Detroit Cass Tech dominated in the trenches Saturday afternoon in the PSL championship game at Detroit Northwestern, resulting in an impressive 41-19 victory over No. 5 Detroit King.

It was Cass Tech’s fifth PSL championship since 2013. Cass Tech, which was the last team to repeat as PSL champs (2013 and ’14), failed to make the league playoffs last year.

Cass Tech — 5-0 and ranked No. 2 in The News Super 20 — opened the season with a 34-26 win over King, the defending PSL champs, scoring a pair of fourth-quarter TDs while stopping King in the red zone during the final minute.

The rematch wouldn’t be as entertaining or competitive with Cass Tech’s defense putting pressure on King sophomore quarterback Dante Moore from the opening series, making him feel uncomfortable throughout the game while taking away his favorite target, junior slot receiver/cornerback Lynn Wyche-EL.
