Junior quarterback Zak Willson connected on 10 of his 15 passes for 248 yards and three touchdowns. He also scored on a 21-yard rush.

Running back Anthony Grady amassed 182 yards and four touchdowns on 18 rushes and had a 57-yard touchdown catch.

Trevor Sutton and Josh Seals contributed touchdown receptions covering 74 and 15 yards, respectively. Brock Felt added a 21-yard TD run.

The Timberwolves are now 2-0 going into their home opener next week against Golden Valley. Grace Davis fell to 1-1.

Junior wide receiver Blake Mount was on the receiving end of four touchdown passes from Kirk Simoni in East Union’s bounce-back performance in Hayward.

Mount also caught a 2-point conversion, and Carson Sanders chipped in another 2-pointer on a run play.

While the passing game continued to shine, the defense had a big turnaround from last week’s 53-26 loss at Armijo of Fairfield.

“We did much better defensively reading our keys, doing our jobs and trusting each other on the field this week,” East Union coach Mike Kuhnlenz said.
