Lowell charges past FHC 48-7

Not sure of his club’s physche following a big win over Muskegon the previous week, Lowell football coach Noel Dean tested it early Friday night at Forest Hills Central.
He liked the response.
Lowell, in its first possession of the game was at risk of going three plays and a punt, instead Dean chose to to go for it on fourth and two. The Red Arrows picked up the needed yards and then proceeded to complete a 12-play, 83-yard drive to take a 7-0 lead. Tyler Shurlow completed the drive with a three-yard touchdown run.
It was the first of six first-half touchdown as Lowell raced to a 42-0 halftime en route to posting a 48-7 win. With the victory Lowell improved its record to 5-0. The Red Arrows will travel to East Grand Rapids on Friday.
Lowell increased its lead to 14-0 late in the first quarter when Jake Stephens returned a fumble 50 yards for a touchdown.
Lowell recorded four second-quarter touchdowns on a 21-yard pass from Shurlow to Josh Bearup; a nine-yard scoring pass to Josh Branagan and a three-yard run by Shurlow.
Lowell’s final score of the half came on a 17-yard pass-and-catch from Shurlow to Ben Bigham.
Ben Bigham capped the Red Arrow scoring with a 74-run by Bigham in the fourth quarter.
