Finals prediction: North Muskegon vs. Fruitport Calvary Christian

The Bucs will enjoy a bye into the semifinal before meeting their O-K Black opponent in Jenison or GR Union. Should the Bucs take care of business, a marquee matchup with No. 3 Mona Shores will likely be looming in the final.

Fruitport is set to run through the opening and semifinal rounds to the title game, while No. 15 Spring Lake’s biggest obstacle will be No. 17 Reeths-Puffer, who the Lakers jumped in the final coaches’ poll of the season. A rivalry match in the district final guarantees an exciting game.

The Warriors, Crusaders and Eagles all occupy the same district bracket. Unfortunately, so does No. 9 North Muskegon. Ranked No. 16, Muskegon Catholic Central has the best shot at the Norse, likely in the semifinal round. A win there would set up the Crusaders nicely for a run into the regional.
