ROUNDUP: Four Long Beach Football Teams Make CIF-SS Quarterfinals

Friday was a memorable and historic night for Long Beach football and the Moore League. The league went 3-1 in the first round to advance three teams to the quarterfinals for the first time since the early 1980s. Long Beach Poly, Jordan, and Compton all won games–it was the first time the Panthers had advanced in 30 years and the first time in more than a decade for Compton.

St. Anthony also easily won its opener, and the Saints make a fourth team that looks like it could be primed for a deep playoff run.

The only loss for Long Beach was a narrow defeat for Millikan on the road at their bracket’s No. 1 seed.
