Not only is Brentwood’s football team seeded Number 2 in the CIF Northeast Division playoffs, the Eagles will play a first round game at home for the first time in 10 years.
Brentwood will oppose Desert Christian, the third place team from the Desert Mountain League, Saturday, November 17 at 1 p.m.
Brentwood has a 9-1 record and is seeded behind only St. Margaret’s. The Eagles concluded their regular season with a 28-7 win over Campbell Hall on Friday, November 9.
Brentwood is perennially strong but has had to go elsewhere for playoff games because its campus field doesn’t have lights. The CIF requires playoff games to be contested on Friday nights unless both teams agree to a day game.
In his 29th year at Brentwood, Coach Patrick Brown is fielding one of his best teams. Brentwood’s only loss was to Paraclete, which plays in a higher division.
Brown was concerned about Campbell Hall’s explosive offense, but Brentwood controlled the ball on four long drives, limiting the time Campbell Hall’s offensive players would be on the field.
Quarterback Mason Moss scored on a two-yard run, then threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to tight end Charlie James. A two-yard scoring run by Ian Shaw increased Brentwood’s lead to 21-0.
After Campbell Hall scored its touchdown Daniel James, the younger brother of Charlie James, returned an onsides kick 49 yards for the game’s final touchdown.
