The varsity football team opened their 2016 campaign traveling over the bridge to St. Ignace on Friday night.

Freshman Nathaniel Wandrie started the season off with a kick that dropped behind the Saints’ initial lines of blockers and in front of their return formation. The Bulldogs recovered the ball in Saints territory for their only full possession across the 50-yard line.
