The Korah Colts moved to 4-0 in senior high school football on Friday.

The Colts picked up a forfeit win over the White Pines Wolverines in senior football after the Wolverines elected not to play the game.

It marks the second consecutive week that the Wolverines did not take the field.

Last Friday, the Wolverines forfeited a game against St. Mary’s due to injuries combined with already low player numbers.

As of Thursday night, the Wolverines were hopeful that they would be able to play against Korah but that changed Friday, leading to the decision not to play.

The Wolverines fall to 0-4.

The team plans to hold practices early next week and a meeting of athletic directors is on tap for Wednesday and the fate of the Wolverines will be determined at the point.

Thursday’s game in senior football saw St. Mary’s move to 3-1 with a 17-3 win over Superior Heights.

Nick Pagnotta had a pair of touchdowns for St. Mary’s.

The Steelhawks dropped to 1-3 with the loss.

With Korah at 4-0 and St. Mary’s at 3-1, it sets the stage for a key matchup next Friday when the Colts and Knights meet. The two teams last met in week two with the Colts improving to 2-0 at the time with a 35-28 win5.

Tyler Brechin made a key play defensively in the contest on a day when he had four tackles and two interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown. Brechin also caught four passes for 66 yards for Korah in the week two win.
