Mid-Buchanan ends regular season No. 1 in Class 1

·4 min read

Oct. 26—Mid-Buchanan beat three teams ranked in the top 10 in Class 1 during the regular season, enough to vault the Dragons to No. 1 in the Missouri Media football rankings heading into the playoffs.

Mid-Buch received six of 10 first-place votes and is tied with 2020 champion Windsor atop the rankings. Both teams, which faced off in last year's title game, received 92 points.

The Dragons (9-0) capped the season with a win at then-No. 8 West Platte on Friday, 28-12. Mid-Buch also beat two KCI foes when they were ranked in No. 9 Hamilton and No. 5 East Buchanan.

The Bulldogs (8-1) enter the postseason with a lone loss to Mid-Buch and as the No. 5 team in the state, the top one-loss team. West Platte, the No. 4 seed in a district with University Academy, Mid-Buch and East Buch, is ranked No. 9. Hamilton received the most votes of any team not ranked.

No other area teams received votes.

The final set of rankings will be released following the conclusion of the playoffs.
