Big game in Holly

As is usually the case in Week 9, there are lot of rivalry games where bragging rights will be at stake for intra-city opponents or chief rivals. There are lot of games this weekend between rivals, most notably Clarkston at Lake Orion, Farmington Hills Harrison at Farmington and Birmingham Brother Rice vs. Orchard Lake St. Mary's in the Catholic League Prep Bowl on Saturday night.
But the game Kosmo might be most interested in will be a game between two teams that don't usually play in Week 9.
Ortonville Brandon will play at Holly on Friday night, and this is a huge game that Kosmo can't wait for.
Each team is 5-3, meaning the winner earns an automatic spot into the playoffs. And it's not like these teams usually taste what the state playoffs are all about.
Ortonville Brandon hasn't made the playoffs since 2000, while Holly has qualified for the postseason only one time in school history, and that was in 2006. The Bronchos lost a home game in the first round to Oxford, 6-0, in a game that was a virtual mud bowl.
This game might not have the acclaim that others do on rivalry week, but there might not be a more intense battle around with what is at stake and the reward that awaits the winner.
