The Manistique Emeralds put on quite an impressive display here Friday night defeating Westwood 28 – 13. The homecoming victory moved the Emerald record to 6-2, but more importantly the win secured their place in the playoffs for the second straight season.
Dustin Demers, who earned the Player of the Game award, had a huge game on offense, defense and special teams, spending little time on the side lines until a late 4 quarter ankle sprain put him on the bench for the final 3 minutes. Terry Martin was also key to the Emeralds win, with three sacks.
The Emeralds travel to St. Ignance next Friday night, for their final game of the regular season.
