According to Mercer County football coach Nat Zunkel, the Golden Eagles will host Clifton Central in the Class 2A state semifinal at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday afternoon. Mercer County will host the game at George Pratt Memorial Field.

Despite the Golden Eagles being a two seed in their quadrant and Clifton Central holding the top spot in its respective one, Mercer County hosts the game. Since both teams are in separate playoff quadrants and each hosted two playoff games, the first tiebreaker is victories. Mercer County had one more than Clifton Central.

Alleman athletic director Steve Smithers said the IHSA will set the date and time for the Pioneers' Class 4A state semifinal at Evergreen Park today. Neither side could come to a mutual agreement, so the IHSA will make the final decision.
