OTTAWA LAKE — Whiteford will make its ninth consecutive appearance in the state football playoffs this week when the Bobcats host Britton Deerfield.
The rematch was determined after the MHSAA offiicals held a coin flip to determine the No. 5 and No. 6 seeds in the Division 8 district that the Bobcats and Patriots are in. Summerfield won the flip and will be seeded fifth and play at Allen Park Cabrini. BD lost the flip and will take its 1-5 record to Whiteford.
The game will be at 7 p.m. Friday.
Tickets will be sold via an online pre-sale with tickets being offered to families of the football team first. Any unsold tickets by Wednesday will be offered to the community. More details on that sale will be announced later.
BCSN will be the streaming option for fans who cannot attend.
Whiteford has a 22-21 all-time playoff record. This will be the first time the Bobcats and Patriots meet in the football playoffs.
