Northview To Host Jay In First Round Of 1A Playoffs Friday Night

November 3, 2019

The Northview Chiefs will be at home Friday night against the Jay Royals in the first round of the Florida High School Athletic Association 1A state championship series.

The Florida High School Athletic Association released final rankings and playoff brackets Sunday morning.

The Baker Gators remain the top ranked team in Region 1-1A and have a bye Friday night, along with Vernon, the No. 2 ranked team. The Chiefs are ranked No. 3, while Jay is ranked No. 6. Only the top six teams in the region make the playoffs.

The Chiefs (7-2) are coming off a 40-7 win just this past Friday night over Jay (4-6). The winner of the Northview vs. Jay regional quarterfinal game will advance to face Vernon (7-3) on November 15 in the regional semifinal round. Baker will face the winner of next Friday night’s Graceville at Freeport game.

Northview’s only two losses this season were 14-12 to Baker and 34-26 to the defending Alabama 3A state champion Flomaton Hurricanes.  Baker’s 38-game regular season win streak came to an end Saturday night as Blountstown beat the Gators 33-7.

Kickoff for Friday night’s game is 7:30 p.m.

Final Region 1-1A final rankings are as follows:

  1. Baker 0.665 (9-1)
  2. Vernon 0.629 (7-3)
  3. Northview 0.625 (7-2)
  4. Freeport 0.574 (6-3)
  5. Graceville 0.573 (7-3)

  7. Holmes County 0.484 (5-5)
  8. Chipley 0.446 (2-8)
  9. Cottondale 0.418 (2-7)

Teams are ranked based upon a RPI formula. RPI stands for Ratings Percentage Index. In short, it is a way to measure a team’s strength relative to other teams, based largely on the strength of their schedules.

Final four play is November 29, and the 1A state championship is in Tallahassee on December 7. photo.
