The MTU football team suffered a lopsided 51-24 loss at Hillsdale College Saturday afternoon. The Huskies fell behind early, closed the gap to 27-24 late in the third quarter, then saw the Chargers score 24 unanswered points to put the game away. Brandon Cowie completed 27 of 41 passes for 308 yards and one touchdown for the Huskies. He threw two interceptions, as Tech turned the ball over four times. John Williams rushed for 96 yards.

The Michigan Tech volleyball team defeated Tiffin 3-0 (25-21, 25-23, 25-15) on Saturday to salvage a split on their Ohio road trip.

The MTU soccer team entertains Grand Valley State today at noon.

The Northern Michigan University football team earned a 29-24 Homecoming victory over Northwood Saturday.  Jake Mayon’s one-yard plunge with 25 seconds remaining capped an 82-yard drive that won the game for the Wildcats.

The Finlandia University volleyball team dropped the final game of its own invitational 3-0 (25-11, 25-9, 25-10) to Maranatha Baptist Saturday.


The Finlandia women’s soccer team lost 3-0 at Mount Mary University Saturday. The Lady Lions will play at MacMurray College today. The Finlandia men’s team plays at Bluffton this afternoon.

Wartburg College scored five touchdowns in the second quarter, and cruised to a 56-0 victory over the Finlandia football team Saturday afternoon. Freshman Jake Hugall set a new Finlandia school record with 16 tackles.


The Kansas City Royals scored five runs off Francisco Rodriguez in the ninth inning, and defeated the Detroit Tigers 7-4 Saturday. Detroit starter Daniel Norris left in the sixth inning after throwing his 100th pitch, but limited the Royals to two runs, and struck out six.

The Tigers entertain the Royals again this afternoon. Matt Boyd will start against Edinson Volquez. Hear the first pitch at 1:10 on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.

The Indians also lost, but Detroit’s loss means that any combination of two more Cleveland victories or Detroit losses clinches the American League Central Division title for the Indians. Baltimore won, so Detroit trails the Orioles by a half-game in the race for the second American League wild card playoff berth.

The Milwaukee Brewers fell to the Cincinnati Reds 6-1 Saturday. Domingo Santana’s home run provided Milwaukee’s only score.

The Brewers play their final home game of the season against the Reds this afternoon. Wily Peralta will pitch against Brandon Finnegan.

The Detroit Lions visit the Green Bay Packers today for a 1:00 game.
