Iowa City Regina has a district title in its sights.

To see it through, the Regals will have to beat the top-ranked team. On the road.

Dike-New Hartford remains on top of a stacked Class 1A field in this week’s Gazette/KGYM football poll. The Wolverines are one of seven remaining unbeatens in the class.

The top four teams remain the same in all six classes. West Des Moines Valley (4A), Western Dubuque (3A), Waukon (2A), West Hancock (Class A) and Don Bosco (8-Player) join DNH in holding their top spots.

Valley and co-No. 2 Cedar Falls are the only two big-school teams that are 8-0. Cedar Falls shares the No. 2 slot with West Des Moines Dowling; Ankeny Centennial and Cedar Rapids Kennedy are fourth and fifth.

All of the top five teams in 3A are from Eastern Iowa. Western Dubuque has been on top all season and is followed by Solon, Cedar Rapids Xavier, North Scott and Independence.

Waukon has led 2A since the preseason. Clear Lake is second, followed by Algona. No. 4 Greene County plays at No. 5 Ida Grove OABCIG on Friday.

The Regina-DNH battle is one of two in 1A that matches a pair of ranked teams (Regina is No. 10). Eighth-rated West Lyon hosts No. 3 Western Christian was a district title on the line.

Van Meter is No. 2 in 1A; West Branch is fourth, South Central Calhoun fifth.

In Class A, West Hancock is followed by Saint Ansgar, North Tama, MFL MarMac and Grundy Center. MFL MarMac kept its dream season rolling with a 28-23 victory over Edgewood-Colesburg; the Bulldogs are 8-0 for the first time in school history.
