Despite perfect mark, Somerville can’t pull a top seed in mock South 3 playoff brackets

Somerville’s lack of strong opponents – at least according to the state’s OSI and power points formulas – would have kept the Pioneers from garnering a top seed in either of the South Group 3 brackets.

In calculations done by Central Jersey Sports Radio all year long, Somerville would finish a solid third in the 16-team supersection, ranking third in both power points and OSI. They are the only Big Central team to actually be in the supersection.

Somerville would get a second seed in a hypothetical South 3 bracket, and home games guaranteed for at least the first two rounds.

Below are the overall standings and hypothetical brackets for the South Group 3 supersection:
