MSHSL Section Football Brackets Released
The Faribault Falcons are the #3 seed in Section 2AAAA while the Bethlehem Academy Cardinals were awarded #3 seed in Section 1A. That more than likely means the Cardinals will be searching for a field to hold their game with Hayfield.
Earlier this season BA was supposed to host a game with Hayfield but it was moved to Monday and Hayfield was the site for the contest.
Section 2AAAA is loaded with quality teams. There are no teams with a losing record in the section.
Faribault finished the regular season with a 5-3 record. Their losses were all against state ranked teams and they were competitive in each one.
#1 seed Hutchinson (7-1), #2 Willmar (6-2), #4 Jordan (5-3), #5 St. Peter (5-5) #6 Marshall (4-4).

The winner of that game goes to Willmar on Saturday with a 3:00 p.m. kickoff scheduled which would mean we can't broadcast the game due to MIAC college football commitments on POWER 96 and KDHL Radio.
