The Harper Creek Beavers started the 2018-2019 campaign with three road games, and all ending in defeat. They looked to change their fortunes with their first home game of the season.

There was a lot more at stake for the Beavers as they hosted the Mounties of Jackson Northwest, a team that they have not lost to since the Interstate 8 began over four years ago. History was surely on their side. With a young team and a full week after their last to the Marshall Redhawks, Harper Creek had a shot at ending their opening three-game skid.

Check out the recap of Friday's Game of the Night, including with all the scores in the area. Some of the highlights include a battle of the top two teams in the I-8, and the Lakeview Spartans battling Kalamazoo Central with a chance to lead the Southwest Michigan Athletic Conference's East Division.
