Amateur football: Broncos pound Wolfpack in season opener

DULUTH — The West Central Broncos started their season with a bang, hammering the Great Lakes Wolfpack 53-7 on Saturday at Denfield High School in Duluth.

Cameron Halvorson scored three rushing touchdowns, and Jerimiah Harris paced the Broncos with 90 yards on the ground and one TD.

Brandon King and Jarrett McAllister also rushed for scores, and Keante Johnson caught the lone TD pass from quarterback King.

The Broncos also scored on a fumble recovery ran in by Rene Vallejo.

“We forced four turnovers, rushed for over 350 yards and scored seven touchdowns,” Broncos’ head coach Willie Holmes said. “All that is great, but what means the most to me is giving young men the chance to play football and help guide them through football, to become good men both on and off the field.”
