Friday playoff predictions

Posted by Staff Writer Eric Branch:

NCS Division II quarterfinals:
The pick: Petaluma 27, Cardinal Newman 14
Comment: The double wing bites the dust. The Trojans just have too much talent.

The pick: Casa Grande 38, Las Lomas 30
Comment: Take the over. Las Lomas has scored 63 points in a game this season and allowed 62 in another.

NCS Division IV quarterfinals
The pick: Middletown 42, Valley Christian 22
Comment: Unless VC assistant coach Rod Woodson suits up, Mustangs should roll to their 11th straight win.
