St. Mary lands new opponent for Friday

Gaylord St. Mary moved into the top five in the eight-player football rankings this week, picking up the No. 5 spot.

Now the Snowbirds (6-0) get to take on No. 4, as St. Mary added Pickford to its schedule at 7 p.m. Friday to fill a void from a Vestaburg cancellation earlier this week.

Pickford (5-1) remains an eight-player football powerhouse, with its only loss this season coming to No. 2-ranked Powers North Central, 20-14.

St. Mary, coming off a 48-47 win over Suttons Bay (5-1), hosts the Panthers, who have won double-digit games each of the previous three seasons and playing in last year’s Division 1 state final. The game is the Snowbirds’ Honor Game.

The Snowbirds and Panthers have played only four times in their history, each winning two. Their last meeting came in 2014, a 40-0 St. Mary victory.

Pickford was set to play Stephenson, but the 0-6 Eagles canceled their game. Vestaburg likewise canceled their contest with St. Mary, citing injuries.
