Pigskin Idol Game of the Week: San Diego Jewish Academy Lions 36, Calvin Christian Crusaders 30
The first round of the playoffs are in the books and the San Diego Jewish Academy Lions have defeated the Calvin Christian Crusaders 36-30.
With this victory, the Lions have advanced to the Division VI 8-man football championship where they will face the Foothills Christian Knights. The game time has yet to be determined due to the San Diego Jewish Academy electing not to play on Friday nights due to religious purposes.
These two teams faced off earlier in the season, and it was the Knights who came away with the win over the Lions 53-14.
Foothills Christian had an explosive start to their playoff run after beating the Borrego Springs Rams 46-8.
