Woodstock vs Sequoyah: County bragging rights on the line as Wolverines battle Chiefs

Scouting the Wolverines

The Woodstock Wolverines are coming off the bye week last week and hope to close their season out with a win. The Wolverines have made important strides this season as they look to close out the season on a high note. Woodstock’s offense sputtered a little the last time out, but some of that might be chalked up to the short week, as they played on a Thursday in that contest. Quarterback Peyton Lynch has thrown for 1,540 yards and 8-TDs. Chase Colina and Luke Renninger continue to be productive receivers for the offense as they’ve combined to catch 80 passes for 989 yards and 7-TDs. Isaiah Peyton leads the Woodstock ground attack, but Sherrod Ely and Evan Stacey have also been contributors in the Wolverine backfield. Defensively, Cooper Price (74 total tackles), Drew Burmeister (73 total tackles, 3 sacks) and Brady Sommerville (57 total tackles, 5 sacks) are the statistical leaders.

Scouting the Chiefs

The Sequoyah Chiefs have already secured a first round home playoff game and are looking to stay perfect against county opposition for the second straight year. The Chiefs, who have historically been a run first team, have found some success through the air in their last two games. Sophomore quarterback Kolby Martin threw for a season high 305 yards and 4-TDs in the victory last week. Martin has now thrown for 1,252 yards and 12-TDs while completing 63.9% of his passes. Jackson Hancock has caught 33 passes for 405 yards and 2-TDs, while Bretton Darling has come on as of late as a receiver catching 11 passes for 174 yards and a touchdown. Darling is also the team’s leaders in tackles with 65, while linebacker Taiwo Ogundele has recorded 59 total tackles. The Chiefs defense has recorded 23 sacks on the year with Matthew Matz leading the way with 7.

Pundit's Pick

While Woodstock cannot qualify for the postseason, a win would still go a long way for the Wolverines heading into the offseason. Meanwhile, the Chiefs probably want to get out of this game injury free. Sequoyah is on the road, but the Chiefs are riding high. Expect Woodstock to score some points this week, but we like Sequoyah by three touchdowns.
