As the playoffs get closer the playoff picture has narrowed itself to just one area team with the ability to make the playoffs and they have a big game this week.

The Lone Tree Lions have kept in playoff contention with a 7-1 record and their only loss coming to non-district Baxter.

In Class 8 District 4 Lone Tree is currently tied with Midand above the district with 4-0 records but due to a 17 point differential, Lone Tree technically leads the district. Midland has a 14.5 point differential, something that could be a big difference as the next two weeks occur.

Lone Tree has a chance to clinch a playoff spot this week with a 17-plus point win over Iowa Valley which would give them two losses in district play.

If Lone Tree loses this week then they will have to have a victory against Midland the next week and the three way tie would come down to point differential.

That scenario is what left 8-1 Lone Tree out of the 2016 playoffs.

The BC Moore computer rankings has Lone Tree as six point underdogs to Iowa Valley and six point underdogs to Midland.
