The Emeralds’ defense put pressure on the Miners all night long last Friday, when the team traveled to Negaunee for their season opener. Manistique held Negaunee to just 14 first downs and 341 total yards for the evening. Trailing by six with a chance to go ahead late in the game, an Emerald drive stalled at the Miners seven yard line. From there, Negaunee ran out the clock escaping with a 36-30 win.
