The Falcons, who entered this contest a surprising 2-0 with wins against Macomb L’Anse Cruse North and Orchard Lake St Mary’s, faced a Hudsonville team that has struggled to score the ball so far this season.

Hunter Spence scored the first touchdown for Comstock Park on an eleven yard run, and this turned the tide of the game.
