Reed City returns home for three games

REED CITY  — What’s been extremely impressive about Reed City’s 6-0 start is that five of the first six games, including four in a row, have been on the road.

The Coyotes are back home Friday to start a three-game road trip. Friday night, it’s homecoming against Central Montcalm. The final three regular-season games are all at home.

“We’re very happy to be back home for the home stretch,” Reed City coach Monty Price said. There are games at home Oct. 16 with Chippewa Hills and Oct. 23 with McBain.

As of Sunday, the injury situation was up in the air for the Coyotes.

“We’re a little banged up and have some kids trying to heal up quick,” Price said. “We’ll have (team medical officials) look at them and see where we’re at. It will be a day-to-day decision with a couple of kids.”

Coming off the win over Big Rapids, Price said there would be various areas of focus for this team during this week.

“We have to stress our offensive line play,” Price said. “After looking at the film and evaluating it, we feel we executed very poorly up front and could have done a much better job. It was a little bit uncharacteristic of us to play a little sloppy. So it’s back to practice and we’ll try to fine-tune those issues.”
