The Dike-New Hartford Wolverines have been unstoppable to start the season, tearing through their opponents by a combined total of 168-7.
But the Nashua-Plainfield Huskies won their district opener last week, and they would not be intimidated by the Wolverines who hadn't allowed a single point in 15 straight quarters.
But the Huskies put an end to that streak in a hurry; just three plays into the game, Husky Senior Ryan Siefken ran 47 yards for a touchdown to give N-P a 7-0 lead, less than a minute into the game.
But the Wolverines didn't buckle under the pressure. Star running back Terry Mooty ran in a 35 yard touchdown to knot the game at 7-7.
Later in the first, Mooty again took it to the house, this time from 59 yards out to give D-NH a 14-7 lead. And Mooty was on the way to a huge game against the Huskies.
But Nashua Plainfield had an answer. QB Hunter Mueller connected with Taylor Laube for a 30 yard touchdown pass. But a missed extra point left D-NH with a 14-13 lead.
In the second quarter, Wolverine QB Bryon Fritch, who was filling in for the injured Carson Parker went with a screen pass to Marcus Luna, who broke away for the touchdown, giving the Wolverines a 21-13 lead.
Late in the half, Fritch used a deep touchdown pass to Wyatt Syhlman to put Dike-New Hartford in the lead 28-13 at halftime.
The Wolverines finished off the Huskies by a final of 42-19, while Mooty had a career night, rushing for 284 yards and four touchdowns.
