OK White football week one in review


Last week’s non-conference win was not the only big OK white victory that the conference brought back Thursday night. The Rangers now sit atop the conference with Lowell and Greenville, all 1-0. FHN, Ottawa Hills, Cedar Springs and Northview all struggled in week one, falling to 0-1.

Jenison Wildcats at FHC Rangers 0-41

The defense shined bright and early in a huge week one victory. All the details are right here on The Central Trend in a story posted directly after the game Thursday night.

Ottawa Hills Bengals at Kenowa Hills Knights 0-37

Ottawa Hills’ woes continued from last season, as a young Kenowa team beat them handily at home. Ottawa Hills struggled on both sides of the football, failing to score any points for their defense who was on the ropes from the opening kick off. The Knights running back Dylan Mackey ran for 215 yards on 15 carries and exposed the Ottawa Hills defense last week.

Greenville Yellow Jackets at North Farmington Raiders 47-7

Greenville comes into this season after an early first round playoff exit last season and finds themselves without top tier defensive players from the previous season. They came out and made their mark regardless without their graduated players. Greenville faces Kenowa Hills next week, both coming off of huge week one wins.

Byron Center Bulldogs at FHN Huskies 21-14

Forest Hills Northern had rookie troubles on Thursday, as first-year quarterback disease plagued the offense. Running back, Marcus Cisco, ran through the Huskie defense for all three of the Bulldogs touchdowns. FHN also had an early exit from last year’s playoffs, falling to an incredibly high flying Muskegon team that ended up losing in the state finals by one to Orchard Lake St Mary’s.

Lowell Red Arrows at Warren DeLaSalle 36-6

The perennial powerhouse did not skip a beat with an absolute pounding of a weakened Warren DeLaSalle Pilots team. In 2015 the Pilots won the state finals, and have never been the same ever since. Lowell is now 24-2 in their last 26 games with their only losses coming to Detroit Martin Luther King in the state finals in 2015, and Walled Lake Western in the state semifinals in 2016.

Zeeland West Dux at Cedar Springs Red Hawks 50-12

Zeeland West beat Cedar for the second opener in a row and started their attempt at their 8th straight run to the playoffs. Cedar had no offensive flow and has a stacked schedule coming ahead with Battle Creek Lakeview and Greenville quickly looming.

Comstock Park Panthers at Northview Wildcats 51-21

Northview comes in after their worst season since 2007 at 1-8. First-year head coach and former FHC offensive line coach, Tripp Gallery, attempts to contain Northview throughout this season. It was a misfire week one, but it will take a while for everyone to turn the train around and get them back on the right track.
