The chase for number one can end tonight.
The Heard County Braves took control of the Region 5-AA race with a home win over Callaway, and they can wrap up the region title with a win at Lamar County tonight.
If Heard County wins, Callaway would sew up the number two spot with a win over Spencer tonight at Memorial Stadium in Columbus.
That would leave two other playoff spots available, with four teams competing for them.
While Heard leads the region with a 3-0 record, Callaway and Spencer are tied for second at 2-1.
Temple and Lamar County are tied for fourth at 1-2, and Jordan is 0-3.
Overall record first, followed by region record:
Heard County 7-1, 3-0
Callaway 7-1, 2-1
Spencer 5-3, 2-1
Temple 5-3, 1-2
Lamar County 1-7, 1-2
Jordan 1-7, 0-3
