St. Joseph’s Griffin Shinrock is called for a facemask penalty after Lakeshore’s Grant Ruddell returns an interception during the first half of their Oct. 9 game at Lakeshore High School.

St. Joseph and Lakeshore are in opposite brackets of their Division 3 football district and are expected to eventually meet again for the title.

Coach Andrew Pratley's Bears are 5-1 and seeded No. 1 in the district, edging out coach Denny Dock's Lancers (4-2) by the narrowest (1.33 points) of margins.
