(Boyle Heights/East L.A)—The highly unfortunate re-scheduling of this opening playoff game last Friday, 2/8/19, gave both squads an opportunity to take a big, deep breath and candidly reflect on the sad reason for the decision that was made by North Hollywood HS “en memoriam” of a member of their sports family.
The CIF/L.A. City Section Commissioner’s Office commented that the postponement was made at the request of the school. Roosevelt’s Administration fully agreed with North Hollywood’s request.
And thus, the stage is set for the playoff battle tonight between the #7 seeded Rough Riders, (15-12)/ Overall/(6-6) Eastern League, and the #10 No. Hollywood Huskies, (14-12) Overall/(7-3) East Valley League. The winner moves forward in the playoffs and will play on Wednesday, 2/13, an away game, against #2 seed, the JFK Kennedy Cougars/Granada Hills (18-10) Overall/(9-2) Valley Mission League at 7 pm.
