WIC builds momentum, buries IM
Wykons quarterback Neil Tomasoski has a lot of open field ahead of him as he pops through a hole in the Iron Mountain line during West Iron’s 35-3 win Sept. 8. Tomasoski scored three touchdowns in the game.
IRON MOUNTAIN—As we all know, it’s easier to admit to something that’s in the past.
Now that they seem to be past their early-season wobbles, the West Iron Wykons can cop to the fact that there were some worries about where they were headed this season.
“I was nervous after we lost that first week,” WIC coach Mike Berutti said, referring to his team’s 14-12 setback at Bark River-Harris. “And the second week of practice, I thought we didn’t practiced well. We were very unsure and lacking confidence in ourselves. But after that win last week (a 34-30 victory over Hurley), this week’s practice went great.”
So did the game that followed. The Wykons, behind three rushing touchdowns from quarterback Neil Tomasoski, buried an undermanned and overmatched Iron Mountain squad 35-3 on Sept. 8 in Iron Mountain. The Mountaineers suited up just 15 players because of low numbers and a couple of injuries.
