The 2019 high school football regular season has come to a close with five SCV schools: Canyon, Hart, Trinity Classical Academy, Valencia and West Ranch advancing to the playoffs and turning their attention to making a deep postseason run after the CIF-Southern Section released the playoff brackets on Sunday.
The Foothill League Champions, Valencia, won their 11th straight league title. The Vikings finished the regular season on a very similar five-game streak, winning its 42nd consecutive league game to advance to the CIF-SS Division 2 playoffs after a second shut-out victory of the season in a 45-0 shellacking of West Ranch on Friday.
“It’s a great end of the Foothill League which is awesome,” said Valencia head coach Larry Muir. “I think, to finish the year like that and head into playoffs you have to feel good about that. But it’s a whole new season next week, a whole new deal with teams that are outside of this area and don’t know who we are and we aren’t going to know who they are, it’s going to be a challenge. I like where our team is at and like where they are competing and we will put it together and see where we can go.”
Valencia clashes against the South Coast League’s runner-up San Clemente, which only had one league loss at the hands of Division 1 playoff team Mission Viejo.
The Vikings head into the matchup as the No. 69th ranked team in the state, while the Tritons rank No. 5. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. at Valencia on Friday.
