Swanton remains in playoff position following win


Staff Report



The OHSAA released their second set of football computer rankings on Tuesday and Swanton remains in playoff position.

Swanton dropped from fourth to seventh in this week’s poll for Division V, Region 16. The Bulldogs defeated Bryan to move to 5-0 last week. But Bryan being winless helped to keep Swanton from gaining many points and allowed others to pass them. Swanton, ranked 9th in the Division V AP Poll, returns home to face Evergreen for homecoming on Friday.

The Vikings (4-1) fell out of playoff position with a loss to Liberty Center last week. They are now in 11th in Division VI, Region 20.

Also in Region 20, Delta dropped from 8th to 12th after falling at Patrick Henry – the Panthers second blemish of the season.

In Division IV, Region 12, Wauseon (4-1) remains fifth in the rankings after defeating rival Archbold.

The top eight teams in the region at the end of the regular season qualify for the playoffs. The top four host an opening round game.
