County should be well represented at Ford Field
True, anything can happen in the next three rounds before the finals, but Kosmo just has a good feeling.
Already, you can all but pencil in Orchard Lake St. Mary's to be in the Division 3 state final against East Grand Rapids, barring a colossal upset. These teams are clearly the best in the state in Division 3 and something stunning would have to happen to prevent the matchup.
After beating Birmingham Brother Rice in last week's first round in a de facto state title game, odds are great Farmington Hills Harrison will make the finals in Division 2.
The Hawks will be solid favorites in their next three games and could be headed for a state finals game against Lowell.
In Division 1, Novi Detroit Catholic Central and Lake Orion have opportunities to be at Ford Field. As long as it keeps winning, Lake Orion will be at home up until the neutral-site semifinals, where either Macomb Dakota or Detroit Cass Tech will likely await. Catholic Central should beat Northville on Saturday, which should set up a fantastic regional final showdown with Canton, which has been the best team in the state in Division 1 thus far. However, the Shamrocks have the talent to beat Canton and get back to Ford Field.
Finally in Division 4, Birmingham Detroit Country Day has been ranked No. 1 in the state all season. The Yellowjackets face a stiff test vs. Detroit Crockett on Friday and then possible Marine City in a regional final. But Country Day has found ways to win all season and is well-equipped to get by these challenges and return to Ford Field.
