‘Critical’ game as Lumen (2-2) and Marshall (2-2) meet at Albion College

By Mike Moore Staff Writer   Jackson — The winner and the loser will still have playoff hopes, still have four weeks of a regular season remaining with just about everything on the line.   But for the loser, well, the margin of error will be razor thin.   “And that’s why this is a critical game,” Lumen Christi football coach Herb Brogan said of his team’s tilt with Marshall on Friday night. “We’ve been 2-3 before and found our way into the playoffs, but still, whoever losses this game is going to be behind the eight-ball.”   Lumen, 2-2 following last weekend’s shutout of Northwest, takes on Marshall, also 2-2 and sneaking past Pennfield, Friday night at 7 p.m. at Albion College.   The game will also be broadcast on JTV this weekend.   Marshall is just 3-11 all-time against Lumen, and had lost nine meetings in a row entering last year. Then the Redhawks battled for a 21-14 victory.   “We’ve watched the film, and the thing that jumps out is how they run so many formations,” Redhawks coach Jason Stealy said. “They are good at what they do. We know it’s going to be a tough game…

Two goals for Jackson football team Friday night against Grand Ledge

By Mike Moore Staff Writer   The night has a two-pronged mission attached to it.   When the Jackson football team takes the field Friday at home against Grand Ledge, the chance at picking up a couple victories rests at the forefront.   The Vikings, at 2-2 through four weeks, desperately need a victory to keep their playoff hopes alive and well.   At the same time, the guys in orange and black will technically be the guys in pink.   “It’s our Pink Viking Project,” coach Scott Farley said of the game. “The kids will wear pink jerseys with a name of someone in their lives who has passed, survived or is currently fighting cancer. It’s something we take very seriously.”   Each player will don the name of a family member, a friend, or even someone from the community they will be dedicating the game to.   The jerseys will be sold, as will T-shirts to get into the game.   And all for a great cause.   “All money raised goes to the cancer patience assistance fund with Henry Ford Allegiance Foundation in Jackson,” Farley explained. “We’re trying to financially help supports local families.”   Farley said…

Spring Arbor’s Ashley Timmons selected NAIA National Women’s Soccer Player of the Week

  SPRING ARBOR, Mich. – Spring Arbor University goalkeeper Ashley Timmons (Toledo, OH / Lake HS) has been selected as the NAIA National Women’s Soccer Defensive Player of the Week, announced the national office on Tuesday.   It is the second consecutive week a member of the Cougars has been recognized with the national award after Aubrey Schierbeek received the honor last week.   Timmons finished with a career-high seven saves to help lead No. 1 ranked Spring Arbor past No. 8 Martin Methodist College 3-0 on Friday (9/16). Martin Methodist is one of the best attacking teams in the country and features one of the NAIA’s leading scorers, but Timmons and the Cougars were up to the task, holding the Redhawks scoreless.   “Ashley has been very solid in goal for us this season,” said head coach Jason Crist. “She is hard-nosed, sure-handed and vocal, all great qualities in a goalkeeper. Her performance against Martin Methodist was crucial in neutralizing one of the best attackers in the country so far this year.”   Timmons, who also earned her second Crossroads League Defensive Player of the Week honor this week, has registered four shutouts this season, and has allowed just…
