Fulton suffered its first loss of the season, but it took a team from another state to achieve the feat. Muskegon (Mich.) Catholic scored a touchdown in the first quarter, then held the host Steamers to a pair of Endi Qunaj field goals to hand Fulton a 7-6 loss Saturday.

The Fulton Steamers can picture themselves as playoff contenders in two months, and one thing they know: that version is going to have to improve upon the version that defeated Galena 31-12 on Friday night in the 2022 season opener for both teams.
