DEFENDING CHAMP/TEAM TO BEAT
Carl Albert Titans
Carl Albert comes into the playoffs once again as the team to beat and to capture a fourth consecutive gold ball. The Titans were stunned in the regular season when their 40-game winning streak came to an end in a loss to Piedmont. The Titans have bounced back and could be more dangerous now as they enter the playoffs. They’re coming off a week ten showdown with rival Bishop McGuinness, where they blew out the Irish 40-0. They might have had a set back in October, but they look as strong as ever going into November.
MARQUEE FIRST ROUND GAME
Piedmont AT El Reno
Piedmont sent shockwaves throughout the state when they stunned top ranked Carl Albert. On the same night, El Reno lost a shootout to Noble, putting them in second place in the district. This game features two teams that are certainly two of the best in Class 5A. Not to mention, this will be a rematch of a game back in September that El Reno was able to come out victorious in a close one. Both teams are looking for their first playoff win in over a decade.
