Kent City Concludes Season at Muskegon Catholic Central

Kent City traveled west to Muskegon Catholic Central for a first round showdown a year after missing the post season. MCC made their debut in Division 6 and took the victory over the visiting Eagles after a close first half that widened inside the final two minutes of the half when a Crusader interception gave MCC field position and another touchdown to go up 21-7 at half.

The Eagles had a key injury to burly senior running back and linebacker Mason Westbrook, which hampered Kent City on both sides of the ball, but most noticeably on offense. The Eagles suffered another devastating injury that stopped gameplay for an extended period of time as KC senior linebacker and tight end Chase Moreno went down with a broken fibula.

The Eagles made one more push for a score, but were stifled at the goal line and ended the season with a 42-14 loss.

Perhaps, interestingly enough, electrical service to the stadium was experiencing issues, which kept half the lighting from functioning and the scoreboard was only lit intermittently throughout the night.

Muskegon Catholic Central will travel to face a formidable foe in Reed City in what is likely to be a very tough contest for the Crusaders.

Potter’s House Dominates Muskegon Catholic Central

New seasons bring new challenges and while some teams return key pieces, almost all teams must readjust or retool their identities after graduation strikes.

The Potter’s House Pumas were no exception on Tuesday night with the graduation of towering center Gift Okampo last spring and a knee injury to veteran varsity guard Gabby Baez. Despite those vacancies, the Pumas traveled to Muskegon with one thing on their minds: beating the Crusaders of Muskegon Catholic Central.

The Pumas wasted little time, jumping all over the Crusaders with a suffocating defense that flipped into fast break opportunities throughout the night. The effort put the Crusaders down big at the half and things never seemed in doubt after that.

Potter’s House cycled wave after wave of fresh legs onto the court and kept the pressure on until the final buzzer. The Pumas were led in scoring by junior guard, Joy McClendon.
