The Wolfpack made it clear they were not thinking about their matchup with South O'Brien next week in a key district showdown. Western Christian rushed for 277 yards, led by Drew Van Sloten's 161 yards. "We played a very good, mistake-free game. We took advantage of their turnovers and their short offensive possessions and put points on the board quickly" said Western Chris- tian coach Travis Kooima. "Up front we did a great job controlling the line of scrim- mage and giving our run- Jacob Van Ginkel (52) and Jeffrey Granstra (12) combine to put a stop to the run by Austin Fox (5) of Okoboji.

Dan- iel Van Maanen followed that up with two touchdown tosses to BradyVan't Hul from sev- en yards out, and Ethan Fenchel from 27 yards. Western Christian led 28-0 after only one quarter. Keeping the pressure on offensively in the second quarter, Fenchel ripped off a 45-yard run for his second score of the night. Van SIo- ten put another one in from one yard and Van't Hul added his second score on a 28-yard run to make it 48-0. Jacob Johnson provided the final score on a 26-yard interception return just before the half. Defensively, the Wolfpack held the Pioneers to 131 yards while forcing three Pioneer turn- overs. "Defensively we did a great job reading our keys and took advantage when Okoboji made mistakes. I thought we tackled better tonight and we made sure their athletes didn't make any big plays," Kooima said. Fenchel ended the day with 47 yards on only two carries. Van't Hul had 38 yards and two carries. Van Maanen finished 4-for-5 with two scores and an interception. Jeffrey Grans- tra led the receiving core with two catches and 32 yards. Granstra also led the charge on defense, in on 21 stops. Jacob Van Ginkel had six solo stops with 11 assists. Taylor Miedema had an interception. With the win, the Wolfpack keep their hopes of a district title alive but will have to win a big matchup with South O'Brien (7-1,4-1) on the road next week to wrap up the regular season. "We have a tough opponent next week in South O'Brien, they are a big physical team and we are going to have to figure out a way to stop their running game" Kooima said.

The Wolfpack clinched the top spot in the Lakes Conference Monday night at Cherokee (Photo/Jeff Bylsma). Western Christian committed a few too many hitting errors in game one but eventually found its rhythm and settled in to the 25-15 win. Game two was much of the same as the Wolfpack went through the motions a little too much, but still snagged the win 25-14. "1 really challenged them to step up and each do their job in whatever their role was and we did a much better job of that which is reflective in the score," said Western Christian coach Tammi Ver Beek.
