With only five games remaining in the regular season, Freeport is in a three-way battle for first place in the Class A Eastern Conference.
Not only are the Yellowjackets tied with Bishop McCort with identical 12-4-1 records, both are only one point behind first place Franklin Regional (13-4-0).
Freeport, though, might have the easier path to the title. Not only are the Yellowjackets on a 4-1-0 roll, their next two games are against a pair of sub-.500 teams in Greensburg Salem and Serra Catholic and finish with Gateway and Kiski Area.
There is only one game against a team over .500, but it’s a big one on Feb. 11 against Franklin Regional. The Yellowjackets took the first meeting between the two, 6-3, on Nov. 6.
