Round Two Matchups For 8 Mid-Michigan HS Football Teams
High School Football Playoffs are rolling into the second round, and there are 8 area teams that are fighting to keep their Ford Field dreams alive.
The first round of the playoffs brought a lot of controversy after the selection process was changed by the MHSAA. The good thing about a tournament though is that the teams that are supposed to be there, usually end up advancing.
That's what we see in the second round of the playoffs coming this weekend. Many of the teams that barely made it into the playoffs have made an early exit. That trend will continue as the field gets cut in half again this weekend.
Check out the second round matchups below, and if you are not able to make it to the game, you can watch the MHSAA live stream of select games here.
(8-2) at Grand Blanc (10-0) @ Goodrich High School - Friday at 7pm
Grand Blanc is hoping to keep their undefeated season going, but for the second week in a row, they will be playing at Goodrich High School. The game is still going to feel like a home game for the Bobcats, and they are the favorites to advance.
Bay City Western (8-2) @ Traverse City Central (9-1) @ Thirlby Field in Traverse City - Friday at 7pm.
Bay City Western won a thriller over Midland Dow in round one and things aren't going to get any easier against TC Central.
(9-1) at Lake Fenton (9-1) @ Lake Fenton High School - Friday at 7pm.
Both Freeland and Lake Fenton are coming off of big first round wins. Both teams are 9-1 and this is one of those games where you hate to see either teams season end. This is one of the most evenly matched games in round 2, but Lake Fenton is a slight favorite because of the home field advantage.
