You voted, and here are the results.

We asked you to pick the winners of each Long Island high school football playoff game last weekend. Below are the voting results after the smoke settled on Monday morning, along with the actual game results.

A few fun facts from the data:

- Overall, readers went 25-6, with one tie in the voting (Long Beach-Carey). That equates to a winning percentage of 80.6%.

- Readers correctly predicted North Babylon's 35-14 upset over Smithtown East.

- Readers predicted upsets in the Smithtown West-East Islip game and the Island Trees-Roosevelt game. In both instances, the higher seed (East Islip, Roosevelt) prevailed.

- Readers did not predict upsets by Sachem East (6), West Babylon (8), Mercy (5) or Massapequa (5).

- Out of 146 votes cast, only 17 people correctly predicted that eighth-seeded West Babylon would upend top-seeded West Islip, which made for the largest percentage differential between two teams in an upset (76.8%).
