*For your TREAT…THERE WILL BE NO AFTER SCHOOL PRACTICE ON MONDAY, 10/31/16….AND THAT IS NO TRICK

GOOD JOB AT SIMI VALLEY AND NOW….and 2 Charger wins!

*THIS WEEK…ON TO YOUR LAST LEAGUE FOOTBALL GAME… AT OAK PARK!

 

*(THIS IS ALSO THE VERY LAST JV GAME OF THE FOOTBALL SEASON)

 

THE AWAY OAK PARK GAME IS HUGE!

*Agoura VARSITY FOOTBALL is now in FIRST PLACE IN THE CANYON LEAGUE

*IF THEY BEAT OAK PARK THEY WILL GO TO CIF PLAYOFFS UNDEFEATED!

THIS IS THE SENARIO FOR NEXT WEEKS GAME(S)…. AND PLAYOFFS AT THIS TIME PICTURE:

 

*Royal beat Oak Park last Friday…lost to Agoura, and will play Simi this Friday. They are 1-1 in League.

*Oak Park has one win vs. Simi and the one loss to Royal. They are 1-1 in League.

*Simi has been beaten by Oak Park and Agoura and is 0-2….and out OUT OF CIF PLAYOFFS.

*AGOURA is 2-0 in League Play. They have beaten Royal and Simi.

 

*The CHARGERS MUST BEAT OAK PARK ON FRIDAY TO BE THE OUTRIGHT FIRST PLACE TEAM IN THE CANYON LEAGUE AND GO TO CIF PLAYOFFS.

*IF AGOURA LOOSES TO OAK PARK, AND ROYAL WINS, THE TWO SCHOOLS WILL BE 2-1 IN LEAGUE AND… THERE WILL BE A ‘COIN TOSS’ TO PROCLAIM THE LEAGUE CHAMPION

(THAT HAPPENED LAST YEAR AND AGOURA WON THE COIN TOSS)

*ONLY ONE TEAM FROM THE CANYON LEAGUE WILL GO ON TO CIF THE FOLLOWING FRIDAY EVENING!

*If that is Agoura…we will not know where they will be playing until late on Sunday evening, 11/6/16
