With their wins this week, three teams–SPASH, CMH, DSHA–have punched their tickets to the state semi-finals to be held 10/18-10/19. Of those teams, only CMH has clinched home field advantage for the first round of the playoffs. SPASH will have to wait for the outcome of the Week 5 match-ups to determine if they will be heading to Kettle Moraine or DSHA for the first round. Hamilton’s win over Pulaski give them an outside chance of sneaking into the state semi-finals, but that depends on the outcome of the Week 5 Pulaski-Kettle Moraine game, the two other teams looking to claim the last spot in the semi-finals.
