Another game, another big win for the Tualatin High School football team.
And the Timberwolves got a lot of people involved in their latest victory.
Tualatin, on Friday, rolled to a 52-27 win over McNary in a non-league game played Friday at McNary High School in Keizer.

With the win, Tualatin improved to 3-0 on the season. McNary moved to 0-3 on the season with the setback.
