Two Playoff Spots Still Up For Grabs In 15-3A

In District 15-3A, here's what we know. Van is in. Everything else is subject to change.

The Van Vandals are 4-0, and district champion. Four teams are 2-2, tied for second place and fighting for the last two playoff spots.

In Chapel Hill, the Bulldogs play Friday night at 0-4 Brownsboro, and can clinch the playoff spot with a win. The Bullard Panthers also control their own destiny. A win at Canton means they're in. They could still make the playoffs with a loss, but they'd need a big upset of Chapel Hill.

For the Canton Eagles, they've got to have a win against Bullard. They've also got to have a win from either Van or Brownsboro, because of the tiebreaker situation. In Lindale, the Eagles aren't done yet, but they've got a tall task. They've got to beat district champion Van, and also have losses from Chapel Hill and Canton. That'll force a tiebreaker that will put Lindale in the playoffs.

So most of this district will be playing with one eye on the scoreboard on Friday night, when two teams will get their tickets punched for week eleven and two teams will start basketball season.
