The Reseda Regents will face Franklin High School for the CIFLACS Division III Championship after knocking off Hollywood High by a score of 37-0. It’s Number 1 vs Number 2 for the DIII Crown, with Franklin coming in seeded as the Number 1 team. Reseda used a balanced attack on offense and, as always, played sound on the defensive side of the ball, giving Hollywood High no time to set their offense and run their sets.
Reseda will take their 5 game winning streak to El Camino College against a Franklin team that lost only one game all season and hold an 11-1 record. The two teams faced three of the same opponents, going up against Chavez, Hollywood, and Van Nuys. Look for Reseda to be too much for Franklin to handle and come away with their first City Section title under Coach Alonso Arreola.
Here are the highlights from the game against Hollywood, who were outmatched by Reseda from bell to bell. Jr. Ja’Lani Elison has been a stud during the playoffs. He had three picks – two pick 6’s – and should be a serious contender for All City Player in Division III. The Regents look good overall as a team but will need to be on their A game come 11am December 3, 2016 at El Camino College. Both teams will look for Santa to deliver an early Christmas present wrapped in the shape of a City Section title.
Become Great at what you do.
