Kent City Blanks Tri-County in season finale

Last season, in week nine, the Kent City Eagles lost to the Tri-County Vikings 35-7. Since that point, the two teams have headed in opposite directions as the Eagles entered Friday night at 6-2, while Tri-County was 3-5. The trends continued again Friday night, as Kent City handily defeated the Vikings 49-0. Just under two and a half minutes into the game, the Kent City defense put the team on the board as they recorded a safety to put the Eagles up 2-0. The offensive enslaught throughout the first quarter by the Eagles made it 22-0 after just twelve minutes of game play. While the second quarter was slightly better, the Viking defense still gave up a pair of touchdowns, enabling the running clock for the entirety of the second half. Kent City’s Bronson Matthew led both schools offensively as he scored three rushing touchdowns, on runs of six, fourteen and thirty yards out. With the win, Kent City now sits at 7-2 on the year, and they will be playing next week in the state playoffs. For Tri-County, their seniors have played their last game, and a new era of Viking is ready to be ushered in next fall.

Freeland Completes Undefeated Season

Photo courtesy of Bob Herline   Entering the final week of the season, the Frankenmuth Eagles and Freeland Falcons entered 8-0, both champions of their respective divisions of the Tri-Valley Conference. Both teams prided themselves on defense throughout the year, and tonight’s effort was no different. The Freeland Falcons won the game 7-3, with a first quarter touchdown being the game-winner. The usually potent Freeland offense was contained to this score, and little more. The Falcon defense played one of their best efforts of the season, holding a Frankenmuth offense that averaged 37.6 points per game through the first...
