Here is a final ranking of the regular season:

1. West De Pere (8-0): The Phantoms clinched the Bay Conference outright with a 36-9 win at Hortonville. It’s the seventh straight league title for West De Pere, which will enter the WIAA Division 3 playoffs on a 36-game winning streak.

2. Green Bay Southwest (8-0): The Trojans clinched the Fox River Classic Conference title with a 21-13 win over Bay Port. Southwest earned a No. 1 seed in the D2 playoffs and will host Oshkosh North on Saturday.
