    GO WOODSTOCK

    MARIETTA — Three turnovers nearly cost Woodstock its unblemished record Friday night, but the Wolverines stood tough and punched in two late touchdowns to secure a 51-42 win over Lassiter in Frank Fillmann Stadium.

    The Wolverines (4-0, 2-0 Region 5AAAAAA) stormed out to a 28-7 lead early into the second quarter, but The Trojans (0-4, 0-2) kept fighting and cut the lead to 35-21 before halftime. Woodstock gave up the lead it had all game in the fourth quarter, but the Wolverines never stopped fighting for the win.

    “I am just happy for our kids. This is a very special group,” Woodstock coach Brent Budde said. “For them to keep fighting like that when things were getting down was a great thing to see.”

    It’s a fight Budde would no doubt like to see in two weeks, when the Wolverines host archrival Etowah in a battle of unbeatens.

    Woodstock coughed the ball up on the final play of the first half — for the first turnover of the game by either team — but Lassiter could not go the length of the field for a tying score.

    The Trojans kept the turnovers coming in the second half, forcing and recovering three Woodstock fumbles, including one on the first play from scrimmage in the second half. Lassiter turned the three turnovers into 14 points and took a 42-38 lead with 8:15 to play in the game.

    “We told the defense at halftime that we needed to get a turnover. They gave us three turnovers and we scored on two of them,” Lassiter coach Jep Irwin said. “I am really, really proud of this team and how they fought back. We are getting close. We just have to keep fighting and keep working, but I am really proud of our team.”

    There may have been adversity in the second half, but Budde said his team was not going to let the game slip away.

    “This is a group of seniors, led by our quarterback, Justin Agner, and he just rallied the offense,” Budde said. “He wasn’t going to let us go down. The offensive line did a great job, the running backs just hit their holes and the receivers did a great job.”

    Woodstock ran all over Lassiter, to the tune of 445 yards rushing as a team. Deante Robinson rushed for 215 yards and five touchdowns on 25 carries, and Donovan Brand added 130 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. Reagan Amos chipped in five carries for 60 yards.

    “We have to hang our hat on running that ball a little bit. Hopefully, that opens up the pass a little bit,” Budde said. “We take a lot of pride in that. We have to go back and work on our passing game because, sooner or later, people are going to load the box on us.”

    After Lassiter grabbed its first lead of the game with 8:15 left to go, the Wolverines drove 85 yards, capped by a 3-yard touchdown run from Robinson to give Woodstock the lead back at 45-42. After the Trojans came up 2 yards short on a fake punt on fourth down, Robinson ran in from 20 yards out three plays later to give the Wolverines a two-score lead at 51-42.

    Budde said he was pleased with how his team fought through the turnover struggles in the second half.

    “To come back and do what we did there at the end, I couldn’t be more proud of them,” he said.
