Dryden Nelson and Kip Kangas ran for touchdowns, and Nolan Sturos caught a TD pass from Hans Kiilunen, who was filling in at quarterback for the injured Paul Sturos. The Copper Kings improve to 4-2, and will play at Houghton next Saturday. Coverage will begin at 12:40 on the Voice of the Gremlins, 97.7 The Wolf.
