Week 10 is in the books in Virginia high school football, which means the playoff picture is in focus. Here are the official matchups for the first round of the region playoffs in Virginia, which get underway Friday around the state.

Virginia 6A North

In: Centreville (10-0), Lake Braddock (10-0), Westfield (8-2), Washington-Lee (8-2), Langley (8-2), Patriot (8-2), Yorktown (8-2), South County (8-2), T.C. Williams (6-3), Fairfax (7-3), Robinson (7-3), Battlefield (6-3), Stonewall Jackson (6-4), Hayfield (27.8), Chantilly (5-5), South Lakes (5-5)

Skinny: The 6A North field is set. T.C. Williams’s 24-14 win against West Potomac on Saturday handed South Lakes the final spot and eliminated the Wolverines.

Virginia 6A South

Skinny: This field is all set; late snubs include Fredericksburg’s Riverbend (37-27 losers to Colonial Forge) and James River (6-4). Woodbridge (6-4) clinched a berth with its 19-6 win over Gar-Field on Friday… Forest Park (7-3) lost its chance to host a first-round matchup with yesterday’s 28-12 loss to Hylton (9-1).

Here are the first-round matchups (higher seeds host):

No. 2 Ocean Lakes vs. No. 7 Woodside

No. 3 Western Branch vs. No. 6 Frank W. Cox

No. 4 Grassfield vs. No. 5 Tallwood

Virginia 5A North

Skinny: Despite a 20-19 loss to Hayfield, Edison just squeaked into the field ahead of Brooke Point to grab the 16th and final spot. How close was it? According to our calculations, the Eagles finished with a 21.6 point rating — as a result of the bonus points they gained by playing 6A Hayfield — while Brooke Point finished with 21.5, following a Friday loss to 5A North top seed Massaponax.

Here are the first-round matchups (higher seeds host):

No. 1 Massaponax (10-0) vs. No. 16 Edison (3-7)

No. 2 Stone Bridge (8-2) vs. No. 15 Lee (2-8)

No. 3 Briar Woods (9-1) vs. No. 14. Potomac Falls (4-5)

No. 4 Tuscarora (8-2) vs. No. 13. Mount Vernon (3-7)

No. 5 North Stafford (8-2) vs. No. 12 Jefferson (4-5)

No. 6 Mountain View (7-3) vs. No. 11. Potomac (4-6)

No. 7 Broad Run (7-3) vs. No. 10 Freedom-Woodbridge (4-6)

No. 8 Falls Church (7-3) vs. No. 9 Albemarle (6-4)

Virginia 4A North

Skinny: The field is set. Heritage barely missed the postseason. The Pride’s 28-7 upset of Loudoun County gave them a 20.2 rating (according to our calculations), which was not enough to catch Amherst County (20.8).

Here are the first-round matchups (higher seeds host):

No. 1 Sherando (9-1) vs. No. 16 Amherst County (3-7)

No. 2 Salem (8-2) vs. No. 15 Fauquier (5-5)

No. 3 Courtland (8-2) vs. No. 14 Glass (4-6)

No. 4 Eastern View (9-1) vs. No. 13 Pulaski County (4-6)

No. 5 George Washington (9-1) vs. No. 12 Charlottesville (5-5)

No. 6 Woodgrove (7-3) vs. No. 11 Loudoun County (5-5)

No. 7 King George (9-2) vs. No. 10 Dominion (6-4)

No. 8 Handley (7-3) vs. No. 9 Liberty (6-4)

Virginia 3A North

Skinny: Loudoun Valley and Champe will be the area teams in next week’s playoffs. Champe nearly fell out of the top 16 with a Week 10 loss to Park View, but the Knights hung on for the No. 16 seed (17.7 point rating). Culpeper County barely missed knocking out Champe with a 17.5 rating. The Vikings will have home field advantage through the semifinals, should they advance that far.

Here are the first-round matchups (higher seeds host):

No. 1 Lafayette (10-0) vs. No. 16 Champe (2-8)

No. 2 Loudoun Valley (8-2) vs. No. 15 Spotsylvania (3-7)

No. 3 Central (8-2) vs. No. 14 William Monroe (3-7)

No. 4 Kettle Run (6-4) vs. No. 13 Thomas Jefferson (3-7)

No. 5 James Monroe (6-4) vs. No. 12 Skyline (4-6)

No. 6 Poquoson (7-3) vs. No. 11 Armstong (3-7)

No. 7 Hopewell (5-5) vs. No. 10 Petersburg (4-7)

No. 8 Warren County (7-3) vs. No. 9 Park View (7-4)
