Bishop Diego Receives CIF State Playoff Berth, Will Host Quartz Hill

Bishop Diego received an invitation to the CIF State Football Playoffs and will host Quartz Hill in a Division 3AA regional game on Friday night at La Playa Stadium.

The winner advances to the state championship game on Dec. 15 or 16 against the winner of the North regional game between Kentfield Marin Catholic (12-0) and Redding Shasta (11-1). The title game would be played at a home site.

Bishop Diego is the Southern Section champion in Division 6. Quartz Hill edged Dos Pueblos for the section Division 10 title.

Quartz Hill stopped Dos Pueblos inches from scoring the winning touchdown on the last play of the game to escape with a 26-21 victory on Saturday night.  The Rebels (13-1) are led by quarterback / linebacker and UCLA commit Matthew Tago.

Bishop Diego (13-1) won its first CIF football title in school history last Friday, beating Golden Valley 37-6 at Canyon High.

The Cardinals have averaged more than 40 points during the postseason.

This marks the first time a local football team has played in the state playoffs.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
