LONE TREE — The Winfield-Mt. Union football team dug its self in too deep of a hole on Friday night, falling at Lone Tree 62-32.

The Wolves trailed 30-8 after the first quarter, thanks to three passing touchdowns and one rushing score from Alex Viner.

The Wolves would sneak back into the game in the second quarter. Daunte Oepping threw two touchdown passes, one to Juanito Piper and one to Christian Gerot to cut the Lone Tree lead to 30-24 before halftime.

Lone Tree scored the next three touchdowns of the game and never looked back.

Oepping went 10-18 for 113 yards, three touchdowns and one interception in the loss. He also ran for a team-leading 108 yards and a score.

Jacob Ford had three catches for 42 yards and a touchdown. Gerot had five catches for 38 yards and a score, and Piper had two catches for 33 yards and a touchdown.

Piper led the defense with nine tackles. Sullivan Scott had one fumble recovery.

W-MU is now 1-5 overall and 0-4 in the district. They’ll host New London in their homecoming game this week.
