Coloma vs. Cassopolis: Battle of the Unbeatens

Coloma is 7-0.

Cassopolis is 7-0.

Both sit atop the Lakeland Conference.

And they play on Friday Night Football.

What a match-up in the Pizza Hut Spotlight Game of the Week.

Everything will be on the line when these two teams duke it out for the Lakeland Conference championship at Coloma High School.

The Comets know they will have their hands full. Cassopolis is the defending league champions and has won 17 consecutive games dating back to last season.

"They're a tremendous team," Coloma head coach Mark Eddy says. "They have a great running game---a triple-headed monster of a running attack. Coach Hubbard has his kids playing hard and it's going to be quite the challenge."

"We haven't had a bigger game than this," Comet running back Nick Mannino explains.

"Cass is good. Last year they put a little whooping on us. This year we're coming out, looking to run our offense and have our defense shut them down."

"The kids are upbeat," Eddy says. "We've been hoping for this one for a while. We were hoping things would fall into place to give us the opportunity to play for the conference championship."

"We knew it would have to go through Cass."

Game time in Coloma is 7:30. We will have full coverage of the game on Friday Night Football on Newscenter 16 at 11.
