Pickford, Gaylord St. Mary Schedule Week 7 Game

GAYLORD – Due to a pair of cancellations by opponents, Pickford announced Wednesday evening that it has scheduled a Week 7 game at Gaylord St. Mary on Friday, setting up a non-conference meeting of two of the top five 8-player programs in the state.

Fourth-ranked Pickford (5-1) was originally scheduled to travel to Stephenson Saturday afternoon prior to the Eagles canceling the league crossover, while fifth-ranked St. Mary (6-0) was set to host Vestaburg on Friday. Vestaburg informed the St. Mary coaching staff earlier this week that they would be unable to field a varsity team in Week 7 due to injuries. The Wolverines also canceled their JV program last week.

St. Mary is coming off a thrilling 48-47 defeat of previously unbeaten Suttons Bay while Pickford handed conference foe Cedarville a 64-20 loss last week.

This marks the first meeting between the two since 2014. St. Mary won the previous matchup 40-20 when both teams were still fielding 11-player programs.

Friday’s kickoff is slated for 7 p.m.
