Week 7 Football Recaps and scores

The GTC is expanding to 13 teams

(BROWN CITY) – The Sandusky Redskins picked up their second win of the season with a lopsided 52-14 win over rival Brown City. Both teams came into the game with just one win apiece this season.

The ‘Skins scored 7 touchdowns, two apiece by martin Tovar and sophomore Tyler Franzel to coast to the win. Tovar finished the game with 229 yards along with a pair of 16-year TD runs while Franzel, who rushed for 74 yards, scored on a pair of short runs.

Easton Jager scored one of Brown City’s touchdowns on a 55-yard double reverse play while Jacob jones scored on a short run for the Green Devils early in the third quarter. Sandusky finished the game with 424 yards rushing while holding Brown City to 137 yards.

Sandusky will host Memphis this week for their homecoming game while things don’t get any easier for the Green Devils as they travel to league leading and undefeated Ubly.

(MARLETTE) – Marlette crushed Caro in a GTC crossover game 42-7 in a game where longtime Marlette Coach Denny Lester was honored for 20 years of leading the Red Raider program. Since 2002, Lester has led his teams to 89 wins and guided the 2005 team to the schools first ever play-off appearance.

Friday night, Marlette built a 20-7 halftime lead before piling on 22 more points in the fourth quarter. Travis Fuller had an outstanding night for Marlette, rushing for 81 yards and rushing for three scores and added a fourth on a touchdown pass from Jason Tenbusch.

Marlette finished the night with 314 yards of total offense, with 193 of those coming on the ground. Tenbusch finished the game completing 8 of 15 passes for 121 yards.

The Red Raiders travel to Harbor Beach this Friday night for a key GTC-East battle that has plenty of play-off implications.

(PECK) – After opening the season with five consecutive wins, the Peck Pirates have now dropped two straight, following a 36-6 setback at the hands of Kingston at the Pirates homecoming game. It was a close 8-6 game until the visiting Cardinals punched in four second-hald touchdowns to nail down the NCTL crossover win. Things don’t get any easier for either team this week as Peck travels to undefeated North Huron while Kingston will host State power and undefeated Morrice.

(CROSWELL-LEXINGTON) – The Cros-Lex Pioneers clinched at least a share of the BWAC championship with a 58-6 win over Algonac in a homecoming game, coupled with Almont’s stunning 14-7 win over previously undefeated Armada.

The Pioneers will travel to Armada Friday night hoping to win the title outright.

In their win over Algonac, Cros-Lex relied on another strong performance from Jake Townsend. The senior completed 13 of 19 passes for 207 yards and three touchdowns.

Two of those were to his favorite target, Saige Slanac who had three receptions for 50 yards and the two TDs.

Special teams play for the Pioneers stepped up when Nolan Moore brought the crowd to their feet with a kickoff return for a touchdown and Gavin Espinoza returned a punt for a touchdown.

Offensive lineman Matt Lyons also got in on the scoring fun for Cros-Lex rumbling into the endzone for the Pioneers final TD of the night.
