SPENCER – The Manawa Wolves made their way to Spencer’s Ted Fritsch Field on Friday night and quickly put a damper on the Rockets’ Senior Night festivities, putting up a three-touchdown lead with just under 15 minutes to play.
But somebody forgot to tell the Wolves that there are four quarters to each game, or in this case, a little more.
Led by Eden Jacobson’s four-touchdown performance, the Rockets pulled out an improbable double-overtime, 51-49 comeback win to improve to 2-0 in the Central Wisconsin Conference Large Division this season.
Jacobson’s game-tying touchdown in regulation came from the hand of quarterback Gage Stratman from 20 yards out with just 3 seconds on the clock, forcing the extra sessions.
