Big plays ignite LL-H over BR-H, 42-0

10/19/2019 | Football | By Bryce Derouin |

No team may have been in a more state of flux before Week 1 than Lake Linden-Hubbell. When Carter Crouch went down with a torn ACL, the Lakes presumably lost its three-year starting QB, two-way starter and natural leader before even taking an official snap.

No. 2 Calumet uses run game to defeat Hancock

10/19/2019 | Football | By Eden Laase |

Calumet’s blockers held their ground and parted the Hancock defenders, leaving a hole so wide it was like the football field version of the Grand Canyon. The only tourist was Dryden Nelson, who sauntered through the gap without so much as an entrance fee. He cut up the field and into the end zone for a 15-yard touchdown run. “I...

No. 1 Iron Mountain runs past L'Anse 51-6

10/19/2019 | Football | By Bryce Derouin |

Caleb Evosevich-Hynes took the counter handoff on a sprint before gaining the right edge and turning upfield.

But this is where the fastest athletes separate themselves from the “fast.” Just when...

Marquette's 28-21 win over Menominee on Friday was enough for the Redmen to jump up to the No. 3 spot in the latest Upper Peninsula Sportswriters and Sportscasters Association poll. The Redmen (3-4) control the GNC race with a 2-0 record and have games remaining at Gladstone (3-4, 0-2) this week before hosting Kingsford (4-3, 1-1) to close the regular...

Escanaba dominates Gladstone in rivalry showdown, 35-0

10/12/2019 | Football | By Bryce Derouin |

This was Escanaba as a juggernaut. A team befitting of the No. 1 ranking putting on a performance that makes you wonder how deep in November this group of Eskymos can go. Even coaches, ever the constructive critics, readily told the team this was its best performance of the season before reminding them, “they’re not done yet.” The Eskymos’ 35-0...
