Tigers, Lions Face off again in Playoff game
The time honored M-37 rivalry continues into the playoffs as Grant will travel to Newaygo for the pre-district Division 5 matchup. This Friday night at 7pm the two longtime nemeses will suit up once again with one of the schools moving on to face the winner of North Muskegon and Oakridge.
The Lions won round one two weeks ago taking the shine off Grant’s homecoming a favor they returned after the Tigers did the same last season.
The teams have met once before in the postseason when Newaygo took a 20-7 decision in 2012.
Reed City will host Grayling who have lost 3 games to teams with a combined record of 24-3
Chippewa Hills travel to Clare to face the Pioneer team they bested last year 32-27 before falling to the Coyotes in the district final.
If the Warriors and ‘Yotes survive round one it will be their 4th meeting in two years.
So far Reed City has won all 3 and has a 9 game streak over the boys from Remus.
Lakeview made it into the playoffs by running off 4 in a row for the privilege of facing the Montague Wildcats who are undefeated and averaging 52 points a game.
Kent City is also undefeated and will be hosting the Mohawks of Morley a team they shut out three weeks ago.
If the two undefeated teams meet in the final it would be a rematch of a grueling pre-district last year that saw the Wildcats outlast the Eagles 21-20.
See you Friday.
