Division 3 Round 2 Overview: The expected state champions, Muskegon's road became easier with top 15 program, East Grand Rapids being eliminated by Cedar Springs.

Region 1:

District 1 - Zeeland West at #2 Muskegon (Grand Haven): The game was moved to Grand Haven due to weather. Fortunately for Muskegon their athletes are better utilized on turf, this wouldn't be that close to begin.

Prediction: Muskegon 49-10

District 2 - Cedar Springs at DeWitt: Cedar Springs has impressively beaten, Lowell and East Grand Rapids this season. DeWitt will be another favored opponent to a lot of people, but not us.

Prediction: Cedar Springs 22-19

Region 2:

District 1 - Lakeshore at Harper Creek: BCHC has quietly gone about their business this year, but seems to be getting stronger as they defeated conference rival Coldwater this past week who was fresh off an upset over Traverse City West. Lakeshore also beat a rival in St. Joseph.

Prediction: Harper Creek 14-10

District 1 - Haslett at East Lansing: The CAAC Conference puts East Lansing in Blue (top tier) and Haslett in the Red (lower tier) for a reason.

Prediction: East Lansing 24-7

Region 3:

District 1 - Redford Thurston at Divine Child: Theo Day loses one of his top targets in Quinn Blair for the season, but the Falcons are too deep and strong in trenches to lose this game.

Prediction: Divine Child 24-13

Division 2 - Riverview at Gibraltar Carlson: This Downriver-area game should be a huge draw to local fans who are looking to see the top 2 teams in the area. Both have played insanely great this year and this should be a very tight game.

Prediction: Gibraltar Carlson 23-21

Region 4:

District 1 - Ortonville-Brandon at Linden: Linden and Ortonville-Brandon will meet again after playing in the same conference, Flint Metro League. Linden won their week 7 meeting, 53-0.

Prediction: Linden 35-10

District 2 - Farmington Hills Harrison at Warren Woods-Tower: WWT will host FHH in a nice District Final. Harrison's balance on offense will dictate the game.

Prediction: Harrison 35-20
