Class 4, District 4 -- CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL BRACKET

If you like offense, this is the district for you.

Webb City, Carthage, Hillcrest, Carl Junction, Marshfield, and yes, even Republic at times, can all put points on the scoreboard.

The Carthage-Marshfield quarterfinals matchup on Halloween will probably see the two teams combine for 1,000 total yards from scrimmage. What’s the over-under on total points? 80?

A Hillcrest-Carl Junction is likely in the semifinals. CJ was “held” to a season-low 29 points in a Week 1 loss to Webb City. Some teams struggle to score 29 points in three games.

The Bulldogs are relentless on offense and few have been able to stop them. Hillcrest won’t have any problems taking part in a shootout, with Matt Rush and Juwan Johnson sure to put up gaudy numbers.

On the other end of the bracket, Webb City easily handled Carthage in the regular season and Marshfield hasn’t shown the defense to slow down a team like the Cardinals.

Class 4, District 7 -- CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL BRACKET

Bolivar gets a nice advantage as the No. 1 seed, as there’s a clear drop-off after No. 2 seed Pleasant Hill and No. 3 seed Harrisonville. Pleasant Hill-Harrisonville will likely meet in the semifinals, with the winner advancing to face Bolivar.

Harrisonville has caused Bolivar problems in the past, but the Liberators beat them 31-14 on the road in the regular season. Pleasant Hill is undefeated and state-ranked.If the Liberators can get out of districts, that Webb City-Bolivar state title game matchup isn’t far-fetched.
