Renewed Bears-Wolverines rivalry produces instant classic
WEST BEND—A couple of decades ago, two of the strongest football programs in northwest Iowa were the West Bend-Mallard Wolverines and the Bishop Garrigan Golden Bears. The two squads battled each other in some entertaining and exciting battles but have not played each other for a while since the Wolverines went to eight-man football.
But the two teams reunited for the first time in many years on Friday, Sept. 10, and put on a heck of a show in front of a nice crowd as the Golden Bears scored in the final minute to earn a 34-29 district victory.
