Class AA wild card race

Washington's last second touchdown at Southmoreland appears to be for naught as the Prexies do not have enough Gardner Points to qualify for the WPIAL Class AA wild card, even if the Prexies defeat McGuffey Friday night.

McGuffey, on the other hand, remains alive for the wild card and must beat Washington to have any chance.

In the Allegheny Conference, Freeport and Kittanning are still alive for the wild card but Freeport plays unbeaten Ford City. Kittanning's chances are better as it plays West Shamokin.

One of three teams - Burgettstown, South Fayette or Seton-La Salle - could qualify for the wild card from the Century Conference, and it seems one of these teams have the best chance to do so. All three have winnable games this week.

By the way, the Gardner Points system is stupid. Time to upgrade WPIAL.

Is there a scenario in which Burgettstown wins on Friday against Charleroi and does not make the play-offs? Thank you

No, there is absolutely no scenario where Burgettstown will miss the playoffs if the win Friday. As a matter of fact, if all 3 teams that are tied in the Century for 2nd win on Friday, all 3 are in. Most likely, SF 2 SLS 3 and Burgettstown wildcard (4). This result is based on Gardner points because of a 3 way tie.
