Citrus Valley lost to El Dorado 2-1 in the CIF-SS Division 3 championship game. Here is the highlight video, including a goal that was disallowed. What do you think?
So, after going 6-6 picking winners for the CIF-SS quarterfinals, I had a much better semifinal round. I went 6-1. The only game I got wrong was Aquinas. Of course, it took an incredible rally by Aquinas to force overtime and then win.
For the season, I am 189-74-1. I have 8 margins exactly right and 1 score exactly right. I’m not rooting for teams to win or lose. But if I’m always picking local teams to win, I lose credibility as an unbiased observer.
One interesting note:
Silverado’s opponent, Cerritos Valley Christian and Aquinas’ opponent, Long Beach St. Anthony, played each other in a nonleague game Week 5. Valley Christian, playing at home, won 46-35.
