Potterville High School
Oscoda Area High School
The Potterville Vikings traveled far and wide for their opening contest but were outmanned by the Oscoda Owls. Potterville kept the contest close for the first two quarters but an ill timed interception at the end of the 2nd quarter allowing Oscoda to stretch its lead going into half time by two scores. In the second half the Owls continued to punish the Vikings on the ground and stymied Pottervilles offense leading to a lopsided 47-12 score.
Some outstanding individual performances were turned in by Vikings Junior Hunter Geisenhaver with 12 tackles and sophomore Miles Murphy with 13 tackles. Offensively junior Zane Stanton led the attack with 18/41 passing totaling 273 yards and 2 tds. His main target was newcomer senior Zack Yarger who racked up 7 catches for 108 yds and 1 TD.
