PEACHTREE CORNERS — Wesleyan’s defense was impressive Friday night in a 24-0 win over Mount de Sales in a matchup of top-10 Class A Private football teams.
The Wolves improved to 2-0 thanks in large part to its defensive effort.
“It was a complete win for us over a really good opponent,” Wesleyan head coach Franklin Pridgen said.
Cooper Blauser had another big game offensively for Wesleyan with five catches for 73 yards and a touchdown. He also had a TD run and an interception on defense.
Griffin Caldwell rushed 12 times for 55 yards and a score, and Vance Nicklaus had three catches for 59 yards.
Mount de Sales couldn’t muster anything against Wesleyan and its defensive front of Michael Soukup, Jackson Turner and Tanner Bivins.
“Great job by our defensive line,” Pridgen said.
Wyatt Hodges (10 tackles), J.D. Chipman (10 tackles), James Tremble (nine tackles) and Nicklaus (four tackles) also were among the defensive standouts.
Wesleyan also got important contributions from Brooks Sturgeon, who made a 36-yard field goal and averaged 45 yards on his punts.
