GLENDALE — Five local high school boys' soccer teams entered the season looking to qualify for the CIF Southern Section playoffs. Three of them met that objective.
Now, Crescenta Valley High, St. Francis and Glendale will seek a higher ground — a CIF championship.
Crescenta Valley, St. Francis and Glendale will be a part of the playoff focus after the CIF office unveiled its playoff pairings Monday afternoon.
Glendale earned a wild-card match, while St. Francis and Crescenta Valley will wait until Friday to begin their respective playoff runs with first-round tilts.
Glendale, which finished 9-2-8 and 6-2-6 in the Pacific League for third place behind Crescenta Valley and Burroughs, will face visiting Culver City in a Division IV wild-card match at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at Moyse Field. Culver City went 8-13-2, 5-5 in the Ocean League for third place.
