WRIGHTSTOWN 16, LITTLE CHUTE 0
LITTLE CHUTE – The Tigers took advantage of two botched punts and an offensive snap that went into the end zone in their victory over the Mustangs at Fitzpatrick Field.
Wrightstown recorded a safety and then Owen Ratkowski recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown off a mishandled punt attempt as the wet conditions played a big factor.
The Tigers (3-2-1, 2-2 North Eastern Conference) capped their scoring with a 6-yard touchdown run from Jacob VanZeeland that was set up by another fumbled punt attempt.
Owen Novitski paced the Tigers defense with four sacks.
“Defensively (the assistant coaches) had a great game plan put together,” Wrightstown head coach Steve Klister said. “We were able to stop the run and we knew they wanted to run the ball against them. But we were able to bottle them up enough.
“Talked to the guys last night about playing all three parts of the game and boy, our special teams came up big tonight.”
