The championship is a win away. Who will get a title? Let’s find out.
Today’s (PLAYOFF!) Games
No. 2 Paradise at No. 1 Enterprise. Winner: Enterprise. NOTE: I will have more on this game either Friday or Saturday, but the predicted winner will not change, barring a rampant case of food poisoning hitting the team.
No. 3 Central Valley at No. 1 West Valley. Winner: West Valley. NOTE: Again, I will have more on this game either Friday or Saturday, but the winner will not change, barring a rampant case of food poisoning hitting the team.
No. 6 Winters at No 5 Hamilton. Winner: Winters. Playing at home hasn’t meant anything in D-III so let’s ride the road team.
No. 3 Fall River at No. 1 Maxwell. Winner: Fall River. The weather has cooperated and that means the Bulldogs’ passing attack won’t be hampered.
Sorry, there’s not more on the two Wednesday finals, but it’s short week, and I’m short on time with basketball previews needing to be worked on. Enjoy the holiday weekend everyone. OK, remember down below are the Twitter addresses for game updates.
Here’s how I’ve done:
Week Zero: 3-0.
Week 1: 6-6.
Week 2: 7-4.
Week 3: 7-3.
Week 4: 10-2.
Week 5: 7-4.
Week 6: 8-3.
Week 7: 12-3.
Week 8: 12-1.
Week 9: 15-3.
Week 10: 18-0!
First Round/Quarterfinals: 13-3.
I’m 77-12 the past 6 weeks. I’m thankful my picks have been pretty darn solid of late.
The right stuff: Enterprise over Foothill, Paradise over Chico, West Valley over Orland, Central Valley over Sutter (NOTE: I originally went with CV, was flip-flopping back to Sutter before my cousin Amy Shufelberger-Knowles, the Shasta College assistant softball coach, told me not to switch, and I’ve learned over the years to ALWAYS listen to her), Hamilton over Colusa, Maxwell over Etna, Redding Christian over Butte Valley.
Didn’t see these coming: Winters over Durham, Fall River over Biggs.
So on the season: 125-34.
Can’t make it to the games?
Here’s who to follow on Twitter for certain games:

Fall River at Maxwell, the Marysville Appeal-Democrat is covering this game, but haven’t heard which writer is covering. Will update if I can.
Paradise at Enterprise, @jtlarson from the Paradise Post and @tjholmes_RS from the Record Searchlight.
