Ishpeming Hematites (36) VS Westwood Patriots (6) 10-28-11 High School Football


After having the last two weeks of the regular season off, the Ishpeming Hematites tonight hosted the cross town the rival Westwood Patriots for first game of the post season.

Westwood came flying out of the gate returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown to go up 6-0.  But that would be the only score for Westwood for the rest of the game as the Hematites put up 36 unanswered points.

The Hematites first took their lead with a 5 yard touchdown run by Derek Sloan to go up 8-6.  In the second quarter Ishpeming’s Tyrus Millimaki was able to add to the lead with a 60 yard punt return to put the Hematites well in control 22-6.

The half ended with the Patriots at the Ishpeming goal line threatening to score but the Hematites were able to keep Westwood out of the end-zone in a huge stop to cap the half.

The Ishpeming Hematites will play the winner of the West Iron County/Ironwood game next week on Friday night.  Time and location depends on the winner of that game.  It’ll be carried right here on 98.3FM WRUP.
