Notes: Point Pleasant can secure a Class AAA playoff spot this Friday night with a victory over visiting Chapmanville.

The Big Blacks have won three straight decisions and own a 2-1 record in home contests this fall. PPHS is also outscoring opponents by a 319-116 overall margin, including a 143-20 edge during its current three-game win streak. The Tigers are currently tied with Oak Glen for 26th place in the Class AA ratings, meaning this will be the final game of the season for CHS. Chapmanville has lost two straight and owns a 1-3 road record this fall. The Tigers have been outscored 253-187 overall this fall.
