Saturday December 4 – Kickoff set for 6:00 p.m.
Northview (8-6) at Colony (7-6)
It’s been a tale of two seasons for both teams. Colony started the season 0-5 but has won 7 of 8 since then including 6 straight. Northview started 2-5 and has gone 6-1 since including last week’s 27-20 win over St. Anthony to win the Division 10 CIF title. The Vikings defense has been the story. They held high powered Palmdale to 14 points in the semi finals and shut down a Kaiser ground game the week before after Kaiser had rushed for over 600 yards in the previous game. Colony’s offense has been lighting it up. The Titans outscored St. Margaret’s 49-41 in the CIF Division 9 Finals and scored 94 points in the first two playoff games. If the Vikings get into a shootout they could be in trouble. They will need to get the ground attack going and play good defense to have a chance. A score in the twenties would benefit Northview. The Vikes will make it work for awhile, but in the end Colony’s offense will be too much. The Titans pull away in the second half.
