Rose HillClinches playoffs only if Rose Hill beats Mulvane by at least 20 points and Ulysses beats Wellington by at least 20 points. UlyssesClinches District with win over Wellington. WLPoints Class 4A District 7 Wellington115 Mulvane110 Rose Hill02-33 MulvaneClinches District with at least 17 point victory over Rose Hill and a Wellington victory over Ulysses provided both teams’ totals are lower than Mulvane’s. Clinches District with less than 7 point loss to Wellington. Scenario:Â Clinches playoff berth provided it stays in front of Mulvane if it loses to Wellington by 12 or more points. by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” Ok, after studying the various tie breaking scenarios, it appears that the Wellington football team can go to Ulysses this Friday and win and NOT make the playoffsâ€¦Or it could lose to Ulysses and still go to the playoffs. It is a wacky scenario based on tie breaking points in District 7 that includes Wellington, Ulysses, Mulvane and Rose Hill.Last Friday, when Mulvane went into victory formation late in the game against Wellington after securing an apparent 14-7 victory, Mulvane coach Dave Fennewald didnâ€™t do his team any favors. It could come back to haunt the Wildcats because they failed to secure additional points.Remember, Wellingtonâ€™s Connor Phelps late 9 yard touchdown late against Rose Hill two weeks ago? That gave Wellington seven points to work with because the Crusaders won by 13 instead of 6.Confused? We havenâ€™t even started. Just remember this. District 7 will take a champion and a runner-up to battle District 8 teams in the first round of the Class 4A Division 1 playoffs. Despite Fridayâ€™s loss, Wellington still has a good chance of being one of those two teams. Hereâ€™s how:Wellingtonâ€™s best hope is to beat Ulysses, obviously. But how much it beats the Tigers will determine its playoff fate. Thatâ€™s because Mulvane will be playing for points against Rose Hill as well. If Mulvane wins and Wellington wins that will set up a three-way tie. Then points will determine the tiebreaker. The team with the most points (based on teamâ€™s margin of victory) will be crowned the district champion and the next highest point total will go into the playoffs as runner-up.The lowest point total team in the three-way race will no longer be playing football.Right now Ulysses is in the driverâ€™s seat with 28 points and a 2-0 record. Wellington has 5 points at 1-1 while Mulvane is at 0 at 1-1. The Wildcats have more ground to make up than the other two. But it is also playing 0-2 Rose Hill, who is mathematically alive by the slimmest of margins.Wellington can also fall into a three-way tie with Mulvane and Rose Hill, if it loses and Rose Hill wins. The same point total scenario will determine the tiebreaker. Even if Wellington loses, if it can keep it close with Ulysses then it could slip into the playoffs.Here is the District 7 standings and the various playoff scenarios. We will have a quiz shortly. Ulysses2028 Clinches District with 12 point win over Ulysses and 16 point or less Mulvane win over Rose Hill. Clinches playoff berth with 11 point and under win over Ulysses and stays 4 points in front of Mulvane in win over Rose Hill.* Clinches playoff berth with loss to Rose Hill and Ulysses win over Wellington providing both totals of Rose Hill and Ulysses are less than Mulvane’s. Follow us on Twitter. WellingtonClinches District with win over Ulysses and Rose Hill win over Mulvane. Clinches playoff berth with less than 12 point loss to Wellington. Clinches playoff berth with win over Rose Hill and Ulysses win over Wellington. *This can get convoluted. Let’s say Wellington beats Ulysses by 5 points. But if Mulvane beats Rose Hill by 10 points it will overtake Wellington in point totals leaving the Crusaders out of the playoffs. Clinches playoff with loss to Ulysses and Rose Hill victory over Mulvane provided it stays 4 points in front of Mulvane AND not let Rose Hill overtake it in points. Close Forgot password?

Ulysses is 2-0 with +20 Rose Hill is 0-2 with -25. Mulvane and Wellington are correct. Wellington needs to win by 8 points to secure a playoff spot. If they win by 9 they are District 7 Champs.

The rivalry is alive and well in the Bissell family. You did an article about my wife Cindy and I several years ago. We are celebrating our 31st anniversary in November and 36 years of being together as a couple. I am pulling for the crusaders but Ian Rudzik from Ulysses is a beast. His dad Chance Rudzik is a personal friend of the family. He is best friends with my wife’s little brother. Good luck to the Dukes and I hope they give them a butt whoopin like we did in 1979.

The county received eight bids for the project, with the highest at about $1.6 million. The county had estimated the project to cost $900,000 to $1 million.The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will reimburse the county 80 percent of the cost, or about $705,342, with the county and Atlantic Highlands splitting the remaining 20 percent, or about $88,168 each.The trail has remained open, but in what the Park System has described as a “primitive condition” of compacted soil. During the re-construction, that portion of the trail is to be closed.The Henry Hudson Trail runs for about 28 miles, using a combination of roads and unused railroad right-of-ways between Sandy Hook and Freehold. From Sandy Hook to Aberdeen, the trail also is known as the Bayshore Trail. By Joseph SapiaAN OCEAN COUNTY company has won a contract to restore an Atlantic Highlands section of the Henry Hudson Trail destroyed in 2012’s Super Storm Sandy.The Monmouth County Board of Recreation Commissioners recently awarded the contract to the low-bidder, Compass Construction of Plumsted. Compass bid $881,677.In October 2012, Sandy’s 14-foot surge destroyed the wooden walkway and trail surfacing, along with the bluff, on a 1-1/4-mile section of the trail from the Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor to Popamora Point on the Atlantic Highlands-Highlands boundary. The restoration work will include diverting runoff to Sandy Hook Bay under the trail to protect against erosion, resurfacing the trail with both pavement and stone dust, and rebuilding the walkway with prefabricated concrete.The work is to be completed in 100 days, but the actual start date, expected to be in September or October, has yet to be determined, said Joseph Sardonia, supervising landscape architect for the Monmouth County Park System.
