Coopersville Opens Season With Win Over Fruitport

Saturday afternoon in part of the GRidiron Classic at Lubbers Stadium on the campus of Grand Valley State University, the Coopersville Broncos opened their season against the Trojans of Fruitport. In a 36-13 Bronco victory, they took advantage of key mistakes by Fruitport, capitalizing for points each time. After Fruitport scored at the end of the first quarter to take a 7-0 lead, Coopersville responded with 28 unanswered points to take complete control of the game. The first Coopersville touchdown was the result of short field position as Tony Nikodemski recovered an errant punt snap on the three yard line before Riley Johnson found Jake Domanski on a two yard pass. Fruitport turned the ball over three times and Coopersville scored on all three short fields. Quarterback Riley Johnson accounted for all five touchdowns, passing to Jake Domanski, Cayden Schneider, Brendan Wright (twice) and Connor Hilton for scores. He finished the game with 286 yards on 22/32 passing. In the losing effort, Fruitport tailback Levi Six had 129 yards and two touchdowns on the game, despite consistently struggling with cramps in the second half. Coopersville (1-0) will travel to Hamilton (1-0) next week in a chance to improve their record to 2-0 for the second year in a row. Fruitport (0-1) will host Spring Lake in their annual rivalry game between teams trying to bounce back after a week one loss....
