Morrice will play its first game on a new football field when it hosts Burton Madison at noon on Saturday. The Orioles won their first game of 8-man football, 30-24 over Carsonville-Port Sanilac. Then Ashley edged Morrice 14-12 in the Bears’ first and probably only 8-man game last Friday. When the game was scheduled, Ashley was coming off a 2013 season where the Bears’ roster started with just 17 players. It seemed Ashley might consider switching to 8-man football in 2015, but the Bears’ roster is up to 27 this fall under new coach Rick Weisbarth.
