Football: A ticket mystery at Open Division bowl game

December 10, 2012 | 12:27 pm

The City Section ran Saturday's CIF Open Division regional bowl game at Cerritos College and reported selling 2,970 tickets at the game. Corona Centennial reported a presale of 758 tickets. Narbonne reported a presale of 61 tickets.

That's 3,789 tickets sold, but it appeared that more than 6,000 fans were at the stadium, so how did the extra people get in without tickets?

I know there's bands, cheerleaders, media, but that's not 2,000 worth of freebies. It's a ticket mystery.

The Northern California regional drew 10,197 at Sacramento State.
