Penn Cambria and Glendale will try to secure the last two District 6 high school football playoff spots this evening.
Seven of the eight spots in District 6's Class AA and Class A were secured on Friday night.
District 6 will make the brackets official Sunday morning at Altoona Area High School, but the point standings with one day left to play could be calculated after Friday's games.
Penn Cambria hosts Somerset tonight trailing Juniata for the eighth and final 6-AA slot by 150 points. Should the Panthers prevail in their regular-season finale, they would earn 170 points and a rematch next Friday night against Richland.
Richland already had wrapped up the top seed in 6-AA even before its 14-7 win at Bellwood.
If Penn Cambria advances, it will give the Mirror coverage area four teams in the double-A field; the Panthers would join Central, Tyrone and Cambria Heights, who finished third, fourth and fifth in the rankings.
Cambria Heights had the inside track at the second seed heading into the night but fell all the way to fifth by losing at Northern Cambria while Ligonier Valley, Central and Tyrone won. Ligonier edged out Central for the second seed by 20 power points, helped by wins from Purchase Line, Blairsville, Windber, Saltsburg and Northern Cambria - which the Rams already had defeated - on Friday night.
Heights will travel to Tyrone for a quarterfinal game, while Central hosts sixth-seeded Forest Hills. Both those games will be next Saturday night.
Bald Eagle Area will be at Ligonier, the second seed, in the other Friday game.
If Glendale gets by Ferndale tonight, the Vikings will get into the playoffs for a third straight year and a shot at Bellwood, which already had clinched the No. 1 seed. If Glendale loses, Blairsville can sneak into the eighth spot.
Glendale needed losses by either Northern Cambria or Homer-Center for its hopes to remain alive, and Portage gave the Vikings a chance with a six-point win at Homer.
A Glendale win also would give Juniata Valley 10 extra power points to force a tie with defending champion Penns Manor for third place, and Valley would get the higher seed through opponents' winning percentage.
Portage, Penns Manor, Juniata Valley, Bishop Guilfoyle, Bishop McCort and Northern Cambria round out the 6-A field. With its win, Portage garnered the second seed and will host Northern Cambria on Friday. Juniata Valley will host either Bishop Guilfoyle or Bishop McCort on Saturday, but with the other parochial team heading to Penns Manor.
District 5's Class A bracket also was finalized. By virtue of its win over Punxsutawney and Berlin Brothersvalley's loss to Windber, Northern Bedford got the top seed and will have a bye before meeting the winner of the Shade/North Star quarterfinal game. Tussey Mountain finished sixth and will play at Windber - which got the tiebreaker for the third seed over North Star - for the right to play at Berlin in the semis.
