Published 10:00 pm Friday, April 14, 2017

A rare full roster and an Avery County team that has struggled this season offered Polk County a welcome easy night Wednesday.

In the midst of a stretch of three games in three days, the Wolverines easily won the second of the trio, cruising to a 6-0 win over the Vikings in a Western Highlands Conference match in G.M. Tennant Stadium.

With no junior varsity contest slated, Polk County head coach Lennox Charles added his JV players to the Wolverine bench. All saw action as Polk focused much of its attention on honing its passing game and getting everyone on the field.
