Greenville Yellow Jackets down Northview

GREENVILLE (WZZM) -- Two teams off to fine starts met at Black Field as the 4-0 Greenville Yellow Jackets hosted the 3-1 Northview Wildcats.

The Jackets found their home in the end zone to start the scoring.  Jackets ran their misdirection to perfection.  Quarterback Zach Burris drew the defense to one side and sprinted down the other.  Ten yard touchdown for the senior making it 7-0 Greenville.

Later in the 1st it was more Yellow Jackets.  Sean O'Brien off the right side and the Wildcats couldn't catch him.  He hit the sidelines breaking a 61 yard touchdown run.  It was all Yellow Jackets at 14-0.

Northview would hit on a field goal in the 2nd but Greenville added another score just before the half.

In the end the Jackets rolled 35-10.

There are only two rules: All donuts must be eaten in the “Donut Zones” and if you toss your cookies- you’re DQ’d. The race has wellmarked roads, assisted crossings, sag support, awards, prizes and is tons of fun for families, individuals and even exper-ienced cyclists. The race begins and ends at Klackle Orchards Family Fun Farm west of Greenville. The course follows lightly used rural roads and a paved scenic bike trail. Are you a good enough cyclist and donut eater to go into negative time? Competitive cyclists- what’s your strategy?

UPDATE: Police talking to two juveniles in connection to vandalism at St. Paul's Episcopal

GREENVILLE, Mich. (WZZM)-- Greenville police say they have two juveniles they are talking to about the vandalism at St. Paul's Episcopal Church.

Last week, a parishioner at the church discovered extensive vandalism inside the church.

The downstairs food pantry, which is used to feed the poor twice a week, was raided. The vandals left refrigerators open and the food inside spoiled. Other goods were opened and thrown on the floor and walls downstairs. The priest's office was ransacked and a copy machine was destroyed.

Police tell WZZM 13 News right now they are just talking to the juveniles and no arrests have been made.  An anonymous tipster told police about the young suspects.
