Week Three is finished, and what a week it was!Â In many places, the rain forced teams into a different style of football than they normally play.Â For those who saw my smack talk in my preview column and on the Phalanx Forum, I hope you saw the posts in which I ate crow.Â Iâ€™m a MSU fan 364 days of the year.Â I just have to root for my alma mater, Central Michigan.Â With that part out of the way, letâ€™s get back to the real reason that Iâ€™m writing, high school football results!
Stevensville Lakeshore 21 Portage Northern 14 (2OT)
It was a muddy night with two lightning delays.Â Then, they were having so much fun that it went to overtime.Â But that wasnâ€™t enough!Â They went into a second overtime!Â During that second overtime, Zach Ellis ran five yards for a score and the Lancers held Portage Northern out of the end zone to preserve the win.Â Ellis finished with nine carries for 26 yards and two scores.Â Quarterback Johnny Nate ran 11 times for 17 more yards and a score.Â He also completed 12 of his 26 passes for 202 yards.Â Harold Wiggins hauled in six of them for 76 yards.Â Mitch Bancroft came though on defense with two interceptions.Â For Portage Northern, quarterback Jon Pincus completed six of his 17 passes for 73 yards and ran five times for another seven yards.Â Sergio Jackson toted the rock 15 times for 84 yards and a score.Â Tyler Cummings ran 14 times for 30 while Preston Simon ran 13 times for 39 yards and a score.Â Nick Keizer was the leading receiver with two catches for 33 yards.Â One of the things that Stevensville needs to clean up is the penalties.Â They were flagged for 95 yards, three of which were 15 yard personal fouls.
Muskegon 21 Rockford 9
Coach Ralph Munger was excited to get his starting quarterback Kyle Short back into action.Â That came crashing down in the second quarter when he was forced out of the game.Â He had only completed three of his 12 passes for 59 yards at that point.Â It was Muskegon who ran the ball effectively, taking a 400-21 advantage in rushing yards.Â In the winning effort, quarterback Jalen Smith completed three of his six passes for 30 yards.Â John King ran the ball 17 times for 160 yards and a touchdown.Â Eâ€™monte Briggs ran five times for 55 yards and a score.Â Marcus Smith toted the rock six times for 86 yards.Â On the Rockford side, Austin McKellar ran nine times for 31 yards.Â Nick Simms caught four balls for 100 yards.Â The three quarterbacks that Rockford used went nine for 24 for 171 yards which is not exactly a good day for the Rams.
Frankenmuth 12 Millington 8
This is another game that was delayed by thunderstorms.Â It was CLOSE for whole game.Â Millington took a 6-0 lead in the first quarter, and got a safety with about 2:30 left in the game when a bad snap forced Frankenmuth to kick the ball out of the back of the end zone.Â They did an onside kick and recovered the ball.Â Shortly thereafter, they were able to punch it in, and combined with their second quarter touchdown, they took their first lead.Â Muth quarterback Chris List completed four of his 11 passes for 57 yards, but he was outdone by Blaine Malochleb who completed his only pass for 58 yards.Â List also ran 11 times for 21 points and a score.Â Malochleb ran 13 times for 58 yards and a score.Â Joel Warnemuende caught two passes for 85 yards.Â For Millington, quarterback Dakota Sebert completed two of his nine pass attempts for 37 yards.Â Both of them went to Chase Maxon.Â Maxon also ran the ball four times for 21 yards.Â Sebert led the rushing attack with 17 runs which gained his team 74 yards.Â Jordan Hudson scored the teamâ€™s only touchdown and gained 34 yards on 14 rushing attempts.Â This was Frankenmuthâ€™s first win over rival Millington in four years.
Marquette 7 Sault Ste. Marie 0
Yet another game with a lightning delay proves what the weather was like last Friday in the state of Michigan.Â The star of the game was Marquetteâ€™s Alex Sherbinow.Â He rushed 30 times for 156 yards and the lone score.Â The Redmen gave the Soo three chances in the red zone, but each time they came up empty.Â Marquette only attempted three passes, but completed all of them for 16 yards.Â For the Soo, Austin Brown gained 28 yards on 12 carries.Â Kyle Root ran nine times for 25 yards.Â Quarterback Michael James completed two of his five passes for 34 yards while Ben Formolo completed only one of his seven attempts for 31 yards.
