Photo courtesy of Bob Herline   The Freeland Falcons for the second consecutive year have been crowned the Tri Valley Conference-Central Champions. Also for the second straight season, the Falcons earned the championship title without losing a league game, extending their league winning streak to sixteen games. Tonight’s blowout 53-0 victory over Midland Bullock Creek was very similar to the other six wins, a lot of running and a stout defense. Freeland’s defense pitched their first shutout of the season, but they have been phenomenal throughout the entirety of the regular season to date. The Falcon defense has allowed...

Hudsonville’s Seniors Rush for Five Touchdowns in Win Over Grand Haven

On Senior Night in Grand Haven, the Buccaneers hosted the 6-1 Hudsonville Eagles. Much like every opponent that the Eagles have faced, with exception to Grandville, the Eagles took care of business in relatively routine fashion, dominating the Buccaneers 34-7. The Eagles used a strong ground attack, as they rushed for all five of their scores. Senior tailback Dalton Agers played strong yet again as he accounted for three touchdowns on the ground, on runs of one, six and forty-seven yards. Accompanying this strong effort was senior quarterback Jack Mandryk, who added a pair of rushing touchdowns from thirty and forty-two yards. Though the final score showed this game to be far out of hand, it was only 14-7 Hudsonville at the half. The Eagles played a sloppy first half in which they had two of their five drives end in fumbles. After they left the locker room at the half, Hudsonville played nearly flawless in the second half as they scored on their three complete drives of the half (they ran the clock out on their fourth drive). With the win, the Eagles improve to 7-1 on the season, and will have a chance to earn a share of the OK Red Conference title with a win at home against Rockford next Friday. The Rams currently lead the conference by one game, but with a win Hudsonville will earn a share of the title, which could also be...

Tri-County Blanks Fremont on Senior Night

Tonight, the Vikings of Tri-County hosted Fremont in a battle of two teams that are playing purely for pride in CSAA-Gold play. The Packers of Fremont have struggled this season, and they entered tonight with a 0-7 record, while Tri-County entered the game at 2-5. Tri-County played very strong tonight as they shutout the Packers 29-0. In the first quarter, Tri-County opened the scoring with a 35 yard field goal on the leg of senior Lucas Prater. In the second quarter, a glimmer of youth and hope for Viking Nation was shown as sophomore Tanner Ching scored from a yard out to give the Vikings a 10-0 lead at the break. The second half was more of a strong effort by the Viking defense as they held Fremont without a point, recording the first shutout since September 25, 2009 when Tri-County shutout Newaygo 35-0. The offense was boosted by a pair of touchdowns by senior Eli Longcore, playing in his final home game tonight. It was a valiant Senior Day effort for the Vikings as they snapped a four game losing streak, and gave the home crowd a victory to celebrate headed into the offseason. Tri-County wraps up its 2016 campaign next Friday when it travels to Kent City, and a win would increase their win total from a season ago. Last fall, Tri-County defeated Kent City 35-7, but they...
