GRAND RAPIDS, Mich -- Grand Rapids Catholic Central and West Catholic will meet Friday night with a lot on the line at Fifth Third Ballpark. The Cougars would live to take back bragging rights after West beat them last year. Plus, the winner will earn at least a share of the OK Blue Championship.

Both teams have excellent defenses and running games. CC's Nolan Fugate ran for 477 yards in last weeks win over Comstock Park.

"I knew I was having a pretty good night," Fugate said. "I didn't know the exact stat, whatever play coach called. I was trying to run to the best of my ability."

West has found a back in former guard Zack Lee who ran for four scores against Comstock Park two weeks ago.

"He's a really talented kid as you see last year," West Catholic head coach Joe Hyland said. "He was key cog to our offensive line. And then this year he has just been a great part of our offense in a lot of different ways. Having a kid like that really helps us week in and week out, because I think he can kind of be a matchup nightmare for teams on both sides of the ball. So we are thankful he's with us."

The game will be one of our games of the week Friday night on the Blitz.
