How will CIF-SS Eastern Division look? My predictions

The Eastern Division is a very tough division to predict what the bracket will be, as there are three pretty strong leagues: Mountain Pass, Mojave River and San Andreas, and two relatively weak ones: Desert Sky and River Valley. There are also 3 at-large berths. If I got those wrong, then the whole bracket is probably wron. I don’t feel that confident in this one.

Here is my prediction for the Eastern Division bracket.

Apple Valley (4-6) at No. 1 Citrus Hill (10-0)
Rialto (5-5) at Burroughs (5-5)
Moreno Valley (8-2) at San Gorgonio (8-2)
Arroyo Valley (5-4) at No. 4 Oak Hills (9-1)
La Sierra (3-7) at No. 3 Serrano (10-0)
Barstow (7-3) at Beaumont (8-2)
Tahquitz (7-3) at Norte Vista (6-4)
San Jacinto (6-4) at No. 2 Carter (10-0)
