The Timberwolves overcame multiple personal fouls and won their sixth game 51-14 against the Leander Lions on Oct. 9 at Gupton Stadium.

Throughout the game, CP’s defense managed to prevent Leander from scoring until the end of the second quarter, but CP’s offense was continuously getting penalty after penalty, back-peddling to their problem in past games.

“We are going to just keep playing hard,” junior safety #4 Obinna Odoye said. “Some of the penalties were bad calls and we can’t control that, but we are focused on eliminating as many [penalties] as we can.”

Defensively, CP blocked multiple passes and only allowed two touchdowns for the Lions. 

Our focus is always on us.”

“It felt great [blocking the pass],” senior linebacker #20 Jakob Heins said. “I was just following what the coaches taught me.”

According to offensive coordinator Rob Shoenfeld, defense did let Leander capitalize on a couple big yardage and scoring opportunities due to missed tackles.

“That doesn’t happen often for us and Coach Brittain,” Shoenfeld said. “The defensive staff and players will see to it that it is eliminated in the future.”

In preparation for the Vandegrift game this Friday, CPFB is focusing on their technique and fundamentals, according to Shoenfeld.

“We work technique and fundamentals in all three phases of football: offense, defense, and special teams,” Shoenfeld said. “We may have a game with Vandy this week, but our focus is always on us and working toward being the best team we can be, regardless of the opponent.”
