Horrible to hear that California City beat Frazier Mt 165-38. So when it was 142-31 at the end of the 3rd quarter, Why did the Ravens want to score another 23 points. This is what happens when a team sand bags in the wrong division. The defending division 5 champion Ravens should have tried to compete and move to the bigger boy division. Shameful.

Division 5 Playoff notes-
Even though Cal City shouldn’t be in division 5, the sandbaggers will get the No 1 seed.
The No 2 seed should go to the Corcoran Panthers over the Orange Cove Titans. The Panthers played the tougher schedule.
Sierra beat Liberty Madera twice and Firebaugh twice and could get the No 3 or 4 seed. Pag Meter Predictions for the playoffs
