Playoffs loom for area teams
Eight CSAA teams will play on this weekend, including 5 from the Gold.
Newaygo, in the postseason for the second straight year, will host cross conference rival Morley Stanwood in Division 6.
It’s been more than a decade since two area teams have gotten to week 10.
In D-8 Holton will travel south of Grand Rapids to take on the Martin Clippers from the SWAC-Lakeshore their first appearance in the tourney since 2007 and Tri County travels east to face last year’s state finals runner-up Saginaw Swan Valley as the Vikes end a playoff drought going back to 2004.
Kent City the Silver champ faces the SWAC-Lakeshore titleholder as they host the Saugatuck Indians.
Other CSAA schools moving on are Big Rapids who will repeat the trip they took to Alma last Friday hoping for a different result than the 55-12 drubbing the Pioneers laid on them, Chip Hills visits the Falcons of Freeland and Reed City will put their undefeated record on the line at home against the Huskies of Benzie Central.
Game details such as time and date will be announced Monday.
