Incident stemmed from controversial finish at West Bloomfield/Stoney Creek football game.
The West Bloomfield High School student responsible for striking a 66-year-old Stoney Creek football coach on the field Friday night was charged with assault and battery Thursday morning, according to the Oakland County Sheriff's Office (OCSO).

The Highlanders beat the Cougars 35-0 in pink and white game.
Rochester Adams is playoff-bound for the 15th-straight season following the team's final regular season game Friday night. The Highlanders defeated Stoney Creek 35-0; Tony Annese scored all five touchdowns in the Crosstown Charity Bowl game. It's the 15th straight trip to the playoffs for the Highlanders. "Because of what's going on tonight, I think the kids put in a lot of effort because of all the important people here," Adams coach Tony Patritto said. The players, coaches, cheerleaders and bands were all wearing pink to support the New Day Foundation for Families.

More than 170 players and cheerleaders will be sporting pink in the second annual Charity Bowl between Stoney Creek and Adams.
The final game of the regular high school football season will be a special one in Rochester Hills. Stoney Creek will wear pink instead of blue and gold, and Adams will ditch their brown and gold to wear white during the 2011 CrossTown Charity Bowl on Friday night. The second annual Charity Bowl is now a community-wide event; last year Stoney Creek played Oxford in the special game. The Charity Bowl is truly a student-driven event, with participation from the teams, cheerleaders, bands and National Honor Society. Players and cheerleaders raise money to have the name of a friend or family member affected by cancer on the back of their jerseys or uniforms. But the players and cheerleaders are not the only participants in the Charity Bowl…

No convertibles, just umbrellas for halftime show.
Stoney Creek High School's 2011 homecoming court literally got their parade rained on at halftime on Friday night. The tradition of the students in formal dresses and suits being escorted around the field in convertibles was called off at the last minute because of the nasty weather during the game. However, an umbrella and a few layers later the boys and girls toughed it out and made it down to the field at halftime. The Cougars (1-5) lost to Southfield Lathrup (1-5) by a score of 7-14 in a game spent running the ball and trying to stay warm.
All four teams defeated in rainy night play.
Here's a roundup of Friday night football play in Rochester: Quarterback Brandon Arduino rushed for a Cougar touchdown as the first half came to a close to lift his team's spirits at halftime. The Cougars offense couldn't capitalize off turnovers or convert on crucial fourth down attempts in the second half. Both teams dropped passes and punts because of the slippery conditions, but in the end the Lathrup Chargers running game was too quick and relentless for the Cougars defense. Stoney Creek coach Calvin Gross declined comment after the game, but told his players he was "tired of losing." The Cougars (1-5) have lost five games in a row and play at Farmington (4-1) Friday at 7 p.m. The Cougars will end their season with games against …

The Cougars have played some tough opponents three weeks in a row and will look to snap their losing streak, drawing inspiration from the hype and alumni Friday night at 7 p.m. Adams (4-1) hosts the Oxford Wildcats (3-2) in their 2011 homecoming game.

Cougars' record is 1-1 after defeat on home turf on Thursday night.
Although the Stoney Creek Cougars managed only 7 points against Oak Park's 41-point showing on Thursday night, there were times when the game could have been considered a close one. Instead, the Cougars ended the night with a 1-1 record. Stoney Creek seemed destined to score in the first quarter until a bad snap led to a turnover, which put the team in a bind. Though they were trailing, the Cougars performed well in the first half — save for two turnovers — and scored right before the half to bring the score to a manageable 14-7. "At halftime I felt pretty good," Coach Calvin Gross said. Despite making major adjustments to defensive tactics in order to avoid more turnovers, the Cougars did not fare well in the third quarter and allowed two…

Stoney Creek has high hopes of improving from last season's 2-7 record.
The Stoney Creek High School Cougars are poised to strike this season with their large squad that combines size, strength, and jungle cat-like quickness. “I am looking forward to coaching them and taking them into battle on Friday nights,” said Calvin Gross, who is going into his 10th season as head coach of the Cougars. Stoney Creek kicks off its regular season at home at 7 tonight against Port Huron Northern. “We have had a good off-season with our weightlifting and speed training. The team is focused on being better than last season and building the foundation for our program to be successful in future seasons,” Gross said. The Cougars finished last season with a 2-7 record, falling short of the playoffs in a tough OAA White division…
