Menominee @ Kingsford - 2017 District Championship D5R1D1

Postby GNCrocks » Sun Oct 29, 2017 10:44 am

Earlier this season it was a great game for 2.5 qtrs. Then when Kingsford's size started to pull the game in thier favor Menominee imploded. Both teams come off great first round wins, and records don't matter with these two....discuss.

Kingsford lost 2 starters in the Gladstone game to injury next man up mentality at this point should be a great game though Menominee gonna be riled up to send kingsford home after losing to them earlier this season

Any idea on how long the Kingsford players will be out? I know Kreski left early. If he's out for awhile that will hurt.

Flivvers also get one starter back that wasn't there the last time these teams played and another one looks darn close to returning. If the two kids who went out for Kingsford last week cannot return... they would miss them, but this Flivver team hasn't let anything bother them all year. Don't expect a drop-off.

This will be the 11th playoff meeting between Kingsford and Menominee since 1991.

A couple interesting facts:
- all playoffs games between these two schools have been on Saturday except for the first meeting in 1991. That one was played in the Superior Dome in the first year the Dome opened on the opening day of deer season in the UP.
- Kingsford leads the playoff series 6-4.
- Coach Noha is 2-0 against Kingsford in the playoffs.
- The team that won the regular season game is 7-3 in the playoff rematch
- Menominee has won the last 8 D5 R1D1 District Championships
- Kingsford's last won a District in 2009. It was D4.
- Last time Menominee beat Kingsford in playoffs when losing to them in the regular season. 2012.
- Last time Kingsford beat Menominee twice in a season. 2004.

So interestingly enough the teams broke tradition this year and are playing this game on Friday night. First time ever one of these programs in hosting a Friday night playoff game against the other. Kind of cool.

Losing Kreski hurts because of his experience and he plays both ways. Zimmerman had a good game against Gladstone. He is a little bigger and will help against the run. I am looking forward to another GNC battle. Good luck to both teams and may the best team win.

One is lost for season with broken collarbone kreski I haven’t heard how bad it is but didn’t look good should be a great game either way kingsford still has the size advantage on the lines and that was a huge difference last game between these two teams

Hancock gave Menominee all they could handle and them some Saturday. Wasn't expecting that tight of a game considering how competitive the GNC was this year. In the end I think this will be a tighter game compared to the regular season meeting but I think Kingsford will pull away late.

Turnovers hurt Menominee badly against kingsford the first time and also hurt them against Hancock if they don’t turn it over in either game they could of beat kingsford and beaten Hancock by a lot more. If they hold on to the ball they have a great shot of winning this game. My prediction is a 42-35 Kingsford victory being on home field gets them the win here

A Kingsford victory gives them the right to host the Regional Championship reguardless the winner of the other game... (Claire @ Reed City).
If Menominee were to win, they would be on the road regardless of the winner of the other game as well.

Very good game. Kingsford won the first game because Menominee turned the ball over and Menominee won this game because Kingsford turned the ball over. If Menominee can continue to not turn the ball over they will be hard to beat.
