BEST WIN: Seaholm: The Maples have been very impressive as of late. They have scored 194 points in the last four weeks including a 42-6 win over Troy on Friday night. The Kinnie brothers, Kyle Robbins, and Jacob Vance were very good against the Colts. Seaholm has some big games coming up which should help them especially with the postseason looming in a few weeks.
TOUGH LOSS: Stoney Creek: The Cougars postseason hopes took a hit after Stoney Creek fell 38-28 at home on Friday night. The Cougars need to win out to make the postseason most likely. Oxford is in the same boat as well. Jayden McCarthy had four rushing touchdowns in the game. Stoney Creek has a tougher challenge ahead of them if they want to make the postseason.
TEAM THAT NEEDS A HUG: Oak Park: The Knights have had a ton of bad luck in the last two weeks. Oak Park has lost their last two games by a combined eight points including a 9-6 loss to North Farmington on Friday night. The Knights defense was solid all night but the offense had their struggles. Postseason hopes could be very interesting to watch going forward for Oak Park.
VALENTI RANT: West Bloomfield: The Lakers defense is a big concern heading into the final three weeks. They have allowed 30 points or more in three of the four weeks including a 44-36 loss to Clarkston on Friday night. They are without their linebackers in Kari Jackson and Montelle Johnson as they are out for the season with ACL and MCL injuries respectably. Bryce Rowe did not play against Clarkston. West Bloomfield needs to address their defense in the worst way if they want to have a deep postseason run.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME: Troy: The Colts have really struggled in the last three weeks. The defense has allowed 101 points in that stretch. The non conference schedule has really hurt Troy especially with the three losses. The schedule looks manageable but the postseason could be a question mark.
