EAST LANSING, Mich. – June 2 – FOX Sports Detroit will air a series of “Classic” games from the MHSAA Football Finals on Friday (June 5), including the longest game in Finals history.  Here’s the complete schedule:

Noon - 1998 Class AA Final:  Detroit Catholic Central vs. Rockford – Catholic Central repeats in Class AA with a 27-23 victory.  Rockford took a 23-14 lead into the fourth quarter before the Shamrocks got a nine-yard touchdown run from Casey Rogowski on the first play of the segment.  With 5:04 to play, a 70-yard pass play from Dave Lusky to Derek Anderson scored the winning points.

2:30 p.m. - 2000 Division 1 Final:  Grand Ledge vs. Utica Eisenhower – One of the most dramatic finishes in the history of the Finals, as Grand Ledge scores twice in the final minute to capture the Division 1 title, 19-14.  The Comets drove 80 yards in eight plays, capped by a five-yard scoring run by quarterback Matt Bohnet with 53 seconds to go, but failed on the two-point conversion which would have given them the lead.  Grand Ledge recovered the ensuing onside kick, and two plays later, Bohnet hit Tim George with a 45-yard touchdown pass with 22 ticks left on the clock for the game winner.

4:30 p.m. - 2006 Division 2 Final:  Muskegon vs. Warren DeLaSalle Collegiate – These two teams went back and forth, with the fourth lead change going Muskegon’s way enroute to a 32-30 win for the Big Reds.  Ronald Johnson opened the scoring for Muskegon by returning a DeLaSalle fumble 36 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter, and then delivered the winning blow on the first play of the fourth quarter, catching a Chris Crawford pass for a 47-yard scoring play.  Crawford rushed for 228 yards and passed for 137.

7 p.m. - 2007 Division 3 Final:  East Grand Rapids vs. Orchard Lake St. Mary’s – After ending regulation tied at 14-14, these two teams went for five overtimes before East emerged as a 46-39 winner.  During regulation, Joe Glendening scored twice on runs of 68 and 8 yards; and in overtime, he scored in the fourth and fifth extra periods.

Some portions of the games may be edited out due to time constraints.
