The Maroons held the Red Robins to three first downs. “We like to bring pressure,” Menominee defensive coordinator Dave Mathieu said. “We feel that’s better than sitting back and covering. Attack instead of react.” … Gladstone defeated Gwinn 34-8 for its first win since August 2012. It was also the career victory for Coach Cody Kangas … Stephenson, with just 14 players suited up, bowed to Westwood 40-16 … Gogebic (Bessemer-Wakefield co-op) rushed for 427 yards in downing Hancock 36-14. Three Gogebic backs each went over 100 yards although Miners coach Mark Mazzon said McAfee Field’s artificial surface was “kind of slippery.”
