GLENVILLE &045; At times, the Glenville-Emmons Wolverines generated some offense and moved the football.

They just couldn’t sustain it.

The Wolverines gave up seven quarterback sacks that kept them out of the end zone in a 26-0 homecoming loss to Lyle/Austin Pacelli at Glenville Friday night.

“We’d get things moving, then we’d give up a sack that took us right out of it,” said Wolverines coach Ryan Wangen. “It’s a tough loss for us, but the guys need to come back Monday and pick things up.”

Along with the sacks, the visitors came up with big plays on the other side of the ball, scoring on runs of 39, 23 and 35 yards and on a 38-yard pass.

“Defensively, we gave up four big plays, and that was basically the difference,” said Wangen. “Offensively, we need to create more big plays.”

The Wolverines totaled 139 yards, 78 rushing and 61 passing as Mike Yocom completed nine of 21 passes with three interceptions.

Kris Knutson led G-E in rushing with 37 yards on 10 carries. Derek Lau caught four passes for 34 yards.

Knutson’s 16 tackles paced the defense. Lau and Jake Hansen had nine tackles apiece.

The Wolverines’ record fell to 2-4 overall and 2-3 in the Southern Confederacy Conference. They travel to unbeaten Nicollet this Friday.
