Montague opens football state title defense with rout of Central Montcalm

The reigning Division 6 champions dominate from the start in playoff opener.

MONTAGUE — Townsend Stadium is typically packed for football games this time of year.

The cold weather and drizzling rain seemed to convince some fans to watch from home, as the Montague Wildcats demonstrated their playoff pedigree with a convincing 41-7 victory over Central Montcalm Friday night.

The reigning Division 6 state champions were dominant from start to finish in this playing opener, scoring six touchdowns and racking up 338 total yards on offense. Defensively, the Wildcats held the Hornets to 277 total yards and one touchdown in a lopsided victory.


Montague will travel to face Reed City in the district final next week. The Coyotes soundly defeated Manistee in their first-round matchup, 36-14, to punch their ticket to the district finals.

The Coyotes could pose a challenge for the Wildcats as they recently defeated Whitehall, 38-28. The Vikings were responsible for Montague’s lone West Michigan Conference defeat, 34-14, as those two teams shared the league title with Oakridge.
