It's homecoming week and the Wolves need a win.

Shawnee (0-3) will host the Sand Springs Sandites (1-2) today with the hopes of securing the seeminlgy elusive first victory of the 2018 campaign.

The lone bright spot for the Wolves in the 47-7 loss at Carl Albert was a 35-yard touchdown from Heath Hunter to Scout Cawvey.

In the previous two games, Shawnee has been outscored 89-14.

The Sandites are 1-0 versus schools in Oklahoma with a 45-24 victory over Putnam City. They're 0-2 against teams from Arkansas and Texas.

Shawnee's starting quarterback Heath Hunter is the area's second leading passer with 458 yards and four touchdowns. He's struggled as of late with three interceptions in the last two games, but a lot of that can be credited to the offensive line struggling to protect their signal caller.

Trenton Skinner and Scout Cawvey rank third and ninth in the area in terms of receiving yards. Skinner has 234 yards and two scores, while Cawvey has upped his production each week and has 153 yards and a touchdown.

If Shawnee is to win this week, they will need to protect the quarterback and the defense, that gave up five rushing touchdowns last week, needs to step up and keep the opposition out of the end zone.

Kickoff for the homecoming game will be 7:30 p.m. at Jim Thorpe Stadium.
