Area Football: It's October, time to talk playoffs


Last Friday’s 20-12 loss to Eveleth-Gilbert was a hard way to celebrate homecoming for the Crosby-Ironton Rangers.

It hurt more Saturday morning when the Rangers saw what happened to their top seed in the Section 6-2A standings.

The Rangers dropped to third in a section that seeds off the Quality Results Formula (QRF). They are behind Holdingford (No. 16) and the current top-seeded Pierz (No. 15).
