The Six-Man North Division belongs to the Big Sandy Pioneers.

After a shutout victory over the Power-Dutton-Brady Titans last Saturday, Big Sandy takes the top seed in the North and home-field advantage in the upcoming Six-Man playoffs.

The Titans were able to hold Big Sandy to just 35 points offensively, the lowest amount of points of the season, but despite that, the Pioneers put up a great defensive game against the tough PDB team and continue to impress.

Now, Big Sandy will take their next step to a Six-Man state title.

But first, the Pioneers will have to make it through their first matchup of the postseason, the Richey-Lambert Fusion. R-L is the Six-Man East's No. 4 seed and will look to upset Big Sandy's state title ambitions.

The Pioneers (1N) kick off against the Fusion (4E) Saturday at 1 p.m. in Big Sandy.

DGS 68, North Star 18

The North Star Knights area headed to the Six-Man playoffs, even after a tough loss to the Denton-Geyser-Stanford Bearcats last Saturday 68-18 in Denton.

Despite the loss, the Knights will look to still make some noise in the postseason against their first-round opponent, the Jordan Mustangs. The Mustangs are the No. 1 seed in the Six-Man East and are a very tough team.

But, North Star has made improvements by leaps and bounds this season. The Knights will aim to use the motivation as the underdogs to catch Jordan off guard and move to the quarterfinals.

North Star (4N) takes the field against the Jordan Mustangs (1E) Saturday at 1 p.m. in Jordan.

Conrad 53, Harlem 12

The Harlem Wildcats end a tough 2019 season against the Conrad Cowboys. The Wildcats faced off against the Cowboys last Friday and fell 53-12.

CJI's Spencer Richter runs with the ball during last Tuesday's game in Chester.

Harlem's season did not go as planned, but the Wildcats will look to bounce back next year and come back stronger than before.

Chinook 56, CJI 0

The Chinook Sugarbeeters didn't make the Class C playoffs this season, but, they did finish their season on a high note.

Last Tuesday, Chinook went to Chester and blasted arch rival, the Chester-Joplin-Inverness Hawks, 56-0. The game was a Northern C crossover game, since, in the new Northern C, Chinook and CJI aren't in the same division anymore.

The Beeters finished the season at 4-5, but also on a three-game winning streak. CJI finished a tough season at 2-6.
