The Wolves football team then played in the final game on November 17 against Don Bosco, Gilbertville. During this game, Bryce completed 23 out of 42 passes for 258 yards. Trevor had 66 yards on 11 rush attempts, and he also had a touchdown. Jordan had 8 receptions for 128 yards and a touchdown.

Braeton Nitzschke was the lead tackler with 11 total, Keegan and Trevor both had 9.5 tackles, and Bret had 9.

Sadly, the Wolves lost to Don Bosco, 21-48. However, they are still second in state, which is a huge accomplishment. Five Wolves players made it onto the All State 8-player teams. Jordan Kyle made it onto the 1st team as a defensive lineman. Trevor Gunderson also made it onto the 1st team as an offensive back. The players who made it onto the 2nd team were Keegan Carpenter (defensive linebacker), Braeton Nitzschke (offensive lineman), and Dalton Nicks (kicker). The Wolves finished their historical season with a 12-1 record.
