Coloma Loses Tough Road Game In Edwardsburg
Coloma lost a tough battle against Edwardsburg on the Eddie's Homecoming. Edwardsburg took a quick 14-0 lead on two Devin Bywaters runs. Coloma came storming back with a Swihart run and a long Swihart pass to Colin Saltzman for 60 yards and a score. A third Devin Bywaters run extended the Edwardsburg lead but before halftime Derrik Allred scampered for 63 yards and a score to make the score 21-20 Edwardsburg. All the first half offense fireworks was followed up by only 14 points combines in the second half. Colin Saltzman broke another run for 23 yards and a touchdown. Devin Bywaters ran for his 4th touchdown of the night and put Edwardsburg up for good 29-26. Coloma had a good game offensively but couldn't find an answer for Devin Bywaters who ran for 159 yards and 4 scores. The game was back and forth between two of the better teams in the Lakeland conference. Coloma had 206 yards rushing and 123 yards in the air in a balanced attack. Not being able to convert a extra point or a two point conversion hurt the Comets. Next week Coloma takes on Buchanan at home in Coloma's homecoming. The kickoff is set for 7 pm.
