Higher-slotted teams win home-field edge for semifinals

Teams slotted higher on the bracket will be at home next week when same-seeded teams meet in the semifinals, the GHSA determined Monday by conducting a universal coin toss.

That coincidentally gave home-field advantage to all seven remaining No. 1-ranked teams – Hughes, Ware County, Cedartown, Cedar Grove, Fitzgerald, Prince Avenue Christian and Bowdon – if they advance this week in their quarterfinal games.

When teams are not equally seeded, the higher-seeded team gets home field until the neutral-field championship games Dec. 8-10 at Georgia State’s Center Parc Stadium.

Brackets with seeds can be found on the GHSA’s website.
