GRAETTINGER - The Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire Titans host their first game in Graettinger tonight as rival West Bend-Mallard/Gilmore City-Bradgate comes to town.

The Wolverines are 3-1 on the season after a forfeit from Northwood-Kensett in Week 0 followed by a 28-14 win over Remsen-union, a 38-32 loss to Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn and a 52-12 victory over Northeast Hamilton.

Quarterback Jesse Zinnel leads the Wolverines' attack. He has completed 28-of-52 passes for 448 yards with five touchdowns and four interceptions.

His favorite target is twin brother Jason Zinnel, who has caught 16 passes for 228 yards and three touchdowns.

Titans' coach Todd Hough knows his team will have to stop the Zinnel twins.

Jordon Buhs leads the rushing attack. The 5-11, 180-pound junior has 349 yards and six touchdowns on 32 carries.

Jessie Zinnel has rushed 48 times for 268 yards and three touchdowns.

Meanwhile Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire has struggled in its first three games. The Titans have been outscored 127-28 this season.

"West bend-Mallard's defense has good team speed," said Hough.

What Hough is looking for again this week is a cleaner game from his squad.

"We've had too many big mistakes-those that stop drives or give up big plays," he said. "We'll keep trying to eliminate a few of those."
