A 54-year-old Belding man was killed Friday night near Hastings when the vehicle he was driving left the roadway and struck a tree.
The final score was probably a little too close for comfort for the Belding Redskins, but in the end, it didn’t matter as the Redskins qualified for the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) football playoffs for the first time since 2007. The Redskins started the scoring and finished the game with a defensive stand with the Wyoming Wolves needing a two-point conversion for a victory.
