at East Palestine,

7 p.m. Friday

WHAT’S AT STAKE: There was a strong indication that the Eastern Ohio Athletic Conference’s first season would play out this way and now the Clippers (7-2, 6-0) and Bulldogs (7-2, 6-0) have one game to decide it all. East Palestine has scored 55 or more points in the last five games. Columbiana’s defense has limited league opponents to 12 points per game. The winner most certainly will be going to the playoffs, but the loser also has a very good chance barring some upsets in Div. VI, Region 21.

Lisbon at United,

7 p.m. Friday

WHAT’S AT STAKE: Lisbon (6-3, 4-2 in the EOAC) has had trouble with its backloaded league schedule in the last two weeks against the league leaders, but the Devils are headed to the playoffs in Div. VII, Region 25. This game will be an issue of placement for Lisbon. A win gets the Devils a home game and a loss probably does not. United (5-4, 3-3) is looking for its first winning season since 2014.

Leetonia at Southern,

7 p.m. Friday

WHAT’S AT STAKE: It’s looking like Leetonia’s league losing streak will reach five years. The Bears (0-9, 0-6) did stick with Wellsville last week, but it was league loss No. 30 in-a-row. Southern (4-5, 2-4) played Columbiana tough last week, but the Indians are probably wishing a few more wins came their way this season.

Toronto at Wellsville,

7 p.m. Friday

WHAT’S AT STAKE: Toronto (4-5, 2-4) has lost four straight and has not looked like a team that could shake things up in the EOAC since the middle of September. The Red Knights need a win for a playoff spot and traditional rival Wellsville (2-7, 1-5) would gladly like to prevent them from going on to play more football.

Oak Glen at Beaver Local,

7 p.m. Friday

WHAT’S AT STAKE: Joe Eitel’s computer points web site says the Beavers aren’t mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but the amount of things the Beavers (6-3) need to happen is so immense that it might as well be already out of it. A win will give the Beavers their best mark since 2005. Oak Glen (2-6) was stung by a sizable loss to previously winless Fairmont East last week. The Golden Bears have one more regular season game left following this one.

St. Clairsville

at East Liverpool,

7:30 p.m. Friday

WHAT’S AT STAKE: St. Clairsville (7-2) has already clinched a playoff spot, but it took it on the nose with a sizable loss to South Range last week. The Red Devils will be jockeying for better position in Div. IV, Region 15. East Liverpool (3-6) has not beat a team with a winning record since 2010.
