PREVIEW: Schoolcraft & Galesburg-Augusta Look For 2nd Win

9-8 football

Listen live online Friday at 7 p.m. on the Slocum Sports Network as the Schoolcraft Eagles host the Galesburg-Augusta Rams for week three of the high school football season.   Both are members of the Southwestern Athletic Conference, although unlike the previous two seasons, they are now in different divisions.   With the dissolution of the Central division, Schoolcraft plays in the Valley division and Galesburg-Augusta plays in the Lakeshore division.

Both squads have started the season 1-1.  Schoolcraft opened with a 41-0 shellacking of Fennville, then suffered their first regular season loss since 2014 in a 27-14 defeat at Berrien Springs.   Galesburg-Augusta dropped their opener 24-7 at Union City, but bounced back in their home debut on a 27-6 victory over New Buffalo.

Schoolcraft advanced to the postseason in eight consecutive seasons.   Nine seasons ago, the Eagles began their series with the Rams and Schoolcraft has won all nine meetings convincingly.  Galesburg-Augusta’s lone win against Schoolcraft came in their one other meeting back in the 1990 postseason.    The Rams have built up momentum for their program, fresh off last season’s 5-4 campaign for their first winning season since 2000.

Listen live online to Friday’s game on the Slocum Sports Network with kickoff set for 7 p.m. from Roy Davis Field in Schoolcraft.
