While the home team Falcons are playing for seeing, the Mustangs are occupying the eighth and final playoff spot with just over a week until the playoffs start (on HAN Network!). No. 4 Ludlowe (9-4-0) is one point ahead of Staples and would host their quarterfinal match if the season ended today. Warde (7-4-2) would be the No. 8 seed and face No. 1 Danbury if the postseason started today.
The fall postseason coverage begins tomorrow (Wednesday, Oct. 19) on HAN with the Cross Country Championships. Boys soccer kicks off our team playoff coverage with one of four quarterfinals matches on Thursday, Oct. 27. You can see the rest of the fall schedule here.
