Huskies Battle for CIF Playoff Spot
By Stu Bownes
The Mammoth Huskies rolled over Desert Christian Friday night in Mammoth to set up a very interesting upcoming final game of the season this coming Friday, Nov. 8. The Desert Mountain League has become a lot more competitive than I remember it to be, especially this season. Things are getting exciting, the Huskies are not out of the CIF 2013 playoffs just yet. If the Huskies can find a way to beat Silver Valley in Silver Valley this Friday then it’s very possible that there would be a 3 way tie for 3rd place in the DML. The top 3 teams from the DML go to the CIF Playoffs. This is how things are shaping up. Right now the 3 and 3 Huskies are tied with Silver Valley. Excelsior, now 4 and 2 occupies the 3rd spot but they have a date with disaster coming Friday with the DML’s number 2 team Boron in Boron. I expect Boron will prevail and Excelsior will end up 4 and 3. Vasquez could not seal the deal for the third spot last Friday night as they went down to Excelsior. Vasquez is now in 4th place with a 4-3 record. Vasquez is done with League play this season so they won’t be able to improve their record in the final week as they have a non-league game. So it is very possible for the Huskies, Vasquez and Excelsior to wind up in a 3 way tie.
