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).

Week 9 Prep football predictions recap

For Week 9, I went 27-7, and got one margin exactly right, giving me 6 for the year in which I’ve had the right margin and the right winner.I said Jurupa HIlls would win 28-17 and the Spartans won 31-20.  It wasn’t as goot as the week before, when I missed only two games, going 26-2. I am now 247-62 for the season.
