Rivalry week big for teams not in rivalries

It doesn't get much better than rivalry week, the time of the season when school spirit is at its highest point of the season, even for teams that are bottom-feeders.
The motivation to beat an archrival is always enough to get a school geeked for this week.
However, the thing that makes this rivalry week interesting is the critical games between teams that are not traditional rivals.
One is at Stoney Creek, where the Cougars will host Farmington Hills Harrison in a battle of 5-3 teams that need one more win to get into the playoffs.
Another is at Auburn Hills Avondale, where Avondale will host Berkley in an other matchup of 5-3 squads. If Berkley wins, it would be its first playoff appearance since 1999.
Birmingham Brother Rice needs one more win to get in the playoffs, and it'll have to beat 7-1 Detroit Southeastern on Friday night at Southfield-Lathrup.
Southeastern recently had to forfeit its win in the PSL semifinal for using an ineligible player. Otherwise, Brother Rice would have to face 4-4 Detroit Cody.
Yet another non-rivalry game to keep an eye out on is at Wisner Stadium, where Pontiac will host Birmingham Detroit Country Day.
Pontiac would love to earn some more playoff points going into the postseason, while Country Day needs a win to clinch a playoff spot.
