EMPORIA, Kan. - Holton, Andale and Hugoton are the only undefeated teams in class 4A, but there should still be some great match-ups before the final game.
Ulysses (5-4) at Wellington (6-3)
Wellington survived a scare last weekend at Chaparral, and survived a weak district. Ulysses was in a tough district and played a tough schedule all season, if there is going to be an early round upset, it will happen here.
Prediction: Ulysses 27-17
Buhler (8-1) at Colby (7-2)
Buhler had an unfortunate loss late in district play, while Colby swept through their district. Buhler should be able to overcome the higher seeded home team.
Prediction: Buhler 35-17
