North Muskegon 36 Holton 20
After their win over Holton earlier this season the Norse stumbled into the tournament dropping 3 out of their last 4 with only a win over cellar dwelling Mason County Central.
But they regrouped well for the post season running off three straight wins and capturing the District title with a door slamming defensive effort over Holton.
Coach Swanson: “North Muskegon did a great job of taking away our middle touches tonight. We really struggled to get going offensively and it’s a credit to them.”
It was a low scoring contest with NM inching out to an 8-5 lead after one and the teams reaching break with the Norse up 17-11.
“Very proud of the kids in our program and what they accomplished,” added the coach. “ I was very lucky to have great seniors, Poling and Mclean, leading our team to such a great season.
“They leave behind a great legacy.”
