09/26/2014 Munising High School, Munising, MI –

The first quarter began in Munising, MI as the Munising Mustangs hosted the Manistique Emeralds for an exciting, mid-season clash. The weather could have been described as ‘summer-like’, with temeperatures in the high seventies and gorgeous sun for most of the day. Austin Kelto and Ian Mcinnis, both who returned last game for Munising, were back in action and in full health to aid their Munising Mustangs in battle against the Manistique Emeralds. The Munising Mustangs kicked-off to start the game, but the Manistique Emeralds were unable to do anything with their first drive, with the Munising Mustangs stopping the Manistique Emeralds on fourth and two on their own 30 yard line. Corey Cotey scored the Munising Mustangs’ first touchdown with a strong run, followed by a good extra point attempt, making the score the Munising Mustangs 7, the Manistique Emeralds 0. On the next drive for the Munising Mustangs, they were able to complete another run for a touchdown, and good extra point, to make the score the Munising Mustangs 14 and the Manistique Emeralds 0. On the Manistique Emeralds next offensive drive, Andy Cooper made an amazing interception on the Manistique Emeralds 39 yardline and ran it back for touchdown and good extra point to make the score the Munising Mustangs 21 and the Manistique Emeralds 0 as the first quarter ended.

The second quarter started as the Munising Mustangs kicked-off to the Manistique Emeralds, but the first drives of the quarter for both teams did not result in any points. As the sun began to set and the temperature to cool, the Manistique Emeralds fought ever harder to contain the Munising Mustangs offense that was so explosive in the first quarter. Garrett Blank was able to score a very long touchdown on a superb run, and a good extra point made the score the Munising Mustangs 28 and the Manistique Emeralds 0 with about five minutes left in the half. A fumble from the Munising Mustangs offense late in the half gave the Manistique Emeralds a shimmer of hope, but the Munising Mustangs were able to recover the fumble. Andy Cooper caught a pass and ran nearly 70-yards for a touchdown and good extra point to make the score the Munising Mustangs 35 and the Manistique Emeralds 0 at the end of the half.
