High school football coaches have been busy cramming about prospective opponents over the weekend. They left the field Friday and Saturday afternoon, still not quite sure who they'd be playing this week in the new state football playoff system that now includes the "district system" used in other sports, with seeding thanks to a point differential that made every score count.
Saturday evening, that schedule was released. Here's how it all will start shaking out:
- Priory vs. Union, 7 p.m. at Parkway North
- Ladue vs. Westminster Christian Academy, 7 p.m. at Parkway West
- Pattonville vs. De Smet, 7 p.m. at De Smet Jesuit
- Parkway North vs. Ft. Zumwalt East, 7 p.m. at Ft. Zumwalt East
- Chaminade vs. Webster Groves, 7 p.m. at Webster Groves
- Note: Parkway Central has a first round bye, and will play the winner of Ft. Zumwalt South/Ft. Zumwalt North on Wednesday October 31.
