Pine River 8th-12th Daily Announcements October 18, 2019
The JV football team capped its Highland Conference season with a wild 36-34 victory over Lake City Thursday night. They finished the conference season with 6 victories, 0 defeats, and 1 stinking tie. The win earned them the conference title outright. Excellent job by all. This team plays with heart, passion, and enthusiasm that will surely carry over in the next few years on the varsity level. The highlight of the evening was when Ben Lockhart returned an interception 60 yards for a touchdown right before halftime. The Bucks held a comfortable 28-14 lead, however, the very talented Lake City team stormed back to tie the score at 28 in the final quarter. The Bucks put together a great final drive, capped off with a Seth Duncan score to push ahead 36-28. The Trojans rallied with 6 points of their own, making it 36-34 with one minute left. The Bucks defense held up, not allowing the two point conversion. The night was not over though as Lake City recovered an on side kick. Kyle Root quickly erased any chance for an upset with an interception to seal the win. Austin Dean showed great leadership from his quarterback position through the contest. Congratulations to the entire team. Your coaches, parents, and community are very proud. The team plays its final contest on the road against Reed City next Thursday night. Go Bucks!
