It’s the opening round of the MHSAA playoffs and our Catholic League Football Game of the Week coverage continues as the De La Salle Pilots take on the Birmingham Groves Falcons on the road.
De La Salle (5-4) had their three-game winning streak snapped last Friday against West Bloomfield as the Lakers held on for a 16-8 victory. Groves (7-2) checks into the state playoffs with their only blemishes coming against Oak Park in Week 4 and Woodhaven in Week 9.
The winner of this match-up will move on to the district final to take on the winner of Sterling Heights and Birmingham Seaholm. The contest is a rematch from last year’s Division 2 State Semi-Final which saw the Pilots win 28-0.
Pre-game coverage kicks off at 6:30 PM. Jeremy Otto and Chad Bush will bring you the call. Be sure to stay tuned after the game for the CHSL Drive Home Show. Brendan Johnson and Atif Lodhi will take a comprehensive look at games around the Catholic League and the state.
