Darius Hale scores 3 Touchdowns for Hodgson in win

Flight A Champion Hodgson and Flight B winner A.I. duPont are the top seeds for the DIAA Football Tournaments that begin Friday.

Hodgson earned the No. 1 seed after their 14-7 win over Middletown clinched a perfect record and the conference title.

Dover earned the other Division 1 first-round bye, on the strength of their schedule (playing Woodbridge and Archmere) outweighing Sussex Central, a team they lost to in the regular season.

A.I. duPont's two Division 1 victories helped clinch their top seed with Woodbridge's win over Delmar flipping their script, as Woodbridge will now host in the opening round, while Delmar takes the longest-possible trip between high schools in Delaware as they go to Archmere.
