The final week of the season is here with a number of playoff spots on the line for all of the Carroll County teams.
Region 7 2A
Five teams are still in the hunt for playoff spots going into this last week. McKenzie went the first half of the season winless with an 0-5 record and picked up the pace winning three out of the last four games all of them region contests. If they beat Gibson County this Friday night they will likely finish third in the region sending them on the road for the first round of the state playoffs. If they lose to the pioneers, then they are out of the playoff hunt.
Trenton wins the region regardless of what happens in their game at Adamsville this week but the other three spots could change depending on what happens between the Rebels and Gibson County. So if McKenzie wins it will be Trenton, TCA, McKenzie, and Union City in the playoffs. If McKenzie loses to Gibson County, it’ll be Trenton, Union City, TCA, and Gibson County going to the playoffs.
Region 6 1A
Huntingdon owns the region title and first seed in the playoffs and has this week off while everyone else dukes it out for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.
One game this Friday will decide second and third place. Wayne County visits Collinwood. Both teams have 4-1 region records both lost to Huntingdon. The winner here will finish second and host a playoff game while the loser goes on the road to open the playoffs.
The final spot is pretty clear too with Bruceton-Hollow Rock traveling to McEwen. The winner takes the fourth spot while the loser is done for the year.
Region 7 1A
This region has really been a surprise to many this year and three of the four spots are up for grabs this week. Here’s what we know. There are five teams with playoff chances. Lake County locked up the region title and the top seed after defeating West Carroll last week. Now if West Carroll defeats Greenfield this week they will finish second and host a playoff game. If they lose to Greenfield they will finish third and hit the road for the playoffs. The fourth spot will come down to either South Fulton or Dresden depending on this week’s games. If South Fulton defeats Gleason they will finish fourth. If South Fulton loses then Dresden will squeak into the playoffs after a rough season losing key players.
