The Remus Chippewa Hills Warriors, who entered the season with six straight playoff appearances, took another strong step in reaching their seventh straight postseason with a 42-20 win over Tri-County. This game was one of those that was never quite out of hand, but never quite a competitive ball game. It was fourteen points at halftime, but that was as close as they would get.
Chippewa Hills had strong play from a handful of players, including quarterback Cade Schafer, who only completed five passes but recorded 100 yards through the air. He also added 23 yards on the ground on four carries. David Spedowski put together a strong effort running the ball, as he tallied up 105 yards on 18 carries to lead the way for the Warriors. This was over half of the 206 total rushing yards that Chippewa Hills was able to gain tonight.
For Tri-County, they only managed 198 total yards of offense, and 183 of those came on the ground. The leading rusher was Mathieu Flintoff, who tallied up 59 yards on seven carries. Bryce Hallam also carried the ball seven times for 40 yards.
Next week, Tri-County will attempt to reach the win column when they take on Reed City. Make sure to tune in on Tuesday night as Dave Princer and Maisy Nielsen host the Tri-County Coaches show LIVE on MSR. Those two will also be on the call Friday night against the Coyotes.
