Pennsylvania Football Playoff Territory Map, Quarterfinal Round

It’s hard to believe, but we are down to just eight teams (seven in 6A) remaining in each classification in the state. Last week, we unveiled our playoff territory maps with the help of Gus (@SportsPSD), a good friend of PFH. As a reminder, Gus is a tremendous resource for any programs looking to redesign their helmets or uniforms for next year, so be sure to reach out if you’d like your program to have a fresh look in 2021.

This week will feature the biggest changes of the playoffs as each classification lost eight teams from last weekend. Let’s take a look:

CLASS 6A

Last week’s map:

This week’s map:

Altoona’s dominance of Central PA was split up after the Mountain Lions fell to Delaware Valley. Central York and Pittsburgh Central Catholic ate into Altoona’s former space while St. Joe’s Prep added Chester County despite not playing last weekend.

CLASS 5A

Last week’s map:

This week’s map:

One of last week’s busiest maps cleared up considerably following last weekend’s action. Cathedral Prep, Pine-Richland and Peters Township stack atop one another in Western PA and the southeastern corner of the state is much more orderly. While Warwick was forced to forfeit this week’s game to Governor Mifflin, they’re still included in this map because they “earned” the territory shown for this week by beating New Oxford.

CLASS 4A

Last week’s map:

This week’s map:

With one notable exception, every game in 4A this weekend features teams whose territories border one another. Oil City and Upper Moreland, however, couldn’t be located further apart on this map and will meet in Hollidaysburg for the right to go to the state semifinals. The WPIAL final between Aliquippa and Thomas Jefferson figures to be one of the state’s most highly-anticipated games and will dictate who controls the southwestern corner of this map.

CLASS 3A

Last week’s map:

This week’s map:

One major change on the 3A map involves the Philadelphia area. The map was created prior to Neumann-Goretti being forced to forfeit due to COVID, so Archbishop Carroll took its place and will play at Danville this weekend. Lots of territory in Western PA is on the table this weekend as Hickory plays Bedford and Central Valley meets Elizabeth-Forward for the WPIAL title.

CLASS 2A

Last week’s map:

This week’s map:

Last week’s frenetic 2A map became quite organized following the first round games. Southern Columbia dominates Northeastern PA and Beaver Falls controls only Beaver and Butler Counties, but the rest of the teams have roughly equal chunks of the commonwealth.

CLASS 1A

Last week’s map:

This week’s map:

In the first round, the 1A map represented a quilt of little fiefdoms, but those consolidated greatly following the games played last weekend. A devil and a steamroller control all of Eastern PA, while this week’s Reynolds-Redbank Valley and Clairton-Jeannette games will sort out the west. Homer-Center controls only its home county of Indiana, but that would change if they could knock off Bishop Guilfoyle.
