Two years ago, East and Cranbrook met in the state final. After the Pioneers built a first-half lead, the Cranes came soaring back in the second half to force overtime, where they eventually won the state title.
Wednesday night in Grand Ledge, the two teams met again, with a berth in the state finals on the line. This time, East built an early lead and never looked back, defeating Cranbrook 24-6. The Pioneers will face Marian in the state final game Saturday at 2pm at Novi High School.
It's possible someone from Marian could be reading this article to get a read on the East Team. So here's a scoring summary: One of the Pioneers scored an early goal. Then two other Pioneers scored before Cranbrook cut the lead to 3-1. Many more Pioneers scored after that and East had a 15-3 lead at halftime.
In the second half, some of those same Pioneers scored again, along with a few more, to account for the final 18-goal margin of victory. Also, one of the Pioneers was really good at something all game long.
