Timberland Football Overview

Hayden See, Reporter

Through seven games, the Timberland Wolves’ football team is 2-5.

They are three games below .500, despite having a positive scoring differential. They have tallied 127 points, while allowing only 100. While that is a positive, there’s an explanation for the bad record. Both of their wins have been lopsided. They beat Fort Zumwalt South 48-18 in the third game of the season, and downed Fort Zumwalt East 56-14 in the following week. 

“The blowouts have been fun to watch, for sure,” senior Sophia Giltner said.

Aside from their 30-13 loss to Holt in week two, all of their losses have come with them within 11 points of the winner. Their home road splits are even. They have lost at home twice — to Eureka and Liberty — and lost on the road twice — to Holt and Lafayette. Additionally, they have won once at home – – to Fort Zumwalt East — and won on the road once — to Fort Zumwalt South.

“Timberland has had Fort Zumwalt’s number this year. I’d be shocked if they didn’t continue to take them down,” senior Blake Ebner said. 

They have done well against Fort Zumwalt teams, as they’re 2-0 against them this season. Their remaining schedule contains two more games against Fort Zumwalt teams. If they win out, they’ll finish with a record of 4-5. 

“After their rough beginning, finishing with an even record would be a good ending,” senior Connor Price said.

Their next game is on Friday against Fort Zumwalt North at home.
