in d5 any one of these 8 teams left would make a great title game. lancaster is obviously the favorite from the south and from the north i would have to say a three way tie between amherst colby and stratford. if amherst wins this weekend over stratford hopefully it's not their "title game" because it is always nice seeing teams who dont normally or have never made it down to madison. stratford has a solid football program and tradition and will show any team they face why they are the best. colby made it down and won state last year so some of the players know how it feels and will want to make it back there for obviouse reasons. goodluck to all!

Prescott is not to be slept on out of the Northwest. They finished fourth in a very physical conference that still has a team alive in D4 and another team still alive on the opposite side of the bracket in D5. Playing against much bigger schools all season long has really allowed them to thrive in the playoffs playing against schools their own size, as has been demonstrated with their two absolute thrashings of Heart O'North champion Cumberland and Dunn St. Croix champion Elk Mound through the first two rounds of these playoffs.

When Somerset first came to the Middle Border in 2002, they were the smallest school and knew they had to put in extra work in the offseason to keep up with the bigger schools year in and year out. Their past decade of success speaks for itself. In recent years, the enrollments at Durand have been declining to the point where they are now the baby of the Middle Border in terms of enrollment size and Prescott isn't much bigger. It looks as though that same kind of work ethic in the offseason that Somerset was forced to adopt has rubbed off on these schools too.

In D7, watch out for Glenwood City.

Playing in the larger Dunn-St. Croix has clearly prepared them well for the playoffs, and the 40-point whuppin' they put on a very good Clayton team speaks to that. - Follow me. Because we all need a bit of sports snark in our lives.
