The postseason continues tonight (Friday) for both the Sac-Joaquin and Northern Section football teams in the mid-valley.

Yuba City High represents the Sac-Joaquin in a Division III quarterfinal matchup at home against Patterson beginning at 7 p.m. at Honker Field. 

The two have not played since a 2015 postseason contest that Patterson won at home over YC, 73-42. The Honkers are 0-2 against Patterson since at least 2004. 

YC (7-3), seeded No. 4, was off last week as one of four teams with a bye in the division. Patterson defeated No. 5 Burbank (Sacramento), 38-6, to advance into the quarterfinals. 

Patterson (9-2) won the Central California League with a perfect 6-0 mark in conference.

Sutter (7-1) vs. Central Valley (4-6)

The Huskies open NSCIF D-III playoffs at home against No. 8 Central Valley of Shasta Lake beginning at 7 p.m. tonight at Wayne Gadberry Field in Sutter. 

It’s the first matchup between the teams since 2013 when CV eclipsed Sutter, 35-31, in the semifinals of the D-II playoffs. 


Wheatland (3-7) at Gridley (5-4)

Head coach Andy Fatten will kickoff his postseason coaching tonight on the road at No. 4 Gridley. 

The Pirates, seeded No. 5, look to bounce back from a 19-16 loss at Gridley back on Oct. 22 at the Boneyard. 

The winner gets either Sutter or CV in the semifinals Nov. 19 at the highest seed available. 


Colusa (7-3) at Pierce (7-3)

Rivalries are always fun, especially in a one-game playoff like tonight’s D-IV quarterfinal at 6 p.m. in Arbuckle. 

Pierce finished second in the Sacramento Valley League – a half-game back of No. 2 seeded Paradise (7-1). Colusa ended up fourth in the SVL. 

Colusa and Pierce squared off Sept. 24 in Colusa, with the Bears winning 50-20 in regular season action. 

The winner takes on either No. 3 Williams or No. 6 East Nicolaus, which battle it out Friday in Williams beginning at 7 p.m.
