Division V and VI playoff brackets, quickie analysis

BY ZACH EWING Californian staff writer zewing@bakersfield.com

DIVISION V

(1) Liberty-Madera Ranchos
BYE

(9) Reedley-Immanuel
(8) Caruthers

(5) Firebaugh
BYE

BYE
(4) Lindsay


(3) Shafter
BYE

BYE
(6) Corcoran

(7) Woodlake
(10) Orosi

BYE
(2) Tollhouse-Sierra

First impressions: Shafter is riding a four-game losing streak but still got the No. 3 seed and is dangerous in a weak and shallow division. The Generals, however, haven't been playing well. Liberty-Madera Ranchos an easy call for the top seed here.

Early prediction: Semifinals: Liberty-Madera d. Firebaugh, Corcoran d. Sierra
Championship: Liberty-Madera d. Corcoran

DIVISION VI

(1) Mendota
BYE

(5) McFarland
(4) Avenal


(3) Strathmore
(6) Kennedy

BYE
(2) Farmersville

First impressions: Not much to say. It's nice for these teams to have a shot at a title, but outside of those small communities, it's hard to drum up interest for a six-team bracket. Mendota is favored to win its second straight title.

Early prediction: Semifinals: Mendota d. McFarland, Farmersville d. Strathmore
Championship: Mendota d. Farmersville
