Crosby-Ironton @ Pine City [WCMP AM 1350]
The Pine City Dragons played their third game of the season Friday night on 1350 AM WCMP.. The game was played with heavy hearts as the Dragons family lost one of their former players within the past week with the passing of 2012 graduate Derek Rootkie.
The dragons fell to the Rangers 54-22 after a long-fought battle.
<strong>Earlier from Friday</strong>
Dragons coach Jared Polzine was on the First Thing in the Morning Show with our Jesse Logan to talk about Derek and tonight’s game.
As far as the game goes, the Dragons will be colliding with the 2-0 Rangers who are ranked #10 in the state in Class AA.
Polzine said the team was able to be a lot looser and confident in practices this week, even though hearts have been heavy with the loss of Derek.
