The Salem Wildcats look to clinch a playoff berth tonight when they close out Cahokia Conference play on the road at Freeburg. The Midgets also have a lot to play for as they enter with a 5-2 record along with Salem. Freeburg can clinch at least a tie for the conference championships with a win tonight. 8th ranked Columbia and Breese Central are also both 4-1 and will each be at home with the Eagles hosting 3-2 Red Bud and the Cougars welcome 0-5 Wesclin. There is an outside chance Salem could get a piece of the title, but the top 3 teams would all have to lose at home. Listen to the action at 7pm on 100.1 FM and WJBDradio.com.
