    The Socal D1
    The IE vs The OC. CC vs SJB and RC vs MD .This could be a IE D1 championship game on December 3rd or a OC championship game at the Big A. A very poor place to play a championship game. Attended the last 3 Pac 5 games there. Best of luck to all 4 teams. But pulling for CC and RC.
