 Douglas High football finished its regular season Friday with a 46-0 loss at Spanish Springs.
The Tigers will get another game though, as Douglas will be the eight seed in the regional playoffs, starting next week.
Unofficially, Douglas looks to be in line to draw top-seeded McQueen next week to open the playoffs, playing at the Lancers’ stadium.
In their first meeting this season, McQueen bested Douglas 58-6.
All four quarterfinal games will kickoff at 6 p.m. next Friday.

Cougars too much for the Tigers
The Cougars scored on every possession in the opening half, taking a 32-0 lead into the locker room.
By the middle of the third quarter, the Cougars had started the running clock with a 39-0 lead after a three-yard touchdown run by CJ Stinson.
The Tigers had their chances to keep some drives alive, but mistakes came back to hurt Douglas.
On a 4th-and-1, a delay of game penalty forced Douglas to punt after moving the Tigers back five yards.
Three of the Cougars’ touchdown drives started in Tiger territory giving Spanish Springs a short field to work with.

Playoff outlook
Official postseason brackets will be released tomorrow by the NIAA.
Currently, four teams are sitting at 3-3 in league play between Carson, Reed, Reno and Spanish Springs.
The top four teams in the Class 5A North will also get home field advantage for the quarterfinals.
