Garden Grove (12-0) vs. Norwalk (11-1)

Saturday, 7 p.m. at Excelsior Adult School

Outlook: The top-seeded Argonauts hit the road for their semifinal tilt against the fourth-seeded Lancers. It figures to be quite a challenge.

Norwalk, the second-place finisher from the Suburban League, has scored 63 and 64 points in the first two playoff games.

The Lancers and their double-wing offense have been chewing up yards all season. There are three rushers who have topped 1,000 yards. Elijhaa Penny leads the way with 1,339 yards and 20 touchdowns. Adrian Gonzales has rushed for 1,297 yards and 17 touchdowns, and Billy Moore enters with 1,110 yards and 15 touchdowns.

That's a lot for any team to have to deal with.

Garden Grove defeated Bellflower (41-13) and Beckman (38-21) to advance.

Sean Young has been at the center of everything this season. He leads the team in rushing (1,346 yards) and has passed for 1,447 yards. He has scored a total of 32 touchdowns. He is averaging 112 rushing and 120 passing yards a game.

What will it take to send the Argonauts to the finals?

The teams met in last year's playoffs with Norwalk rushing for 435 yards in a 38-6 victory.

Will this year be different?
