GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Two conference champions square off in the final regular-season game for both teams.
Muskegon Oakridge shared the West Michigan Conference with Montague and Whitehall, while Muskegon Catholic Central won the Lakes 8 Conference title.
The Eagles have won four straight games, including a 43-36 win over Ravenna, and have posted 17 straight winning seasons.
Muskegon Catholic Central is riding a six-game winning streak following its only loss of the season in Week 2 against West Catholic.
The Crusaders are in the state tournament for the third straight year and a win would provide momentum.
This is only the third meeting of all time between the two teams and first since 2016.
CALEDONIA (7-1) AT HUDSOVILLE (6-1); 7 P.M. FRIDAY
The Caledonia Fighting Scots have the opportunity to share the OK Red conference with a victory Friday night and a Rockford loss against Grand Haven.

The Fighting Scots rebounded with a 42-7 win last week against Jenison.
Hudsonville is fighting for a spot in the playoffs for the fourth straight year and a win would definitely help.

CEDAR SPRINGS (6-2) AT SOUTH CHRISTIAN (6-2); AT EAST KENTWOOD 7 P.M. FRIDAY
Both teams are 4-2 in conference play and are still in the hunt for a conference title but will need some help from first-place Catholic Central.
The Catholic Central Cougars are unbeaten in conference play and end the season against Kenowa Hills.
Cedar Springs nearly upset the state-ranked Cougars last week but suffered a 41-40 loss after a failed two-point conversion.
