8 Man-II State Championship Preview From Kpreps.com

The 8-Man, D-II State Championship Game Will Air Live At 11:00 AM Saturday On FM 95.5 KNDY & Streaming Live At http://www.kndyradio.com

By Mark Schremmer, for Kpreps.com

Yes, technically it’s a rematch. The Thunder Ridge Longhorns will meet the Baileyville B&B Falcons in the 8-Man Division II state championship game at Newton for the second consecutive season.

However, Baileyville B&B coach Justin Coup said revenge from last year’s 46-14 loss to Thunder Ridge isn’t a factor entering Saturday’s state title game.

“It’s a rematch because it’s Thunder Ridge vs. Baileyville,” Coup said. “But after that, this is a new year with two different groups of kids.

“Our motivation isn’t rematch or revenge. What’s more important for our kids is to play better than last year and to perform better on Saturday. The motivation isn’t different because it’s Thunder Ridge.”

With that said, both teams are back in Newton with the state title on the line even though each team has taken different paths to get there.

Despite being the defending state champions, Thunder Ridge opened the 2012 season ranked fourth in 8-Man Division II.

District Football Breakdown From Kpreps.com

The hard work and sweat are finally paying off for several area teams as the district playoffs come to a conclusion across the area on Thursday and Friday. This week our high school football broadcast partners at Kpreps.com have compiled the playoff scenarios heading into the final week of the regular season. Get a full review of the scenarios below on the Kansas Pregame Radio Show on AM 1570/FM 94.1 at 6:00 PM Thursday. For a full breakdown of all classifications and districts, see the full article posted at Kpreps.com at www.kpreps.com/features.php?id=618


District 9 – Holton has already clinched a playoff spot as even a 13-point loss to Royal Valley this week coupled with a win by Topeka Hayden over Wamego would leave the Wildcats in the top three in the district points tie-breaker. Wamego is still alive, but must soundly beat Hayden and hope for Holton to take care of business against Royal Valley.

District 15 – In its first year in Class 4A, No. 2 McPherson has clinched a playoff spot as even a big loss at Chapman this week coupled with a win by Smoky Valley over Abilene would leave the Bullpups in the top three in the district points tie-breaker. Abilene must beat the Vikings and hope for a Chapman loss to McPherson if the Cowboys are to extend their playoff streak to six seasons.

District 16 – The district champion and runner-up will be decided in Clay Center on Thursday night as Concordia travels to take on the Tigers.  The winner is the champion and the loser is the runner-up.


District 1 – Hiawatha will travel to Sabetha with the winner being crowned as District 1 champion and the loser will be playoff-bound as the runner-up. Riverside will miss the playoffs in its first season in Class 3A after beginning the season 6-0.

District 2 – This district still has a lot to be decided, but Riley County has clinched at least a playoff spot.  Even if the Falcons lost to Rock Creek by 13 or more points and Nemaha Valley beats Marysville, Riley County would remain in the top two in the district points tie-breaker. Nemaha Valley will travel to Marysville needing a win and a Riley County win to secure the second playoff spot.

CLASS 2-1A (11-Man)

District 1 – Defending champion Centralia will be part of the 2-1A playoffs again this season having already clinched a playoff spot with their 3-0 district record.  The Panthers can win the District 1 title by defeating Jackson Heights in Week 9.  If the Cobras are able to beat the Panthers, they will be the district champs. A Centralia win would drop Jackson Heights to 2-2 in district play; the same record as Valley Heights who has already completed their district schedule.  Jackson Heights holds the head-to-head tie-breaker with Valley Heights after beating the Mustangs 26-21 in Week 8.  Troy can also get to 2-2 in the district by beatingDoniphan West this week.  If Jackson Heights, Valley Heights, and Troy all finish 2-2, the runner-up spot will come down to the district points.  Even if they lose by the maximum of 13 points this week, Jackson Heights would finish with the most points in the tie-breaker system giving the Cobras the runner-up spot.

District 3 – Onaga is the District 3 champion having started 3-0 and with only winlessHerington remaining on their schedule. Wabaunsee will travel to Chase County in the key Week 9 game in this district.  A Chase County win over Wabaunsee will force a three-way tie of teams with 2-2 district records with Northern Heights. Even if they lost by 13 or more points this week, Wabaunsee would win that three-way tie by having the highest district points of the three.  The Chargers are the runners-up regardless, but can simplify the math by beating Chase County in Week 9. Northern Heights has already completed its district schedule.

District 6 – Smith Center is the District 6 champion having won three of their district games by a combined nine points. Ell-Saline can claim the runner-up spot with a win at home over Bennington.  Should the Bulldogs upset Ell-Saline and Plainville beats Washington County, a three-way tie at 3-2 will result.  Ell-Saline would win the tie-breaker in that scenario by virtue of having the most district points.  They could tie in total points with Plainville at 25  a piece, but Ell-Saline’s head-to-head win over Plainville would still give the Cardinals the playoff spot. If Bennington beats Ell-Saline and Washington County upsets Plainville, Bennington will get the district runner-up spot as only they and Ell-Saline would be tied at 3-2, and the Bulldogs would hold the head-to-head advantage.


District 4 – Mankato-Rock Hills will host Osborne this week with the winner taking the District 4 championship.  The loser will fall to 4-2 in district play and into a tie with Clifton-Clyde (who has finished their district schedule) and potentially Pike Valley if the Panthers can get by winless Linn.  The runner-up spot would then by determined by the team with the highest district points total assuming there is no common winner amount the three teams.  If Rock Hills wins the district forcing a three-way tie between Osborne, Clifton-Clyde and Pike Valley for second, Clifton-Clyde would be eliminated having lost to both Osborne and Pike Valley.  Pike Valley would hold the head-to-head tie-breaker with Osborne by virtue of their 50-40 win over the Bulldogs in Week 8. If Rock Hills loses and drops into a potential three-way tie with Clifton-Clyde and Pike Valley, the team with the highest district points total will be the runner-up.


District 1 – Top-ranked Baileyville B&B is the District 1 champion thanks to a 3-0 district record.  The Falcons travel to Blue Valley Randolph (2-2) in Week 9. Hanover has already clinched the district runner-up spot.  Even if the Wildcats should lose to Frankfort this week, they would hold the head-to-head tie-breaker over both of the teams that could tie them in the standings: Axtell and Blue Valley Randolph.
