It’s time for our weekly look-in on the District 3 football playoff races! We’re breaking down who’s in, who’s on the bubble and who has work left to do to make the district playoffs. Schools are listed by classification and only Hanover-Adams teams are included.
Class AAAA—Top 16 teams qualify for the District 3 M&T Bank Championships.
On the bubble: South Western (3-5, 3-2, 19th out of 29, .556)
The 41-29 win over William Penn gave the Mustangs a bump in the rankings and moved them back onto the bubble. With two games left against Northeastern and Spring Grove, Damian Poalucci’s squad needs to win both and would still probably need the teams ahead of them to lose. But it’s more doable than it was a week ago. How cool would it be for the young Mustangs squad to get a taste of the playoffs, especially when they return 10 starters on offense next season? Either way, South Western is playing important games deep into October.
