Playoff Bracket
11/6/2017 11:59 AM

North 1, Group 2

Pairings: No. 8 Ramsey at No. 1 Westwood; No. 5 Pequannock at No. 4 Newton; No. 7 Mahwah at No. 2 Lakeland; No. 6 Waldwick/Midland Park at No. 3 Manchester. 

The favorite: This is going to be the toughest section to win in New Jersey. There are four or five teams with legitimate shots to take the trophy.

The playmakers: Kelvin Gonzalez, Lakeland senior RB; Joe Kramer, Westwood senior TE; Manchester senior RB Osman Kanu.

The Outlook: You know your section is good when two undefeated teams are playing in the first round (Pequannock and Newton). Westwood has a tough road. The Cardinals only beat Ramsey 17-14, so don’t expect the Rams to be intimidated Friday night. This is Manchester’s first playoff appearance since 2003 and it has never won a playoff game.

Bold Prediction: Whoever comes out of the top half of the bracket (Westwood, Ramsey, Pequannock and Newton) will survive a strong test from Lakeland in the final.
