Prep football recap: Not a lot of surprises in Friday’s NCS football playoffs

There were a number of lopsided games in the first round of the North Coast Section football playoffs, including big wins by San Ramon Valley, James Logan, Pittsburg and Concord. Bishop O’Dowd survived in Division III play with a 16-13 win over Acalanes.

Pittsburg’s Harris Ross (pictured above) led the Pirates to a surprisingly easy 55-29 win over Monte Vista in Division I play. He ran for 269 yards and four touchdowns. Pitt’s win avenged a 44-12 loss to the Mustangs two months ago.
