UPDATE: WIAA Playoff Football Brackets Released
UPDATE: The WIAA has finally released the Division 3-7 playoff football brackets, which revised from the pairings which we initially reported.
We told you that Grantsburg would be playing Cumberland… well, that has now changed. The Pirates will instead be playing the Stratford Tigers, who are located near Wausau. The game is not on Friday night now either, it’s going to be on Saturday afternoon.
The WIAA had delayed the release of the brackets due to a pending lawsuit in the state, but on Friday night they released “tentative” pairings. We reported those pairings Tuesday morning, but now have learned that Cumberland earned the #3 seed rather than the #4 seed, meaning the Pirates will be traveling a much further distance than anticipated, and playing on Saturday afternoon at 2pm.
Other matchups include (Note, some of these changed as well):
Somerset (6-1, 8-1) vs. Unity (4-2, 5-4)
Saint Croix Falls (5-1, 7-2) vs. Spooner (5-2, 7-2)
Hurley (5-0, 9-0) vs. Shell Lake (6-2, 6-2)
Frederic (8-0, 8-1) vs. Lake Holcombe (4-3, 5-4)
Florence (5-2, 5-4) vs. Siren (4-4, 5-4)
Wausaukee (6-1, 8-1) vs. Luck (4-4, 4-5)
Clayton (7-0, 9-0) vs. Turtle Lake (4-4, 5-4)
