Timberland fans can color Black Friday in a Dillon Wildcat shade this year.
With a return trip to the state championship game on the line, Timberland and Dillon squared off for the seventh time, and for the sixth time the Wildcats came out on top downing the Wolves 48-13 in the Class AA, Div. I Lower State finals.
A year ago, Timberland beat Dillon for the first time ever 18-16 on the way to winning the state championship.
This year it was simply too much Dillon as the Wildcats (12-1) ran off 48 unanswered points to advance to the Class AA Div. II championship game. Timberland finishes the year at 11-2.
The Wolves looked like they were destined to make it two wins in a row in the game’s early going, mounting a 51-yard scoring drive on their first possession, capped by Austin McKinney’s 12-yard run for a touchdown.
But it would be the fourth quarter and 48 points later before Timberland would find the end zone again when McKinney scored again on an 80-yard touchdown pass from Matt Gabel.
