The Harper Creek football team remains unbeaten following its win over Hastings, and will head into its fifth game of the season as a state-ranked team.

Harper Creek made its debut on the Michigan Associated Press prep football poll released Tuesday, coming in at No. 8 in Division 3. The Beavers (4-0) will put their undefeated record on the line Friday when they visit Pennfield in a key Interstate Eight Conference contest.

St. Philip continued its winning streak in the Southern Michigan 8-Man Football League with a victory over Burr Oak, as the Fighting Tigers held on to the No. 4 spot in the Division 8 Player rankings. St. Philip (4-0) visits Camden-Frontier on Friday.

Quincy climbed one spot to No. 9 in Division 6 after the Orioles defeated Union City in a Big Eight Conference clash. Quincy (4-0) will host Reading on Friday.

Climax-Scotts rolled past North Adams-Jerome in Southern Central Athletic Association action to hang on to the No. 3 ranking in Division 8. The Panthers (4-0) will likely face their biggest test of the season when they host Bark River-Harris of the Upper Peninsula on Saturday.
