Week 7 Saturday Playoff Analysis: Group 3

Almost all the games have been played this weekend – with the exception of KIPP Cooper Norcross-Mastery Charter on Saturday and St. Joe’s Montvale-Bergen Catholic’s big clash on Sunday. The first shouldn’t have much effect on South 1 or South 2, and the Joe’s-BC game won’t affect any public schools.

With that, here’s a look at unofficial standings after games of Saturday, October 14 in Group 3, with results calculated using scores on Gridiron New Jersey as of 5:30 pm on October 14th. Note that last week, Gridiron had to fix some incorrectly-reported scores, so the information below could change.

No change for Summit, still 0.2 UPR behind Old Tappan for the overall top-seed, and fairly comfortably ahead of the third place team, now Pascack Valley, 2.6 UPR points behind. Hillside jumped two places based on Saturday’s other results, while Cranford holds in 9th.

Governor Livingston dropped to 16 after Mendham moved up from 17 to 15 with a Saturday win. Huge game for them next week vs. Bernards at home. Even a loss and they may be able to get in based on the strength of the Mountaineers in SI and residuals (GL would get 7, as residuals are capped at the first seven games.

Based on Saturday results, Carteret drops from 9th to 10th, but Somerville stays at No. 11 with a 10.6 UPR.
