Grand Rapids Catholic Central Punches Ticket to Ford Field
Grand Rapids Catholic Central will be returning to Ford Field for another run at a state title in what has become a bit of an annual tradition for the Cougars.
Unity Christian proved to be no match for GRCC and the Cougars dominated from start to finish en route to a 56-17 victory.
Unity Christian went into the half with at least some modicum of hope as senior kicker Grant Balcer booted a huge 48-yard field goal as time expired and the ball crossed just past the middle of the crossbar into the wind.
Sophomore QB Joe Silveri and Junior wide receiver Jace Williams connected on several leaping catches on deep balls on an afternoon where Silveri rushed for 4 tds and passed for another. GRCC advances to the division 4 state championship game next Saturday against Detroit Country Day. One thing is for certain: Country Day will be in a fight with an absolute juggernaut.
