Wakefield wins big, keeps playoff hopes alive

Must Read

By scoring early and often, the Wakefield Warriors cruised to a lopsided home victory the night of March 26 in high-school football action.

Wakefield (3-1, 2-1) led 27-0 at halftime en route to defeating the Justice Wolves, 33-6, in a National District clash. 

With the win, Wakefield kept its slim 6D North Region playoff hopes alive.

Wakefield scored on its opening possession when Jack McAvoy threw 15 yards to Lukai Hatcher for a TD and Zach Jankovich booted the first of three extra points.


Wakefield’s next three touchdowns came on fumble recoveries in the end zone by Michael Guruli and Rhys Carlson and a fumble return of 27 yards by Guruli.

The Warriors’ final TD was a three-yard run by Dontae Clark, who rushed for 83 yards on 21 carries. Jordan Bussie had 38 yards rushing and Guruli 13.

McAvoy was 6 of 7 passing for 76 yards and Clark completed a 30-yard halfback option pass.

Hatcher had five catches for 85 yards and Izaiah Lang and Seth Novak had one catch each.
