Calaveras football

It’s high school football postseason now and Calaveras begins with a home game while Sonora has a bye week.

Calaveras plays Western Sierra Collegiate Friday night seeded sixth in CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Division VI.

Calaveras, 4-1 in Mother Lode League play and 7-3 overall, earned a share of the MLL title. Western Sierra Collegiate Academy finished 4-6 overall and 3-2 in Sacramento Metropolitan Athletic League play, good enough for a second-place tie in their league and 11th seed in Division VI.

Asked how Calaveras coaches feel about starting at home in the first round while their league co-champs Sonora and Amador both got first-round byes, Calaveras head coach Doug Clark said this week, “We feel great. We really were not hoping for a bye because we did not want to sit a week, so getting the sixth seed is fine with us.”

Calaveras hosts Western Sierra Collegiate Academy Wolves with kickoff scheduled at 7 p.m. Friday at Frank Meyer Field in San Andreas.
