Knights No. 1, Dragons’ Bubble Burst as District 10 Releases Football Playoff Brackets

October 29, 2022

SHARON, Pa. – Eisenhower earned the top seed in Class 1A, and Warren was left out of Class 3A as District 10 released its football playoff brackets on Saturday.

The District 10 selection committee rewarded Eisenhower’s undefeated regular season with the No. 1 seed in Class 1A ahead of No. Reynolds (9-1) whose lone loss was to Class 2A No. 2 seed Sharpsville. There was speculation that the Raiders’ schedule would push them past the Knights.

Both the Knights and Raiders will have a bye into the semifinals. Eisenhower will face the winner between No. 4 Cambridge Springs and No. 5 Mercer at a date, time, and location to be announced.

The committee clearly viewed Region 3 as the toughest in Class 3A. Not only did Grove City earn the top seed, but Hickory (5-4) got the No. 7 seed ahead of No. 8 Fairview (5-5). The Hornets and Tigers earned a spot while the third team on the bubble, Warren (5-5), did not qualify. Fairview had a head-to-head win over Warren in its favor, and though Hickory had a worse overall record the Hornets did have a win over Grove City.

The other top seeds include Farrell (2A), Grove City (3A), Meadville (4A), and McDowell (6A). Cathedral Prep is the only D10 Class 5A school, and thanks to opt-outs from Districts 6 and 8, the Ramblers have advanced to the PIAA tournament where they will face the WPIAL (District 7) champion.
