It's a big weekend for Birmingham sports.
The Seaholm High School football team plays its first playoff game at home, while the Groves High School soccer team takes on Utica Ford in the MHSAA regional finals.
Looking to cheer on your favorite Maple or Falcon? Here's what you need to know:
Seaholm High School football
- When: 7 p.m. Friday
- Where: Seaholm High School
- Opponent: Oxford High School
If you have the day off work, join Seaholm students at 2:30 p.m. for Rally in the Alley, a schoolwide pep rally to get the football team ready for the night's game.
All fall athletes, donning their best Maple gear, will be dismissed from class early to gather in the Seaholm atrium between the gym and the pool. The band will march through the school, leading the athletes and their fans to Maple Field.
During the game, Seaholm fans are looking to "maroon out" Maple field. The football booster wil be selling maroon t-shirts before the game for $5. Remember: game tickets are $5 and those with OAA passes will still need to buy a ticket.
Also, if you're at the game, look out for the Seaholm Maple Money table, sponsored by the Seaholm Parent Teacher Student Association. If you've donated $100 this year, you'll receive a fleece and nylon Seaholm blanket. Volunteers will also be on hand for those looking to upgrade their donations and receive their blanket at the game.
Groves High School soccer
- When: 6 p.m. Friday
- Where: Fraser High School (34270 Garfield Rd., Fraser)
- Opponent: Utica Ford
After defeated L'Anse Creuse North 4-1 earlier this week, the Falcons boys soccer team heads to the MHSAA regional championship Friday evening. To watch the game, Falcon fans will need to head to Fraser High School.
According to MI Prep Zone, the Groves soccer team has scored 13 goals in four playoff games, including last Friday's district championship game against Berkley. Groves won that match in overtime 3-2.
