The West Michigan Ironmen ended their season on a sour note on Saturday night in the American Arena League semifinals.
The Roughriders advanced to the AAL championship game, which will be played in two weeks.
West Michigan posted a 4-1 regular season record plus an exhibition victory against the Muskegon Mustangs, then opened the playoffs last weekend with an easy win over the Indianapolis Enforcers.
The Ironmen trailed 12-0 at the end of the first quarter, 32-6 at halftime and 39-6 heading into the final stanza.
West Michigan’s lone touchdown was scored on a pass from Michael Whitley to Daryl Gooden.
