BESSEMER - Ontonagon won its sixth straight game, but they got a battle from the host Speedboys in a 66-54 Copper Mountain Conference win Friday night.

The Gladiators haven't lost since they defeated their rivals, Ewen-Trout Creek, which is ranked fourth in the U.P. in Class D. Ontonagon is now over .500 at 9-8 overall and 7-5 in the conference.
