It was close for most of the game, but Grand Rapids Christian found a way to beat South Christian in the latest installment of a decades-old rivalry, on Sept. 15.

The Sailors trailed 16-6 at halftime, but cut the lead on the first drive of the third when Luke Schrotenboer called his own number and scored a touchdown on a QB keeper.

Shortly after that, GR Christian's James Patrick caught a short pass from Isaac Dykema and beat many Sailor defenders on his way to a huge touchdown. The Eagles led 23-12 at that point.

Sage Serbenta was the straw that broke the camel's back. He intercepted a Schrotenboer pass and returned it more than 80 yards for a touchdown.

Grand Rapids Christian won 33-12.
