Imlay City has had a rough go of it to open the season, suffering huge losses to Sandusky, 52-13, and Algonac, 41-7, and barely falling to Cros-Lex, 29-26. The Spartans will be looking for the opportunitytofinallyaddaWto the win column.

Unlike Imlay City, Armada has already notched a pair of wins this season, but has had very low-scoring games. Armada topped Clawson 16-0 to open the season and Yale, 12-0 in Week Three, but fell to league opponent Richmond, 17-7.

“Armada is much improved from last year, and it will be our first road game of the season, so we have to be ready for a change of atmosphere this week,” said Imlay City coach Steve Lestage.

Despite the losses, the Spartans have been able to keep the heart and fight in their games thus far and a road win against Armada could give them the morale the Spartans need to turn their season around. Quarterback Luke Forti has already put up 690 yards passing in the first three games of the season, including 366 yards against Algonac.

Imlay City faces off with Armada at 7 p.m. on Friday.
