Nordics notch share of title

RAPID RIVER — North Dickinson bolted to a 22-0 lead in the first quarter and clinched a share of the Wolverine Conference football championship with a 52-12 rout of Rapid River here Friday.
The top-ranked Nordics (4-1 overall, 3-0 Wolverine) captured their 13th league title since the Joe Reddinger era began in 1977. They host Forest Park for homecoming next Friday.
“We came out focused and took care of the job at hand,” Reddinger said. “We talked about not having a letdown.”
Luke Holsworth registered four Nordic touchdowns — three on runs of nine, five and 30 yards along with a 71-yard aerial from Gus Almonroeder.
Kevin Roell produced 115 yards rushing and one TD run. Jim Bates had another scoring run.
Roell collected 13 tackles from a linebacker slot; linebacker Manley Murray, nine, and noseguard Tyler Hoffman, seven.
Murray and Nick Nelson recovered fumbles.
“They (North Dickinson) do a good job,” said Rockets’ coach Steve Ostrenga. “They execute real well. They were real sharp.”
Terris Anderson also led the Rockets on defense with 12 solo tackles and eight assists. Lance Hardwick added nine solos and nine assists and Kevin Callahan had five solos and five assists.
Ostrenga said the Rockets took a step in the right direction despite the loss. “We didn’t give up as many big plays,” he noted. “We stayed together and played as a team. We have a lot of first-year players and they’re learning. They kept working non-stop.”
Rapid River (0-5 overall, 0-2 league) hosts Bark River-Harris Friday.

WIC zips Gremlins

IRON RIVER — After a sluggish start, West Iron County turned on the gas and shut out Houghton 34-0 in West-PAC Conference football action Friday.
“They got a little drive going early and kept the ball away from us,” Wykon coach Mike Berutti said. “We stopped them but then we fumbled and gave it right back to them.”
The Wykons were able to overcome the miscue and rolled 84 yards with fullback Ryan Shamion capping the drive off with a six-yard touchdown run.
“It was just a simple center-quarterback exchange, a play that should never happen in high school football,” Berutti said. “But we held them and were able to take it in from there.”
West Iron was able to rack up three scores in the second quarter, with Wyatt Hill running in from nine yards out and tailback Pat Koski hitting paydirt from 34 yards for a 21-0 lead.
“We were getting a good spread on offense and we kept them off-balance,” Berutti said. “Plus we were able to throw the ball. (Kyle) Sabotta’s getting better at the quarterback position every game and the line is blocking extremely well.”
For the remainder of the game, Berutti turned the game over to the second squad and they were able to add third and fourth quarter touchdowns from Wyatt Hill and Cody Jones and the second team defense remained as stoic as the starters.
“Our second teamers saw a lot of action and were able to score and not be scored upon,” Berutti said. “It’s great for the younger guys to get in game action and play very well.”
The Wykons were led by Hill with 73 yards on the ground and Sabotta was 7 of 9 for 91 yards passing for the Wykons (3-2) who travel to Phillips, Wis. Friday for a non-conference game.
“I know that Houghton’s down now and have some injury problems,” Berutti said. “I’ve also seen a lot of good things from our guys in the past few weeks and we’re looking to get even better.
