Glimpse At Playoff Picture Entering Week 10



With two weeks to play, the playoff picture is coming into focus.

As we kick off Week 10, we take a quick look at potential playoff scenarios.

Class A
Region 1A
The seeds are set for this region as there is just one game between region foes to play over the next two weeks.

Cloudland has claimed the No. 1 seed and at least a share of the Region 1-A title. The ‘Landers can win the region outright with a win over North Greene in Week 11.

Unaka has clinched the No. 2 seed and a home playoff game.

Cosby and North Greene will be the No. 3 and No. 4 seeds, respectively.

Region 2A
While the seeds in Region 1A have been decided, there is still a lot to be decided in Region 2A.

A big step in deciding the Region winner will happen on Friday night as Coalfield and Oliver Springs are set to face off as both teams are undefeated in league play.

Coalfield will claim the Region title and the No. 1 seed with a win over the Bobcats, while Oliver Springs will take the crown and top seed with a win over Coalfield and a win over Midway in Week 11.

If Oliver Springs wins one of their last two, they will be the No. 2 seed.

The third and fourth seed is still a wide-open race as Oakdale and Greenback are jostling for the final two spots. Midway still has a shot to make the playoffs but would need to win out and things to fall a certain way.

Class 2A
Region 1-2A
Just like Region 1 in Class A, Region 1-2A has the field for the playoffs set.

Hampton claimed the No. 1 seed after going 3-0 in region play. The Bulldogs outscored the region opponents 144-8.

South Greene claimed the No. 2 seed, while Happy Valley will be the No. 3 seed.

Cumberland Gap will enter the playoffs as the No. 4 seed.

Region 2-2A
With just two region games to be played, the picture is somewhat clear for Region 2.

York Institute, Monterey, Rockwood and Onieda have all clinched playoff spots.

If York Institute defeats Rockwood in Week 11, the Dragons will claim the No. 1 seed along with the Region 1-A title. With a Rockwood win over York (along with a Monterey win over Wartburg Central also in Week 11), we would see a three-way tie for first in the region.

Oneida is locked into the No. 4 seed.

Class 4A
Region 1-4A
With just two games remaining on the region schedule, we have a pretty clear picture of how things will shake out in this region.

Greeneville will be the No. 1 seed after going 5-0 in Region 1-4A play.

With a win over Seymour next Thursday night, Elizabethton will claim the No. 2 seed with Grainger taking the No. 3 and Seymour finishing as the No. 4 seed.

If Seymour were to take the win over Elizabethton, we would see a three-way tie between the Cyclones, Seymour and Grainger that would move into tiebreakers to determine the order.

The other remaining game on the Region 1-4A is between Sullivan East and Volunteer – both of who have been eliminated from playoff contention.

Region 2-4A
There are some puzzle pieces to be fitted in Region 2-4A.

Anderson County has clinched the No. 1 seed and at least a share of the region title. If the Mavs defeat Scott or Carter defeats Fulton, Anderson County will win the region outright.

Fulton will claim the No. 2 with a win over Carter.

Gibbs, Carter and South-Doyle are all fighting for the final two spots. Week 10 will go a long way in deciding the spots as South Doyle and Carter square off on Thursday night.
