: : : : : : : : : : LOve the Valley Torah team and their season this far. 25-3 this far moving forward. They have excellent players and excellent coaches. IM hoping they capture the 5A title. Shalom !!!! Great to see coach Eli Essa coaching again!
: : : : : : : : : Whoever did the voting did Valley Torah a disservice. They and the #4 team Victor Valley are the best teams in Division 5AA. Unfortunately, Victor Valley would host that game, instead of it being in the Finals where neither team has an advantage. 5AA coaches need to scout better.
: : : : : : : : I thought they flip a coin to see where that game would be played? Advantage Victor Valley. That will be a great game if they face one another. Both teams having a great season for sure.
: : : : : : : No one under division 2a maybe 3aa does their job of scouting, they play to compete in the bad leagues they are in, figure they can't win cif so they copy and paste maxpreps for their voting with probably moving their own team up a few spots. They have never seen the teams in their divisions and just guess. I assume you can thank hudl because getting film is easy now instead of coaches going out mid year to scout possible playoff opponents and actually seeing the teams play.
: : : : : : Hudl is to scouting what Tinder is to dating.
: : : : : : As for what the previous poster said, Victor Valley will have played one home game by the semis, Valley Torah will have played two. Any game between the two schools would be in Victorville.
: : : : : Well, so much for that showdown game. LOL - Victor Valley Lost last night- so Valley Torah will NOT be playing them. 26-3 for Valley Torah, great season and great coaching. MOre to come.
: : : : Valley Torah is lucky to be alive still! Shows you that it doesn't matter who you play when playoffs come around anyone can beat anyone on a given Night! What a Great Game last night in a Back and Forth Matchup. Kudos to Bassett and their Staff for the Battle they put up, I was truly scared for most of the game as this was the Best Team I've seen VT play all year! VT was actually down with less than 2minutes to go. Bassett's Best player missed the 2nd of a 1 and 1 with 3secs left to tie it and possibly send it to OT. Valley Torah made 1 of 2 with less than 2secs left and a heave from 70feet fell short and VT Survive and advance.
: : : wow! sounds like a barn burner! Playoffs are awesome. Thats why the games are played. On any given day, anyone can beat anyone.
: : Tough loss last night for Valley Torah. Arrowhead Christian defeated them in a hard fought game. I think final score was 60-45.
: Wolves, Gorillas, what's the difference anymore?
The "difference" is the Gorillas will be playing for the D4 championship once again. They have a very good coach and the League MVP. They have a group of great kids who play as a team. Tell you what - come to the game next week - ill buy you some popcorn. Whether a team plays in D1 - D2 - D3 - D-4 - or D-5 - makes little difference to the kids who play. They all play to win and they all play for fun. Winning a championship at any level IS important to all who play. Surprised you dont seem to understand that.
