Since joining the 8-Man ranks of the Michigan High School Athletic Association, the St. Philip Fighting Tigers have had some tight battles with the Tekonsha Indians. Friday's meeting in Tekonsha was the seventh between the two squads, with the Tigers leading the series 5-1.

That lone blemish is still from on the minds of St. Philip, as it was the first time the Indians won in 13 meetings (11- and 8-man). It was also the Tigers' homecoming.

St. Philip had a victory on their mind to re-stake their claim in the series, and we had a phenomenal Game of the Night on 95.3 WBCK.

The contest in southern Calhoun County was just one of three Friday night contests involving Battle Creek schools to wrap up Week 1. Check out the video below for the recap of the game, and all the scores from the final night of season opening action.
