FOOTBALL | New squad starts their season with a disappointing loss at home

The team was unable to put concerns of past season defeats to rest in the first game of the year.

 The first football game of the year took place on Aug. 27, 2021 at home. Van Nuys High School lost to Taft with an end result of 43 – 6. 

The play of the game was a punt return for a touchdown from the wolves midway in the first quarter which tied the game up at the time 6 – 6.

Sadly throughout the game, the defense could not stop the plays which allowed Taft to score on every drive. While the defense couldn’t stop anything the offense wasn’t doing any better. They were unable to get in a smooth rhythm and allowed the quarterback to get pressured on practically every play.

Hopes remain high for the wolfpack to finally get their first win.
