Ishpeming Hematites (6) VS Traverse City St. Francis (14) 11-12-11 High School Football

On a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Traverse City today, the Ishpeming Hematites continued their playoff hopes playing against Traverse City St. Francis.  Unfortunately, the Hematites came up just short in a close defensive battle 14-6.

Ishpeming out gained Traverse City in the first half in all offensive categories but still found themselves down by a point 7-6 at half.  Traverse City was able to find the end-zone first by recovering an Ishpeming fumble.  The Hematites struck back just before half on an 80 yard drive.


In the second half Ishpeming found themselves moving the ball and coming close to the end-zone a few times but couldn’t hit pay dirt.  Once again, it was another Hematite fumble that Traverse City was able to capitalize on and add to their lead 14-6.  Getting the ball back the Hematites were just starting a comeback drive when St. Francis intercepted the ball that put the game away.

The Hematites had once again another successful season and look forward to next season.  Ishpeming boys and girls basketball starts up after Thanksgiving on Tuesday, November 29th when the Hematite girls take on Superior Central.  It’ll be carried right here on 98.3 WRUP FM.
