BRIDGMAN — The Mendon football team got a great defensive performance in a convincing 39-12 win over St. Joseph Lake Michigan Catholic Friday at Bridgman.
“I think the kids did a good job executing the adjustments we made during the game,” said Mendon coach Bobby Kretschman.
“We were patient offensively and our defense did a nice job getting after their quarterback. They had less than 100 yards of offense before their last drive when we had some second string kids and JVs in, but it’s important for those kids to get experience. They work hard all week preparing us so it’s nice to get them in.”
After a scoreless first quarter, Mendon built a 20-6 lead by halftime.
The Hornets got on the scoreboard first on a nine-yard scoring pass from Hunter Lovell to Jake DeRyke for a 6-0 lead with 10:02 left in the second quarter.
Lake Michigan Catholic (8-2) tied the game up at 6-6 with 6:40 left in the half on a 20-yard pass.
