Beverly Hills- Country Day improves to 4-2 with a dominating 26-6 performance over Muskegon Heights Saturday afternoon. Muskegon used their team speed to keep the game close and scoreless after one quarter of play.

In the second quarter Country Day took the lead off of a 62 yard TD pass from Josh Harris to Jihad Mims. Michigan State commit, Bennie Fowler drew triple coverage and left Mims one-on-one, and Mims made Muskegon pay for it. The Yellowjackets scored again with 1:06 till halftime to take a 12-0 lead. The second score came off of another Harris pass, this time to his big brother Allen Harris.

Josh Harris struck again in the third quarter when he hit Jason Ray for a TD pass and a 18-0 lead. Both teams scored added a score in the fourth quarter making the final 26-6.


Country Day- while CD doesn't have many bodies on their roster they are full of depth. The Yellowjackets constantly shuffle in new bodies on both sides of the ball. The CD defense is starting to look good and they do a solid job of tackling in the open field.

Muskegon Heights- Muskegon has a young coaching staff that seems to be heading in the right direction, their 1-5 record is deceiving because three of those losses are against
6-0 teams. Heights has a young nucleus with plenty of team speed.
Game MVP- Josh Harris, CD- the sophomore is making good decisions and is starting to play with some confidence, he is comfortable in the pocket and keeps his eyes looking downfield. He threw 3 TD passes with very few incompletions.

Allan Harris, CD- while Fowler is CD's big named receiver, the 6-0 senior is just as reliable. He came up big on both sides of the ball particularly on his TD grab where he was able to get his feet down. Defensively he made a big play with Muskegon faced a 3rd-and-3 and Harris just blew up a bubble screen.

Kenny Knight, CD- the 6-3 sophomore safety is playing more and more and he's producing back there. He sees the field good as well as being able to come up and help stop the run.

Bobby White, MH- White is a very shifty back with a ton of speed. While CD was able to contain him he was very close to breaking open some big plays.

Keith Taylor, MH- an athletic 6-3/190 pound junior safety. Taylor has the speed and size to cover allot of space downfield. Even though he's only a junior he was one of the Tiger's lone positive vocal leaders.
