Eighth-ranked Wray football started fast and used the first-half cushion it built en route to a 40-6 win over Wiggins on Friday.

"I thought the team played well on both sides of the ball," Wray coach Levi Kramer said. "I was really proud of how physical we played."

Wray scored just three plays into the game, when Tyler Collins found Junior Arambula for a 29-yard score. Later in the first quarter, Collins hit Bryant Schoenthal to make it 12-0.

In the second, Collins had rushing scores of 53 and 57 in the second quarter, and then a 55-yard pass to Schoenthal, which made it 32-0 at halftime.

After the break, Dillion Schmidt added a four-yard touchdown for Wray, pushing the lead to 40-0.

"Our line blocked exceptionally well tonight and our receivers ran very well after the catch," Collins said. "I was most proud of how our defense played, we worked as a unit and our execution was great. It's fun to be competing again."

Cole Kerr had Wiggins' lone touchdown.

Wray moves to 2-0, and and will face Jefferson on Saturday. Wiggins will play at Holyoke on Friday.
