Oceana County’s football season will end this week without a playoff bid for any team, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to play for — particularly in Hart.
Friday's scheduled Shelby @ Oakridge football game has been canceled due to the Tigers' shorthanded roster, athletic director Chuck Persenaire said Wednesday morning.
While Hart continues to show signs of growth and optimism for the future, things have been rough for Shelby and Hesperia as we head into week seven of the football season. But none of the squads are giving up as they head into more challenging games this Friday.
County football teams delivered a mixed bag last week — one game was a disappointing yet encouraging loss, one game fell short of what the team had hoped, and a third game was wiped out by COVID-19 protocols.
Hesperia's football game against Kent City Friday has been canceled due to COVID-19 outbreaks in both programs, as reported by M7 Sports.
It was a rough week in Oceana football, as the three local teams combined to score eight points, all by Hesperia. Bouncing back will be the key if Hart, Shelby and Hesperia are going to be able to enjoy success in week five of the football season.
County football teams each have a different sort of loss from which to bounce back this week as the season nears its halfway point.
Two weeks into the Oceana County football season, Hart has snatched the headlines as the area’s top team, with Thursday’s upset win over Kent City giving the Pirates their first 2-0 start since 2004.
ST. LOUIS — Hesperia played a solid first half Thursday night at St. Louis, but wasn't able to convert it into a good second half, as turnovers and miscues doomed the Panthers to a 39-18 loss.
RAVENNA — Shelby couldn't get much going or stop an explosive Ravenna offense Thursday night, and the Tigers dropped a 63-6 decision to open West Michigan Conference play.
