The Ishpeming Hematites Prepare for a Rematch Against the West Iron County Wykons During Tonight’s District Final on WRUP 98.3

Marquette, MI – November 2, 2018 – Last week, during Round 1, the Ishpeming Hematites defeated the Gwinn Modeltowners 52-6. Winning their own game last week against Rogers City, 28-8, the West Iron County Wykons also advance to the District Final to meet the Ishpeming Hematites on the field for tonight’s game.
Facing off during week 7, the Wykons took one of their two regular season losses during game against our Ishpeming Hematites. Unlike most of the Hematites regular season games however, the battle against West Iron County was a low scoring game, overcoming the Wkyons just 14-0. In fact, the West Iron County Wykons were the only team to keep the Hematites from reaching over 20 points in a game all season. We expect to see more of that heavy defense in tonight’s game as the two set up for a rematch.
Mike and Bob will be live from Ishpeming’s football field for the District Final, broadcasting the game on WRUP 98.3.
