The 9-Man football programs for Central McLean and Richardton-Taylor-Hebron made incredible one-year turnarounds to make the state playoffs this season.
Both teams are in Region 5.
Central McLean went from a 3-5 record in 2017 and missing the postseason to 5-3 this season and earning the No. 4 seed.
Central McLean had to earn their way ticket the old fashion. Last week, they defeated Beach, who they were tied with for the fourth and final playoff spot.
On Saturday, Central McLean will travel to Towner for a date with the T-G-U Titans at 2:30 p.m.
Like Central McLean, Richardton-Taylor-Hebron went from posting a losing record last year to a winning record this season.
In 2017, the Raiders finished the season winning their last game of the year, which was their only win during the campaign. This season with a senior-heavy team, Richardton-Taylor went 5-3 and will get to host a playoff game on Saturday.
The Raiders will face Divide County at 1 p.m. Central Time.
