The Manistique Emerald JV were featured as part of bonus high school football coverage here at A.F. Hall Stadium on Thursday night. In their most competitive and hard hitting performances of the 2008 season, the much improved JV Emeralds battled the Munising Mustangs JV to a 36 -20 loss in a game which saw Munising, who had a distinct size and numbers advantage, get all they wanted from the Emeralds.
FB John Barker highlighted the Emeralds scoring with a 55 yard scamper for a TD and QB Cody Kayser hit Jake Syers on a three yard TD pass for twelve of the Ems 20 points. Defensively, Eddie Unger blocked a punt and Kyle Tiglas had an interception.
The JV Emeralds travel to Westwood next Thursday to take on the Patriots.
