BRIDGMAN — Bridgman's eight-man football team may not have been able to participate in the Michigan High School Athletic Association playoffs, but the Bees still had plenty to play for on Saturday night.

The Bees hosted Vermontville Maple Valley on Saturday night in the championship round of a mini tournament that featured four eight-player schools with enrollments too large for the MHSAA playoffs, topping the Lions 41-30 to cap off the season.
