Friday's loss at Erie East apparently meant nothing to the District 10 committee.

Corry is included in the Class AAA teams that have qualified for the playoffs.

Triple A has a field of four teams, with Cathedral Prep, Grove City, Strong Vincent and Corry qualifying. Grove City won Region 5 to grab the No. 1 seed from that region, while Prep has clinched the No. 1 spot out of Region 6. It appears the Ramblers will face at-large Corry in the first round, while Grove City will go against Vincent.

East had an impressive turnaround with five wins for the first time since 1981. But it wasn't enough to collect an at-large spot despite beating Corry 26-13 on Friday.

“I don't agree with the D-10 committee’s decision to set the playoffs before the completion of week 10,” said coach Homer DeLattre. “I don't feel we should be in the playoffs if we don't beat Bradford.

“That’s a must-win game or us,” he claimed.

Corry ends its regular season Friday night at Bradford. Those Owls are also skidding coming off a 64-7 loss to Cathedral Prep.

Beaver QB Scottie Frisina now has 4,685 passing yards. The senior surpassed Sharpsville's John Napotnik (4,597) for second place on the district’s all-time list with 136 yards against the Warriors.

In order to break the D-10 record of 5,060, held by West Middlesex's Kolten Hoffman, Frisina must average 188 yards for two games.

• In Class AA, five of the eight spots are clinched, including General McLane, Fairview and North East.

McLane and Fairview play on Friday, while North East hosts Girard. If Fairview and North East win, the two would be tied with McLane for the top seed.

Sharon and Wilmington are in, with Hickory, Oil City and Greenville fighting for the final two spots in Region 3.

• Defending D-10 Class A champion Farrell has clinched a Class A spot and can win the Region 1 title. The Steelers are joined by Linesville and Sharpsville from Region 1, while Lakeview and Mercer after the last spot. Lakeview and Mercer meet on Friday.

Sharpsville smashed Linesville 42-7 on Saturday.

Mercyhurst Prep, Union City and Cambridge Springs are locks in the Class A field. The final spot out of Region 2 will be decided on Friday when Iroquois visits Eisenhower.

Union City, 6-1 in the region, plays Mercyhurst Prep on Saturday at 7 p.m. at Erie Veterans Stadium. The winner earns the No. 1 seed in Region 2.

The playoffs start the weekend of No. 13-14.
