CONFERENCE AFFILIATIONS: Both are 3A-1
NOTES: As was the case a year ago the Bearcats have the conference’s number 1 seed locked up coming into the game, but this year that includes a first round bye so tonight’s game is the last one until Nov. 22. Cedarville isn’t totally out of the playoff picture but the Pirates will need a win and some help from Charleston and some unlikely sources of Paris or West Fork. Since it’s senior night: Andrew Robertson went over 2,000 yards for his career last week; Anthony McKesson recorded his 10th career sack as well; and Evan Schlinker can close out his career with a single regular season loss with a win (he is 22-1 as a starter).
LAST NIGHT: Was quiet. The junior high season ended a week earlier but there was action that indirectly pertains to Booneville as Hoxie nailed down the three-seed from the 3A-3 and Drew Central wrapped up the four-seed from the 3A-6. Those two will play each other in the Class 3A state playoffs first round on Nov. 15 with the winner earning a trip to Booneville, who has a first round bye, on Nov. 22.
