There has already been a conference game played in the North Star League, so a ladder (formerly, and incorrectly, referred to as a tree) is necessary.
Hillman - Augres-Sims - Atlanta - Mio - Hale
Twining Arenac Eastern
Hillman conference prediction based on this (home team wins on same rung) is 3-2
Don't worry, once teams in Tecumseh's and Gladstone's conferences start playing each other, I'll do a ladder for them, too.
