Hockey Sweeps into Semifinals

Sydney Roberts

The Brighton High School Varsity Hockey team is playing in the MHSAA D1 semi finals. The team will play Grandville at USA Hockey Arena in Plymouth tonight at 7:30pm. 

Brighton’s record is 21-5-1 and Grandville’s is 20-7-1. Both teams have good records losing here and there. A big downfall is when both programs play private schools such as Orchard Lake St Mary’s, Detroit Country Day and Detroit Catholic Central.

Michigan does not have a separate division for the private schools in the state. The state of Texas has two divisions the University Interscholastic League (UIL) for public schools and Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) for private and parochial. 

The state final game will take place on Saturday March, 12. The winner of Brighton vs. Grandville and Detroit Catholic Central vs. Midland will face each other then.
