Football: Impact of Long Beach Poly forfeits

Long Beach Poly today forfeited four games for using an ineligible player.

Poly forfeited Moore League wins over Compton, Long Beach Cabrillo and Long Beach Wilson and a nonleague win over Centennial of Peoria, Ariz.

The Jackrabbits, now 3-6 overall and 2-3 in the Moore League, could still get the Moore League's third and final guaranteed berth in the CIF-SS Pac-5 Division playoffs, depending upon Friday results.

Or, Poly could be in the pool of candidates for one of the Pac-5's two at-large berths. Teams do not have to be .500 or better to be eligible for an at-large berth.

Does that make the Trinity League less likely to get both of the at-large berths?

Also, if Poly does get in as a No. 3 or as an at-large team it would play a first-round away game against another league's No. 1 team or, perhaps, a league's No. 2. That's not a great reward for a league champion, having to play Long Beach Poly in the first round.

Playoff brackets for the Pac-5 and the other 12 11-man football playoff divisions will be released Sunday an available at upon release.
