Freeland Grinds Out Marquee Conference Win over Alma

Photo Courtesy of Bob Herline Friday night in Freeland, first place was on the line in the Tri-Valley Central as the Freeland Falcons took on the Panthers of Alma. The Falcons, ranked tenth in our Remax-United Power Poll and ninth in Division 5, hosted Alma, who was ranked #4 in Division 4. In a low-scoring game, each possession was key, and a big stop by the Freeland defense led the charge in a 12-6 win. Freeland struck first as Gahret Metina found the end zone on a six yard run. After a failed extra point, the Falcons led 6-0. Alma...

Freeland Blows Out Carrollton

For Freeland football, blowout conference wins are becoming a habit. The Falcons took on Carrollton on Friday night, a team that had given up just six points in their first two games. Freeland exploited their defense en route to their third straight blowout victory, a 56-19 win. After Carrollton scored in the first quarter to tie the game at seven, the Falcons responded with thirty-five unanswered points to blow the game wide open. Running back Jacob Kelsey found the end zone twice in the win, leading the team in touchdowns. The Falcons have shown a balanced running attack all year as they have had a different back lead them in rushing in each game so far. Week one leader Gahret Metiva scored once, as did Max Kubiak, Chris Bell, Tyler Shea and Zachary Townsend. The Falcons appear to be strong favorites to win the Tri-Valley Central yet again this fall, and they will take the next step towards that next week when they host Alma. Also, there were technical difficulties that resulted in some difficulty during the Freeland broadcast. We here at Michigan Sports Radio apologize for the inconvenience and the issue should be resolved for next Friday’s contest. SCORING SUMMARY QuarterScoreScoring Play 1FREE 7-0J.Kelsey 2yd run.

Jo Jo Whitley’s Four Rushing Touchdowns Lead Panthers Past Coopersville

Comstock Park and the Coopersville Broncos faced off Friday night in the OK Blue Conference openers for both teams. Coopersville, who had not scored in four straight games against the Panthers, scored first when Riley Johnson hit Nate Lemieux on a 13 yard slant pass into the end zone.  They then went for the 2 point conversion and didn’t convert. The Broncos kicked off to the Panthers which they took to their own 45 yard line.  The first play from scrimmage saw Jo Jo Whitley explode off of the Right tackle and streak down the sideline for a 55 yard score.  The PAT by Nate Hughes was good, making the score 7-6. A big play in the contest took place when Coopersville fumbled at the 3 yard line as they were about to score and it was recovered by Comstock Park in the end zone for a touchback.  This score would of put the Broncos out front. Comstock Park took advantage of this turnover and scored 5 seconds into the 2nd quarter on Jo Jo Whitley’s second touchdown run, this one from nine yards. Nate Hughes missed the PAT, as Coopersville’s Jake Domanski was able to break through the line and block the kick, making the score 13-6. The Broncos responded with a big play on a quick screen pass to Cayden Schneider from Riley Johnson.  Cayden then scampered for 64 yards down the near sideline for the...

Zeeland West Controls Time of Possession and Game in Battle of State Champs

Photo courtesy of Laurie Timmer   This week, in perhaps the most anticipated non-conference matchup of the regular season, defending Division 4 State Champion Zeeland West, winners of sixteen in a row, hosted the defending Division 5 State Champion West Catholic Falcons, winners of thirteen straight contests. These two offenses, primarily run oriented and high scoring, proposed an entertaining high scoring affair on paper, and for the Dux, they did not disappoint. Zeeland West controlled the line of scrimmage and time of possession, scoring thirty eight points in a convincing sixteen point win. The Dux had four different players...
