Bishop LeBlond, despite a 3-3 overall record, has been boosted by good overall play and the tough Midland Empire Conference schedule, pushing the Golden Eagles to the top spot in the district standings, with 43.84 points. The Lathrop Mules, after a dominating win over North Platte on Friday night, made the move to #2 this week, with 41.33 points. Just behind the Mules, despite a head-to-head victory over Lathrop, is Lawson. The Cardinals sit at 41 points, falling in the standings after a loss at East Buchanan. Trenton is just behind the Cardinals, with the Bulldogs enjoying the combination of bonus points from playing Class 3 schools the last two weeks, along with the on-the-field victory over the Lincoln Prep Blue Tigers. The Bulldogs have 40.67 points.

Trenton was able to extend its lead over Brookfield to 4 1/2 points, with a tight, slow-scoring win at South Shelby leaving Brookfield with 36.17 points. Carrollton is sixth in the standings, followed by Lexington and Plattsburg.

If the season ended today, the quarterfinal games in District 8 would be:

Plattsburg at Bishop LeBlond
Lexington at Lathrop
Carrollton at Lawson
Brookfield at Trenton

Three weeks remains in the regular season, with Trenton hosting a very tough Illini West team this Friday night at 6 o'clock at C.F. Russell Stadium. Trenton will travel to play AT KIRKSVILLE on Friday, October 18th, and host the Concordia Orioles on Friday, October 25th. Brookfield finishes the season with a home game this week against the Clarence Cannon Conference leading Palmyra Panthers, a road trip to Macon on October 18th, and a visit from Clark County to Burlington Field on October 25th. Lawson, in the teeth of the KCI Conference championship race, will finish the season with a home game against powerful Hamilton this Friday, a road trip to Mid-Buchanan on October 18th, and a home game against West Platte on October 25th. Lathrop's final three games will be at home against Plattsburg, followed by road games at East Buchanan and Mid-Buchanan, while LeBlond's slate sends the Eagles across town to play Benton this week, Lafayette next week, with Savannah coming to LeBlond on October 25th.
