Week Thirteen Thoughts.

Written Saturday November 18th at 4:35 PM

Harper Woods: The Pioneers had a big 35-24 win over Goodrich on Saturday afternoon. Harper Woods trailed 14-0 early but outscored the Martians 35-10 to close it out. Stephone Buford, Nate Rocheleau, Koby Taylor, Ramounty House, Jacob Oden, and Dakota Guerrant had monster games. The Pioneers have a tall task ahead of them when they play Grand Rapids South Christian next week.

Southfield Arts and Tech: The Warriors earned their first trip to the Division One State finals after overcoming West Bloomfield 40-35 on Saturday afternoon. Isiah Marshall had the winning touchdown run to send Southfield Arts and Tech to Ford Field. Matheis Davis had a big game for the Warriors scoring two touchdowns while Tashi Braceful was solid as well and the defense did just enough and Marshall played really well. Southfield Arts and Tech has a really tall task awaiting them with Belleville next week.

West Bloomfield: The Lakers had a really tough loss to Southfield Arts and Tech falling on the final play 40-35 on Saturday afternoon. The defense couldn’t get it done against Isiah Marshall which ended up being the difference. Brandon Davis-Swain had three big touchdowns while Rick Nance played really well along with Elijah Durham but the defense could not get that last stop and credit Southfield Arts and Tech, they made a great play. West Bloomfield loses Nance, Davis-Swain, among others but they have Kam Flowers, Elijah Durham, Jailen Allos and company coming back. The Lakers will be back next season.
