Friday Night Football: Lightning strikes for some, thunder rolls for others on Week 7
Live on NBC 25 News at 6 p.m.
In our Friday Night Football Game of the Week, Byron dominated Durand 52 to 6, but the best moment happened before the game even started. As a part of their Operation Freedom night, the players and fans saluted veterans and active military personnel for their sacrifices for the country. The players took the field with military members that they were playing for, while fellow veterans got a standing ovation as they processed across the track. A special moment that no one will ever forget. The Great American Rivalry series was also onhand, a group that goes around to different states over the course of the season celebrating high school football rivalries.
In one of the most anticipated matchups of the night, undefeated squads Corunna and Lake Fenton battled for the top of the G.A.C. Red. The Cavaliers took a lead into the locker room at the half, but the Blue Devils never wavered. A late safety in the fourth quarter made it 20-16, then they drove down the field and scored, winning 22-20, moving to 7-0.
In another anticipated matchup, Davison and Lapeer battled through rain and lightning delays into the second quarter, Davison sporting a 14-0 lead. But, that's when the lightning came back once again, and the game was postponed. The two teams will resume at 1 p.m. on Saturday in Lapeer.
