Manistique took a huge step towards a play off berth defeating the Mustangs 14 – 7 here in Munising Friday night. Tied at 7 going into the second half, back up quarterback Gunner Michelson, who replaced Sr. QB and brother Josh Michelson(concussion), led the Emeralds to the only score they would need late in the 3rd. quarter. The Emeralds defense would not allow the Mustangs a second half score and workhorse Jared Turan kept the time of possession in Manistiques’ favor with 38 carries.
The Emeralds will face Westwood this Friday and a homecoming victory will put the Emeralds in the playoffs for the second straight season.
