The Chelsea freshman football team lost its opening game at Grand Rapids Northview on Aug. 26 by a score of 47-21.
Can Starkey threw for 250 yards and 3 touchdowns. Hunter Neff had over 150 receiving yards and a touchdown catch. Dane Zorn and Russell Timmerman also had touchdown receptions.
Defensively, Dion Mite and Nick Christian each had a sack and five tackles. Up front, Holden Monica and Nick Brough blocked well against a big and athletic Northview team.
“We didn’t come out very aggressive and Northview is an extremely physical freshman team, and our kids have not learned to play with intensity yet,” said Coach Dennis Strzyzewski.
“I thought we showed signs of what we can be,” he said, “Our kids will learn from this and continue to improve.”
Ilene Kathleen Thibeault of Chelsea, age 87, passed away at her home on Tuesday, Aug. 25, 2015.

Be sure to stop by the Chelsea Community Fair ice cream truck when you are over at the Miracle of Life barn.
It’s just outside the barn filled with baby animals and offers hard ice cream in a cup for $3.
There are six flavors to choose from and the truck is open from noon to 10 p.m. daily.
The ice cream truck was started by Earl Heller four years ago and the profits go back to the community.
It’s being manned by the 4-H Livestock judging group, the 4-H exchange group and the FCC Church.

The Chelsea Kiwanis Club and the Chelsea Community Fair Board are graciously donating all of their returnable cans at the 2015 Chelsea Community Fair to “Michael’s Cans for a Cause.”
Michael Hanna is a member of Troop 425 and all money collected from the can returns will go Scoutmaster Mark Schroeder, to help pay his medical bills.
If folks would like to help, they could do so by placing soda cans into one of the four white bins by the Kiwanis covered seating area by the Main Arena.
And please, eat at the Kiwanis hot dog trailer.
