The 2017 MMCRU Middle School Football team finished strong. After a few bumps in the road early, the Royals smoothed things out. The Royals lost the first game of the season to a good Gehlen Catholic team 28-0. The second loss was to Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn 26-6. Then the Royals turned things around. They beat Alta-Aurelia 30-22, Unity Christian 28-6, Akron-Westfield 16-0, and Maple Valley-Anthon-Oto 40-0. The seventh grade B team finished the season 4-1-1. There is definitely a bright light at the end of the tunnel for the MMCRU Royals.
