Palm Desert and Palm Springs were the lone two local teams in action Friday night. Both the Aztecs and Indians were in the quarterfinals of the CIF-SS playoffs and looked to keep their journey alive with a win.

However, both teams suffered defeat, ending their season in disappointment.

Palm Desert hosted Santa Barbara High School in Division 8 and lost in a thrilling shootout. The Aztecs were unable to stop the Dons offense, led by junior QB Deacon Hill, who is committed to Wisconsin. Hill had a huge game, tossing for 4 TD and rushing for one.

PD head coach Shane McComb and his team have now been eliminated in the second round of the playoffs for a third consecutive season.

Score: Final Santa Barbara - 42 @ Palm Desert - 32

Palm Springs traveled to Torrance to take on North in Division 9. The Indians had trouble stopping the high-powered rushing attack from the Saxons. The offense also had a hard time finding any rhythm, scoring just one touchdown in the game.

Final Palm Springs - 10 @ North - 41

With both teams losing their respective game, the 2019 high school football season is now over for our local teams.
