Boys' lacrosse: Playoffs continue on Wednesday

April 29, 2008 |  1:57 pm

Playoff action in Southern Section boys' lacrosse continues Wednesday with semifinal action in Orange County after the top four seeds all won opening-round games Monday.

The schedule:
No. 1 Foothill (19-2) at No. 4 JSerra (17-5), Wednesday, 5 p.m.
No. 2 Corona del Mar (16-3) at No. 3 St. Margaret’s (20-2), Wednesday, 7:30 p.m.

The Orange County championship game will be Friday at Trabuco Hills at 7 p.m.; the Orange County champion will take on the North Division champion on May 9 at Trabuco Hills for the unofficial Southern Section championship.

The six-team field for the North Division (Los Angeles/Ventura/Santa Barbara Counties) playoffs, which open Saturday, will be determined Wednesday evening.

Among the leading contenders for berths are Palos Verdes, Beverly Hills, and Peninsula from the Bay League; Chaminade, Crespi, and Loyola from the Mission League; and freelance teams Oak Park and Palisades. Cate, which won the Condor League championship and would be a strong contender for a berth, has elected not to participate in the playoffs because of calendar conflicts and a disparity in school size.

"We’re very happy to be the top small school team in the Southern Section," said Rams Coach Aps Kinnan.
