Mt. Lake Area had a short field to work with nearly the entire second half, scoring on five drives of two plays or fewer and one interception return. That led to a 77-0 homecoming night victory over Southwestern United Friday at Mt. Lake.

The Wolverine defense did not allow a first down for the Wildcats in the first half and started seven straight drives in Wildcat territory.

MLA got the scoring started on a 33-yard run by Carter Kirk. After a Wildcat turnover, Kirk scored on a 9-yard run for a quick 16-0 lead.

Following a short Wildcat punt, Rodney scored on the next play on a 35-yard touchdown run. SWU fumbled a snap on its next play, with MLA scoring one play later on a 19-yard run by Kirk. Following a long punt return by the Wolverines, Kirk capped another one-play drive with a 25-yard touchdown run. Then, on SWU's next series, Hempeck intercepted a pass, returning it 25 yards for a score and a 63-0 lead with over five minutes to go in the first half.

With the clock running the entire second half, the Wolverines tacked on a pair of touchdowns. Chris Boyd scored on a 25-yard run and Logan Johnson scored on a 47-yard run.
