With the passing of Day Light Savings time, it can mean only one thing. It it time for the high school football playoffs. While we knew Placer and Bear River's football teams would get a bid, the Miners surprised many by also getting a bid.
The Bear River Bruins will travel to Modesto on Friday night for their first round Sac-Juaquin Section playoff game where they will go toe to toe with Central Catholic. Kick off is at 7:00 pm. The Bruins finished the season at 8-2 only falling to Placer and Center.
Many thought the Miners would be on the outside looking in in regards to the post season but their strength of schedule showed other wise. The Miners will take on top seed Franklin of Elk Grove at 7:00 pm. at Cosumnes Oaks High School in Elk Grove on Friday.
