Eas­ton Hart­ley takes the hand­off and drives up the mid­dle in the sec­ond quar­ter as Owen Sound District Sec­ondary School beat the Saugeen Roy­als 13-0 at OSDSS on Fri­day af­ter­noon.

The Owen Sound District Wolves de­fence con­tin­ued to bare its teeth on Fri­day with a 13-0 shutout over the Saugeen Roy­als in Owen Sound.

It was the sec­ond shutout for the Wolves in as many reg­u­lar sea­son games.

The two teams played to a 15-15 draw ear­lier in the sea­son, but the Wolves de­fen­sive line fea­tur­ing stand­outs Matt Kool and Kyle Brown made sure to ground the Roy­als air at­tack on a chilly af­ter­noon.

The weather may have helped as well. The cold and some­times rainy mess lent it­self to Lu­cas Wright’s brand of ground-and-pound foot­ball.

The Wolves’ run­ning back drove his way down the foot­ball field shed­ding Roy­als tack­les en route to the game’s first score of the day.

When the Roy­als clogged up the mid­dle of the field, quar­ter­back Ethin Derry at­tacked the out­side for pos­i­tive yardage - in­clud­ing a big gain on third-and-short to keep the open­ing drive alive.

Noah Dyal con­verted for the ex­tra point to give OSDSS the 7-0 lead in the first quar­ter.

The Wolves de­fence then forced back-to-back three-and-outs from the Roy­als be­fore Saugeen blocked a field goal at­tempt to keep the score close.

The Roy­als shut down the Wolves on the goal line to force a turnover on downs af­ter Owen Sound re­cov­ered a fum­ble in the Saugeen end.

Owen Sound hit pay-dirt again be­fore the end of the half when Ethin Derry con­nected with Calvin Ste­wart at the back of the end zone. A bob­bled snap flubbed the con­ver­sion. The score 13-0 at half-time.

In the sec­ond half the Roy­als found a lit­tle suc­cess on of­fence with back-to-back con­nec­tions be­tween quar­ter­back Nick Scott and wide re­ceiver Flynn Col­well-Cas­tles.

The drive fiz­zled out when Wolves line­backer Ja­son Ru­dolph stuffed a run for a loss.

Owen Sound’s de­fence dom­i­nated the rest of the way se­cur­ing the shutout and im­prov­ing the Wolves record to 2-1-1 (W-LT). The Roy­als fall to 1-2-1 on the year.

The St. Mary’s Mus­tangs im­proved to 4-0-0 with a 35-3 win over the Grey High­lands Lions on the road this week.

Owen Sound and St. Mary’s will bat­tle at the OSDSS field on Thurs­day with kick-off sched­uled for 3 p.m.
