Football re-cap

An exciting first day of playoff football action on Tuesday evening. The Grand Rapids Thunderhawks with their first win since 2012, 35-6 over Hibbing. Eric Soderberg 266 yards and 4 TD’s in the win. The Thunderhawks head to Public School Stadium in Duluth to take on the undefeated and #1 seed Cloquet Lumberjacks. The game will be broadcast on 1320 – KOZY.

An epic (and I don’t use the term lightly) 6 OT game in Coleraine as the Duluth Marshall Hilltoppers finally prevailed over GNK 64-62 as they stopped a GNK 2 point conversion attempt in the 6th OT. Way too much to write about so just listen to the Tom Downing re-cap.
