Here are the top three finishers from Pools 1 and 2 played Friday a.m. The top three from each pool (and one 4th-place team) move on to tomorrow’s 16-team championship bracket
Pool 1: 1. Claremont, 2. Santa Fe, 3. Perris
Pool 2: 1. Villa Park, 2. Charter Oak, 3. Northwood
Pool 3: 1. Crespi, 2. Summit, 3. LaSalle
Pool 4: 1. Culver City, 2. Etiwanda, 3. St. Francis
Pool 5: 1. Muir, 2. Southeast, 3. Silverado
*Chino Hills makes tourney as wild-card team.
Aram’s take: Whatchu say Mustangs, Whatchu Mustangs? Muir wins Pool 5 (was a tie, ‘Stangs got the ‘breaker). Who saw that coming? Charter Oak not winning its pool is a minor shock. But the Chargers qualified for Saturday’s big dance, so that’s all that matters. Claremont, as expected, cruised in its pool.
