Local Teams To Watch This Friday
The final week of the high school football regular season has arrived and while some area teams have
clinched playoff spots, others still need a victory in week 10 to have a shot at the postseason.
Division 3, Region 10
#2 Mansfield Senior (8-1) vs. Madison (0-9): The Tygers have clinched a playoff spot and need to
avoid an major upset to have a solid shot at hosting a regional quarterfinal game.
Division 4, Region 14
#2 Galion (8-1) @ D5, R 18 #4 Pleasant (7-2): A Galion win assures them at least a share of the
MOAC. A Pleasant win along with a Clear Fork victory over Shelby gives a 4-way tie amongst all teams
mentioned. This game will also give the winner a home playoff game.
#6 Clear Fork (6-3) @ #7 Shelby (6-3): This is the second game that will help determine the MOAC with
the winner clinching a playoff position. However, the losing team may still make the postseason with
Division 6, Region 22
#1 Western Reserve (8-1) vs. Mapleton (1-8): The Roughriders have already clinched a playoff spot
and clinches a home week 11 game with a win.
#2 Seneca East (8-1) vs. Buckeye Central (0-9): The Tigers can clinch at least a share of the N-10 title
with a win and can get it outright with a win and a Wynford loss. The Tigers can also lock up a home
game in week 11 with a victory.
#4 Northmor (8-1) vs. D4 Highland (4-5): The Golden Knights can clinch a share of the KMAC with a
victory and an East Knox loss. Northmor has already locked up a home game in week 11 and possibly
can move up in the rankings with a victory.
#6 Hillsdale (6-3) @ D5 Waynedale (4-5): The Falcons can lock up a playoff spot with a win. If they
lose, they would need help to get in.
#11 Crestview (6-3) vs. D7, R26 #10 Plymouth (7-2): The winner of this game will stay alive to get into
the postseason, but will need help to get in. The loser is out.

have a shot at making its first playoff appearance since 1991. The Royals have been eliminated from the
postseason, but can still clinch at least a share of the N-10 with a win and get it outright with a win and a
Seneca East loss.
