Prep football: Newberry edges Manistique 7-6

MANISTIQUE – Tight end Darik Marsh caught a 21-yard touchdown pass with 1:27 left in the game Friday night to give the Newberry High School football team a 7-6 non-conference win over host Manistique.

Quarterback John Paramski, who found Marsh for the late aerial, then kicked the extra point to give the Indians the win and a 3-4 season record.

We had a play-action pass set up to (Marsh),” Indians coach Fred Bryant said. “He got a nice block on the outside.

“It was touch-and-go for a while. We had drives in the first and second quarter where we were intercepted at the goal line each time.”

Austin Miller had given Manistique (0-7) a 6-0 lead in the third quarter with a 4-yard scoring run.

“We changed our defensive alignment up front,” Bryant said. “We made it tough for them to run and forced the pass.”

Stephenson 50, Gwinn 6

At Gwinn Friday, the host Modeltowners took it on the chin in a 50-6 non-conference loss to Stephenson.

“We’re getting beat up (with injuries),” Gwinn head coach Darren Sinnaeve said. “We’ve lost 8-9 players and are now down to 16 on our roster.”

He said Justin Nyquist (bruised lung) and Nick Miller (head blow) were taken to the hospital after the game.

Quintin Lukasik scored touchdowns on runs of 3, 10 and 15 yards for the Eagles (4-3).

Jacob Spaude added TD runs on 15 yards and one yard.
