Just two weeks to go in the regular season and it gets started tonight with five games on the local slate.

One team currently on track for the postseason is Ansonia. The Tigers moved up one spot to No. 3 in the Division VII, Region 28 computer rankings this week after shutting out Twin Valley South 43-0 last Friday. A win over Tri-Village will keep Ansonia in a good position for a possible home playoff game. They will host winless Bradford in the final week of the regular season.
