Novi stuns unbeaten West Bloomfield, 31-28

Apparently 5-4 Novi didn't get the memo they that were a big underdog going into Friday's MHSAA Division 1 football playoff opener at 9-0 West Bloomfield.

Make that 6-4 overall now for the upstart Wildcats, who rode the jet legs of Emanuel Jackson and the accurate arm of quarterback Alec Bageris to stun the previously unbeaten Lakers, 31-28, in the Region 2-District 2.

And if it wasn't the upset of state tourney so far, it was certainly the biggest surprise in the opening-round games in Division 1. It also moves the Wildcats into the district final beginning at 7 p.m. next Friday at Novi Detroit Catholic Central (8-2).
