EPC halted against St. Croix Falls
PLUM CITY - An injury to starting quarterback and defensive back Levi Wolf in the second quarter brought Elmwood/Plum City's effort against St. Croix Falls to a halt and Saints went on to win 34-13, spoiling Plum City's Homecoming Friday evening.
EPC led 13-12 midway through the second quarter when Wolf injured his knee and was taken out for the rest of the non-conference contest. His loss was felt on both sides of the ball as SCF scored on a big play 67-yard run from scrimmage by Brendon McPherson to go in front 18-13 at halftime. The Wolves didn't score the rest of the ballgame while SCF racked up over 300 yards rushing led by Joe Rachermacher's 143 yards on 26 carries and McPherson's 102 yards on seven carries. Both players scored TDs in the second half.
Wolf still led the team in rushing with 153 yards on 13 carries despite playing only a quarter and a half-quarter of the ballagame. EPC's Bryce Bock finished with 53 yards on 13 carries. EPC was again plagued by turnovers as they had three interceptions. SCF improved to 2-4 overall while EPC dropped to 2-4. Elmwood's Homecoming is next Friday and EPC will be there against Lake Holcombe/Cornell.
