HANCOCK—A pair of long scoring drives plus a shut-down defense boosted West Iron’s record back to .500 here Oct. 12, when the Wykons earned a 17-7 victory over the Bulldogs.
With a win over Bark River-Harris at home on Oct. 19, the Wykons would finish their season with a winning record. Going in, they are 4-4 overall and 3-3 in the West Pac Conference.
“Our defense played its responsibilities,” said Coach Mike Berutti after the game. “The defensive line changed the line of scrimmage, and our linebackers filled well. It was good to see.”
