County teams falter in football semis

Several county schools were underdogs this week, but it was still disappointing to see so many teams lose in the CIF-SS football semifinals on Friday night. Summit was the only county team that won on Friday (outside of 8-man team Joshua Springs), and the SkyHawks were playing another county team, Serrano. Going into Friday of the county teams that lost, I thought Upland had the best chance to win. As it turned out Carter played the closest game, but Carter scored a touchdown on the game’s final play to make the score closer.
