The Wolf Point football team tuned up for the regular season with the maroon and white scrimmage on Thursday, Aug. 25.
â€śI was pleased with the overall effort and how they came out to play,â€ť Wolf Point coach Anthony Red Cloud said after the scrimmage.
He noted there were many good plays both offensively and defensively.
