Injuries took their toll for the Wiggins Tigers this season, and the team was never really able to recover. The Wiggins Tigers played their last season game against Cornerstone Christian in Thornton on Saturday, October 26, 2013. Wiggins went into the game with a record of 4-3, and Cornerstone went into the game with a record of 5-3. At half time the score was 21-7, Cornerstone in the lead. The game ended with a loss for the Tigers, 46-13.
During the first half, Terran Freauff threw one touchdown pass to Cade Carlson. During the second half, Austin Dinis rushed 9 yards for a touchdown. Also in the second half, Corey Ritchey sacked the quarterback for a loss of 3 yards.
“I think the game didn’t go like we wanted it to. Things didn’t go our way and we didn’t play to the level that we wanted to,” said senior Armando Munoz. “It’s really sad to know that I will never strap up my football pads and play with my brothers again. We had a good run.”
Eleven senior football players stepped out onto the field for the last time in their high school career. These players were Armando Munoz, Kolvyn Baessler, Skyler Collins, Mario Saldana, Terran Freauff, Rocky Blake, Corey Ritchey, Tyson Thompson, Steven Leon, Dalton Risner, and Cade Carlson.
“It’s been a privilege to have coached them for three years,” said assistant coach Matt Sees about the seniors. “They are a class that has a winning tradition, and they work their butts off all the time in order to maintain that tradition. They are a great group of young men… I’m going to miss them.”
