Escanaba vs GRCC - 2017 Div 4 Semi-Finals

Postby GNCrocks » Sat Nov 11, 2017 12:36 pm

Place and time TBD, as of noon 11.11.2017.

MHSAA waiting on results of Menominee & WIC games most likely. With NMU hosting the 8-man state finals next week, and the yet to be determined # of U.P. semi-final teams will determine if NMU is used, and if so when. Most people making educated guesses are saying Traverse City (I personal am just guessing Petoskey).

This will be a rematch of last years Regional that was played at GRCC.
GRCC last year had 2 great receivers, who left, and now this year has a stud running back in Nolan Fugate who has set a GRCC game record of 477 yards in week 7 at home.

GRCC is 12-0, and reaped the benefit of 6 regular season home games, including the first 4 all in a row. at home.

Most predictions of WHERE this game will be played (Superior Dome, TC, Petoskey, Alma College or Ferris) are all turf fields. While Escanaba is also fast, they would benefit, IMO, of a game on grass in Cheboygan, Gaylord etc... I am putting my personal money that the game will be in Petoskey, but we shall see soon. Not sure how much,if any, input either teams have in Semi-Final sites or if its all MHSAA choice.

I do not think, regardless of field or location, that this year's game will be the one sided show it was last year was. GRCC, while a better record is not the same team they were last year, and neither is Escanaba.

I will be on location updating drives regardless of location. Now I am off to Reed City to watch Menominee.

If they can find a way to stop RB Nolan Fugate of GRCC than Esky has a chance to win. He had 293 yards in the win against Belding. No one has been able to stop him yet this year, and he had a 475 yard game this year, and 2300 yards rushing with 30 touchdowns for the year

Good luck to Esky and their fans. May you keep it going!

Here is a Norse song for inspiration. This Norwegian group uses some primitive instruments & deer hide drums and sings from the heart. May you too play from the heart!:

For those you can't get the WYKX stream or MHSAA.TV, I will post each and every Drive here.
I will post once the drive is over, turn over occurs or a timeout/end of period.

For those unfamiliar, I use a shorthand the best I can....

2-7 = 2nd down and 7 to go.
I will try to post field position at start of drive or where each first down starts best I can. Also time does not always allow me to put in a name of who carried or caught the ball. Usual example will go like this.

2-7....run sweep to right for 3 yards.
3-4....pass completed +20 to the Cougars 14, first down.

1-10 @ Cougar 14...

Enjoy the game!

Go Mos!
