White Pigeon earned a 30-8 home win against Saugatuck Friday to secure a Division 8 football district championship. The Chiefs now advance to the regional final for the first time since the 1990 season.
The WP defense has now held four of their last five opponents to one touchdown or less. The Trailblazers were only able to muster 109 total yards in the rematch from week one.
White Pigeon improves to 10-1 while Saugatuck closes at 6-5. The Chiefs must now travel to Hudson next week in the regional championship. The date and time are yet to be announced. The Tigers (11-0) beat Addison (who knocked out Centreville last week) by a 28-8 score Friday.
