Time to bounce back

Lumen Christi has another tough test in Coldwater one week after loss to Marshall   By Mike Moore Staff Writer   Jackson – If there’s been any confidence lost, any second-guessing going on here, well, Herb Brogan certainly isn’t letting on.   In fact, as the Lumen Christi football coach looked back on last week’s game against Marshall, and forward to Friday night’s contest with Coldwater, there’s a growing sense the Titans will be as ready as ever to bounce back.   Then again, bouncing back in the regular season hasn’t been necessary for quite some time.   “It’s one game, and it’s not going to linger,” Brogan said of last Friday’s 21-14 loss to Marshall. It was the Titans first regular season setback since a Week 9 loss to Howell in 2012. “We had a great practice Monday. The guys understand the situation and understand we lost to a good football team. Now the question is whether or not we can beat another good football team.”   Marshall jumped out to a 21-0 lead in the game, then hand to hang on as Lumen scored two unanswered touchdowns, recovered an onside kick late in the fourth, and had a…

Goals still obtainable

League title and playoff push on the line as Michigan Center preps for Manchester   By Mike Moore Staff Writer   Michigan Center – The first week was somewhat lopsided, followed by a one-point loss in Week 2. The walls could have caved in, a white towel possibly thrown. But Troy Allen and the Michigan Center football team held firm, rallied past Napoleon 41-26, handled its business against East Jackson (42-0) and then pulled out a huge, 41-24 victory last week against Addison. From 0-2 and in the lights being turned out to 3-2 and “every goal we set before the season still in front of us,” as Allen put it. Now comes Manchester, a 4-1 squad riding a four-game win streak with an offense scoring at will. “It’s a huge game for us,” Allen said simply. “We know we’re young, and we dropped a couple early games, but we’re in a position now where if we want a conference title and a possible playoff berth, these are games we have to win. We’re in must-win situation now.” After falling to Clinton 20-19 in the season opener, Manchester has wins against Addison, Hanover-Horton, Grass Lake and East Jackson in games the…
