The Glen Lake receiver had three catches for 56 yards against Traverse City St. Francis. Glen Lake fell to 2-4 overall and 1-3 in Northern Football League (NFL) Friday night with a 45-0 loss to Traverse City St. Francis.

The Gladiators scored less than a minute into the first quarter — going 65 yards in two plays — and never really looked back, scoring twice more in the quarter and one time in the second period for a 38-0 halftime advantage.

“They are a great team with a great running game and it showed,” Laker coach Jerry Angers said. “We continue to work hard each week.”

Glen Lake led St. Francis in net yards passing 114 to 60 and time of possession 25:21 to 22:39. But the Glads had an advantage on the ground, going 380 yards on 38 carries.

St. Francis was also plus-2 in the turnover department, recovering two Laker fumbles.

Coach Angers has had to move some of his players from one position to another assignment to cope with player injuries and disciplinary issues.

Duke Angers, who at 6’1” and 230 looks more like a linebacker than a quarterback, was 7 of 23 in the air, which included one throw completed for 39 yards.

The younger Angers also led his team on the defensive side of the ball with nine tackles — two for a Gladiator loss. Sophomore Ryan Nadlicki recorded eight pull downs.

The Lakers host Kingsley Friday and will likely do so with a few less players, out due to injury.

Jonah Wilson is out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury. Hunter Gushurst is banged up and Andrew Lindeman is questionable this week due to injury.

The Stags, 4-3 overall and 2-2 in the NFL, are coming off at 35-14 loss at Suttons Bay.

Coach Jason Leonard worked previously with Angers at Traverse City West and his team participated in preseason activities with the Lakers.

At halftime during Friday’s home contest, Glen Lake’s 1994 state championship football team, will be honored.
