Area Football: W-DC rallies past West Central


BARRETT — Senior quarterback Evan VanErp scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns to rally the Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines past the West Central Knights 28-16 in a non-conference game Friday.

Trailing 16-14 with 10 minutes to play, VanErp capped a 60-yard drive with a 12-yard run for the lead. Seven plays later, after an onside kick was recovered at midfield, VanErp scored again on a sweep to ice the game.
