CIF-SS Boys Division II-A Bracket:
Quarterfinal Results--(Mar. 1, 2003)
A few years ago, this would have been considered a dream semifinals....Mater Dei vs. Redondo Union. Somehow all the years we can remember that never happened and those two teams were never in the same division. Now they are. But even today, it's still a pretty big headline game, and in the other half of the semifinal bracket, Brea Olinda vs. Mayfair isn't exactly chopped liver either. Unfortunately, the quarterfinals were not as close as many expected, and Mater Dei wound up winning by 30, Redondo finally managed to defeat a Russell Otis-coached Dominguez team (even if Jim Nielsen couldn't be on the bench, we're pretty certain he enjoyed it), and Brea Olinda walloped San Marcos to advance. The only "alternate site" that has yet been selected is Sonora for the Brea vs. Mayfair game. When Redondo figures out where to hold the game, we'll post it here.
