The Northstar Wolves rookie head coach Joel Charron was quick to deflect any credit thrown his way after his team shutout Brennan 19-0 to give him his first win. "Feels good man. All credit to these kids. We've only been practicing for two and a half weeks. They had to learn a whole new offence. They put in this work. They really busted some butt today.
The victory was significant for a school that almost didn't field a team this season. For Charron it's the most focused he's ever been on a sideline. "It was hard. Gotta stay focused. I think that's the first game I've ever coached where, my ten years, I was focused from beginning to end. It's a lot but it's fun. Luckily I have a lot of good coaches in my circle that I rely on and I get to ask for advice."
Charron was pumped up and his passion was on full display during his post game talk.
Sawyer Krokos scored both touchdowns for North Star. Kyle Jones put the boot on a couple of long punts for singles while Steve Craner hit a 22-yard field goal. Ashton Fevreau scored two touchdowns that were called back and seemed to be in the thick of many defensive plays. "It felt great man. Last season we went off really weak. New head coach. It's just a grateful day to come out here and beat the Cards 19-0. It's just a pleasure to be on this team."
North Star is back at Holy Names October 12th when they take on St. Joe's.
Brennan drops to 0-2 and face the Lasers Friday October 6th at Sandwich.
