After a rocky 2-3 start to the season, East Grand Rapids has rattled off four consecutive wins heading into a regional championship matchup with Muskegon, whose only loss came at the hands of reigning Division 2 State Champion, Muskegon Mona Shores. The Pioneers and Big Reds last met in a 2019 Regional Final that saw Muskegon roll to a 49-10 win. A lot of familiar faces will take the field this Saturday for the rematch, but rest assured, this Regional Championship being played on a frozen field in January will be unlike any game in this rivalry’s history.
