UPDATE: Eaton Rapids opens up a 2,000-vote lead with just several hours left to vote


We have a barn-burner on our hands!

By Tuesday afternoon, about 7,000 votes had been cast to determine which opening-round Lansing-area high school football playoff game WVFN broadcasts Friday night. Eaton Rapids' game versus Kalamazoo Hackett held a narrow edge over DeWitt versus Tecumseh.

The other two games were well off pace.

Here's a recap of the four choices we have:

  • Tecumseh (5-4) at #2 DeWitt (9-0): The Panthers begin another run at a state title at home in this Division 3 tilt.
  • Kalamazoo Hackett (6-3) at Eaton Rapids (6-3): The Greyhounds host the combined team of Kalamazoo Hackett and Kalamazoo Christian in this Division 4 battle of 6-3 squads.
  • Onsted (6-3) at #4 Lansing Catholic (9-0): The undefeated Cougars begin their run at a state championship at Holt Junior High School, welcoming Onsted.
  • Williamston (7-2) at #2 Lansing Sexton (9-0): The Big Reds look to start out another deep postseason run with the CAAC's visiting Hornets.
