Unity Football Qualifies for MHSAA Playoffs

For the 4th straight season and 9th time in 11 years the Crusaders will march into the post-season. Behind a massive 2nd half defensive effort that held Byron Center to 1 yard total, Unity was able to overcome a 21-6 halftime deficit and punch in a touchdown with just under 3 minutes left. After that made the score 21-20, Unity went for a 2 point conversion and got it. As if it was scripted the Unity defense held Byron Center on a short 4th down with 1:30 left in the ball game to preserve the win, and qualify the Crusaders for the playoffs. 

Unity will learn where they land in the playoffs on Sunday night as the MHSAA has their Football Playoff Selection Show starting live on Fox Sports Plus at 7:00pm. 

Highlights of last night’s dramatic win are here on Fox 17: Unity beats Byron Center 22-21
