Boys Lacrosse Regional Preview.
Written Sunday May 14th at 11:00 PM
Here is my preview of the boys lacrosse regional projections.
Region 4 at South Lyon East
Brighton vs. FARMINGTON UNITED
BIRMINGHAM UNITED vs. Howell
South Lyon (South Lyon East) vs. Novi
Livonia Stevenson vs. Northville
EARLY PICKS: Give me the Brighton Bulldogs to move on to the quarterfinals but Birmingham United will have a very strong say and could upset Brighton in the regional semifinals if they are not careful.
Region 5 at Troy Athens
Detroit Catholic Central vs. Bye
TROY ATHENS (AVONDALE) vs. Detroit Cass Tech
M-1 (ROYAL OAK/BERKLEY) vs. Utica Ford II (Sterling Heights Stevenson)
Detroit University Detroit Jesuit vs. Chippewa Valley
EARLY PICKS: Can’t go against the Shamrocks, sorry rest of the field.
Region 6 at Romeo
Macomb L’Anse Creuse North vs. St. Clair
Birmingham Brother Rice vs. Macomb L’Anse Creuse North/St. Clair
Macomb Dakota vs. ROCHESTER
Port Huron vs. Utica Eisenhower (Utica)
Romeo vs. New Baltimore Anchor Bay
EARLY PICKS: The Warriors are motivated enough said although Romeo might have the best chance out of anyone in this regional that can give Birmingham Brother Rice at least some issues.
Region 7 at Bloomfield Hills
LAKE ORION vs. Waterford (Waterford Kettering/Waterford Mott)
OXFORD vs. TROY
Walled Lake (Walled Lake Northern/Walled Lake Western/Walled Lake Central) vs. WEST BLOOMFIELD
BLOOMFIELD HILLS vs. Huron Valley (Lakeland/Milford)
EARLY PICKS: This looks like a Dragons vs Blackhawks regional final. Lake Orion will be too much.
Region 8 at Clarkston
CLARKSTON vs. Bay City Central (Freeland, Frankenmuth)
Ortonville Brandon (Holly) vs. Davison
Grand Blanc vs. Lapeer
Saginaw Heritage vs. Swartz Creek (Flushing)
EARLY PICKS: No one is touching the Wolves in this regional. The Bobcats are the closest to having a chance but too much Wolves.
Region 14 at Pontiac Notre Dame Prep
Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kinswood vs. Bye
ADAMS vs. Pontiac Notre Dame Prep
Orchard Lake St. Mary’s vs. Madison Heights Bishop Foley (Clawson, Macomb Lutheran North)
STONEY CREEK vs. Royal Oak Shrine (Rochester Lutheran Northwest, Waterford Our Lady of the Lakes, Clarkston Everest)
EARLY PICKS: The Cranes are the early favorite but do not by any means count out the Cougars or the Highlanders. Adams could beat Bloomfield Hills Cranbrook Kingswood. I see Stoney Creek getting to the district final and beating Adams who I think will upset the Cranes in the regional semifinals.
