The Green River High School football team brushed themselves off following a defeat from the Evanston Red Devils and scored a commanding 26-7 victory in Powell Friday night.

Green River dominated the much of the game, but had some difficulties scoring off of their possessions. The Wolves led the game 7-0 at the half, but had its defensive line completely shut down Powell's running game. Powell's offensive line struggled with snapping the ball, forcing them into making several offensive errors.

This issue, along with a strong defensive game from the Wolves, resulted in a safety scored by the Wolves in the second half of the game.

Returning for the Wolves was running back Kyle Ivie, who was sidelined the week prior due to a concussion. Ivie was instrumental in helping the Wolves secure their Friday night victory, as were quarterback Chance Hofer's other frequent targets, Candon Croft, Anthony Johnson, Cole White and Devin Love. Croft scored two touchdowns through the night, one following a successful pass from Hofer, while the other was off of a handoff from the quarterback.

Love also found the endzone for the Wolves, completing a 63-yard pass play in the fourth quarter. Kicker Erik Gwaltney, aside from successful PATs, made a field goal in the fourth quarter after a touchdown attempt made by Hofer was unsuccessful after an "aiding in the endzone" penalty call from the officials nullified the score.

The Wolves will hit the road again for a showdown with the Jackson Broncs Friday night.

Following that game, the team will return to Green River for their last regular season game against Star Valley.
