Nogales, South Hills football advance to next round

Nogales rolls past LP: The drought-busting Nogales football team did it again, and it barely broke a sweat.
Last week, Nogales ended 26 years of frustration with a victory over Azusa to win its first league title since 1991, and Thursday it ended another drought in the first round of the CIF-Southern Section Division 13 playoffs.
Nogales’ Francisco Ibarra III scored the first four times he carried the ball and the Nobles went on to rout La Puente 42-0 to win its first playoff game since beating Santa Barbara in 1995.

South Hills pulls away in second half: Top-seeded South Hills struggled early but pulled away in the second half to beat Pacifica of Oxnard 42-21 in a CIF Southern Section Division 7 first-round playoff game Thursday night.It is the first time since 2009 that the Huskies have advanced past the first round.
The Huskies (10-1) will play the winner of Friday night’s game between Burbank and Tustin next week at a site to be determined.

    Long Bus rides to Paso Robles and Lompoc..Been there done that. ugh.. The recent changed system of geographically local playoffs had its charm… now it is back to the past … and a two hour bus ride that usually turned out badly.

    Two hours of anticipation followed by 2 hours of quiet disappointment.. and or a bunch of miles on the car, cost of gas, and an empty tank

      Well, with all that said, I think it’s kinda good to get kids out to see other parts of the state of California, which, some might not have the opportunity to do otherwise.
      Long commutes for playoffs can be made a little less cumbersome and tiring if boosters, parents and the community get together and plan the trips, provide healthy replenishing refreshments, rent buses to transport students, parents, etc. to cheer their team.
      I’m a bleacher mom, and I have travelled throughout the country with my kids for games and tournaments, they have been some of the best times in our lives!
