Wakefield​ ​Victorious​ ​In​ ​Home​ ​Opener

WAKEFIELD –  ​The​ ​Trojan’s​ ​defended​ ​home​ ​field​ ​on​ ​Friday​ ​night​ ​with​ ​a​ ​46-16​ ​win against​ ​Pender.​ ​Wakefield’s​ ​defense​ ​was​ ​big​ ​reason​ ​the​ ​Trojans​ ​got​ ​the​ ​W,​ ​not​ ​allowing​ ​a single​ ​point​ ​in​ ​the​ ​second​ ​half.

Neither​ ​team​ ​scored​ ​on​ ​the​ ​opening​ ​possession​ ​of​ ​the​ ​ball​ ​game,​ ​but​ ​both​ ​scored​ ​on​ ​the second.​

​First​ ​it​ ​was​ ​Wakefield​ ​with​ ​a​ ​20​ ​yard​ ​rush​ ​from​ ​junior​ ​running​ ​back​ ​Esgar​ ​Godinez​ ​to give​ ​the​ ​Trojans​ ​a​ ​6-0​ ​lead.​ ​Pender​ ​followed​ ​suit​ ​with​ ​a​ ​25​ ​yard​ ​passing​ ​score​ ​from​ ​senior​ ​QB Brady​ ​Oliver​ ​to​ ​back​ ​Jared​ ​Tyrrell​ ​along​ ​with​ ​a​ ​​two-point​ ​conversion​ ​from​ ​Oliver​ ​to Layne​ ​Heese​ ​who​ ​made​ ​a​ ​one​ ​handed​ ​catch​ ​in​ ​the​ ​back​ ​of​ ​the​ ​endzone​ ​to​ ​give​ ​the​ ​Pendragons an​ ​8-6​ ​lead.

Later​ ​in​ ​the​ ​half​ ​Wakefield​ ​scored​ ​on​ ​a​ ​23​ ​yard​ ​pass​ ​from​ ​junior​ ​QB​ ​Solomon​ ​Peitz​ ​to​ ​senior​ ​TE Julio​ ​Sanchez​ ​to​ ​put​ ​the​ ​Trojans​ ​back​ ​on​ ​top​ ​14-8​ ​after​ ​back​ ​Dylon​ ​Harder​ ​caught​ ​a​ ​swing​ ​pass on​ ​the​ ​two​ ​point​ ​conversion.

Towards​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​the​ ​first​ ​half​ ​Wakefield​ ​scored​ ​again​ ​on​ ​a​ ​3​ ​play​ ​65​ ​yard​ ​drive​ ​capped​ ​off​ ​by a​ ​63​ ​yard​ ​rushing​ ​score​ ​from​ ​Godinez,​ ​his​ ​second​ ​of​ ​the​ ​half.​ ​Pender​ ​retaliated​ ​with​ ​just​ ​over​ ​a minute​ ​to​ ​play​ ​in​ ​the​ ​second​ ​quarter​ ​with​ ​a​ ​one​ ​yard​ ​score​ ​from​ ​junior​ ​Jaydon​ ​Jump​ ​to​ ​make​ ​the score​ ​20-16​ ​at​ ​the​ ​break.

In​ ​the​ ​second​ ​half​ ​it​ ​was​ ​all​ ​Wakefield. ​​The​ ​Trojan​ ​defense​ ​forced​ ​a​ ​fumble​ ​right​ ​away​ ​deep​ ​in Pender​ ​territory​ ​which​ ​led​ ​to​ ​points​ ​for​ ​the​ ​Wakefield​ ​offense​ ​on​ ​a​ ​five​ ​yard​ ​score​ ​from​ ​back Noah​ ​Lamprecht.

Later​ ​it​ ​was​ ​another​ ​Peitz​ ​to​ ​Sanchez​ ​connection, ​this​ ​time​ ​from​ ​50​ ​yards​ ​out​ ​making​ ​the​ ​score 32-16​ ​at​ ​the​ ​end​ ​of​ ​the​ ​third​ ​quarter.

In​ ​the​ ​fourth​ ​it​ ​was​ ​Dylon​ ​Harder​ ​scoring​ ​from​ ​one​ ​yard​ ​out​ ​capping​ ​off​ ​an​ ​11​ ​play​ ​82​ ​yard​ ​drive giving​ ​Wakefield​ ​a​ ​40-16​ ​lead​ ​with​ ​eight​ ​minutes​ ​to​ ​play. Peitz​ ​found​ ​his​ ​way​ ​to​ ​the​ ​endzone​ ​on​ ​a​ ​quarterback​ ​sneak​ ​from​ ​10​ ​yards​ ​out​ ​to​ ​put​ ​the exclamation​ ​point​ ​on​ ​the​ ​home​ ​opening​ ​win​ ​for​ ​the​ ​Trojans.

Wakefield​ ​is​ ​now​ ​4-0​ ​on​ ​the​ ​season​ ​as​ ​they​ ​host​ ​Plainview​ ​next​ ​week.​ Pender​ ​is​ ​now​ ​1-2,​ ​they​ ​host​ ​Homer​ ​next​ ​Friday.
