Fennville Head Coach Richard Roth stated afterwards that “It was a great game where we were simply just outexecuted. We were in the red zone four times, but three times left with a turnover. That really made the game. Not to take anything away from Northpointe, as they are a darn good football team, but we just have to execute our assignments better”.
