The Todd Silfiesâ chapter of the Kane Wolvesâ football story began with a bang on Friday night as they battled to a 35-13 win over visiting Sheffield.
The Wolves jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter against the Sheffield Wolverines and saw the visitors cut the score to 14-7 midway through the third quarter.
The Kane players regrouped, however, and responded with 21 straight points before Sheffield scored a touchdown with no time on the clock to give Kane the 35-13 win.
It was like staring down the barrel of a loaded gun.

Theyâre always âright thereâ when theyâre needed even though they know there are risks.â
