Flushing earned its spot in the semifinals with an 8-0 win over Flint, but was unable to keep pace with the Bobcats, who advanced on a 4-0 win over Swartz Creek in the opening round.

On the other end of the bracket, Lapeer defeated Carman-Ainsworth 4-0 to secure its place in the district final. Lapeer had a first-round bye, while Carman-Ainsworth made its way to the semifinals on a 2-1 win over Davison. The district title was ultimately handed to Grand Blanc after it defeated Lapeer 5-1 last Friday at Flushing.

Flushing finishes its season with a 4-13-6 overall, 1-3-4 Flint Metro League record.
