Prep football: Ishpeming crushes Newberry
NEWBERRY – Adam Prisk scored three touchdowns as Ishpeming remained undefeated Friday with a 46-7 mercy-rule win over host Newberry in high school football.
Prisk blocked a punt and recovered the ball for a TD, scored on a 12-yard run and took a 14-yard fumble recovery into the end zone for the Hematites (8-0).
Bobby Zhulkie, who recorded four two-point conversion runs, added a 12-yard scoring run.
IHS quarterback Alex Briones contributed a 9-yard TD run and a 30-yard scoring pass to Tyrus Millimaki.
“That’s a good football team,” Newberry head coach Fred Bryant said of the Hematites. “We gave them a short field three times in the first half, which made it tough on us.”
Darik Marsh notched a 21-yard TD pass from QB John Paramski for the Indians (3-5).
Munising 17, Stephenson 8
At Stephenson, the Mustangs’ Andy Cooper scored all 17 of his team’s points, catching two TD passes from quarterback Austin Kelto, kicking both extra points and booting a 25-yard field goal just before halftime.
Munising improved to 3-2 in the Mid-Eastern Football Conference and 5-3 overall.
The Mustangs built a 17-0 lead in the wind and rain before Stephenson (4-4, 1-3) got on the board in the final minute of the third quarter when Alex Starzynski scored on a 7-yard run.
Cooper’s scoring passes were of 24 yards about midway through the first quarter and four yards near the midpoint of quarter No. 3.
Cody Hayes carried the bulk of the workload for the Mustangs, rushing 28 times for 102 yards as his team totaled 36 tries for 124 yards.
Kelto completed 11 of 13 for 187 yards and no interceptions.
Westwood 34 (OT)
At Westwood, the final result came down to an extra point that Manistique blocked at the end of the first overtime.
Before that, Ryan Anttila made two of three of those kicks, while Manistique’s Cameron Page made all five his tries.
The Emeralds’ Cole Potvin opened the scoring with a 67-yard interception return for a touchdown, though Westwood tied it 7-7 before the first quarter was over when Tyler Harvala scampered into the end zone from one yard out.
Manistique (1-7, 1-5 Mid-Peninsula Conference) took control with three second-quarter TDs on a Ryan Ramey 14-yard run and Potvin pass catches of 12 and 14 yards from Tyler Kangas.
Westwood clawed back in the second half as Derek Wing had a 3-yard TD run and Brandon Benda a 4-yard scoring run in the third. Benda forced OT with a 1-yard run in the fourth and also the two-point conversion run.
Ramey gave the Emeralds the lead in OT on a 7-yard TD run, while Wing answered with a 3-yarder in his team’s half of the fifth period.
Pats’ QB Trevor Burke completed 4 of 9 passes for 102 yards and an interception, while Kangas was 9 of 17 for 123 yards and a pickoff.
