Buchanan Beats Coloma On Homecoming Night
Coloma took a tough loss Friday night to Buchanan 27-6. The Coloma offense was backed up all night and could not find a rhythm. The one big offensive play was when QB Sam Swihart faked a handoff and took the ball 46 yards for a touchdown. Buchanan moved the ball well all night, amassing 329 yards total offense to Coloma's 158. On a cold and wet October night, both teams favored the running game over the passing attack, until the second quarter when both teams started airing it out. The second half only saw Buchanan score one more touchdown to finish out the scoring. Coloma has two more games this season, on the road against Bridgman and Senior Night against Cassopolis. Coloma has to win both games to have a shot at the playoffs this season. A 5-4 record is not a sure thing to keep playing into October, but with a tougher schedule and a few big wins the Comets could make their case.
