IHSA Football Playoffs
October 24, 2011 by staff
IHSA Football Playoffs, When couples of the IHSA football playoffs were announced Saturday night, Morris (8-1), a No. 1 seed in one of the two brackets in the Class 5A South, was scheduled to play No. 7 Dunlap (6-3).
However, due to a misinterpretation of the IHSA playoff procedures for planting, which has changed this year, the Redskins’ first round opponent was changed. Morris now will host No. 8 Morton (6-3) in the first round.
Both Morton and Dunlap were tied in wins, defeated opponents and win opponents wins. However, the tie head to head, was not applied, as Morton beat Dunlap was in the regular season.
Shortly after the couple were released on Saturday night, coach Alan Thorson Morris Dunlap heard that something was wrong. Later that night, I received an email saying the IHSA couples have changed.
Fortunately, both the Big 12 Northern Illinois and mid-Illini Conference, where Dunlap Morton and compete, using the same software for the film. Therefore, the films were exchanged online and no more trips to be done.
Misinterpretation tiebreaking also had an effect on the Class 1A, where Kewanee Wethersfield and the United States changed Monmouth seeds.
Thorson is all that came out happy.
“We will play anyone,” said Thorson. “We are thrilled to have to sit up to be honest.”
Showdown looms with JCA
At this point, the Redskins focus on the care of Morton in the first round.
However, it is impossible not to look into what could be ahead in the second round.
That would be a 7-2 game with Joliet Catholic, the No. 4 seed in the support of Morris. The Hilltoppers will play No. 5 Lincoln-Way West (7-2) in the first round.
If Morris and Joliet Catholic meeting, which will be a home game of the Redskins.
“The good thing is that if a game ends JCA that will be in Morris,” Thorson said Saturday night.
Coalers to meet Public League team
Coal City could not have asked for a tie in the Class 4A more.
The South Stand is full of talent, with teams like defending champion Rochester and Bishop McNamara. 08.01 let alone maintain, the only team to defeat the Coalers this season.
Coal City gets the No. 2 in the northern section, which includes seven schools in the Chicago Public League, which has never had great success in the playoffs. The 8-1 Coalers will host the Chicago Public Fenger League (6-3) in the first round.
“I know nothing about them,” said coach Lenny Onsen Coalers Saturday night. “Who knows what the offer will be with them.”
With a win, the Coalers play either No. 7 seed Plano (7-2), who beat Coal City earlier this year, or No. 10 seed Stillman Valley (7-2), a perennial power in the second place Class 3A last season. Richmond-Burton is the No. 1 seed in the upper half of the Class 4A bracket.
Other top teams in the north is the support No. 6 Sandwich, another computer on the Coalers defeated, and the fifth-seeded Rock Island Alleman, last season’s Class 4A runner-up.
“We just really have to take care of business [in the first round],” said Onsen. “[Fenger] is opening our opponents.”
The Indians open at home
With the loss Friday night at Oswego, Minooka coach Bert Kooi his Indians did not expect to have a first home game all year.
However, Minooka will host Naperville Central in the first round of the Class 8A playoffs. The Indians are the No. 8 seed in the southern section 8A, while the RedHawks 3.6 are the seed of sessions.
“We had a very good idea we were going to play Naperville Central,” said Minooka coach Bert Kooi Saturday night. “We thought for sure we’d be on the way. … We are very excited about the opportunity to host a playoff game.”
The winner of Minooka, Naperville Central to get either the top-seeded Waubonsie Valley (8-1) and No. 16 Belleville East (5-4).
After playing in Class 7A in the last two years, the Indians finished the season 8A, where the smaller school.
It’s not something he is concerned about Kooi.
“I do not see it that way. We are very excited about the opportunity we enjoyed the opportunity,” said Kooi. “I do not care if we’re talking 6A, 5A. There are some very good football teams in all those classes.”
