After a victory over the Munising Mustangs earlier in the week the Westwood Patriots hosted the Negaunee Miners on Friday night in the District 94 Finals. The Patriots entered with a 9 and 12 record and were hoping to end the Miners' perfect 21 and 0 season. The Miners had just eliminated the Gwinn Model Towners on Tuesday night and still had some steam left over as they quickly established a firm lead in the first quarter. By the end of the first half the Miners were on fire with a lead of 34 to 12.
Entering the second half the Patriots stepped up their game, mirroring Gwinn's second half assault on Negaunee Tuesday night. Unfortunately for Westwood it just wouldn't be enough as the Miners maintained their commanding lead all the way to a 65 to 38 victory and their fifth consecutive district championship. On Monday Negaunee goes up against the Eagles of Stephenson. You can listen to the game on Sunny 101.9, WKQS FM starting at about 5:30.
