And in Hager City at Brown Field, it's Ellsworth-Prescott III, the championship of the Division 2 regional tournament. The top two seeds in the regional are also both ranked in the top five in the state with idenetical 17-3 overall records but one will go on to the sectional tournament next Tuesday in Altoona at Bement Field in Cinder City Park. Last spring Ellsworth edged Prescott in the regional championship game onwards to the state tournament and this afternoon's winner may do so again. However, that team's most likely sectional semifinal opponent is No. 9 ranked Viroqua, which plays in a regional final today against West Salem. That semifinal game would be at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

The other regional title games in the sectional bracket have Hayward vs. Ashland and Somerset vs. Osceola. 

If Spring Valley wins they will play in the sectional tournament to be held in Cumberland at Islander Park. The host Beavers are ranked No. 2 in Division 3 and play in regional championship game today as well against Luck/Frederic. Other D-3 title games in the sectional bracket pit Chequamegon vs. Phillips and Chetek-Weyerhaeuser vs. Stanley-Boyd. SV would also play at 1:30 p.m in the sectional semis against either Chetek-Weyerhaesuer or S-B if they win today.
