(East Los Angeles, CA)—The Eastern League is represented at the highest level of the CIF-L.A. City Section by the Garfield Bulldogs in the “Open” Division Final and the Roosevelt Rough Riders in the Division II Final this coming Friday, 11/23/18, at El Camino Community College, located in Torrance, CA.
Be a part of watching history in the making as both of our East L.A. schools battle for their respective Championships. Here’s how you can do it. First, you can be a student, an alumni, a family member, a community supporter, or just a good old high school football fan who attends the game in full-game readiness. Second, you can be a “Live Stream” viewer at home on your desktop/laptop, on the go with your tablet or Ipad, or watching it on your TV. Both games will be “Live Streamed” on the NFHSNetwork.Com. (See more details below).
Here’s the game-day schedule for your Post-Thanksgiving Day plans to come out and support our two East Los Angeles-based teams in this historic moment that showcases them playing in two separate CIF/L.A. City Section Division Finals (Open & Division II), on the exact same day.
At 3:00 pm our #7 seed, Roosevelt Rough Riders (9-4) open the playoff schedule for the day as they take on the Locke Academy Saints (9-4), 3rd place finishers in the Coliseum League. The Riders posted victories over Verdugo Hills, L.A.-Wilson, and Canoga Park to make the Final. While Locke Academy defeated Hollywood, Arleta, and Franklin to secure their place in the Final.
At 7:00 pm, our #6 seed, Garfield Bulldogs (12-0) will take on the perennial L.A. City Section powerhouse, the #1 seeded, Narbonne Gauchos (9-3), in the Open Division Final. The Gauchos posted highly dominant victories over Venice (67-0) and Birmingham, (63-23) to reach the Final. While the Bulldogs defeated Carson (14-10), and Eagle Rock (24-21), in dramatic come-from-behind victories on their path to the Final.
On another historic note, it is a guaranteed State Playoff appearance for the Garfield Bulldogs regardless of the game’s outcome. Roosevelt can also earn itself a bid to the State Playoffs only with a victory over Locke Academy.
