Manistee Stuns Unbeaten Boyne City in District Opener

BOYNE CITY – The Manistee Chippewas fended off a late rally to upset previously unbeaten Boyne City in the opening round of Division 6 District play on Friday night.

The Chippewas held a 20-14 halftime lead, and extended that to 28-14 by the end of the third quarter, which was just enough to hold off the Ramblers’ comeback attempt in the fourth.

Manistee (7-3) will take on the winner of Saturday’s game between Elk Rapids and Gladstone in next week’s District Championship game.
