Wolverine JVs fall to Cavaliers

East Rutherford’s mix of varsity and junior varsity players proved too much Thursday for Polk County’s junior varsity to overcome, the Wolverines dropping a 46-6 decision to the Cavaliers in G.M. Tennant Stadium.

East Rutherford isn’t playing a varsity schedule this season. Some of its returning varsity players transferred to other Rutherford County schools while the rest are part of the team playing a JV-only schedule this season.

The Cavaliers (5-4) scored twice in the first quarter, then added three more scores in the second period to take a 40-0 lead at halftime. East upped the advantage to 46-0 midway through the third period.

Polk County (0-5) kept fighting throughout the game, and the Wolverines’ effort was rewarded in the fourth quarter as Dayvion Stinson tossed a 52-yard touchdown pass to Bryson Jones on a halfback option play.

The Wolverines are set to conclude their schedule next Thursday, hosting Brevard for a 7 p.m. kickoff. That game will also air on NFHS Network.
