DETROIT (WOOD) — Winning streaks eventually come to an end at some point.
Unfortunately for Muskegon, a lengthy one came with a state crown on the line.
The Big Reds’ 27-game winning streak was halted after a 41-25 loss to Detroit Martin Luther King in Saturday night’s Division 3 state championship game at Ford Field.
It was Muskegon’s first loss since Nov. 25, 2016, when the Big Reds fell to Orchard Lake Saint Mary’s in the state final.
“It hurts, and it should,” said Muskegon junior quarterback Cameron Martinez, who rushed for 211 yards on 37 carries and accounted for three touchdowns.
“We left it all on the field and we didn’t give up. We kept coming to the end, but it definitely was a great ride and memories I will cherish forever.”
