Marquette takes top spot, Pickford holds steady in second week of high school football polls
MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) -
A conference win on the road against Menominee was enough for voters to give Marquette (3-1) the top spot in the latest poll. The Redmen only had one first place vote, but earned enough points to get the top spot over a crowded poll.
Sault Ste. Marie (3-1) who beat Marquette weeks ago before falling to Gladstone, rebounded with a 34-13 against Benzie Central. The Blue Devils had three first place votes, but come in at number two in the poll. They’re followed by Kingsford (3-1) at three, who took down now fourth ranked Gladstone (2-1) in a 30-28 shootout last Friday.
Fifth place is a tie between Iron Mountain (3-0) and Negaunee (3-1) who have both looked good so far this year, even if their opponents haven’t.
Also receiving a point was Calumet (1-1) who hope to get back to their winning ways after a couple weeks off due to COVID-19 in the Copper Country.
Pickford (4-0) received all five first place votes again this week to give them first place in the rankings. They’re followed closely though by a pair of perfect teams, North Central (4-0) and Munising (4-0).
Pickford will be put to the test this week facing a hot Rapid River (3-1) team. North Central faces a tough challenge this week, Lake Linden-Hubbell (2-1), who gets the fourth spot in the rankings. While Munising hopes to keep rolling when they travel to Cedarville (3-1), who rounds out the top five.
Stephenson (3-1) also picked up two points during voting.
