Hard to believe, but playoff time is upon us. Seedings for the South 8A Sub-Section Tournament, which will be held in Perham, are set.

Perham earned the No. 2 seed in the South tournament, and will take on No. 3 seed New York Mills in the Sub-Section semifinals. The Jackets have won both meetings between the two teams, taking a 5-2 match on Aug. 22, and following that up with a 7-0 sweep Sept. 21.

Park Rapids earned the top-seed and will face the winner between No. 4 Mahnomen and No. 5 Bagley in the other semifinal. Bagley will play at Mahnomen today (Oct. 4) in the pigtail game.
