OK white varsity football week six wrap up


Forest Hills Central Rangers vs. Forest Hills Northern Huskies 31-14

As FHC clinched themselves a playoff berth, the defense was impenetrable yet again. Despite the slow offensive start, FHC was able to put up 31 total points and come out with a very convincing victory. This puts FHN at 2-4 on the season and would need to win out if there was any hope for them to make the playoffs. FHC, however, finds themselves tied for first at the top of the OK white conference, with an unblemished conference and overall record. FHN will square off against the Red Hawks this week, and try to resist elimination from the state playoffs. FHC is in for an immense challenge against the Red Arrows of Lowell, whom they haven’t beaten since 1999.

Ottawa Hills Bengals at Greenville Yellow Jackets 6-42

Greenville took advantage of the easier week and stormed to an easy win Friday night. The Yellow Jackets picked up their first conference win of the season, with their third win overall putting them at 3-3. Ottawa Hills continues to struggle on both sides of the ball and now finds themselves at 0-18 in their last 18 games. Greenville will take on Northview with a good opportunity to move themselves closer to a playoff berth. Ottawa Hills looks for their first win against the Grandville Bulldogs of the OK red.

Lowell Red Arrows at Cedar Springs Red Hawks 14-28

This was a stunner. The Red Hawks had not beaten the Red Arrows since 1981 but broke that streak on Friday night. After a failed fourth down conversion from Cedar, Lowell went driving down to score. After a great read by a Red Hawk corner, Cedar Springs intercepted a David Kruse pass and sealed the game. With Lowell consistently winning the OK white, this puts both FHC and Cedar Springs in outstanding positions to steal a conference title for the first time in a long time. Lowell tries to recover this week against a studly FHC team, while Cedar Springs faces FHN on the road.

Northview Wildcats at Hudsonville Eagles 14-27

Northview’s offensive woes continued against OK red opponent Hudsonville at the home of the Eagles. Northview drops to 0-6, while Hudsonville improves to 2-4 on the year. The Wildcats will have another challenging game against Greenville, but have home field advantage on their side. They try to pick up their first win and break a last-place tie in the OK white.
