Friday night’s Lake Michigan standouts

*A player we covered live earlier in the season, Baldwin senior Andon Ware, ran 18 times for 285 yards and three TDs, and caught another score, in a 48-13 defeat of Manistee Catholic.

*Grand Rapids Christian’s offense is beyond explosive. They led Hudsonville at the half, 56-7, and ended up winning 59-13. Senior QB Alex VanDeVusse played just that first half, completing 15-of-20 throws for 305 yards and five TDs. Junior All-American Drake Harris caught seven of them for 154 yards and two TDs.

*Holland Christian’s Ross Schreur and Kyle Steigenga were a similarly potent senior-junior pass-catch combo. Schreur connected on 15-of-28 passes for 347 yards and four TDs, three of them to Steigenga who made five catches for 158 yards. HC running back had 140 yards and two TDs on 15 attempts and pulled in five catches for 105 and a TD.

*Muskegon’s defense once again shut down one of the top rushing attacks in the Lake Michigan area. A week after holding Rockford to 25 yards on 22 attempts on the grown, the Big Reds did Lowell even worse, -1 on 21 attempts in a 36-21 win. The Red Arrows defense couldn’t say the same, as Muskegon senior running backĀ  Marcus Smith carried it nine times for 145 yards and three TDs.

*He’s back to full form. Montague’s Brandon Moore, Lake Michigan’s most talented skill position senior, ran 10 times for 113 yards and two TDs, had two catches for 63 yards and two TDs, and was 5-of-8 passing for 80 yards.

*It’s as if that one good year of Holland High football was a mirage. The Dutch lost to Grand Rapids Northview 55-14. Northview’s Brandon Lawrence ran for 200 yards and two TDs.

*Big senior running back Payton White ran 12 times for 161 yards and 3TDs as Constantine topped Parchment 42-20.

*Grand Haven’s pass-heavy attack was good eatin’ for Mona Shores junior Asantay Brown. He made three interceptions and caught what would prove to be the winning TD in the Sailors’ 21-14 victory.

*Another sophomore QB to watch — Coopersville’s Tucker Kloote was 9-of-14 for 249 yards and three TDS in a 37-22 win against Wyoming.

*How about Michael Kempton’s 20-yard average? He ran 13 times for 260 yards and four TDs for Edwardsburg, a 48-29 winner over South Haven.
