I’m going to the Cajon @ Brea Olinda game Saturday, with my homey Monique. I guess I’ll need to see Mater Dei and Foothill sometime soon, to round out my top five viewing.

  1. If you want to catch Cajon, Mater Dei and Foothill they all play at Mater Dei on Friday Feb 6th.
    There are 4 games starting at 3pm.
    Dana Hills v St Paul
    Villa Park v Santa Margarita
    Foothill v LB Wilson
    Cajon v Mater Dei.

    By the way great blog, I just found it.

  2. OOO! Thanks for the info! I’ve been wanting to see Foothill and Mater Dei, not to mention Santa Margarita.

    So, knowing how it’s usually run, I’d guess that the games are 3, 4:30, 6 and 7:30, respectively, right?

    And thanks for the props!

  3. Yes you are correct on the times.
    I know the Dana Hills v St Paul game is at 3pm and the Cajon v MD game is at 730pm. The two middle games are at 430 and 6pm. I believe the 430pm game is the Foothill/LB Wilson game and the 6pm is the SM v VP game.
    There is a boys game at 9pm which actually makes it good as many people stay for that game and thus if you want to leave there isnt a rush to get out.
    If you havn’t been to MD they have two large video screens that are in use for the game(or at least they were last year)
    These games are part of the Nike Extravaganza that takes place over two days. All of Saturdays games are boys games.
    Should be a great day.
