PARKERSBURG – The latest SSAC ranking were released Tuesday and Mingo Central is ranked No. 5 this week in Class AA, while Tug Valley (3-2) fell to No. 17 in Class A after a loss to No. 5 Tolsia.

It is hard to believe, but it is already the midway point in the season for high school football teams in the Mountain State.

The Miners (4-0) defeated Nitro last Friday night and are hoping to finish in the top four again this season. MCHS has already had its bye week, thus they have only played four games, while many other schools have had five contests.

The top 16 teams make the playoffs and the top eight teams host a first round game after the end of the regular season.

Tug Valley has work to do if they want to make the post season in 2016.

Mingo Central will travel to Wayne this Friday, while Tug Valley hits the road to take on Buffalo in Putnam County.

Fairmont Senior (4 – 0) holds on to the top spot in Class AA, followed by Bridgeport (5 – 0), James Monroe (4 – 0) and Point Pleasant (5 – 0).

Man is ranked No. 14 in Double A, while Chapmanville comes in at No. 17 and Logan at No. 20. The Tigers defeated the Wildcats last week to move up in the rankings, while Logan has dropped down after two straight losses.

In Class A East Hardy (4 – 0) and South Harrison (4 – 0) are tied for No. 1, followed by St. Marys (4 – 0), Buffalo (4 – 0) and then the Rebels of Tolsia.

Perennial Triple A power Martinsburg is No. 1 among the larger schools in the state, followed by Hurricane, Capital, Huntington and Spring Valley.
