McLouth High football winning streak should propel team into 2A playoffs

October 13, 2018

The McLouth High football team should be a lock for the Class 2A playoffs. The top four teams in each six-team district advance to the playoffs. After rattling off three victories, MHS is 4-3 overall and 3-1 in district play. McLouth finishes up the regular season this coming Friday at Osage City (6-1 overall and 3-1 in district play). With a victory, MHS likely would be the second-place team in District 2, and Osage City would be the third-place team. An Osage City victory likely would switch those standings. During the winning streak, MHS defeated West Franklin (26-24), Oskaloosa (54-0) and then Central Heights (54-14) on Friday at Stan Braksick Sports Complex in McLouth.
