Titans prepare for Wolves
RUTHVEN — Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire renews its rivalry with Harris-Lake Park during the Titans’ homecoming week game on Friday.
Both teams are coming off their first wins of the season–GT/RA (1-1) defeated River Valley 36-18, while Harris-Lake Park (1-2) shut down Kingsley-Pierson, 21-0, last Friday.
Both of H-LP’s losses this season came to ranked teams in Remsen-St. Mary’s and Newell-Fonda, so the Wolves’ offense struggled through the first couple games.
H-LP has had more success in the air. Tyce Gunderson took over at quarterback in last week’s win, going 11-of-21 for 160 yards with two touchdowns to one interception. The Wolves have 164 yards on the ground, led by Lucas Gunderson with 102 yards on 36 carries. Dylan Meyer is the top receiver with 10 catches for 264 yards.
GT/RA got its running game going against River Valley last week. Quarterback Max Hough now has 260 yards on 33 carries while Cormick Currans has 42 carries for 135 yards.
In the air, Hough is 11-of-25 for 120 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.
Thanks to six forced turnovers last week, GT/RA now has seven for the second in two games while H-LP has forced just three turnovers total in their three games.
Brock Grimm leads the Titan defense with 20 tackles while Currans and Lucas Rouse each have 14.5 and Drew Schnell has 14.
Tyce Gunderson leads the H-LP defense with 24.5 tackles while Lucas Gunderson has 22.
