The Ansonia Tigers have unofficially clinched a spot in the upcoming football playoffs, according to the Ohio High School Athletic Association’s weekly computer ratings released on Tuesday.

Through Week 9, Ansonia (7-2) ranks as the No. 3 seed in Division VII, Region 28 with a current average of 13.1444. That would give them a first-round home game, but the Tigers play winless Bradford this week so only stand to gain 3.5 points for a victory. They will not receive any second level points from the Railroaders meaning some teams under the Tigers – Minster, Riverdale, Miami Valley Christian Academy, Lehman Catholic and New Bremen – could jump ahead of them depending on how many points they stand to gain whether or not they win their Week 10 games.

This will be the second consecutive season for the Tigers qualifying for the postseason. Prior to last season, the last time Ansonia was in the playoffs was 2010.

The OHSAA’s final computer ratings report will be released on Sunday, Oct. 28, when 224 schools (top 8 in each region) will officially qualify for the playoffs. 

The complete report showing all teams in every region is posted at: https://www.ohsaa.org/Portals/0/Sports/Football/2018/Week9Rankings.pdf

The top 12 schools in each region are listed below by division and region with record and average points. The football page at OHSAA.org includes an explanation of how the ratings are calculated. The top eight teams in each region in the final report will qualify for the playoffs.

Of the 718 OHSAA member schools playing varsity football this fall, the largest 72 schools are in Division I, while the remaining schools are divided equally in Divisions II through VII (approximately 108 schools in each division).

Football Playoff Schedule Information

During the first four rounds of the playoffs, all games will kickoff at 7 PM. Division I, II, III and VI games will be on Fridays. Division IV, V and VII games will be on Saturdays. More information and the complete postseason schedule are posted at: https://bit.ly/2OteYRe
