Bridgman’s Jayce Warren hits Mendon’s Chris Dupree during the first half of a game last month in Bridgman

Bridgman is facing an anticlimactic end to its impressive eight-man football season.

The Bees were set to play at Lawrence on Friday in a winner-take-all showdown for the Southwest Michigan Eight-Man Football League Tier 2 championship, but the game was canceled, and MHSAA.com lists Bridgman as a forfeit winner. Both teams were 4-0 in conference play.
