The Allegan Education Foundation and Allegan General Hospital teamed up for their third annual C.O.D.E. Orange event on Friday, Oct. 10, in an East Division match-up between Allegan (0-7) and  the Otsego Bulldogs (3-4) who were the eventual 48-28 victors.
The C.O.D.E. Orange event, which stands for “Community On Deck for Education,” raises funds for teacher mini-grants and student scholarships.
The hospital sponsored the T-shirt sale as well as the athletic trainer for all sports and the many health services it provides the area. Together the two are “investing in the health and education of the community.”
At the conclusion of the game, there were still some football jerseys for purchase at $150 each. Anyone interested in one should contact the Educational Foundation by email at www.alleganed@gmail.com.
The contest was for a good cause but the Bulldogs did not let the atmosphere distract them from their cause, which was to win the game.
 “This was a good win for us,” Otsego coach John Kubiak said. “With our record and losing some of those close games, we needed this. It was nice to see the way the guys bounced back. Both (A.J.) Atwater and (Kyle) Kanwischer played hard. It was a good offensive effort for us, but we still need to tackle better."
