Inching Closer To The Playoffs - Week Three Results
A third of the season has passed.Â Crunch time is upon us.Â We have seen some fantastic games and some blowouts.Â Iâ€™m not sure which is better; winning a game in a severe blowout or winning a game in the closing seconds. Either way, a win is a win.Â While reading Searn's football message board, I came across an interesting post speculating on how the divisions could break down this year.Â It has East Grand Rapids falling into Division IV which would make things very interesting in both Division III and IV
Letâ€™s get into the Week Three Results.
Flint Carman-Ainsworth 14 Flint Powers Catholic 6
Sophomore quarterback Nick Hill started the scoring by tossing a 30 yard touchdown pass to Terrence Stocker.Â Flint Powers scored in the third quarter, on a one yard quarterback keeper by Mark Metz.Â The score was 7-6 through most of the fourth quarter.Â As the game got closer and closer to completion, Carman-Ainsworth found a way to get a cushion before time ran out.Â It was Terrence Stocker who scored the game winning touchdown late in the game.Â With only 40 seconds left in the game, he took the handoff and ran eight yards into the end zone.Â Powers quarterback Metz completed eight of his 17 passes for 109 yards.
Rockford 42 Grandville 14
Ralph Mungerâ€™s Rams opened the Ottawa-Kent Conference Red Division season with a dominating win over Grandville.Â Ram quarterback Tim McGee tossed a 67 yard touchdown pass to Nick Stokes after being intercepted on their first possession.Â The first half was dominated by Rockford as they out-gained the Bulldogs 265-95.Â Ryan Cochran had two touchdowns and Aaron Kwekel had one as well all before the half.Â Jake Lombardo passed the ball decently for Grandville, but only had 69 yards through the air.Â One of the Bulldogs scores came in Rockfordâ€™s first series when Spencer Riva returned an interception 17 yards for a score.
Detroit Cass Tech 46 Detroit Crockett 6
Holding down the quarterback position for Cass Tech, Thomas Gordon played a heck of a game.Â He tossed for 130 yards and two scores.Â He also had a one yard touchdown on a quarterback sneak.Â Junior Dior Mathis caught a 47 yard touchdown pass for the Technicians.Â Uncommitted defensive tackle William Campbell had a strong game defensively for Cass Tech.
