Injuries throughout the season and other personal matters late in the season had the Montgomery Central Timberwolves more shorthanded than usual Friday night when they traveled to Mt. Pleasant where the Tigers were holding Senior Night. 

Timberwolves’ head coach, Benji Brown, was pretty skeptical about his team’s chances of pulling out the win prior to game, saying, “We will have guys playing in positions that they have not played all season. We are about depleted in terms of players, so we’ll just go out there and see what we can do.” 

In a gritty performance on both offense and defense, the Timberwolves went toe-to-toe with the Tigers for three-and-a-half quarters. Down 20 – 19, Montgomery Central faltered down the stretch, allowing the Tigers’ Dalton Miller to break two long runs for touchdowns as the Wolves suffered their third loss in the Rocky River Conference, 33 – 19.
