Saturday, 12:30 p.m.

Greyhounds separated themselves late in last week’s 47-27 win in Wales.

1. Thornton Academy (8-0)

Gap between Golden Trojans and everyone else just seems to widen every week.


2. Scarborough (6-1)

Red Storm secured second bye week in a month with win over Bonny Eagle.

3. Kennebunk (8-0)

Rams earned home field advantage in B South playoffs thanks to Ryan Connors’ field goal. But last year taught them a rematch in the regional final hardly guaranteed.

4. Marshwood (7-1)

Hawks would probably settle for another low-scoring game with Kennebunk, if they get a rematch.


5. Portland (7-1)

Even with a bye and the Thanksgiving game moved to Deering, the Bulldogs could still have three more games at Fitzpatrick Stadium.

6. Oxford Hills (6-2)

Vikings hope earning first bye in A North translates to first state game since 1999.

7. Fryeburg Academy (7-1)

Raiders didn’t allow more than seven points to anyone over final seven games.


8. Wells (8-0)

More vulnerable than last year? Perhaps. But Warriors have handled the weight of expectations just as well as they did last year, if not better.

9. Bonny Eagle (5-3)

Forfeit by quarterfinal opponent South Portland won’t do anything for Scots’ momentum or confidence as it rides three-game losing streak into playoffs..

10. (Tie) Leavitt & MCI (7-1)

Hornets earned C South top seed thanks to tougher schedule. Huskies dominated C North after falling to Hornets Week 1.
