Weekend Blitz: Winners will play for state championships

Nov. 10—The Vikings are unbeaten this season and have won three straight in this series. But the Scots, though probably not as strong as in past years, are the type of program that has earned this disclaimer: They're always tough and always a threat.

These teams played a close state title game last year and opened the season with an overtime thriller. Expect another state final-caliber battle. How is this only a semifinal?

On one hand, the Falcons are the only Class D team to beat the Greyhounds this season (in Week 1). On the other hand, the Greyhounds are the only team to beat Foxcroft this season. How is this only a semifinal?

The Capers won last year's regional final by two points; the Hornets won this year's regular season meeting by one point. In the next episode of this series, expect late-game heroics. Or overtime. Or both.
