CIF-SS East Valley championship game moved; my CIF championship game picks

If you haven’t already heard, the CIF-SS East Valley Division football championship game pitting Rim of the World and Ontario Christian on Friday night has been moved to Citrus Valley because of the threat of inclement weather at Rim.

Here are the games that include Inland Empire teams, the dates and times and my prediction. San Bernardino County teams in bold.

Friday’s Games
INLAND DIVISION
No. 2 Corona Centennial (12-1) at No. 1 Vista Murrieta (13–0), 7 p.m.
Prediction: Vista Murrieta 31, Corona Centennial 27
Storyline: Team from the I.E. advances into the state championship semifinals.
EASTERN DIVISION
No. 3 Serrano (13-0) at No. 1 Perris Citrus Hill (13-0), 7 p.m.
Predicton; Citrus Hill 35, Serrano 28
Storyline: Serrano can’t quite contain Citrus Hill’s explosive spread offense and the Diamondbacks drop to 1-3 in CIF-SS championship games
EAST VALLEY DIVISION
No. 1 Ontario Christian (13-0) vs. unseeded Rim of the World (11-2) at Citrus Valley HS, 7 p.m.
Prediction: Rim of the World 41, Ontario Christian 27
Storyline: Rim running back Jacob Taylor becomes the sixth back in U.S. history to go over 4,000 yards. He finishes with 4,077 yards and Rim continues its offensive roll. Rim’s tough league pays dividends.
Saturday’s Game
CENTRAL DIVISION
No. 3 Kaiser (12-1) at No. 4 Moreno Valley Rancho Verde (10-3), 7 p.m.
Prediction: Kaiser 15, Rancho Verde 14
Storyline: Kaiser coach Phil Zelaya decides to go for 2 late in the game rather than kick the extra point and a tie and go to overtime. He gets it and the Cats win the title.
