GREENE – Four touchdown runs by Ian Gonzalez were key in West Fork’s 30-12 win over North Butler at Greene during a rainy game that included a lightning delay.

It was coach Eric Gabe’s first district win of the season as the Warhawks improved to 2-5 overall.

Following a scoreless first quarter under a constant downpour, Gonzalez broke through the first of his four scores on a 15-yard run with 8 minutes, 5 seconds until halftime.

He ran in the two-point conversion for an 8-0 lead.
