Daily Herald report

Harvard (1-7, 0-5) at Burlington Central (2-6, 2-3)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Quick hit: Improving Burlington Central has won 2 of its last 3 games, highlighted by last week's offensive eruption against Marengo (5-3) in a 38-7 victory. Sophomore quarterback Johnny DiCostanzo completed 10 of 14 passes for 281 yards without an interception. He threw 3 touchdown passes, including scoring plays of 96 and 36 yards to junior wide receiver Michael Kalusa.

Westminster Christian (5-3, 5-3) at Alden-Hebron (3-5, 3-5)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Quick hit: Westminster Christian already has 36 playoff points. The projected cutoff for 5-4 teams to make the postseason is 36, so the Warriors will make their second straight playoff appearance win or lose. However, a victory would match last season's 6-3 regular-season record. Seniors Xavier Brown and Scott Graziano are tied for the area lead with 4 interceptions.

Ottawa (1-7) at Kaneland (3-5)

When: 7 p.m. Friday

Quick hit: Win or lose, the Knights fall short of the playoffs for the second time in three years and only the third time in coach Tom Fedderly's 10 seasons. Kaneland has won at least 4 games every year since a 1-8 finish in 1993-94.
