Unleashed, unstoppable: Wolves finally get on the field, blow out Northeast Range

by Tom Coombe
The Northeast Range Nighthawks were in a tough spot on Friday night.
Not only were they visiting defending section champion Ely on the Timberwolves’ home turf, they were facing a powerful, state-ranked team that was hungry for action after nearly four weeks of practice.
Within minutes of the opening kickoff, the Timberwolves unleashed their fury, scoring three touchdowns in the first eight minutes and 44 points in the first half en route to a 52-0 thrashing before a packed house at Ely School Stadium.
Idled an extra week because of a forfeit win in the season-opener, the Wolves were downright rabid prior to kickoff and once the game got underway.
“I don’t think I’ve ever had a team so fired up to play a game,” said Ely Head Coach Brian Lamppa. “In the warm-ups, in the locker room before we went out. There was just a lot of excitement.”
