COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - In Branch County high school sports, in Friday night football on the next to last weekend of the regular season, Coldwater finished its home schedule with the Cardinals losing their SMAC East matchup to Harper Creek 38-to-3. The visiting Beavers led 35-to-0 at halftime and cruised to their sixth straight win. Coldwater got on the board with Blaze Watson’s 25-yard field goal in the fourth quarter. Our Coldwater McDonald’s Player of the Game was junior running back Bryant Garrett, who led the Cardinal’s ground game, rushing for 74 yards on 15 carries. Coldwater slips to 1-and-5 in the division and 1-and-7 overall while Harper Creek is now 6-and-2 overall and headed to the state playoffs while improving their conference record to  6-and-0. The Cardinals wrap up the season next Friday night at Sturgis.

Elsewhere last night, in the Big Eight Conference, it was homecoming at Quincy, where the Orioles couldn’t handle Homer as the visiting Trojans won 58-to-14. Quincy’s record drops to 1-and-5 in league play and 2-and-6 overall. Also in the Big Eight, Union City travelled to Reading and gave the Rangers a battle before losing 36-to-30. Reading clinches the conference crown with an undefeated 7-and-0 league mark to go with their 7-and-1 overall record while the Chargers finish 4-and-3 in the conference and drop to 5-and-3 overall.

And the Bronson Vikings stay on track for a possible playoff berth with their homecoming victory last night, a 45-to-14 win over Stockbridge. Bronson is now 4-and-3 and needs a victory at home next Friday over Bath to advance to the second season. And in eight-man football, Tekonsha lost at home to Waldron 46-to-12.
