Houghton, Calumet Earn Football Wins – Saturday Sports Wrap

Click on the highlighted scores for additional game details.

In high school football last evening…
• Houghton pounded Gwinn 54-6. Wyatt Jenkins powered the Gremlins to a 40-0 halftime lead, running for three touchdowns and five two-point conversions. Camden Markham and Gab Carlson also scored. JV callup Braden Goudge turned in a 72 yard kickoff return in the second half.
• Three third-quarter touchdowns lifted Calumet to a 41-22 victory over L’Anse. The teams played to a 14-14 tie in the first half, with the Copper Kings getting touchdown runs from Amar Patterson and Aksel Loukus. The Hornets scored on runs by Kellen Koskinen and Dean Magaraggia. Patterson ripped off a 65-yard scoring run on the first play from scrimmage in the second half. Calumet then turned two L’Anse fumbles into touchdowns, with Aksel Loukus passing to Gabe Mattila for one, and Garrett Peterson running two yards for the other. Patterson tallied his third touchdown of the night early in the fourth quarter, and the Hornets closed the scoring with a 70-yard Magaraggia to Gavin Cadeau pass play. Patterson rolled up 173 yards on 16 carries for the Copper Kings, and the Calumet defense held the L’Anse rushing attack to just 77 yards.

The wins set up playoff appearances for both the Copper Kings and Gremlins in Division Six. Menominee upset Kingsford 42-41, so the projection is that Calumet will open the playoffs at Menominee. Houghton will likely play at Negaunee. L’Anse may still be in the playoffs, despite last night’s loss – if so, they’ll open at Traverse City St. Francis in Division Seven.

Today, Lake Linden-Hubbell hosts Ontonagon.
