Division IV HS Playoff Game in Question

Judge to hear case today

Division IV high school playoff games are in question after a judge ordered a playoff game suspended over the weekend.

The Colfax Falcons were on a bus from Placer County to play the Oakdale Mustangs in Stanislaus County Friday when a judge ordered the game suspended.

The court order came over a conflict involving the paperwork of a player who was allowed to play for Placer High School in Auburn.

Because that player was ruled ineligible by the California Interscholastic Federation, the federation said Placer High must forfeit five games.

That sent Colfax to the playoffs instead of Placer High.

After the suspension of the game Friday, an Alameda County Superior Court is scheduled to hear arguments Monday.
