Listen live on Michigan Sports Radio Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. from West Ottawa High School as the Kalamazoo Christian Comets meet the Covenant Christian Chargers. Originally set for 7 p.m. at Davenport University, the game was moved to 7:30 at West Ottawa because of the need for a larger venue. For both schools, this is their first trip to the quarterfinals since their most recent state championship win, coming in 2008 for the Comets and 1994 for the Chargers.
Kalamazoo Christian sits at 18-7, fresh off their 51-33 regional final victory over Quincy. In the last two weeks, the Comets also defeated 12th-ranked Schoolcraft and fourth-ranked Hackett Catholic, both one-loss teams entering the postseason. Kalamazoo Christian is averaging 60.3 points per game overall and 44.0 allowed per contest. Their defense has tightened up even more in the postseason, allowing 39.8 through their five playoff games.
Covenant Christian is 19-5 off of two incredibly tight regional games. They defeated Muskegon Heights Academy 51-50 in the final seconds and survived double-overtime against seventh-ranked Pewamo-Westphalia. The Chargers are averaging 61.5 points per game while allowing 51 per contest.
