Listen live online Friday via JoeInsider.com as Portage Central hosts Gull Lake in the SMAC Gold Bracket tournament championship around 6:40 p.m. ET at Portage Northern. It’s a rematch of last season’s tournament final which saw a 3-2 Blue Devil win in overtime.
These teams met just last week at Huskie Field for a 1-1 draw. The result was good enough for the Mustangs to finish first in the regular season league standings at 8-0-2, ahead of Gull Lake’s 8-1-1. Unlike last week, the tournament match cannot end in a tie with overtime and penalty kicks employed if needed.
In Wednesday’s tournament semifinals, PC flattened Lakeshore 7-0 and the Blue Devils topped St. Joseph 3-0. Portage Central is 11-2-2 overall with Gull Lake at 12-2-1.
