It's going to be a tough game. PBL will rise to the task, digs super deep and overcome Farmington in a close battle.

It’s never easy to go on the road and win a playoff game. Especially one that kicks off at night. But PBL and GCMS both return to Ford County late Saturday night with a trip to the state quarterfinals locked up.

The Fisher Bunnies had a tough battle with Cumberland on Saturday but we’re able to pull away late. The Bunnies will have to bring their best game to take down undefeated Central A&M in round 2.

Could be a tough weekend for area teams with just some brutal matchups — and mostly on the road. That’s where Tuscola finds itself, heading back to Decatur after losing in Week 4 to St. Teresa. Redemption time?

Competition steps up for area teams in Round 2. I only see PBL, GCMS and Argenta-Oreana making it through to the quarterfinals.
