CIF-Southern Section football championships
Saturday’s game and prediction
Rancho Mirage (11-2) at Arroyo (12-1), 7 p.m. — Robledo (Arroyo); Aram (Arroyo)
Arroyo looking for first title since 1986: The Arroyo High School football team has been on a tear for the last seven quarters of football its played.
From the second quarter of its second-round win against Schurr, all the way through the four quarters it played against Segerstrom in the semifinals, the Knights have outscored their opponents by a combined 106-28.
If Arroyo can keep it up, odds are good that the Knights will hoist their first CIF Southern Section championship plaque since 1986. Arroyo hosts Rancho Mirage in the Division 12 championship on Saturday at 7 p.m.
Read both coaches comments in the Desert Sun: Heading into Saturday evening’s CIF Southern Section Division 12 football championship, Desert Sun high school sports reporter Nathan Brown talked with the head coaches from Rancho Mirage (L.D. Matthews) and Arroyo (Jim Singiser) to see their thoughts on their opponents, the biggest matchups to focus on and what it’ll be like to coach a CIF title game for the first time.
