Coming off a tough 54-18 loss at home last Friday to Decatur St. Teresa, the Clinton Maroons will return to action Friday night with a Central Illinois Conference matchup at Tuscola. At 2-3 on the year, the Maroons need wins in three of their next four games to qualify for the postseason.

Tuscola is 4-1 on the season and the Maroons play two of their final four games against teams with winnings records. Securing a spot in the playoffs will be increasingly difficult as the Maroons play three of their final four games on the road beginning tonight at Tuscola, and finishing the season at Sullivan-Okaw Valley. Sandwiched in Weeks 7 and 8 are a road game at Meridian and senior night versus Warrensburg-Latham.

Game time tonight is at 7 pm. Hear all the action the Big 1520 AM/92.3 FM WHOW and streamed live online at dewittdailynews.com.

The Cerro-Gordo Bement Broncos are coming off a tough loss on the road last Friday night at Sangamon Valley in Niantic. Tonight the Broncos will play in Bement for Bement's homecoming night. A difficult matchup awaits them however as they host Arthur-Lovington-Atwood-Hammond.

At 2-3 on the year, the Broncos risk missing the playoffs for the first time under Andy Kerley since the Cerro-Gordo Bement merger. Kerley and the Broncos did miss the playoffs in 2010 in his first year when the team went 4-5.

Three of the four final games Cerro-Gordo Bement has remaining features teams with winning records, including an undefeated Arcola team on the road and a 3-2 Maroa-Forsyth team on senior night in Maroa.

Game time tonight from Bement is at 7 pm. Hear all the action live on 95.9 FM WEZC and online at dewittdailynews.com.
