With Eastern and Federal Hocking upcoming within the conference, Trimble has the Hocking all but wrapped up. The Tomcats will be playing for playoff positioning within D-VII, region 25, in which they rank first, and will face a stiff text in Alexander in week nine.


2.) Belpre Golden Eagles 5-2 (5-1) | Last Rank: 3 | Next Opponent: @ Parkersburg Catholic

3.) Miller Falcons 5-2 (3-2) | Last Rank: 2 | Next Opponent: @ Federal Hocking

Despite its loss to Belpre, Miller remains in the hunt to make the OHSAA state tournament. The Falcons sit in seventh place in D-VII, region 25 and will have to win out, and get some big performances out of Kody McKinnis, in order to maintain its playoff spot.


T-4.) Southern Tornadoes 3-4 (2-3) & Waterford Wildcats 3-4 (2-3) | Last Rank: 5, 4 | Next opponent: each other

Southern and Waterford are tied for tenth in D-VII, region 25 with a computer rating of 3.95. They stand on the outside looking in, but the winner of Friday’s head-to-head match will keep its post-season hopes season alive.

Should Southern win, it would have to pick up wins against South Gallia and Eastern to potentially secure spot. Waterford would needs wins against Federal Hocking and Belpre.
