PLAYOFFS

The top 16 teams in each of Ohio’s 24 regions will play in the post-season this year. The top eight teams will host a first round game.

Div III Region 12: Western Brown is third and has clinched a post-season berth regardless of the results of the last two games. The Broncos can score big points this week against Wilmington but won’t change much in the finale against Batavia. New Richmond is seventh and control its playoff destiny with Clinton-Massie and Goshen in the final two games and could host a game if things fall right. Wilmington is 12th and gets a Week 11 game with wins over Western Brown and Clinton-Massie. To host in playoffs, WHS needs two wins and some help.

Div IV Region 16: Clinton-Massie and Bethel-Tate are both on the outside looking in at this point. Even with wins over New Richmond and Wilmington, the Falcons need help. The Tigers will get good points against Williamsburg this week with playing Dohn Academy in Week 10 won’t help.

Div V Region 20: Blanchester is eighth at this time and will get in with two wins and an 8-2 finish. There’s still hope for the Wildcats to host a game and a win against mighty Tri-Village this week will go a long way in that process.

Div VI Region 24: Williamsburg is fifth and regardless of finish the Wildcats are in. Hosting a game in that region means possibly facing a team with a losing record, so a 2-0 finish would be good for WHS.
