Division 1 soccer districts

For the first time since the MHSAA switched to four divisions a Division 1 Oakland County team may not make it to regionals. It might be the first time ever, but the MHSAA records on its website don’t go back further than 1998. Five Division 1 county teams will be playing for district championships, but all of them have very tough matchups. Oakland County has had a team reach at least the state semifinals every year except 2004 and have won six of the 10 Divison 1 championships. Here are the Division 1 district matchups involving county teams and my prediction (like it’s worth anything).

Walled Lake Central vs. No. 4 Brighton — My pick: Brighton

No. 10 Novi vs. Livonia Stevenson — My pick: Novi

Royal Oak Grosse Pointe North — My pick: Grosse Pointe North

Rochester Adams vs. No. 3 Utica Eisenhower: My pick: Adams

Lake Orion vs. Grand Blanc — My pick: Lake Orion
