Ypsilanti Community High School lost its first-ever football game to Milan in a contest that took a couple of days to decide.  Friday night's game was suspended in the third quarter due to lightning, and continued Saturday afternoon.  The final score: Milan 13, Ypsilanti Community High 6.  The Grizzlies scored on a 34-yard pass from Mike Caldwell to Jalen Maxwell.  The extra point attempt failed.
