Traverse City Record-Eagle

Prep playoff showdowns


TC West (5-4) at Rockford (8-1), Friday, 7 p.m.

Rockford has ended Traverse City West’s season the last four times the Titans made the playoffs by a combined 147-63 score. The Powerhouse Rams have been West’s nemesis almost since the new TC school was started in 1997. Total, the Titans and Rams have locked horns six times in postseason, with Rockford owning a 6-0 record and 218-84 scoring advantage. TC West does go into the game with its offensive line largely intact — aside from the season-ending knee injury to Connor Hayes — which hasn’t been the case much of the season. Also, quarterback Jeff Turnquist turned in the season’s best passing game with 310 yards, but the status of banged-up receiver Zach McGuire will also be a factor.


Elk Rapids (6-3) at Boyne City (7-2), Friday, 7 p.m.

These teams are facing each other for the second time in three weeks, as the Ramblers claimed a 28-12 victory at the same site in Week Eight. This time around, however, Boyne could be without star quarterback Jay Redman, who was injured in last week’s loss to Grayling. Boyne had won seven straight before that setback. The Elks should come into this game prepared, as they’ve played quality teams with at least four victories for five straight weeks. These teams are in the same league, but it’s the first time they’ve played each other in the playoffs.

Lakeview (7-2) at Glen Lake (8-1), Friday, 7 p.m.

Lakeview comes in with four straight wins, but have only beaten one team with a record over .500 this season. The Wildcats have scored 35 or more in six of nine games, but Northwest Conference champion Glen Lake’s defense has allowed only one team all season to put up more than 14 points. The Lakers are seeking playoff victories in back-to-back campaigns for the first time since 2000-01.
