One team begins the playoffs, one team has already played, and two teams have big conference games this weekend in Western North Dakota high school football.

Last night, the St. Mary's Saints lost a close one, dropping to Bishop Ryan 14-7.

Bismarck, Century, and Mandan are all in action tonight. Bismarck welcomes Minot to town, which should be a battle. Bismarck has the top ranked offense in the state, while Minot has the top ranked defense.

Mandan hopes to end their season on a high note, after winning last week, when they welcome Century to town. Century is coming off a second straight loss last week.

Finally, Shiloh begins the 9-man playoffs this week again 7-2 St. John.
