Both Woodbury Central and IKM-Manning entered the game with different offensive styles. Even despite the damp and rainy conditions it was Woodbury Central that walked away with a 14-0 victory.
The game started with Woodbury Central using their passing game to power through the heavy air that loomed over Manning.
Late in the first quarter Woodbury Central quarterback Jase Manker was able to connect with Beau Klingensmith with a 16-yard field goal to take a 7-0 lead.
The Wolves went to work using mostly the running game, but weren’t able to score for the rest of the first half.
Early in the third quarter it was Woodbury Central that struck again.
Fans for the Wolves might have had a bit of deja vu on the second scoring play as Manker was once again able to throw the ball to Klingensmith for the touchdown. This time the throw came from 23-yards out, allowing Woodbury Central to take the win.
Neither team would score for the rest of the game.
