Jenison took a tough loss to the Mona Shores Sailors last Friday, September 22nd. The football team battled four quarters to a loss 42-7.

Jenison’s football team was looking to make an upset against the state-ranked Sailors. If they won, they would have been 4-1, putting them into direct contest with the Big Reds of Muskegon for the conference title.

The Sailors scored first, but the Wildcats came back quickly, scoring on the next drive when Enrique Gonzalez caught a pass from Kyle Nott and took it 58 yards for a touchdown.

Unfortunately, that was the last time the Wildcats would score all game. They had a few promising drives later, but they were called back due to penalties.

Talking to Coach Brian Mack, the line coach, after the game, he said that he was proud of the effort that the team put forward as a whole.

When asked how he thought the Sailor’s homecoming atmosphere affected the team he responded, “I don’t know how it affected the team, but I wonder.” For the coming week, Coach said that their focus is going to be on “sharpening the saw” and cleaning up the team’s execution.

The next game for the Wildcats is the Homecoming game this Friday, September 29th against the Reeths Puffer Rockets.
