The Wesleyan Wolves traveled to Webb High School in Knoxville, Tenn.. Going into this game, the Wolves carried a 3-2 record, with their two losses at the hands of Jefferson County and Holy Innocents’ away from home. Away from home again, the Wolves suffered another loss in a high scoring game, with the score of 45-31.

Webb High School had a 5-1 record coming into the game and it displayed a high-powered offense. However, the Wolves hung on with Webb as long as they could. At the end of the first quarter, the Wolves were only down by a score of 10-8. But, they couldn’t keep Webb out of the end zone, and the half ended after Webb scored 13 more points. The third quarter was much of the same story, with Webb outscoring the Wolves to take a commanding 38-17 lead going into the fourth quarter. The Wolves proceeded to outscore Webb in the fourth quarter 14-7, but it was not enough because when the final whistle blew, the game was over at 45-31.

After a high scoring game, head coach Franklin Pridgen said, “[Junior quarterback] Will Anderson and [sophomore wide receiver] Jahmai Jones both played really well.” Anderson finished with 278 yards passing with three touchdowns, including a 60-yard pass to Jones, who caught all three of Anderson’s three touchdown passes and finished with 143 yards receiving. Also contributing to the offensive game, senior Sam Carver finished with 78 yards receiving.

After the second loss in a row, Pridgen said, “Experience is always valuable to a young team, but we needed a win to lift our spirits. Unfortunately, that will have to wait another week.” Now, the Wolves look ahead to their next matchup against Hapeville Charter, a school in their region. This starts off a string of three region games for the Wolves.
