Lacrosse Notes: Playoffs start today

The playoffs are here.

BOYS

No. 1 Foothill vs. No. 16 Marin Academy
No. 8 Miramonte vs. No. 9 Acalanes
No. 4 Monte Vista vs. No. 13 Las Lomas
No. 5 Amador Valley vs. No. 12 Clayton Valley
No. 2 De La Salle vs. No. 15 Marin Catholic
No. 7 Piedmont vs. No. 10 Davis
No. 3 San Ramon Valley vs. No. 14 Campolindo
No. 6 Berkeley vs. No. 11 University-SF

Thoughts: You can probably expect all of the East Bay Athletic League teams to move on and you’ll probably see an all-EBAL semifinal. Miramonte and Acalanes in the first round is the best game for Wednesday, and as far as potential second round games, the Monte Vista vs. Amador Valley game would be a doozy.

GIRLS

No. 1 Monte Vista has a bye
No. 8 Granada vs. No. 9 Marin Catholic
No. 4 Foothill vs. No. 13 Berkeley
No. 5 California vs. No. 12 Campolindo
No. 2 Amador Valley vs. No. 15 Las Lomas
No. 7 Acalanes vs. No. 10 Davis
No. 3 Carondelet vs. No. 14 San Ramon Valley
No. 6 Redwood vs. No. 11 Miramonte

Thoughts: Can anyone here challenge Monte Vista? The closest anyone has come are two hard-fought losses by Carondelet. A potential Carondelet and Amador Valley semifinal would be a great one. Acalanes is dangerous as a seven seed, so watch out. Probably the best chance of a second-round upset, and keeping it from being an all-EBAL semifinal.

Rankings
