Wolves stop late two-point try, hold off Underwood
MANNING (Aug. 31) -- Outgained by more than 300 yards Friday night, the IKM-Manning football team scored twice on special teams and found a way to hold off Underwood for a 28-26 non-district win.
Trailing 28-14 after three quarters, the Eagles scored twice in the fourth but missed an extra point with 5:13 to go and failed on their two-point conversion pass at the 1:03 mark. Underwood’s onside kick attempt went out of bounds and the Wolves were able to run out the clock and improve to 2-0.
IKM-Manning finished with just 169 total yards from scrimmage, compared to Underwood’s 495, but was bolstered by Nathan Blankman’s 53-yard punt return touchdown early in the second quarter and Amos Rasmussen’s 89-yard kickoff return TD late in the third.
Rasmussen, a freshman, scored three times in the third quarter, including a 26-yard run and a 27-yard pass from Kyler Rasmussen.
Nick Ravlin completed 17-of-30 passes for Underwood (0-2), finishing with 321 yards and four touchdowns through the air.
Stephen Grimm led the Wolves with 79 yards on 22 rushing attempts and Kyler Rasmussen completed 3-of-7 passes for 54 yards and a TD. Rasmussen also averaged 38 yards on eight punts and led IKM-Manning with 12 total tackles.
