Blitz Preview – Week 9

The regular season comes to a close on Friday night in high school football.

GAME OF THE WEEK -  NORTH MUSKEGON (5-3) AT ORCHARD VIEW (8-0)

North Muskegon is projected to make the postseason for a third straight season, even with if they lose Friday night. But the Norseman have bigger plans than backing in at 5-4.

"Hoping to see a win," senior linebacker Joe Tarrant said. "Hopefully we can get a home playoff game if we win."

For Orchard View, it is a chance to not only keep momentum heading into the postseason but try to earn home field advantage and have a 9-0 regular season for the first time in 14 years.

"We would go down in the history books as the first team since 2005 to go 9-0," senior running back and defensive back Alex Andrews said.

BLITZ BATTLE - PORTLAND (7-1) AT MONTAGUE (6-2)

Portland looks to rebound from its first loss of the season last week to Mason (8-0).

The Raiders scored the game's final 14 points in Week 9 last season to beat Montague, 27-20.

Both teams made runs to the state finals at Ford Field last November.

The Wildcats (6-2) are hoping to earn a home game or two in the playoffs with a win.
