FRIDAY, OCT. 28
PARKWAY NORTH AT WEBSTER GROVES, 7 P.M.—The winner gets into the playoffs. The loser goes home. After dropping its first regular season game since 2008, Webster Groves High School finds itself in need of a win if it wants to keep its season alive. After falling on hard times in the middle of the season Parkway North High School is back and on a roll. The Vikings have standout Donavin Newsom, a Mizzou recruit, back on both sides of the ball. With him on the field, Parkway North can give anyone a game.
PARKWAY CENTRAL AT CHAMINADE, 7 P.M.—After slapping Webster Groves with a 34-13 loss last week, Parkway Central has guaranteed itself a spot in the playoff bracket. With a win over a depleted Chaminade, the Colts will be the district champions. Parkway Central’s defense hounded Webster into six turnovers and turned its magnificent offense into a circus act. It’s hard to imagine the Red Devils giving the Colts any kind of problems.
PARKWAY SOUTH AT CBC, 7 P.M.—The juggernaut that is CBC just keeps on rolling. Unbeaten and unspoiled, the Cadets face their final regular season test against a Parkway South High School team that has ridden a bit of a roller coaster this season. The Patriots opened the season with high hopes only to see them dashed once they got into the tougher parts of the Suburban West Conference. With Lafayette High School continuing to win, this is more than likely the last game Parkway South will play this season. Whether it’s a good one or not depends on the Patriots.
LINDBERGH AT SLUH, 7 P.M.—With a win over Lindbergh High School, St. Louis University High will win the district and earn the home game that comes with it. Lindbergh has to win in order to get in. If it doesn’t, it’s going to be in need of some help from Mehlville against De Smet.
SATURDAY, OCT. 29

BRENTWOOD AT JOHN BURROUGHS, 11 A.M., PRINCIPIA VS. WHITFIELD AT JOHN BURROUGHS, 1 P.M.—The first round of districts opens with a clash of small school thumpers. The state champion has come from this district eight of the last nine years.
JOHN BURROUGHS AT PRIORY, 1 P.M.—More than likely this game is for seeding purposes only. Barring something unforeseen, the Bombers and Rebels are far and away the two best football teams in this district.
WEDNESDAY, NOV. 1
BOYS SOCCER: SEMIFINALS FOR THE CLASS 2, DISTRICT 5 TOURNAMENT AT CLAYTON’S GAY FIELD , 4 P.M. AND 6 P.M.—This is what the Priory soccer team has been waiting a year for.

Clayton High School takes on Westminster in the later game.
