The Class B football playoffs are down to four teams: Red Lodge, Fairfield, Manhattan and Lincoln County (Eureka) – all of them with unblemished 10-0 records.
Last week, Red Lodge trounced Malta (which had defeated Jefferson a week earlier), 35-6; Lincoln County whacked Columbus, 69-30; Fairfield took Florence-Carlton, 55-20; and Manhattan got past Loyola Sacred Heart 26-7.

Eureka leads class B with 47.6 points a game on offense, while Fairfield has averaged 42.1 points a game, Red Lodge 39.7, and Manhattan 38.0. On defense, Manhattan has yielded just 8.3 points per game, Red Lodge 8.9, Fairfield 10.6, and Eureka 11.2.
