Three area teams make eight-man playoffs

Three area schools will be extending their seasons in football this year as playoff brackets for the two eight-man classes were announced Saturday by the NSAA.

In Class D-1, Laurel-Concord-Coleridge (5-3) earned the No. 11 seed in the East bracket and will go on the road to face Thayer Central (6-2) in the first round Thursday at Hebron. Wakefield finished the season 7-0 but was not eligible to compete in the playoffs due to enrollment figures.

In Class D-2, both Allen and Winside are in the playoffs. Allen (6-0) is the No. 4 seed in the East bracket and will host Johnson-Brock (3-5) in a Thursday matchup. Winside (5-3) will have a rematch with Wynot (5-1) in a matchup of the No. 3 and No. 14 seeds Thursday in Wynot.
