Cadillac’s Historic Season Ends at Ford Field, Losing 13-0 in the State Finals
DETROIT –The Cadillac football program’s historic season came to an end on Friday night after the Vikings fell to Detroit Country Day 13-0 in the Division 4 state title game.
The Vikings defense kept them in the ballgame the majority of the night, coming up with two big stops in the first half to only trail by six points. But, Cadillac’s offense could not make it into the end-zone against the tough Country Day defense.
The Vikings finish their season with an 8-3 record, capping off arguably the most notable postseason run by any Cadillac team in school history.
It was a tough loss for the Vikings to take, especially after this historic run. But, these Vikings have plenty of young talent coming back next year and they are grateful for the opportunity to play in a state championship.
“We got these guys a taste of it,” Cadillac football coach Cody Mallory said. “Hopefully that’s a motivating factor. It’s not an easy road though, so we’ll have to put in our work to make it happen.”
“I feel like a lot of us put it all out on the field,” Cadillac Senior Luke Enyeart said. “For this to be my last game ever, it feels good to know that it was here in the state championship.”
