Bayfield High School improved to 4-0 with a 22-6 football victory at Cedaredge on Friday night in a game that was delayed nearly 90 minutes by heavy rain and lighting.
The game ended after 11 p.m.
The score was 0-0 at halftime as the teams battled the slick, sloppy field conditions.
The Wolverines finally got on the board in the third quarter on a touchdown pass from Ryan Terry to Danny Calderwood, the first of three TD passes for Terry.
The score was set up by a long completion from Terry to Brenden Harrison.
Aaron Velasquez ran across for a two-point conversion.
Velasquez scored Bayfield's next touchdown on a 9-yard swing pass. The conversion failed, and Bayfield led 14-0.
Cedaredge answered with a long run for a touchdown, cutting the lead to 14-6.
The Wolverines managed one more scoring drive. Harrison caught a 12-yard touchdown pass from Terry for the final 22-6 margin of victory.
"Cedaredge did a good job shutting down our run game," Bayfield head coach Marshall Hahn said. "They had some good speed."
He said the field conditions and a difficult week of practice (with a number of players battling sickness and injuries) produced a game that lacked rhythm and cohesiveness. The Wolverines fumbled nine times, losing six during the game.
"But I told the kids, a team is marked by how they respond to adversity. And somehow, we found a way to scratch out a win.
"It was a long trip, and a lot of our kids are sick right now," Hahn said.
"It was just goofy all night long."
The long weather delay came just 7 minutes into the opening quarter.
Cedaredge slipped to 1-2 with the Friday-night loss.
Bayfield will host Centauri next Friday in the BHS homecoming game at Wolverine Country Stadium. The game also is the Mountain League opener for the Wolverines.
