i must say going off years past, with their track record of not showing up, and just my gut feeling, i would say there will be no game. i hope to be proven wrong, but i guess we will wait and see. i would think someone from their team would respond either on here or the mfl site.....but its nothing but silence

SEMI-PRO FOOTBALL: Wolverines cruise to 47-6 win at PJCS
By CATHERINE LAROCHE
LOUISVILLE — Heading into Saturday’s first Wolverine Classic, the Hardin County Wolverines were 3-0 in season-opening games.
The Wolverines weren’t about to make things any different this season as they thumped the Western Kentucky Punishers, 47-6 at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.
“I thought we had a good performance,” Wolverines’ wide receiver/quarterback Dewayne Whittfield said. “It wasn’t our best performance, but it was a solid performance.”
Early on, the Wolverines (1-0) didn’t look like an Ohio Valley Football League championship contender. They had incomplete passes, multiple penalties and struggled to move the ball on the ground.
“We started off kind of rusty,” Wolverines’ defensive back Jason Bradley said.
To add to their rough start, the Punishers intercepted Wolverines’ quarterback Kendrick Johnson and returned it 65 yards for a touchdown less than three minutes into the game, but Hardin County defensive end Chris Pyles blocked the point-after try.
“I had hurt my thumb two plays earlier and I kind of shot putted it out there,” Johnson said. “As soon as I threw it, I saw the dude coming across the middle of the field and thought, “Oh man.’”
Two possessions later, Johnson n who finished 10-of-16 passing for 221 yards n helped even the score with a 58-yard touchdown completion to Michael Skies, who had two receptions for a game-high 80-yards.
From then on, the Wolverines continued to impress the crowd of more than 1,800, which included University of Louisville football star running back Michael Bush.
After a missed field goal, the Wolverines scored on their next four possessions on a 2-yard run by former Elizabethtown star fullback Adrian “A.D.” Starks, a 32-yard pass from Johnson to ex-Panther Dee Hardin, a 1-yard run by newly acquired running back Ronnie Stoner and a 45-yard pass from Johnson to All-American wide receiver Brett Sheckles.
Up 33-6, the Wolverines tacked on two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter on Stoner’s second scoring run and a 6-yard run by former Elizabethtown running back Marquee Simpson.
Playing without its top halfback, former Elizabethtown and Western Kentucky player Tyran Robertson, and three starting linemen, the Wolverines’ backfield still outgained the Punishers, 162-95.
Former LaRue County kicker Casey Clark missed a 30-yard field-goal attempt, but rebounded by hitting his final five extra-point attempts. He averaged 54 yards on his eight kickoffs.
The Wolverines amassed 413 yards on 58 plays, while Hardin County’s defense limited the Punishers to 112 yards on 31 plays. The Wolverines’ defense came up with five turnovers as Jamar Tillman, Craig Murphy and former Elizabethtown star Chris Williams had interceptions and Shauwn Marshall and ex-Meade County player Jason Degutis recovered fumbles.
Bradley added a kickoff fumble recovery.
Winning games is not much of a surprise for the Wolverines, whose all-time winning percentage is better than .750, but winning in PJCS was more than just their usual win.
“It was a dream come true,” Bradley said. “It was a hell of an experience. I always wanted to play for Louisville or Kentucky, but that didn’t happen. It was truly a dream come true.”
UP NEXT: The Wolverines play the Nashville (Tenn.) Storm on Saturday afternoon. The game is tentatively scheduled to be played at West Hardin Middle School in Stephensburg.
