Likely locations for round 1 of the playoffs

DUNCAN — With just one week left in the regular season, the playoff picture is pretty clear for most teams.

And while they may all be focusing on their Week 10 opponents, fans can start making their Week 11 travel arrangements.


This much we know: Duncan will travel to the Oklahoma City area in the first round of the playoffs.

The Demons, who will finish either third or fourth in District 5A-1, could play Bishop McGuinness (6-0 in 5A-2), Guthrie (5-1) or Deer Creek (5-1).

The most likely scenario is that McGuinness will win the district, with Guthrie as the runner-up, while Duncan earns the No. 3 spot by way of a win over Chickasha or a loss by Ardmore against Lawton MacArthur.

That means the odds are that Duncan is headed to Guthrie for a rematch with the Bluebirds, who the Demons lost to, 43-0, in their season opener.


Marlow’s hopes of reaching the playoffs rest solely on the shoulders of Mount St. Mary, which plays Little Axe this week.

If Mount St. Mary wins, Marlow will earn the No. 4 spot in District 3A-1. If Little Axe wins, it will secure the final playoff spot.

Whichever team earns the No. 4 spot will have its hands full as it travels to Seminole (8-0 overall, 5-0 in District 3A-2) for the first round of the playoffs.


The Indians not only need to beat Hinton on senior night, they need to win big.

If Comanche beats Hinton, it will force a three-way tie with Hinton and Hobart. To come out on top in that tiebreaker, the Indians need to win Friday night’s game by at least 15 points.

Should Comanche be able to pull off that feat, it will earn the No. 4 spot in District 2A-3 and travel to Davis (9-0 overall, 5-0 in District 2A-4) for the first round of the playoffs.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
