Postseason chase heating up (north teams)

The North is 3-17 against the South so far this year.

...But as Week 5 of the eight-week regular-season gridiron grind approaches the competition is heating up, too. Even so, little is certain about which teams in the state’s North region will emerge atop their divisions come playoff time as seemingly many more programs than usual remain in position to challenge for postseason berths.

Credit that in part to a changing of the guard in some divisions. Defending Class D state champion Maine Central Institute of Pittsfield is now in Class C while 2016 Class B state champion Brunswick and defending Class A North title holder Portland are both 0-4.

Perhaps of even more significance is a new scheduling format that matches opponents of similar status with each other more often during conference play, along with similarly tiered crossover schedules that provide teams in Classes B, C and D competitive out-of-conference opponents from different regions or classes. ... eating-up/
