Brookville(5-3) at Dixie(2-5) Dixie will have home field advantage. But Brookville has a strong running attack that will be difficult to stop. Dixie's offense will need to get in gear to keep up with the Blue Devils. Brookville wins by 2 scores.
Valley View(6-1) hosts Bellbrook(6-2) Can the Eagles pin another loss on the Spartans. Valley View is still strong, but not as strong as they have been in the past. They are coming off of a big win against Eaton, Newsock passed for over 300 yards. Could they let up against Bellbrook? On the other hand Bellbrook won last year, it is rare for a SWBL team to beat the Spartans 2 years in a row. Still my gut feeling is that Bellbrook can pull this one off. Eagles by less than a TD.
Tri-County North(4-3) at Bethel(6-2). Bethel's Goins vs. North's Landis. Which team will be able to establish a running game? Despite their records this should be a close match up. North is smarting from a close loss to Mississinnawa Valley, Bethel won over Covington 21-7. Bethel is a longshot at making playoffs, but still have a mathematical chance. Plus they are playing at home. These two factors give them an edge - Bee's by a TD.
Twin Valley South(0-8) at Arcanum(6-2). Arcanum's ace running back is out for the season with a bad knee, thanks to last weeks loss against the Rockets. But they are deep enough that they can move up the next halfback and not lose much. Arcanum is currently number 6 in the district and should make the playoffs. They will not trip up against the Panthers. Arcanum by 2 or more TD's.
Twin Valley South Junior High tied Milton Union 0-0.
