What We Learned on Friday Night...and What We're Waiting On

We're halfway through the final group of regular season games and a few things have officially fallen into place now. A few teams clinched divisional titles and sectional berths and we even have a pretty good idea of who will be playing who in the quarterfinals next week.

Now, keep in mind that the OFFICIAL seedings aren't released until Sunday, so this is just my math. I'm pretty sure it's right, but there's my disclaimer.

Under the cut, check out who's in, who's out and what's still up in the air.

Class AA
Empire Division 
CBA - Clinched the divisional title last week.
Saratoga Springs - After winning only six games in the last two seasons combined, the Blue Streaks clinched a home playoff game next week after topping Guilderland.
Guilderland - Back-to-back divisional losses, put the Dutchmen at the No. 3 seed heading into sectionals, making them potential postseason road warriors.
Shenenedhowa - Matthew Drum's 33 yard touchdown reception with 1:40 left to play, gave the Plainsmen a 21-14 victory over Bethlehem and a No. 4 seed
Liberty League
Shaker - The Blue Bison won another Colonie Cup and clinched their second straight Liberty League title with a 49-6 showing against Colonie.
Colonie - Lost to Shaker at home on Friday night, but week six's victory over La Salle keeps the Garnet Raiders at the No. 2 seed and gives them a  home game next week.
La Salle - Despite losing the Sabre to CBA on Friday, the Cadets were already locked in to their No. 3 seed.
Columbia - The Blue Devils clinched a no. 4 sectional seed with Friday's 48-32 victory over Schenectady.
Crossover Games
Ballston Spa // Albany // Schenectady // Niskayuna

Class A
Queensbury - Clinched the No. 1 seed last week
Burnt Hills - Cruised to a victory over Amsterdam on Friday and will host a home playoff game against Mohonasen this week with the No. 2 seed.
Amsterdam - An earlier win over Gloversville this season gives the Rugged Rams the tie breaker and the No. 3 seed.
Gloversville - Will most likely take on Troy on the road next week thanks to the No. 4 seed.
Troy - Clinched the No. 1 seed last week.
Averill Park -Will host Amsterdam this Friday night with their No. 2 seed.
Mohonasen - The victory over Bishop Maginn gives the Warriors  the No. 3 seed
Bishop Maginn - The Griffins still make the postseason despite zero divisional win.s
Crossover Games
South Glens Falls

Class B
Reinfurt Divison
Cohoes - Can clinch the No. 1 seed, and their first playoff berth since 2009, with a victory over Ichabod Crane this afternoon.
Ravena - A win over Green Tech this afternoon would give the Indians a No. 2 seed. Even if they lose, Ravena should still be two thanks to quarter points.
Lansingburgh - Friday night's victory against Albany Academy gave the Knights the No. 3 seed and kept their postseason appearance streak alive.
Green Tech - Secured their first-every sectional berth thanks to Lansingburgh's win on Friday, but will probably get Schalmont with their No. 4 seed.
West Division
Schalmont - Clinched the division last week.
Broadalbin-Perth - Were pretty much locked into the No. 2 last week, so they'll get 'Burgh at home in the quarterfinals.
Scotia - Wrapped up the No. 3 seed with Friday night's 42-14 victory over Glens Falls.
Glens Falls - The Indians make the tournament, despite a week seven loss, thanks to a tie-breaker with Cobleskill earlier in the season.

Albany Academy // Hudson // Ichabod Crane // Schuylerville // Johnstown // Hudson Falls

Corinth - Despite Friday's victory, the Tomahawks are still looking at a No. 2 seed and a home playoff game next week. 
Stillwater - The Warriors' victory in the Indian Bowl on Friday night, notched them a No. 3 seed heading inot sectionals.
Granville - The Golden Horde still make the posteason, with the No. 4 seed, thanks to quarter points over Mechanicville.
