Owls’ defense is something special

OSCODA, Mich. — Earlier this week, the Oscoda Owls varsity football team was one of ten schools that were ranked in Division 7 by the Michigan Associated Press. The No. 9 ranked Owls have been lights out on offense, averaging 54.8 points per game. However, it’s their defense that’s been the spotlight within the first five weeks of the regular season.

In the first five weeks of the regular season, Oscoda is the only high school football team in the state of Michigan that hasn’t been scored on. They have outscored their opponents 274-0. Not only they haven’t allowed any points to their opponents, but they’ve only allowed three red-zone appearances and 380 total yards.

Friday, Oscoda (5-0) will look to bring the intensity to Houghton Lake (4-1) for a meeting with the Bobcats. The opening kickoff is at 7 p.m.
