  • Last Friday night the Biggs Wolverines continued their winning ways and improved to 8-0 with a 49-0 win over the University Prep Panthers. Biggs has averaged over 40 points a game this season, while only allowing less than 10. Nathan Callaway eclipsed the millennium mark on Friday night by racking up 137 yards on the ground, while making four trips to the Promised Land Friday night. Callaway picked up two of those scores on the ground, while another was on a 19-yard pass from Blaine Roles. His fourth score came on a 60-yard pick six. Quarterback Blaine Roles had another great game, completing 5 of 8 passes for 74 yards with a pair of touchdown passes—one to Callaway, and a 14-yarder to TE Caleb Melton—and a 34-yard score of his own. Greyson Milburn bulled his way in for the other Wolverine score, and Israel Farfan was once again perfect in PAT attempts, going seven for seven. Defensively Biggs posted their second shut out of the season. Melton led the Wolverine tacklers with 13 tackles. Milburn picked up an interception and a sack, while Mason Clark recovered a fumble. The game was delayed several times for U-Prep injuries, including a scary moment after Blaine Roles knocked out a Panther lineman from his linebacker position. The stage is now set for a thriller at Kalbach stadium this Friday night. The Maxwell Panthers bring their 5-2 record to town, with losses to Bradshaw Christian of Sacramento and Williams earlier in the season. Both the Panthers and the Wolverines are 3-0 in league play and have played the upper crust of the Mountain Valley League already. Friday night's game will decide who will take the MVL title this season, as well as the No.1 seed in the Division IV postseason that begins in three weeks.
