(4) Lincoln (6-4)

(3) Ramona (6-4)

(6) West Hills (6-4) vs. (11) Hoover (6-4)

(7) Serra (7-3) vs. (10) Monte Vista (6-4)

Finals Saturday, Dec. 1, 3:35 p.m. at Escondido High

Favorite (2) Cathedral Catholic

Though an early-season loss to Torrey Pines kept Cathedral Catholic from earning the top seed, it’s difficult to pick against the five-time defending section champions. Cathedral Catholic has a stout defense and an offense led by experienced senior quarterback Garrett Bogart, and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Dons capture a sixth straight Division III title.

Sleeper (5) Point Loma

A slow start kept Point Loma in obscurity early on, but the Pointers won six of their last seven games and are playing their best football headed into the postseason. Point Loma has the size and speed to contend, and its Wing-T offense can be a handful for opposing defenses.

Best of the First Round (7) Serra vs. (10) Monte Vista

Serra and Monte Vista will start the postseason the same way they began the regular season – playing against each other. The Conquistadors won that meeting 26-14 on Aug. 31, and familiarity should breed a closer result in the playoff rematch between two of the more underrated teams in the section.

Star Watch Tyree Robinson, Lincoln, Sr. / Tyrell Robinson, Lincoln, Sr.

The Robinson twins committed to Oregon this fall, and the two-sport stars have led Lincoln on the gridiron this season. Both play receiver for the Hornets, and on defense Tyree lines up at linebacker while Tyrell wreaks havoc at defensive end. Lincoln will go as far as the play of its talented twins can take them.

Looking Ahead Finals – (1) Olympian vs. (2) Cathedral Catholic

If the top two teams in the bracket make it to the finals, the Division III title game will be an appetizing rematch of last season’s championship – a game Cathedral Catholic won 41-0. This clash between championship tradition and an emerging power would likely be a little bit closer.
