The high school football regular season has taken a back seat as the playoffs are a few days away. And three of the four Midcoast teams who compete in either Little Ten Conference Class C or Pine Tree Conference Class B will participate.

In Eastern Class B, Camden Hills (4-4, 103.1250 Crabtree Points) finished No. 4, while Belfast (4-4, 101.5625) finished No. 5. Thus, the No. 4 Windjammers and No. 5 Lions will face off for the second straight week, but this time in the postseason with a semifinal playoff berth on the line.

Saturday night, Camden Hills traveled to Belfast to battle the Lions in the final game of the regular season and pulled out a 15-14 victory. The quarterfinal between the two local squads will be at 2 p.m. on Don Palmer Field in Rockport either Friday, Oct. 29 or Saturday, Oct. 30. Both Camden Hills boys and girls soccer quarterfinal playoffs this week will determine the day of the football playoff, and that will be decided late Wednesday afternoon. The Windjammer football and soccer teams play on the same field.

In other Eastern Class B quarterfinal playoff action, No. 1 Leavitt of Turner (8-0, 143.7500 points) will host No. 8 Morse of Bath (2-6, 84.3750 points), No. 2 Hampden Academy (7-1, 129.6875 points) will host No. 7 Waterville (3-5, 89.0625 points) and No. 3 Gardiner (6-2, 117.1875 points) will host No. 6 Mount Desert Island (4-4, 101.5625 points). The Gardiner and MDI game will be Friday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m.

In Eastern Class C, Rockland (4-4, 96.8750 points) finished No. 7, despite finishing eighth overall. Old Town (5-3, 104.6875 points), which defeated Rockland in its regular-season finale Friday night, finished seventh, but the Coyotes are not eligible to compete in the playoffs as they are an “official” Maine Principals’ Association Class B team playing down to a Class C schedule.

Thus, the Tigers rise to the No. 7 position and will play at No. 2 John Bapst of Bangor in the quarterfinals at Saturday, Oct. 30 at 1 p.m. at Cameron Stadium in Bangor. The Crusaders defeated the Tigers 26-6 in the second game of the regular season. Thus, the Tigers qualify for the playoffs in their final year of playing Rockland football (they will combine with Georges Valley as the Oceanside Mariners next fall).

While Mount View of Thorndike (1-7, 64.0625 points), the only other local football team, did not qualify for the Eastern Class C postseason, they will play at Dexter (0-8) in a non-countable game on Saturday, Oct. 30, time to be determined, to end the season. The Mustangs’ lone win of the season came over winless Dexter Sept. 11 in a 44-12 victory at Knox.

In other Eastern Class C quarterfinal action, top-seeded Stearns of Millinocket (8-0, 150.0000 points) will host No. 8 Orono (3-5, 85.9375 points), No. 3 Bucksport (5-3, 114.0625 points) will host Calais/Woodland (5-2, 104.6875 points) and No. 4 Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield (5-3, 114.0625 points) will host No. 5 Foxcroft Academy of Dover-Foxcroft (4-4, 106.2500).
