Golden goal: In a meeting of top-four teams in Division 1, No. 3 Northville downed reigning MHSAA champion Novi 1-0 on Thursday. The Wildcats actually have won the last two Division 1 championships – but dropped from No. 4 to No. 5 in this week’s state coaches rankings. (Mlive Detroit)
Telling tie: Williamston and Hudsonville Unity Christian met in both the 2008 and 2010 Division 3 Finals, with Unity Christian winning both games. But the Hornets managed a 1-1 tie against the Crusaders in a home game Friday night. Unity Christian is ranked No. 2 and Williamston No. 3. (Lansing State Journal)
Streak broken: Stevensville Lakeshore came close to breaking Mattawan’s impressive two-season run at last weekend’s Portage Invitational. The Lancers didn’t end Mattawan’s 38-game winning streak Saturday at the Wildcat Invitational – that credit goes to Portage Central – but did down Mattawan 4-3 in eight innings in the tournament championship game. Mattawan is ranked No. 1 in Division 1 and Lakeshore is No. 1 in Division 2. (Kalamazoo Gazette)
Power play: Three of the top five teams in Division 3 competed at Saturday’s Allegan Invitational, with Division 3 No. 1 Detroit Country Day tying No. 3-ranked East Grand Rapids for first place. Host Allegan, ranked No. 5 in Division 3, came in third. (Grand Rapids Press)
Winners crowned: The Michigan Interscholastic High School Bowling Coaches Association and Detroit Free Press named Wyoming Kelloggsville’s Jessica Lubbers and Davison’s Tylor Greene the Miss and Mr. Bowling winners for this season.
