2012, Week 11: Army-Navy Among Early Casualties

And then there were 40.

Twenty teams were eliminated in first-round, San Diego Section playoff games last week.

There were no upsets but maybe a mild surprise or two.

Army-Navy, 10-0 and coming off the best regular season in the school’s 102-year history, was knocked out by Calipatria 41-21  Division IV.

The teams had one common opponent. Army-Navy defeated Mountain Empire 30-16 and Calipatria topped the Redhawks 40-28.

Calipatria, 8-2 in the regular season, competed in the more robust Manzanita League.  Army-Navy is a member of the Pacific League, of which Calipatria and other Manzanita clubs were members as recently as 2010.

Olympian, which drew a first-round bye and meets Mt. Carmel in the quarterfinals this week, is the County’s remaining unbeaten team at 10-0.


Hilltop’s 35-28, overtime victory over Orange Glen represented the most closely contested game, in III.  Of historic import, Del Norte’s first-ever playoff appearance in the school’s fourth year was a success.

The Night Hawks overcame Mission Bay 34-28 in an IV matchup after trailing 28-20 at halftime.

Average scores:  Division I, 43-18; II, 35-16; III, 30-9; IV, 31-17; V, 49-18.
