Channel League title at stake in Saturday's Dos Pueblos-Santa Barbara football showdown

It's the game of the year in the Channel League for football: Dos Pueblos vs. Santa Barbara on Saturday night at La Playa Stadium.

The winner clinches a tie for the league title, an automatic CIF playoff berth and the city championship. 

Both teams are 2-0 in league play, Dos Pueblos is 7-1 overall and winners of seven straight games and Santa Barbara is 5-3 and on a three-game win streak. The Dons surprised the Chargers in last year's game, and the two teams ended up tying for the league title with Ventura.

In other highlights of the week, Dos Pueblos travels to rival San Marcos in boys water polo on Tuesday, with a shot at sharing the league title. The Chargers need a win to finish 7-1 and tie for Ventura for the title.

The County Cross Country Championships are Thursday at River Park in Lompoc. The San Marcos boys and girls teams are looking strong heading into the final races before CIF competition.

The CIF playoff pairings for girls volleyball will be announced Thursday and the boys water polo draw comes out on Saturday. Eight-man football and girls tennis will be released Monday, Oct. 30. The release date for the 11-man football playoffs is Sunday, Nov. 5.

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!
