By Jay Davis
Herreid-Selby Area took the lead on the opening kickoff and never looked back. The Wolverines raised their record to 3-0 with a 52-0 win over Stanley County in Selby on Friday.
The visitors kicked off to start the game and Nick Larson took the football back 90 yards to the end zone to give the home crowd a reason to roar and the home team a quick 8-0 lead. The Wolverines scored on a Cooper Schaefbauer three-yard run on their next possession to take a 16-0 lead with more than half the first quarter still on the clock.
The Wolverines put the game out of reach with three second-quarter touchdown runs. Dakota Houck got the run started with a 24-yard scoring jaunt. Stanley County held until late when Herreid-Selby Area scored two quick touchdowns late in the quarter. Zach Geller scored the first on a 17-yard run. Larson scored the second from one yard out.
The Wolverines made the second half a short one. Geller gave Herreid-Selby Area a 46-0 lead with an 18-yard touchdown before Austin Iverson ended the game with a one-yard touchdown run.
