Clearing up the public school playoff picture

Clearing up the public school playoff picture

| More

The public school playoff picture has rounded completely into form going into the final week of regular season football that kickoffs Friday night.

Four Jefferson District teams as well as a trio of Group A squads are in position to advance to VHSL postseason play. Louisa County and Powhatan are firmly locked into the Group AA, Division 4 Region II bracket, with the Lions simply jockeying for position and a possible home game while Powhatan tries to hold onto the top spot in that bracket as current No. 2 Briar Woods looks to move up.

Monticello is currently holding onto fourth place in Division 3, Region II which would guarantee a home game for the Mustangs. At the bottom part of that bracket, Western Albemarle is in a dogfight for the eighth spot. A win over Louisa will likely put the Warriors in, while a loss will make life tough for Western — they’d need at the very least a Handley High loss to have a shot.

Over in Group A’s Division 2’s Eastern Sectional, Central Virginia squads are running the show right now. Unbeaten Goochland is in the top spot, which would give the Bulldogs home field advantage for a good chunk of the playoffs. On the other hand, that could change with the clash with Amelia, currently sitting at No. 3 in the Eastern Section. Down at No. 5 is Buckingham with William Monroe at the No. 6 spot. The Dragons and Knights are definitely in and appear locked in to host in the first round of the playoffs, but either can solidify their seed or potentially move up with wins this weekend, especially Monroe who faces off with Clarke County, currently in the seventh spot.
