Football: Pac-5 Division final is a dream matchup
The stands are jam packed at Angel Stadium in Anaheim and it looks evenly divided between Monarchs red and white and Poly green and gold. The team captains are meeting at midfield for the pre-game coin toss.
Moore League champion Poly (10-3) has won 18 CIF titles and Trinity League runner-up Mater Dei (11-2) has won nine. Mater Dei leads 6-5-1 head-to-head and the teams are 1-1-1 in CIF finals, the last meeting ending in a tie in the Division I final in 1999 at Angel Stadium (then called Edison Field).
