Martin’s non-league football showdown with unbeaten Brown City has been moved from Friday night to Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Clipper’s home turf.

The Green Devils will bring an impressive unit that sports statistics very similar to Martin’s. The homestanding Clippers have not lost a regular season game on the gridiron since switching from 11-man to eight-man football. Their only losses in the past three years were by forfeit because of Covid-19 and three times in playoffs against the eventual state champion.

Brown City last week defeated Suttons Bay 58-40. The Devils have outgunned their four opponents 214-72 and have not scored fewer than 40 points in any of their four victories.

Brown City is located about 80 miles north of Detroit in Sanilac and Lapeer counties.

Wayland and Hopkins, meanwhile, both will play Friday evening. The Wildcats (2-2) will travel to Kenowa Hills in search of their first O-K Gold Conference victory since 2020 and Hopkins will be at Comstock Park in search of its fourth straight victory.
