Two of the top ranked teams in division 1 met on Thursday night when Dakota traveled to Clarkston to take on the defending state champions in the opener for both teams. Clarkston jumped out to a 17-0 halftime lead that paved they way for a 24-21 victory.
Dakota put together an impressive opening drive, moving the ball to inside the Wolves 10 yard line. The drive stalled and the Cougars came away with no points after a missed 25 yard field goal attempt.
Led by their returning starter at QB, DJ Zezula, the Wolves drove down the field for a score on their opening drive. The key play was a 3rd and 7 where the Wolves ran a vertical, dig, arrow combination to the trips side of the formation.
