All the slots for the District 2 Football Playoffs have been filled.
The tightest race — in Class 1A — came between Lackawanna Trail and Northwest Area. Mike Ognosky waited out the Saturday afternoon game between Warrior Run and Columbia-Montour Vo-Tech, which Warrior Run won, and released the final official Power Rating Standings.
Lackawanna Trail (6-3) finished with a rating of .476921, just ahead of Northwest Area (5-4), which had a .475754.
That set all of the playoff schedule which begins this week.
