It’s Week 9 of the high school football season and its time to ask – How many TCC football teams will make the postseason?
Whiteford and Clinton have already clinched berths. Sand Creek is a win away from an automatic berth and Summerfield and Whitmore Lake have hopes of making it in with 5-4 records.
Here’s a quick look at the four TCC games being played in Week 9 Friday:
Whiteford (8-0) at Britton Deerfield (1-7)
BD’s Spencer Hoffman is the first Patriot to throw for 1,000 yards since Andrew Prielipp did it in 2011. Whiteford is trying to become the first team in Monroe County history to go 9-0 for three straight regular seasons. The Bobcats can also clinch the outright TCC title with a win.
Madison (2-6) at Clinton (6-2)
Madison has never beaten Clinton. Dylan Settles of Clinton leads the Redskins in both rushing and passing.
WQTE (95.3/Adrian) will broadcast this game live.
Summerfield (4-4) at Morenci (2-6)
Morenci beat Summerfield in the 2017 regular season, but Summerfield eliminated Morenci from the 2017 playoffs. Morenci could exact some revenge this week – a Morenci win keeps Summerfield out of the playoffs.
Whitmore Lake (4-4) at Sand Creek (5-3)
Alec Muck has 1,118 yards this season and has set the record for career rushing yards at Sand Creek with 3,792 going into Friday’s game. Whitmore Lake has won two straight to climb back into the playoff picture while Sand Creek is a win away from clinching a berth.
