The boys varsity football team won their first round of playoffs 32-6 against Port Huron Northern at home on Oct. 28. They will advance to play Grosse Pointe North at home this Friday Nov. 4.

“The game on Friday was all in all a game to prepare for North,” captain Logan Mico ‘17 said.

Port Huron Northern is not a strong program, so the team knew they wouldn’t have to do anything special to get the win, Mico said. The boys are more focused on the upcoming district championship against North.

“Now we have a chance at redemption. A shot to get the final laugh in the greatest rivalry in Southwest Michigan,” Mico said. It’s bigger than the rivalry, though.

“We will be ready this time around. This is more than just North against South, this is the playoffs and we aren’t going to let our season end this week.” Captain Andrew Sharp ‘17 said. The team has been working toward the goal of meeting North in the playoffs since the first game the teams played, which ultimately ended in a loss for the Blue Devils. A big motivation for the team is the fact that the upcoming game will be historic.

“This is the first time these two teams have ever met in the playoffs. We know what this game means and we are going to lay our hearts out on the field Friday.” Mico said. The fact that it is both a playoff and rivalry game leads to high tensions and a stronger work ethic from the team.

“We are going to assignment strong and more physical than we have ever been.” Sharp says. After the first loss, the team has had this goal in mind. Practices have been worth it due to the shot at redemption as well as a District Championship.

“We’re not ready for our season to be over and neither is North.” Mico said.

“The first game was a battle. This one will be a war.”
