Three MAC Teams Can Clinch Playoffs in Week 6

By Nick Candela

It seems like it was just yesterday that we were kicking off the start of the 2019 MHSAA football season. Blink once, and here we are in week 6, with three of our Macomb Area Conference teams sitting undefeated, with a chance to clinch a playoff spot. In fact, this will be the last year that the “six wins and your’re in” format will be used to determine a playoff berth. However, that discussion is for a different time and a different place! The Macomb Area Conference impressed in the 2018 MHSAA football playoffs, entering 15 teams into the tournament. More impressive than the volume of teams playing for a title, was the success the MAC had in the tournament itself. The MAC brought home 5 District Titles (Chippewa Valley, Marine City, Port Huron Northern, Madison & St. Clair), 3 Regional Titles (Chippewa Valley, Marine City, Madison), 2 Finals appearances (Chippewa Valley & Madison) and of course a Division 1 MHSAA State Title (Chippewa Valley Big Reds).

In week 6, Chippewa Valley, St. Clair and Marine City will have a chance to punch their ticket to the 2019 MHSAA Playoffs with a win. Chippewa Valley (5-0. 3-0, MAC Red) has a MAC Crossover game with Warren Mott (4-1, 2-1, MAC White). Chippewa Valley is 4-1 vs Warren Mott in the last 5 years. The Saints from St. Clair (5-0, 3-0, MAC Silver) will host the Center Line Panthers (0-5, 0-3, MAC Bronze) this week. St. Clair defeated the Panthers 53-18 a year ago and has won 2 of the last 3 match ups vs Center Line. Marine City (5-0, 3-0, MAC Silver), who currently has the most Points For in the conference, will head to Clawson City Park to take on the Clawson Trojans (3-2, 3-0, MAC Bronze). Marine City is undefeated all time vs Clawson in the 8 games the two teams have played vs one another. All games will be played on Friday, October 4th, at 7:00 PM.
