It will be "back on the gridiron" on Friday, November 13, for all four high school football teams whose coverage graces the pages of THE BRILLION NEWS.

Wait! Football on Friday the 13th?

Where are all the black cats?

Will the coin toss be replaced with Tarot cards?

Round One (of two rounds in the mini-playoffs; all game kick off at 7 p.m.):

DIVISION 3: #3 Oconto Falls at #2 Wrightstown; #4 Northland Pines at #1 Freedom. Winners play on THURSDAY, November 19.

DIVISION 4; #3 Southern Door at #2 Brillion; #4 Peshtigo at #1 Amherst. Winners play on Thursday, November 19.

DIVISION 6: #4 Hilbert at #1 Oshkosh Lourdes. Reedsville will play the winner of the Hilbert-Lourdes game on Thursday, November 19.

NON-CONFERENCE: Markesan at Reesdsville, Friday, November 13th at 6 p.m. Reedsville had been scheduled to play Coleman on November 13, but Mr. Corona knocked Coleman out of the playoffs.

Now, to the BONUS ROUND!

Trivia question: Why is the second round scheduled for play on a Thursday night?

Answer (Multiple choice): 1. Because it won't interfere with any fish fries. 2. Because bus drivers are taking Fridays off. 3. Because players will be donning blaze orange on Friday and only Reedsville and Oconto Falls would like that!
