympic early in the game.I was just really happy with our kids' effort right out of the blocks, Sigurdson said. "
