REED CITY — Traveling from Reed City to the Marquette Superior Dome may be a long trip but it’s one Coyote football players had wished they would be taking this week.
Earlier this month, the Coyote season ended at 10-1 with a 22-20 loss to Oakridge. The Muskegon team went on to beat Millington 31-12 at home in the regional finals to earn the trip to the Dome to play Menominee this weekend. The Coyotes, with a win over Oakridge, would have played Millington at home. How that match-up would have turned out is obviously unknown but the Coyotes would have had an excellent chance of advancing.
