Football playoff races at a glance

The complete posting of point totals for the Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association football standings was held up this week because some school systems did not play games until yesterday, so we'll take a look at a couple of interesting races in this posting, and get to some others tomorrow.

Besides Eastern Tech, which has essentially nailed down the top slot, the 2A North region has ostensibly settled into a four-team contest for the final three spots, with .81 separating the four teams. Poly remains in second, but defending champion Edmondson has moved into third place, with Randallstown now in fourth and City in fifth, just .08 behind the Rams.

Edmondson hosts Poly Friday afternoon in what may be an elimination game, though the Engineers close the season with City the following week. Meanwhile, the Knights will host Mervo Friday afternoon, while Randallstown goes to Patapsco Friday night.

Meanwhile, if you can't make it to tomorrow's Mount St. Joseph-Gilman clash, fear not, for CN8 will carry the game, albeit on tape delay, Saturday at 7 p.m.
