City Championship Game

18 Oct

Here it is, the biggest game in the PSL this season will be decided at the home field of the Detroit Lion, Ford Field.  Two teams coming off impressive wins last week at the City Semi-finals will decide the outcome of the City Championship.  The Crusaders of Martin Luther King, coming of a 41-13 beat-down over their rivals the Technicians of Cass Tech last week.  Quarterback Devaun Williams was involved in 6 touchdowns last week.  He was absolutely spectacular spreading the ball out to his playmakers.  Wr Mycial Allen had a nice showing on the offensive side of the ball while fellow senior James Alexander put in a nice performance on the defense.  On the other hand, East English escaped with a 37-32 victory over Cody last week.  I would be oblivious not to mention the performance senior Desmond King put in last week, three touchdowns.  Quarterback Anton Curtis was solid in the passing game, there is nothing more positive to say about the Bulldogs’ offense.  Now to game at hand, remember, King lost a 34-26 decision to these same Bulldogs in week two.  And to go back even farther than that, last season, King beat Crockett (where most of the East English Players played last year) only to lose in the City Championship to Crockett.  This game will be decided on the defensive side of the ball.  Both teams have explosive offenses, but defense wins championships.  Right now, I just don’t know if the Bulldogs can stop the offense King has.  The Bulldogs got destroyed last week in the running game, due to the scrambling ability of Cody Quarterback DeMarco Gulley.  Williams of King is not quite the scrambler Gulley is, but he possess the ability to run the ball when he needs to.  In the end, I like the Crusaders in this game.  A defense that held Cass Tech to 13 points, and an offense that I have said all year has playmakers.  King will hoist the City Championship this season, a truly remarkable story if they can accomplish it.

King: 20 East English: 14
