The Encinal High School Jets football team will advance to the second round of the North Coast Section (NCS) Div. III playoffs after a 49-0 rout of Petaluma High Saturday, Nov. 3 at Stargell Field.
Even though the Jets and Trojans entered the tournament as the eighth and ninth seeds, respectively, Encinal overwhelmed Petaluma with its athletic talent.
The Jets’ offense took off before most people in attendance could get to their seats.
Both Encinal and Alameda high school football teams qualified for the North Coast Section (NCS) Div. III playoffs. The teams will compete in the first round of the playoffs this weekend.
The Jets were awarded the eighth seed out of 14 teams. They will take on Petaluma High Saturday, Nov. 3, at the Nail House. The Hornets were seeded 12th in the tournament. They will face fifth-seed Miramonte of Orinda Friday, Nov. 2.
The team of Jean Cho and Shirley Lee won the Alameda Women’s Golf Club Partner Eclectic Championship on the Jack Clark Course.
The tournament was played over two days on Oct. 11 and 18. In this tournament the two partners play each of the 18 holes of golf twice (in two days) and the best net score for each of the 18 holes is counted for the final score. Thus, each team of two has four chances to get a good net score on each hole. The other three scores are discarded.
