MOUNTAIN IRON — The Cherry High School football teams’ season came to a crashing end with a 27-0 Section 7-Nineman semifinal loss to Silver Bay Friday at the Mountain Iron-Buhl High School Field.

In actuality, it was the end of both teams' seasons due to COVID-19, but the Mariners left no doubt about the outcome, getting out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter.

The Mariners’ defense did the rest in the shutout victory over the Tigers.

Silver Bay’s first touchdown came on a 12-yard pass from Elijah Blanck to Luc Stadler, then Stadler scored on a 2-yard run.

In the second quarter, Carter Zabrocki had a 4-yard touchdown jaunt, then after a scoreless third quarter, Sully Tikkanen had a 1-yard plunge in the fourth quarter for the final points of the game.
