Negaunee makes key plays late to top Calumet for district title

11/14/2020 | Football | By Bryce Derouin |

After three straight postseason losses to Calumet, three years of heartbreak, the Miners were forced to ponder “What if?” scenarios and replay certain plays through their minds for an entire offseason until next fall.

Calumet's Dryden Nelson outrushed Menominee by himself. He had plenty of help scoring though, as he was never the one to get in the end zone in Friday night's 29-14 Division 6 district semifinal win by the Copper Kings.

Negaunee advances with dominant win over Westwood

11/7/2020 | Football | By Eden Laase |

Negaunee and Westwood always square off during the regular season. The two schools are in the same conference, and they are only seven miles away from each other, so there isn’t much that can stop them from playing. Of course, something did this season, I don’t even have to say it, you already know what I’m talking about: that damn...
