The football playoffs begin this week in the LA City Section. You can find all five of the City Section playoff brackets here, from the Open Division to 8-man.
Below are Scorebook Live California’s final regular season football rankings.
1. San Pedro – 8-2 – Bye Week
San Pedro is the top seed in the Open Division following Narbonne’s postseason ban. They’ll host Carson on November 15th.
2. San Fernando – 9-0 – Bye Week
San Fernando is the two seed in the Open and will face Crenshaw following their undefeated regular season.
3. Palisades – 9-1 – Bye Week
Palisades fell to the number six spot in the CalPreps rankings even with Narbonne’s ban, so they’ll travel to Banning in ten days for the #6 vs. #3 game in the Open Division.
4. Banning – 6-4 – Bye Week
Narbonne’s forfeit against Banning on Friday pushed the Pilots to the number three seed in the Open. Their last-second win over Carson a few weeks ago was massive for seeding purposes.
5. Garfield – 8-2 – Bye Week
Following an East LA Classic win, Garfield is the five seed in the Open and will travel to play Birmingham.
6. Birmingham – 5-4 – Bye Week
Birmingham’s beatdown of Granada Hills propelled the Patriots to the four seed in the Open Division playoffs.
7. Crenshaw – 7-2 – Bye Week
Crenshaw dominated the Coliseum League, but an out of league loss to Garfield kept the Cougars on the lower end of the top eight. A trip to San Fernando awaits in the #7 vs. #2 game.
8. Reseda – 6-3 – vs. South Gate
The Regents are the two seed in Division 1 and host South Gate on Friday.
9. Eagle Rock – 7-3 – vs. Sylmar
Eagle Rock wrapped up a Northern League championship and the top seed in Division 1 last week. They’ll host Sylmar on Friday.
10. Canoga Park – 8-2 – vs. Fremont
With Narbonne out of the top ten, it’s Canoga Park who breaks into the rankings this week. They’re the two-seed in Division 2 and will host Fremont on Friday.
