MANITOWOC, Wis (NBC 26) — The Manitowoc Lincoln Shipbuilders left on the SS Badger car ferry Wednesday afternoon to Muskegon, Mich., where they'll take on the Mona Shores High School football team Friday night. The game is called the "Battle for the Badger."

It's the first time the team took the ferry for a game in the program's history.

Lincoln High School Head Coach Greg Enz says it's an opportunity for the players to connect with other teams and build a rivalry. They'll arrive back home in Manitowoc on Saturday.
