The Wolves rolled into Dundee looking for their 3rd win on the bounce, and boy did they get it in emphatic style with a total team performance with scores on offence defence and special teams, a 52-7 win puts them in 2nd place with a 4-2 record.
The day started badly as Dundee QB Adam Ingram threw an inch perfect pass to Craig Denham on the wolves sideline, Wolves safety dave ellen tipped the pass only to see it fall into the hands on the speedster from Dundee as he raced in for a 50 yd td and a 7-0 lead afte the extra point was duley converted….that was Dundees first and last visit inside the wolves redzone.
The wolves hit back with a Tony Pinkerton run and tied the game up when Murray Rendall nailed the extra point 7-7
Rendal put the Wolves in front with a 27 yd fg 7-10.
QB Jamie Morrison again got the offense moving with a couple of nice qb runs and some short passing. Wolves defense stepped up and made Dundee constantly punt on 4th down and giving the Offense great field position.
Steve “big mac” Macfarlane hauled in a couple of clutch passes and finished the drive with a beautiful catch and run into the endzone. 7-17
Next up was an interception by corner Mike Rodger who weaved into the Dundee end zone from about 40 yards out…this made up for teammate Calum Buchan’s earlier drop that would have earned him his second TD in 2 games off interceptions. 7-24
The lack of numbers on the Hurricanes sideline started to show as the Wolves defense seemed to have the measure of them.
Scores by Andy Maciver and Dave Orr put the Wolves up 38-7 at the half.
The second half saw the wolves getting new and inexperienced players much needed game experience. Special teams chipped in with a fantastic Stuart Harrison punt return that went for 6 with the extra point again slotted home by the almost robotic kicking of Murray Rendall. 7-45
The final score came from RB Tony Pinkerton on a bruising run into the endzone 7-52 to the wolves was the final score.
HC Don Edmosnton was very happy with the overall performance and how many players seemed to have stepped up and the play of the 2nd and 3rd string players. “we started flat but soon got into our stride,, the buzzwords for today was concentration and execution, i felt we had both” commented Edmonston.
The next game for the Wolves is at home, Meadowbank stadium, on july the 12 as they take on the Glasgow Tigers who lost 0-27 today at the hands of the Clyde Valley Blackhawks.
