  • Four-time defending Division 6 state champion Ithaca begins run for fifth straight Friday night as it hosts Bad Axe WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    Ithaca and Bad Axe are both mirror images of one another and yet also complete opposites. On the one hand, the Hatchets run the exact same offense as the Yellowjackets as their coaching staff actually came to Ithaca some time back to learn the schemes first-hand. So when the two squads meet up Friday night at 7 p.m. in a Division 6 district semif...Read More


  • Chippewa Hills football out for revenge in Pre-District matchup with Lakeview WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    A rivalry will be renewed on Friday when the Chippewa Hills football team hosts Lakeview in the Div. 5 Pre-District. The long-time Central-State Conference enemies were restructured into different leagues after last season, and though the Warriors (7-2) have dominated the series 11-3, they are itching for the chance at retribution as the Wildcats (...Read More


  • Harrison happy to be back in postseason, readies for Calumet Saturday WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    The excitement around Harrison is palpable.

On Saturday afternoon the Hornets will play host to Calumet at 1 p.m. from Dick Harris Field, ma...Read More


  • Carson City-Crystal revved up for third straight playoff appearance as it travels to Ravenna for D6 district semifinal WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    When Carson City-Crystal joined the Mid-State Activities Conference going into the 2012 season, it had a struggling football program that was coming off a 1-8 season. The Eagles to that point had not made the playoffs since 1999 and suffered through seven losing seasons in a row. But there was reason for optimism as the the pieces were in place a...Read More


  • Clare and Essexville-Garber to meet in D5 district semifinal Friday WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    Running the football opens up the passing game. Passing the football opens up the running game. So which will it be? On Friday night a pair of high-octane offenses will be meeting at the Brookwood Athletic Complex in Clare when the Pioneers host Essexville-Garber in a Division 5 district semifinal at 7 p.m. The meeting is the first-ever between...Read More


  • Fulton draws defending D8 state champs in playoff opener WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    You can look at it two ways, either as ‘not fair’ or as ‘you got to start somewhere.’ In this particular instance the psychology that better fits the situation is the latter because if you run with the former you’ll lose the game before you even step on the field. As it stands the Fulton High School football team drew the defending Division 8 sta...Read More


  • Beal City and Coleman renew rivalry in D8 district semifinal Friday WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    Coleman likes to throw the ball around the yard. Beal City prefers to run it.

Historically speaking Coleman (7-2) h...Read More

  • Stopping the run the key for Montabella as it prepares to take on undefeated Whittemore-Prescott WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    The Montabella High School football team comes into its Div. 7 pre-district playoff matchup against Whittemore-Prescott as a pretty substantial underdog.

  • Sacred Heart displayed grit in turning 0-3 start into playoff berth as it prepares for Fowler Friday night WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    In playing one of the most difficult schedules in the state for any Division 8 program, Sacred Heart had a tall task ahead when it started the season 0-3 with a regular season finale against powerhouse Mendon still lurking. But there was something about the Irish’s third loss, a 20-6 defeat against then-ranked Royal Oak Shrine, which proved very p...Read More

  • Ithaca clinches fifth straight unbeaten regular season and moves winning streak to 65 as it runs past Shepherd WITH PHOTO GALLERY
    Since the start of Ithaca’s winning streak in 2010, the regular season has not involved too many close showdowns. The only one that really sticks out came on Sept. 28, 2012, when Carrollton gave the Yellowjackets everything they could handle but it still ended in a 12-point triumph for Ithaca. That is the closest any opponent has come to defeatin...Read More


  • Mt. Pleasant SHA hangs with Mendon for a half before falling WITH PHOTO GALLERY
