In the first week of the High School Football season, there can be two different scenarios. One could see very close contests and the other could see a dominant performance from one team.

At Pennfield Thursday night for our 2018 debut, we very much saw the latter, as Williamston was able to score early and often.

It is just one of seven opening contests that kicked off our season in the Battle Creek area. The two city schools in action Thursday saw sideline debuts for their head coaches. There's one more on the way Friday.

Other games in the area include perennial playoff teams making their early statements with convincing wins.

Don't forget that Thursday was just the first of two Game of the Night contests in Week 1.

Watch the video below for a recap of Thursday's Game of the Night and all the scores from the Battle Creek area.
