Lansing-Area H.S. Football 1st Round Playoff Matchups
There are eighteen area teams that have qualified for the Michigan High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) football playoffs.
Sixteen of them are in the 11-Player playoffs with a pair of schools (Fulton and Morrice) making it in the 8-Player tournament.
Of the first round matchups, only two of them feature two local teams playing each other (Bath at P-W in Division 7, Olivet at Portland in Division 5). So it's theoretically possible that as few as two area teams still alive after round 1, but as many as 16 teams still left if all of them win.
So, here are the first round matchups featuring Lansing-area teams (all games are Friday night at 7:00pm):
Hartland (6-3) at Holt (6-3)
Grand Ledge (7-2) at Brighton (8-1)
East Lansing (6-3) at Battle Creek Central (7-2)
Sturgis (5-4) at Mason (9-0)
Haslett (6-3) at Linden (5-4)
Cadillac (5-4) at DeWitt (6-3)
Chelsea (5-4) at Charlotte (8-1)
Olivet (7-2) at Portland (8-1)
Williamston (7-2) at Corunna (7-2)
Ovid-Elsie (7-2) at Almont (6-3)
Lansing Catholic (4-5) at Durand (9-0)
Bath (6-3) at Pewamo-Westphalia (5-4)
Lake City (5-4) at Ithaca (8-1)
Carson City-Crystal (8-1) at Fowler (8-1)
8-PLAYER - DIVISION 1
Fulton (7-2) at Breckenridge (7-2)
8-PLAYER - DIVISION 2
Morrice (7-2) at Peck (7-2)
