Wolves draw blood in 66-36 loss to Service



Published:

Eagle River hung with the conference’s best team for much of the first half of a wild 66-36 Service win at Chugiak’s Tom Huffer Sr. Stadium Friday night.
The Wolves (1-6 overall, 1-5 Cook Inlet Conference) trailed the undefeated Cougars just 21-12 after the first quarter thanks to a 50-yard Josh Vanderlooven kickoff return and 55-yard run by Ed Hall.
The Wolves cut the lead to 21-15 on a Jordan Oberlander field goal, but the Cougars (6-0-1 overall, 6-0 CIC) proved too powerful for the Wolves down the stretch as quarterback Amu Aukisitino threw for 355 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another score.
Kelechi Madubuko caught two touchdown passes from Peter Kott for Eagle River, which also got a 90-yard kickoff return from Malcolm Bell.
Eagle River finishes the season at 2 p.m. Saturday at Huffer Stadium against South.
