CINCINNATI – Cincinnati’s top Division II football teams extended their dream seasons Friday night and will square off next week on a stage they’ve never reached before – the regional championship game.

Second-seeded Mount Healthy knocked off No. 3 Winton Woods, 13-10, and top-seeded Loveland crushed No. 4 Northwest, 45-14, to put themselves one victory away from the state semifinals.

The Owls (11-1) and the Tigers (12-0) will play at 7:30 p.m. Friday at a neutral site to be announced by the OHSAA on Sunday.

Two other Cincinnati teams lost their bids to reach the regional finals Friday night.

In Division IV, McNicholas bowed to defending state champion Clinton-Massie 52-14. No. 2 Clinton-Massie meets No. 1 Alter next Friday in the regional final.

In Division VI, Summit Country Day lost to West Liberty-Salem 21-13.

Five more local teams are in action Saturday in second-round playoff  games. Here is the schedule:
