After years coming up short against neighboring powerhouse Auburn High, the ninth-ranked Wolverines (4-0, 3-0) finally had a roster to match the No. 8 Rockets (3-2, 1-1) and they made their best opportunity in years count in the Hometeam Game of the Week. Leicester shut down visiting Auburn on Homecoming Night courtesy of big Tom Rodrick and a gang of scrappy playmakers to claim a 15-6 victory. Shane Padeni and Roderick had touchdown runs of 45 and 32 yards for the Wolverines, and Jake Morrow was a stalwart on special teams with his 90-yard return of a blocked PAT for safety. Andrew Markvenus scored for Auburn with a 2-yard scamper.
