Fennville falls at Montague

MONTAGUE (WZZM) -- The Montague Wildcats could win a seventh straight district title with a win over the Fennville Blackhawks.

Wildcat nation headed into the district title game with heavy hearts, as Montague quarterback Travis Cockerill's mother, Kristi, lost her year-long battle with cancer earlier in the week.

Cockerill did suit up for the Wildcats, and he would help put them on the board first. Cockerill would give it to Steven Murdock would found his way to the endzone making it 7-0 Montague.

The Wildcats would extend their lead after Cockerill handed it off to Anthony Root who broke a couple of tackles before finding pay dirt. That made it 14-0.

In the second quarter Montague took a page out of Mark Dantonio's playbook. Wyatt Ford set up for a field goal, but it was a fake. Anthony Root aired it out to Brandon Moore for the touchdown. That made it 21-0 Montague.
