Negaunee Miners Face the Ishpeming Hematites
Perhaps the game of the season is coming up on Friday night in the Westwood gym. Fierce cross-town rivals the Negaunee Miners and the Ishpeming Hematites will face off against each other in the MHSAA Boys District Tournament Championship game.
Tip-off time is 7:00pm. Great Lakes Radio will broadcast the game on both Sunny 101.9 WKQS and on 98.3 WRUP.
The Hematites will send out the likes of Alex Briones, Tyrus Milimaki, Dylan Maki, Jordan Windahl, and Mike Hill, among others, against the regular-season Mid-Peninsula champion Negaunee Miners who feature Tyler Jandron, Zack Marshall, Tanner Uren, Brock Weaver, and Tyler Beaumont.
It will be a battle for supremacy and bragging rights. Negaunee has won both games in the regular season. Ishpeming will be trying to stop that streak and continue on to regional play. It’s “one and done” ….the loser goes home. The winner goes on to regional play in Escanaba next week. It will be a grudge match right from the opening tip-off. Both teams want to win very badly, both teams play very well, and both teams want to continue the season.
Friday night at 7:00pm in the Westwood gym it’s the Negaunee Miners against the Ishpeming Hematites. Don’t Miss it!
