Revised CIF-SS Eastern Prediction

It was brought to my attention by some twitter followers (@CallmeEPJ and @RyanMart12) that I had some key mistakes. Ramona got in on a coin flip ahead of La Sierra, and it was suggested CIF would avoid a rematch of San Gorgonio’s 62-0 win, but first-round rematches happen all the time. But in order to keep leagues away from each other until the semifinals, I tweaked it. I had Apple Valley in twice and another not in at all before.

Hesperia (Mojave River No. 4 at-large, 6-4) at No. 1 seed San Gorgonio (San Andreas No. 1, 10-0); Burroughs (Desert Sky No. 2, 5-5) at Tahquitz (Mountain Pass No. 2, 8-2); Rialto (San Andreas No. 3, 6-4) at Norte Vista (River Valley No. 1, 9-1); (Silverado Desert Sky No. 3, 6-4)  at No. 4 seed Oak Hills (Mojave River No. 2, 9-1); Ramona (River Valley No. 3, 4-6) at No. 3 seed Citrus Hill (Mountain Pass No. 1, 9-1); Apple Valley (Mojave River No. 3 at -large, 8-2) at Victor Valley (Desert Sky No. 1, 7-3), Carter (San Andreas No. 2, 7-3) at Moreno Valley (River Valley No. 2, 8-2), Hemet (Mountain Pass No. 3, 5-5), at No. 2 seed Serrano (Mojave River No. 1, 9-1).

CIF-SS Eastern Division prediction

One of the perhaps oddest things I enjoy doing this weekend every year is try to predict what the playoff brackets will look like. As I am very tired and bleary-eyed, I am only going to attempt 1 of those tonight.

New this year is announcing the at-large teams the night before. So perhaps I can adjust this Saturday night if their at-large teams don’t match up with mine.

Anyway, here  is my prediction on how the Eastern Division will look, provided I am correct in thinking the Mojave River will get both wild-cards: Apple Valley and Hesperia

La Sierra (River Valley No. 3, 3-7) at No. 1 seed San Gorgonio (San Andreas No. 1, 10-0); Apple Valley (Mojave River No. 3 at-large, 8-2) at Tahquitz (Mountain Pass No. 2, 8-2); Rialto (San Andreas No. 3, 6-4) at Norte Vista (River Valley No. 1, 9-1); Burroughs (Desert Sky No. 2, 5-5)  at No. 4 seed Oak Hills (Mojave River No. 2, 9-1); Hesperia (Mojave River No. 4 at-large, 6-4) at No. 3 seed Citrus Hill (Mountain Pass No. 1, 9-1); Apple Valley (Mojave River No. 3 at-large 8-2) at Victor Valley (Desert Sky No. 1, 7-3), Carter (San Andreas No. 2, 7-3) at Moreno Valley (River Valley No. 2, 8-2), Hemet (Mountain Pass No. 3, 5-5), at No. 2 seed Serrano (Mojave River No. 1, 9-1).
