High school football coaches have been busy cramming about prospective opponents over the weekend. They left the field Friday and Saturday afternoon, still not quite sure who they'd be playing this week in the new state football playoff system that now includes the "district system" used in other sports, with seeding thanks to a point differential that made every score count.
Saturday evening, that schedule was released. Here's how it all will start shaking out. MRH and Brentwood are both in Class 2, District 2.
- Brentwood (8-1) plays Principia (3-5) at 7:00 on Friday, Oct. 26.
- Maplewood Richmond Heights (7-2) plays Cleveland NJROTC (1-7) at 7:00 on Friday, Oct. 26.
Both are home games for our teams.
MRH is the no. 1 seed in the district. Brentwood is the no. 2 seed.
