Milan, Saline (and Pioneer) in another dogfight for this week's AnnArbor.com Game of the Week poll

Last week, Milan and Saline tied for the poll win in our first AnnArbor.com playoff “Game of the Week” poll.
This week, it’s shaping up to be another dogfight.
The two schools both won their district semifinal games last weekend, along with three other Washtenaw County schools, and advance to this weekend’s district title games.
And as of noon Monday, Milan’s game against Tecumseh had garnered 186 votes in this week’s poll, while Saline’s SEC rematch against Pioneer had garnered 178 votes.
Polling remains open until 6 p.m. Tuesday, with the winner taking home this week’s Game of the Week honors.
Two other games are in this week’s poll: Lake Fenton at Father Gabriel Richard has 115 votes, and Manchester at Grass Lake has 20 votes.
Both Milan and Saline squeaked by to get into the second round of the playoffs. The Big Reds scored in the final two minutes to top Carleton Airport, 14-7 Friday night, while Saline stopped a late two-point conversion and won, 16-14. Pioneer had an easier time with a blowout 34-0 win over Monroe to advance.
