The Manistique Emeralds got off to a quick start here Friday night needing only two plays on their first set of downs to take a 7 – 0 lead over the host North Central Jets. North Central, who have been plagued by injury, were no match for the Emeralds giving up 39 first half points in route to a 46 – 30 drubbing, which gave the Emeralds a chance to use their second unit players for the better part of the second half.
Manistique, who improves to 4 – 1 with their forth consecutive victory, host the Iron Mt. Mountaineers next Friday in a key conference match for a share of the Mid – Pen Conf. title.
