CHARLEVOIX — A swarm of Charlevoix defenders shut down Boyne City’s last-second run inside the 5-yard line to preserve an 18-14 victory.

The win improves the Rayders to 2-0 for just the second time since 2009.

The Ramblers’ final play turned from a pass into a scramble because of Wyatt Putman’s blanket coverage.

Cole Wright completed 11 of 14 passes for 72 yards and a touchdown, also scoring on a 3-yard TD run. Jacob Mueller caught four passes for 40 yards, a TD and a 2-point conversion.

Dimitrii Bell led the Rayder defense with 12 tackles, and Luke Snyder added nine. Jake Snyder recorded a safety.

Bobby Hoth (37 yards), Pete Calcaterra (36) and Phon Nguyen (35) led Boyne in rushing. Hoth made 15 tackles and Josh Robinson 11.

Charlevoix (2-0) travels Friday to St. Ignace. Boyne City falls to 0-2 on the season and will travel to Cheboygan, Friday.
