It’s the final week of the football season for Classes 2A, 3A and 4A, while two weeks remain for 1A, 5A and 6A. That means teams are jockeying for playoff seeding.
Brad and Dalton take a look at some games that will have big impacts on the postseason brackets. One of those is Tupelo at Horn Lake (7:21), with the Golden Wave looking to be at least a No. 3 seed out of 1-6A. Over in 1-3A, Booneville can clinch the division by beating Nettleton (9:39), but the Blue Devils would finish fourth with a loss. And in 2-4A, the winner of Shannon-Pontotoc will earn the No. 2 seed and a first-round home playoff game (11:49).
Looking back at last week, Smithville aided its playoff push with a win over Tupelo Christian in the rain (2:09). Booneville bounced back from an upset loss by beating Amory (3:55), while Tupelo rolled past DeSoto Central (5:41).
The guys also touch on volleyball (13:48), as three area teams reached the Final Four in Starkville last week. New Albany got all the way to the title match.
Basketball begins this week, and the action includes the annual Hound Dog Classic at Tupelo (14:55).
Also this week, a Shoutout for Tupelo’s swimming team (17:17) and Athletes of the Week (17:35).
