DAR/Brian Rosener

Jackson, Kennett and Hayti all kept their positions in the Missouri football state media rankings released Monday.

Jackson, ranked No. 3 in Class 5, will face another ranked opponent Friday when the Indians travel to Fox (5-0), No. 8 in Class 6. The Warriors handed Class 4 No. 9 St. Dominic a 42-10 loss while Jackson won 71-0 at Sikeston.

Hayti (4-0) is ranked No. 2 in Class 1 after winning 64-38 over New Madrid Central. The Indians, who host Charleston this week, are averaging 53.5 points per game.

Kennett (5-0), No. 5 in Class 3, has not allowed more than 13 points in a game all season and the Indians will host New Madrid Central this week after winning at East Prairie 51-6.

Class 3 and Class 6 each have new No. 1 teams this week.

Valle Catholic moved from No. 4 to the top spot in Class 3 following a 35-28 home win over previously No. 1 Blair Oaks.

In Class 6, Raymor-Peculiar dropped from the top spot to No. 5 following a 34-27 loss to Lee’s Summit West, which moved up three spots to No. 3 with the win. Liberty moved up to the top spot followed by Nixa as both undefeated teams won big against winless opponents.

In Class 5, North Kansas City dropped five spots following a 25-22 overtime loss to Staley. Top-ranked Carthage and second-ranked Webb City, both defending state champs, each won.

Farmington (5-0) gave the SEMO North two ranked opponents in Class 5. The Knights will travel to Poplar Bluff this week before facing three state-ranked opponents to end the regular season — at Jackson (Oct. 9), vs. Festus (Oct. 16) and at Park Hills Central (Oct. 23), which moved into the rankings at No. 10 in Class 3.

In Class 4, Festus moved up a spot to No. 5 as Smithville lost to Class 5 No. 7 Platte County 28-7 while the top four teams all won.
