3A Districts standings starting to make sense

3A Districts standings starting to make sense

(Editor’s note: you can keep up with the district standings by visiting the “Football” sub-site, or by clicking here.)

District games have been going on for 3 weeks now and some teams are rising while others are falling. Lets take a look at the district standings and some key match ups in the next two weeks.

District 1

Columbus has separated itself from the pack a little. They are 6-0 and 3-0 in district play. Right behind them are Galena and Caney Valley, both 2-1 in district standings. Galena owns a win over Caney Valley in week 5, while Columbus has defeated Galena in week 6. If Caney Valley could pull off the upset over Columbus, it would throw a wrench into things, but Columbus has been dominant all season long.

District 2

Highly competitive district is still up in the air with 4 teams in the mix. Prairie View, Anderson County, and Burlington raced out to 3-0 starts, but all have suffered district losses. Frontenac did the opposite, starting out with 3 losses in 4 games, but is 2-0 in district. Burlington is 2-1 in district, its lone loss to Frontenac. Prairie View is 1-1, its loss to Burlington, and Girard is 1-1, its loss to Burlington as well. Frontenac travels to Prairie View in a pivotal match up that may decide the rest of the district. Girard and Prairie View’s game was cancelled and won’t be made up. Girard’s last shot at making a playoff bid a reality lies in week 8 with a game against Frontenac. They must first defeat a feisty Iola team who features several talented athletes.

District 3

Top heavy district with 3 teams sitting with 2 district wins and the other 3 teams have yet to win a game in district. Perry LeCompton and Topeka Hayden are 6-0 and 5-1 on the season, while Santa Fe Trail is 2-4, but both wins are in district. Perry Lecompton and Topeka Hayden meet Friday the 16th to likely decide the district winner. Santa Fe Trail has a winnable game vs Baldwin this week, but a daunting task remains in week 8. They must defeat the defending state runners-up from 2019 to stay up in the standings. Perry LeCompton also leads the East in total scoring offense and and in points allowed per game.

District 4

Holton and Rock Creek are ruling this year. Holton is having a good year, rolling to a 5-1 start, 3-0 in district. Right behind them is Rock Creek, 4-1 and 3-0 in district. Jefferson West is down from last season, going 2-4 with both wins in district play. They already have a big loss to Rock Creek. Jeff West’s last two games have already been cancelled. Sabetha started out looking good with a big win over highly ranked Nemaha Central, but is 1-2 in district, having lost to Holton and Rock Creek. This weeks matchup is not a district game for them.
