OK white football week two in review


Jake Heilman, Sports Editor in Chief

FHC, Lowell, and Greenville all stay atop the OK white after week two and head into this week with an unblemished 2-0 record. Cedar Springs was the only other OK white team to pick up a win, with FHN, Ottawa Hills and Northview all staying at 0-2.

FHC Rangers at West Ottawa Panthers: 30-27

FHC picked up an outstanding come-from-behind win against a much-improved Panther team. Full coverage of that game can already be found in “Varisty football completes incredible fourth quarter drive to beat West Ottowa 30-27.”

Holland Dutch at Ottawa Hills Bengals: 58-6

The Dutch jumped early and often on the Bengals, who have now lost 14 straight. Everyone would jump in the action Friday night for Holland, putting six Dutch in the end zone. Donovan Webb led the charge with three rushing touchdowns, his longest at 34 yards. Corbin Choummanivong capped off Holland’s scoring by taking a fumble 53 yards to the house.

Kenowa Hills Knights at Greenville Yellow Jackets: 0-29

Quarterback Curtis Heppe took the Knights almost single handily, putting in three of the four Greenville touchdowns, all on the ground. After throwing for 152 yards and running for another 128, it makes for an easy player of the game decision. Kenowa was shut down by the Yellow Jacket defense after pounding Ottawa Hills the week before.

Battle Creek Lakeview Spartans at Cedar Springs Red Hawks: 13-60

Cedar Springs picked up a massive win over Lakeview, after getting throttled last week by Zeeland West. Lakeview was a playoff team last season, getting knocked out by FHC in the first round, but this year has had an average start. Cedar Springs will have a big test this week against Greenville and will either prove their OK white presence or struggle like years past.

Forest Hills Northern Huskies at East Grand Rapids Pioneers: 20-38

EGR picks up their second win of the season, after taking care of Farmington Hills Harrison week one. FHN has dropped their first two games for the second consecutive season but will have a chance to pick up a win this upcoming week against Northview.

Lowell Red Arrows at Rockford Rams: 14-0

David Cruz put a touchdown in for Lowell and led them to a commanding win over Rockford Friday. Lowell improves to 2-0 on the year, and has another rivalry week coming quickly with EGR looming on the horizon. Lowell then finishes their season with six straight OK white matchups in week four through nine.

Northview Wildcats at Jenison Wildcats: 14-24

Northview improved upon their performance last week but still came out on the wrong end against Jenison. Forest Hills Northern will be Northview’s next opponent, and their best chance to sneak a win in the early going. Northview will be at FHN, giving an edge to the Huskies, but it is a winnable game for Northview.
