GOODRICH: The Martians got back on track with a 35-17 win at Lake Fenton last Friday.

Tucker Reickel set the tone early with a one-yard touchdown plunge for the early lead, but Lake Fenton came right back by taking a kickoff to the house to tie the game.

However, Goodrich had an answer when Tyson Davis returned the ensuing kickoff 90 yards for the score to wrap up an exciting first quarter.

The score remained the same until the third frame when Jacob Wagner connected with Davis for a 31-yard score. The two hooked up once more, this time from 10 yards out for a 28-10 advantage. Lake Fenton put up a cosmetic touchdown late in the third on a 76-yard run before Reickel’s two-yard run was the only score in the final stanza.

Wagner went 17-of-24 for 261 yards and two touchdowns and Davis hauled in eight passes for 112 yards and two scores.

Goodrich, 2-1, hosts Pontiac Notre Dame Prep on Friday. — B.P.
