CIF-SS football pairings: Arroyo, San Dimas, Diamond Ranch earn top seeds


The CIF-SS football playoff pairings are posted, enjoy.

CIF-FOOTBALL PAIRINGS STORY: In the hope of reaching the CIF-Southern Section Mid-Valley Division championship game, Mission Valley League champion Arroyo and Valle Vista League champion San Dimas got its wish, earning the No. 2 and 3 seeds respectively following the release of the CIF-SS Divisional pairings on Sunday.
Both schools did not want to be on the same side of the bracket as three-time defending champion Monrovia, who earned the No. 1 seed. And if seeds hold true to form, Arroyo and San Dimas could meet in a highly anticipated semifinal game, though there is a lot of work to get there.

    If these end up being the pairings that are announced tomorrow then there will be some very exciting games. Diamond Bar vs La Serna will be something else a high scoring game where both offenses can score in mere seconds. El Rancho vs Los Altos will be a tough physical game that will be fought till the end. Downey vs La Mirada will show just how good La Mirada is or how good Downey will be down the stretch.

  • Football fan

    This make no sense and I believe CV will get in over WC. Why would a lower at large team play a lower rated team. This doesn’t make sense. An at large berth would play a higher rated team like norwalk or la serna. I guess we wait and see but really that scenario doesn’t make sense

    • GP AKA Green Machine

      The pacific league is not very strong. Glendale, Hoover, Arcadia, and Pasadena were not good. There are probably 3 teams in the Hacienda, that could win that league. If you take out Muir, Burbank the second best team would finish fourth in the hacienda. I would take WC over CV. They are a better football team. They played a tough preseason and should get in.

      • PatrickHT

        Ill 2nd that!

  • Valley Athletics

    I can see West Covina going over la crescenta . Preseason schedule strength and overall league strength will trump overall record which is only worth a point . Westco played a PAC 5 team and division 2 team which will help them .

    • FredJ

      that is exactly right

  • FredJ

    When factoring in tiebreak scenarios, an important element is strength of schedule, based on your opponents’ overall record, which is worth 2 points — huge considering other than head-to-head (4 points), it’s the only way to earn more than one point in CIFs tiebreaker.

    That means it’s smarter to schedule lower level teams that project to have good records instead of tougher upper division teams that could finish 5-5. It’s also important to schedule easy non-league because it helps your overall record … It’s not a true strength of schedule, because it only considers your opponents’ overall record, not who they played to get it. This is what’s going to get a 5-5 West Covina in over an 8-2 Crescenta Valley. You watch.

  • Real talk

    As a Amat Fan that goes to ALL the games and roots for the team I got to say over the past years I am very disappointed in the team. From coaching to team mentality. I feel Amat does not not deserve to be in the playoffs, they don’t even belong in pac5…. There I said it.

    • Valley Athletics

      amat won’t get in . I doubt your a Amat fan . Only seen a couple post from you.

      • Real talk

        I’ve been a Amat fan since Eric Bieniemy.. I’ve seen them all from then on. I’ve seen my friends that played on the 92 team can’t believe how far Amat has declined. I just don’t see Amat being the same for years. Drop down win some championships and get the kids back to the school.

        • Valley Athletics

          You must not post muchor you use different names .but then again anyone can drop eric bienemys name .

          • Real talk

            Am I wrong??? Or do you like what’s going on at Amat

          • AmatWillBeFine

            Amat will be fine.. First undefeated JV team since coincidentally the 92′ team. If the freshman team won.. they are 9-1 and might be Serra League Champs.. Last years freshman team went 10-0.. That’s 2 freshman teams with a combined record of 19-1 (9-1 in Serra league play). First time in years, maybe a decade of having back to back successful groups of freshmen. So this year maybe a down year.. but many of the underclassmen got playing time.. If Amat doesn’t show great results these next 2 to 3 years.. after these great underclassmen teams.. Then Hags might have to go.. Maybe if Amat drops divisions they’ll have better odds of winning CIF.. but keep all of the teams in the Pac 5 except 1 win it all.. the other 24 or so teams go home empty.. and usually, it’s the same teams that win the Pac 5.. The next 2 to 3 years will tell us where Amat is going..

          • GP AKA Green Machine

            1 hr until money time, will Amat get in? It’s really hard to judge jv teams and freshman teams bc alot of players are on Varsity. The Most important underclassmen are the QB’s and Rb’s. That’s where Amat has it’s most problems…

          • Real talk

            I couldn’t agree with you mor on the QB & RB thing. Green machine. @Amat will shine. Great input on the future of Amat. Win or lose I will be there as hard as it is sometimes rooting on AMAT.

          • AMAT 73

            RT,
            It’s evident by your post you get around the school to watch underclassmen games .I understand all are able to or have the time but when you make statements as yours it’s nice to have all the facts before you post on AMAT’s decline .

          • Valley Athletics

            No way amat gets in . Crespi put in a bid and has 4 points on them . They needed SM to be at 4th place . To have a chance .

          • Valley Athletics

            Amat had 8 players on varsity from class and still dominated . Running backs are plenty . Trey carter and torrie sweet could of played this year but it was better to let them develop . They are getting stronger and faster and will be great backs . Freshman team has 2 good backs that are nice also .qb is great also . Can run and throw. The biggest improvement that makes this class the best in years is D linemen . 3 of them where on varsity and will develop well. Jv D line players where great and have size . All these players just where not strong enough yet to be in vArsity even though they where bigger in size . 9 month of off season training will get them ready . Ryan Munoz and Andrew vasquez both on varsity are getting trained by trench hogs . Brigham Harwells training . O line had one player who was on varsity getting major playing time . Matthew Brayton who is 6’3 255 . A couple other sophs are same size and where not ready . I expect these guys to grow and get stronger . They could either develop into 6’5 270 pound linemen or not grow anymore and be 6’3″ 250 pound linemen . Only time will tell . My nephews on the team . With this foundation big things can happen . My nephew shows me his twitter feeds from players and they are a right knit unit and can’t wait to take over next year . They even have players who are friends from other good local programs tweeting to them that they are going to do big things . Greg biggins from scout . Tweeted about Vaughn’s being one of top players to watch from an impressive Amat sophmore class . That tweet was retweeted by everyone . Maybe with all these tweets that everyone see,s they can get a couple transfers . We got 2 this year . Some players are transferring out , because they don’t see themselves being key starters next year and there parents want them to go somewhere else . Will they win a title . Not next year . 2 years with the right development and if there ain’t any super teams like St. John bosco or Serra . Those type of teams Re not the norm . Teams with 12 top D 1 talent are have a couple years then drop off a little for a couple then some get back to top and some don’t .

          • AMAT 73

            GP,
            If you think our problems are at QB and RB , then you really are not in tune on AMAT as you think you are . Plenty of up and comers who will defintely contribute next season on Varsity at those position .

          • GP AKA Green Machine

            Your QB and RB production is going to make all the difference in the world. If you are going to have RB by committee, it better be a D@m good committee. If you are going to have a game manager at QB, you better be able to run it well, and hold teams to under 28 pts consistently…You keep using the word “Contribute”. You don’t need contributors, you need a few more players like Sidney…to win league and/or just to make the playoffs. West Co was the king of Game managing QB’s but they had a stable of backs…Now look them….the backs aren’t that good and QB is not a stud. They went from titles to At large…You throw a noodles on this same team, and they are 2nd place or league champs. Same as Amat…Now people are seeing how good Rio Was at QB…He was better than Haynes, his issue was he did not concentrate on Football only. Otherwise, he would have got a ride as a D1 QB.

          • AMAT 73

            GP,
            Contribute : to give , to help a person , group , cause , or organization . To help to cause something to happen . Now that sounds as if Sidney contributed heavily to AMAT’s cause , because he did make things happen . All will CONTRIBUTE next year , whether it be as a starter or coming off the bench to spell a starter .

          • Valley Athletics

            This season was hard to swallow . But what everyone seems to forget is that Amat graduated 8 players who moved on to next level . That is hard to replace that many players . The future does look bright though . and yes I still think Amat belongs in PAC 5 . When amat becomes like a team like walnut , workman, and nogales. Who get blown out all the time . That’s when Amat needs to drop .

        • SGV FB Dad

          If you are a real Amat fan, then you bring shame to our school, and you should go root for a team more of your liking. Amat is consistently competitive in the toughest division. When was the last time Loyola, even made the playoffs? When was the last time Mission Viejo won it all. It is a very tough task. Look at SJB this year. They should win it all. But when was the last time they won it all? There is a huge sense of pride and challenge when you compete at the highest level. I agree that at least 2 games, the RC & Alemany games were lost by the coaching decisions. Obviously you have to just win to move on, so Amat doesn’t deserve to be there this year. But have the b$lls to stand behind your team, through thick and thin.

  • GP AKA Green Machine

    As you all know Troy Thomas and Crespi are in, Amat is out. No playoffs this season. Next year could be different with the super sophs…

    • Not So Fast My Friend

      As much respect as I have for Coach Thomas, Crespi is still a work in progress. They’ve pulled Mission Viejo. Again, not saying it can’t be done, but it won’t be easy either.

      • GP AKA Green Machine

        yea, but he can turn things around…He will be back to the Semis in two years….If they don’t get transfers this summer…

        • Not So Fast My Friend

          Crespi will be getting quite a few transfers in 2014. Lol I hope their Admin office is ready. Lmao

          • AMAT 73

            NSFMF,
            Crespi is very high on doing it with home grown Crespi men . And seeing as Thomas is an alum he knows that . A co worker of mine is a Crespi grad and that was one reason they ran Mack out and went with Thomas . But then again we will see ,as the need to win changes many things .

          • Not So Fast My Friend

            That’s very true, but I never said he’d be recruiting. :-)
            Coach Thomas’ name alone carries a lot of weight. Enough so, I’d be surprised if their enrollment applications, ie football players, doesn’t go up. Either way he’s going to remake Crespi into Servite West.

    • Valley Athletics

      I was surprised a 4-6 team would go ahead of a 7-3 team from the toughest league in the PAC 5 . Fox sports and eric sondheimer both said at large births would go to the trinity league .

  • 626

    Man this Southeast bracket is TOUGH to try and prognosticate! Here goes my best shot…

    1. Norwalk (Suburban 1)
    West Covina (Hacienda 4)

    Dominguez (SGV 2)
    El Rancho (Del Rio 2)

    Downey (SGV 1)
    Diamond Bar (Hacienda 3)

    4. Muir (Pacific 1)
    Sante Fe (Del Rio 3)

    3. LS (Del Rio 1)
    Burroughs (Pacific 3)

    Los Altos (Hacienda 2)
    Mayfair (Suburban 2)

    Burbank (Pacific 2)
    Paramount (SGV 3)

    2. DR (Hacienda 1)
    La Mirada (Suburban 3)

    • Football fan

      This one makes sense especially with an at large team. It made no sense for someone putting WC with a team other than a top team. I guess we will see how it turns out, but yours seems sensible.

    • LongTimeTartan

      If I remember correctly, you can’t place the 1st and 2nd place teams from the same league on the same side of the bracket.

    • Southeast follower

      I like your bracket better than the one above

      I agree that this is tough bracket but I am wondering how much they deviate from the guidelines which I assume they do.

      Taken from CIF Handbook

      “Consider there are five leagues assigned to this particular bracket, it now becomes necessary to place the only league not represented thus far, League D. The No. 1 designee is placed in either half of the bracket, with League D #2 in the
      opposite half (See Diagram #3).”

      Which translates to ER/Los Altos in the top bracket with 1 Norwalk and 4 Muir and Mayfair and Burbank in the bottom with 3 La Serna and 2 Diamond Ranch.

      The second problem I had was in conforming to a second guideline:
      “The final step is to place the No. 3 teams from each of the respective leagues in the open slots, attempting to place each in one of the remaining A quarters of the bracket where the league is not represented. This process eliminates the aspect of schools from the same league meeting in the second round of competition.”

      I have one problem in my bracket is that WC could meet Diamond Bar in Second round.
      Here is mine for discussion purposes, Any feedback or suggestions.

      West Covina 1Norwalk
      Dominquez Diamond Bar
      El Rancho Los Altos
      Paramount 4 Muir

      Burroughs 3 La Serna
      Downey La Mirada
      Burbank Mayfair
      Santa Fe 2 Diamond Ranch

      • 626

        Yeah, this bracket is TOUGH!

  • 626

    I’m sure I have some issues with my bracket, and I welcome all criticisms/corrections, but I’ve got to point out some too on Guru’s bracket.

    The first would be West Covina as the At-large team (and the Hacienda 4) playing Dominguez as a #2 league representative (SGV). That’s just not going to happen. The At-large may not always face the #1 seed of the division, but they always face a league’s #1 representative. WC, I believe, will have to face the #1 seed in Norwalk, but if not they’ll play La Serna, Muir, or Downey in the 1st round.

    The other would be Paramount vs. Muir. Less of a technicality issue, like the one above, but more a sensical one. Paramount is a #2 league representative, however they are still league co-champs. No way is a co-champ going to play a seeded team. I just don’t see it.

    Again, my bracket might be crazy, but hopefully it’ll be close.

    • Southeast follower

      Not everyone going to be happy since some teams don’t deserve 1 or 2 since it was based on coin flips rather than rankings. Good try we’ll see how close we are in few hours. I hope you are right.

  • AZTEC PRIDE

    Alright AZUSA, hope you go deep in the playoffs and are playing the week of THANKSGIVING and beyond that! Lets go AZTECS, hope we get to play at Citrus College! Get’em ready Coach Scherf !

  • Lance R

    Not a good season for our Lancers. You only can control so much. The Crespi Alemany game was theirs for the taking which gets them in the playoffs. Tough breaks, coaching blunders and a horrible secondary. The offense could get their points on the board it was the defense that could not come up with big stops when it counted. Another year goes by the torch gets passed from the Seniors to the underclassmen and the tradition of Amat football continues through the pac 5 where they still belong. As one poster put it, when they become Workman, Walnut, Nogales or Wilson bound then drop them, but when you play pac 5 opponent straight up every year and are in the thick of thing year to year you belong. Will they be raising a championship football banner anytime soon probably not, but then again how many other pac 5 schools compete every year and have not hung one for years.

    • observantcat

      imagine Amat without the Monrovia standout So. Trey Sydney, He is Amat’s secondary

      • GP AKA Green Machine

        They better watch Tre…I am sure, he figured to be going to the playoffs 3-4 years at Amat…with his 6-7 picks this season…the scouts know him…will he stay at Amat?

        • Boycott lacerito

          Yes he will stay at Amat. I know that for a fact. He loves his classmates. So go try spreading roomers else where cuz these next 2 years Amat will shine. Stay rune green machine.

          • Boycott lacerito

            Tune

          • GP AKA Green Machine

            I did not say anyone was transferring anywhere However, who knows how people will feel once they reflect on things….There are plenty of sophs at BA..they are supposed to be good. Some may decide to look elsewhere over the summer.

          • 626

            The more likely scenario after the 4 peat is that the Pacific moves into the Mid Valley as opposed to the RHL moving to the Southeast. And remember, Monrovia is stuck in the RHL until 2018.

          • GP AKA Green Machine

            That sucks…No way is the Pacific moving down. If Monrovia can’t get out, they will win 8 in row….There has to be some kind of exception made to get them out.

          • Think again

            In March CIF will be re working the divisions once again. Perhaps CIF will either move the RHL to a new division or bring in some tougher competition to the Mid Valley.

          • GP AKA Green Machine

            You can’t bring anyone good enough down. The only option is to make a special case and Move Monrovia into the pacific just for football. There is no other solution…Only 3 midvalley teams have scored over 21 in the playoffs verse the cats…While the Cats put up over 40…after 4 CIF should just say ok ok…South east.

          • Think again

            Perhaps they simply move the RHL up to D9, D8, or D7.

          • Think again

            You just named teams from 6 different leagues for the Southeast next year. At least one of those leagues is not going to be in the Southeast next year.

          • GP AKA Green Machine

            Well who is going up or down out of those teams? My point was the South East is going to be Strong next year..

          • Think again

            My point is that it won’t be as strong as your making it out to be because one of the leagues that contain the teams that you mentioned is not going to be in the Southeast. My guess is that the SGV League will be gone due to the fact that each one of the teams within that league consist of schools that have student body populations of between 4000-5000 kids. That would mean that Downey, Dominguez, and Paramount would be gone.

          • GP AKA Green Machine

            They SVL was just brought in not too long ago…Why would they take it out so fast ?

        • Boycott lacerito

          And get your stats correct trey has 8 for the season. Well on his way to breaking the school record which is 15. So green lantern he defiantly will not go to Monrovia

          • GP AKA Green Machine

            Who said Tre was Transferring to Monrovia? Now why would he want to do that?

        • Valley Athletics

          You said the same about camargo his freshman year . There is a couple kids leaving . Those are the kids who don’t see them delve playing much next season .

          • GP AKA Green Machine

            I don’t know it’s going to be a long summer.

    • GP AKA Green Machine

      A lot of the schools are new… Amat, Poly, Mater Dei, Loyola have been in it the longest. Amat is not having the sucess Poly and Mater Dei have had over the years. You have to give the other schools time…I think you are over playing the close losses and hanging with Elite Pac 5 schools…Who ever is Elite in the Pac 5 is beating Amat by 3 scores in the first round. Once again this has nothing to do with what other SGV schools would do in the Pac 5. They are not supposed to hang…but when other schools like Chino hills, La Serna, and West Covina all have 1 win against pac 5 schools and BA has 2 wins….you have to view BA as a bottom tier pac 5 team along with the schools they beat, because none of them made the playoffs either.

  • Valley Athletics

    Charter oak got a good first round draw . Yucaipa is one of the weaker at large teams that they will beat . Second round is where they have there toughest opponent they have ever played in the playoffs .

    • GP AKA Green Machine

      yeah they won’t beat vista…

    • Not So Fast My Friend

      I have to second Greenie, climbing Mount Vista Murrieta is going to be hard. Not saying it can’t be done, but it certainly won’t be easy. But the good thing Valley Athletics, on any given Friday, anyone can be beat.

      • GP AKA Green Machine

        I like this CO “Team”. However if they play vista the score will be
        VM 31 CO 17. Respectable..But no dice…

    • SGV_FOOTBALL

      We played VM first year in the Inland in their house. VM not new to CO, we know what they can do. Yucaipa is a mystery to me, do not know anything about them.

      • Valley Athletics

        Forgot about that 2010 game .

  • blue

    Oooo duarte vs maranatha is going to be a good game. But want to see that torrance vs azusa. Lets go aztecs

  • Not So Fast My Friend

    I don’t think that I’ve seen a more “Murderers Row” playoff bracket than this year’s Inland Division. Yikes! Some, on paper, look like Gimmie games, but for the most part, there are very few you can sleep on.

  • Holly Cow

    Looks like Pomona is going to get whats left of their behinds kicked again this week and will be 1 and done. My prediction is Rosemead by 3 td’s.

  • blue

    call me crazy if you want but i have azusa doing GREAT in this bracket. They have so much heart and they will give there all every down, every game. i have faith in the Aztecs. They will Surprise there opponents.

    • GP AKA Green Machine

      I don’t, after Torrance, It’s Nordhoff…I can’t see Azusa beating them..

      • blue

        Hey nordhoff has to go through verbum dei first, its the playoffs, ANYTHING can happen

  • brad mill

    Isn’t Diamond Bar 6-4? Their only loses were to #1 Norwalk, #2 DRanch,, Los Altos and the forfeit to Rowland. Why does everyone keep showing them at 5-5?

  • New York

    Coach Zernickow’s quote makes me laugh. “The competitor” should want to play Paraclete somewhere along the way as well…The Mid Valley bracket is a huge gift to San Dimas, Arroyo, View Point and San Marino for getting placed on the other side of both Monrovia and Paraclete. Some how a 6-4 San Dimas got a higher seed #3 and than 6-4 Paraclete #4. San Dimas (the competitors) should really want the opportunity to avenge last year’s loss to Paraclete and this season’s loss to Monrova.

    Monrovia’s first round opponent has just a 5-5 record, but two seasons ago they were 15-0. If all goes well, we will at least get to play multiple opponents from outside the area. That makes things more interesting, as does a potential semi-final appearance up in the cold of Palmdale against Paraclete…not to look ahead.
    In the Inland bracket, I think both Vista #1 seed and Charter Oak got screwed. Why is it that the two league champs would play each other in the second round, where as the #2 seed would get to play the Sierra #2 in the second round?

  • Spartan Pops

    All this talk about super sophs at Amat, well you need to start looking at what the super soph at Damien has done this year, Mr. Thigpen!! He is very exciting to watch run and with what he just did to Chino Hills, I am sure you will see his name a lot in the paper next year. Good finish for Damien this week and several strong juniors returning for next year, no matter what league they end up in. Go Spartans.

    • Boycott lacerito

      Well u will get your turn to prove that next year with Damian’s “super sophs” lmfao when they meet up with the big boys next year. Find another name for your sophomores clearly BA has about 22 studs with dept in every position… It’s going to be ugly when bishop meets amat

      • AMAT 73

        BL,
        Remember us big boys are sitiing home this Friday night , in case you forgot . Thigpen did have a solid season for the Spartans and he will be a force these next 2 years if indeed Damien does wind up in the PAC-5 .Also please explain how it’s going to get ugly when bishop ??? meets AMAT , unless you have some inside knowledge that Hags has scheduled Bishop Gorman for next season ??????

        • Boycott lacerito

          My bad Amat 73 I meant to say damien. But don’t be surprised if they do schedule someone from out of state… And yes I’ll be home watching TV while other teams will be playing. He said to look the other way??? 1 kid when bishop super sophs are stacked. Amat 73 it will get ugly when Damian plays amat

          • AMAT 73

            Yes it will be but I believe they will be much tougher with Parades instead of Gano . I just can’t see them in the PAC-5 , at least right now . It won’t take long for the some at Damien to start their nomal crap as they have in the past . No matter who is coaching because if you recall , when Gano came aboard that was the missing piece of the puzzle for them , and how quick did that change .

            I don’t know any local team that goes by the name Bishop…what school is he referring to??? lol.

            New York,
            As the saying goes , there are many Bishops , but there is only one AMAT . hahahahaha

      I had mentioned it before that Damien had a good junior class. The sophmore class is not as good but thigpen is great . Qb will be a problem . The big sophmore Qb is average .

    C-No just may get out of the first round. Lucky dogs. Should they win that first game, they will most certainly meet the end of their season against VM.

    SH will be done in 1.

    CH, should they get past the 1st Round will also meet the end of their season when they face CC.

    The Inland is shaping up to look like a CC vs. VM final.

    Perhaps a team with large linemen can go up against DLS so we can see yet again if size really matters up front as much as you Southern Section honks claim. ROFLMFAO

    LA pulled a nice draw, if they manage to get by Paramount, (which they should), next up would potentially be the number 4 seed, which, obviously, is better than the 1,2,3 seed. Muir has a lot of supporters, but they cannot look past La Mirada. Should be fun…

    I think some just need to understand that Amat will be just fine. Some don’t realize the level they play at in football every year. Any team at any level can go thru transition or down years. You just can’t win every year, but you can always put your best foot forward which I believe all their coaches, players and staff do. Heck Im not even a Amat guy but played pro sports at a high level and understand the comp level day in a day out. Sports are met to build character and give kids a sense of understanding what team work is all about. Lets just pull for the kids that are in the playoffs and wish them well. BA runs a good school and a good sports program and will always hold true to their values!
    Best of luck!

    South Hills got a better draw than Chino Hills.

    • SGV_FOOTBALL

      I disagree, If South Hills was able to get out of the first round yes but SH first game is tougher than CH & CO’s first game.

      • New York

        Well Upland has shown vulnerability more so than Chaparral. Glendora is a team roughly at South Hills’s level. Chapparal really hasn’t had any slip ups like that. The home game, though, is nice for Chino Hills.

        • Not So Fast My Friend

          It’s actually an away game for CH.

  • Not So Fast My Friend

    Fred, just FYI, you have the won/loss records for Chaparral, Chino Hills, and Centennial wrong. Chap is 7-3, CH, 7-3, and CC is 8-2. Your Inland bracket has them 8-2, 5-5, and 7-3 respectively.
