The Traverse City Record-Eagle reports that Suttons Bay will play in the state Regional football finals this Friday (Nov 12). The 11-0 Norsemen are coming off a 42-6 crushing of Farwell in Districts and will meet the 10-1 Iron Mountain Mountaineers Friday night at 7 PM in Suttons Bay.
“Big, strong, physical,” Suttons Bay coach Joe Trudeau said, sizing up the Mountaineers. “They have the best line, by far, that we’ve seen this year. We’ll have our work cut out for us.”
Iron Mountain’s lone loss came in the season-opener when the Mountaineers fell to Ishpeming, which is undefeated and in the Division 7 regionals.
“And Iron Mountain led that game 20-6 with four minutes to go,” Trudeau said.
This will be Suttons Bay’s third consecutive playoff game at home.
