Bay Port 63, Green Bay Southwest 7
Bay Port’s rushing attack couldn’t be stopped.
The Pirates ran for 373 yards and six touchdowns in a 63-7 rout of visiting Green Bay Southwest in a FRCC-North matchup.

“Bay Port provides so many challenges because they are so physically and technically dominant that they require you to play perfect in every aspect of the game,” Southwest co-head coach Aaron Van Eperen said. “Unfortunately, we weren’t able to sustain that over the entirety of the game. There were
some things to like early on offense, but we weren’t able to sustain it and keep up with what their offense was doing.”
