CIF Regional Bowl Games: Is it win or you’re in for Monrovia, Rio ? That depends on who you ask….

Monrovia and Rio Hondo Prep will be looking to add to the CIF-Southern Section championship showcase Friday when they each play in division title games. Monrovia is seeking its third consecutive Mid-Valley title, while Rio Hondo Prep is seeking its second consecutive Northeast championship and its 14 CIF-SS title overall.
Both are also in the running for region bowl bids. Cal-Hi Sports believes if both win, their in. Max Preps believes each will be a little more.
If both teams win on Friday, they’ll find out their fate on Sunday when pairings for the five region bowls are announced.

    Steve you need to broaden your horizons…. Corona del Mar would wipe the ranking you have in III,!V and did you just add Garden Grove as well because they play for the title at Anaheim Stadium on Saturday before the Poly~ Mater Dei battle….? Come on man get outside the SG valley man!

    Wasco is now 13 and 0 — Avg win was 43.8 points, I cant see the CIF not giving the a bowl bid, who should join them?

      Look at who they played….Their Section Finals foe lost to Ontario Christian…I came down to who Monrovia beat to win their title. If you beat the number one team like Monrovia did you deserve to go.
