The Golden Surfboard is only applicable in the regular season matchup between Torrey Pines and La Costa Canyon, but I think either team would be more satisfied with a postseason win.
With that being said, the Mavericks are currently in possession of the Golden Surfboard after a 27-21 win over the Falcons two weeks ago, but it will be Torrey Pines who will be moving on to the next round of playoffs to take on the Grizzlies of Mission Hills after shutting out La Costa Canyon 40-0 on Friday night.
After Torrey Pines finished their regular season with a home loss to the Mavericks, they were ready to come back strong as they traveled to La Costa Canyon this week.
Sully O’Brien was the star of the show for the Falcons as he rushed for 3 touchdowns and looked flawless running the ball.
Next week will be no easy task for the Falcons when they take on the undefeated Mission Hills Grizzlies who took down the Grossmont Foothillers from El Cajon, CA 52-42.
The two teams met earlier in the season and it was the Grizzlies who were victorious, 24-23 over Torrey Pines, when the Falcons went for the 2-point conversion and were not successful.
As Torrey Pines proved tonight, the regular season is in the past, and postseason wins hold all relevance now.

PREVIEW: I could be crazy, but this season just continues to get better! This week, the Prep Pigskin Report will be covering 22 CIF Playoff games from across the county.
A monumental game being featured is a Week 11 rematch between the Torrey Pines Falcons and the La Costa Canyon Mavericks.
In Week 11, this matchup was the Prep Pigskin Report Game of the Week and it did not disappoint as the Mavericks charged into Torrey Pines and defeated the Falcons 27-21 in the Beach Bowl. Along with the win, the Mavericks received the “Golden Surfboard” trophy for this historic rivalry.
The quarterback for La Costa Canyon, Jake Neufeld, was the star of the show as he ended that game with 140 yards on the ground and 320 in the air. On the season, Neufeld has thrown for 1,701 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also has rushed for 476 yards and 12 touchdowns. These statistics were enough to make Neufeld a Silver Pigskin Fan Vote Candidate.
As for the visiting Torrey Pines, they will be ready to attack this game with a vengeance. Despite the Falcons possessing a 21-6 lead over the Mavericks in the first half of this fight, they were held scoreless in the second half.
Both teams are more than deserving to be in the current position that they are, and this will be a matchup in the Open Division of the CIF San Diego Section Playoffs that you will not want to miss!
