Call it a playoff to get into the playoffs. If Elmwood/Plum City wins Friday's game at Clayton they will do no worse than 3-3 in the Lakeland South Conference and should get a bid to the WiAA Playoffs as they did last year with a similar record. That would make it four Pierce County teams with playoff berths. Of course EPC would still be able to clinch a bid the following week but they would prefer not to have to go into a ballgame against the state's No. 5 ranked team in Division 7 in undefeated Alma/Pepin in th elast game of the regular season with so much at stake.
