Unbeatens Canyons & Riverside Lead Northerners Butte & San Mateo:

   San Mateo (Nov. 5, 2018) – College of the Canyons is still the top unbeaten California Community College football team. But the Cougars have a “new perfect” 9-0 challenger in Riverside City College. The Tigers got their 34-33 early season loss to Fullerton back via forfeit Sunday night. The Southern California Football Association assessed Fullerton forfeits of all nine regular season wins this season and the ten in 2017. Canyons received seven first place votes and Riverside had four in the JC Athletic Bureau poll of California Community College football coaches this week for a 13-point lead. 294-281. No. 3 Butte and No. 4 College of San Mateo lead the north.

   STATE PLAYOFFS BEGIN Nov. 17: Each region will qualify three National Division league champs and a wild card. Region finals Nov. 24 will determine finalists for the CCCAA title game, Dec. 8, at Sacramento CC (national TV on ELEVEN SPORTS USA).

  NCFC: Although all three National Division leagues have clear leaders, only third ranked Butte in the NorCal and No. 8 Fresno in the Valley have clinched playoff berths. They have already beaten the respective second place teams in their leagues, American River and Modesto. Closers: Butte at Shasta and West Hills at Fresno. Reigning region champ San Mateo has clinched at least a tie for a 3-peat in the Bay 6 but still must extend its record 14-game league win streak against visiting No. 5 City College of San Francisco Saturday (TV: ELEVEN SPORTS USA) to earn a state berth. Wins by CCSF and No. 6 Laney (against No. 21 Chabot on Friday) would create a 3-way title deadlock. In that case San Francisco and Laney would likely take the two remaining playoff berths.

   SCFA: No. 12 Saddleback matches 4-0 Southern League marks at No. 2 Riverside Saturday for the title. Although the other two leagues have clear leaders, 3-way title ties are very possible. Northern League: Canyons (4-0) hosts co-second and 11th-ranked Bakersfield (3-1), while No. 7 Ventura (3-1) entertains Long Beach (1-3). Central League: No. 9 El Camino leads at 4-0 after getting Saturday’s loss to Fullerton back via forfeit and closes at co-second/No. 13 Cerritos (3-1). No. 20 Palomar (3-1) visits SD Mesa (1-3).

AMERICAN DIVISION RACES: SCFA: No. 18 Chaffey, No. 17 Hancock, and No. 23 San Bernardino Valley have clinched league bowl berths — but the latter two could still share titles if they lose finales. Chaffey has completed a 9-1 regular season in the Metro. Runner-up LA Valley finishes hosting Santa Ana. Pacific: Hancock clinched with last Saturday’s win at LA Pierce and closes hosting LA Harbor, while Pierce is at Santa Monica. Mountain: SBVC hosts Desert and second place Citrus visits co-third Mt. San Jacinto.

  NCFC: Golden Coast: No. 22 Reedley, lone American Division unbeaten, visits (No. 26) Hartnell for the league’s bowl berth.

Pacific 7: Co-leaders De Anza and Yuba, both 5-0, meet in Cupertino for the title and an American Division bowl berth.
