The Pittsburg and Antioch high school football teams were the two Bay Valley Athletic League squads to earn bids last Sunday to the North Coast Section playoffs.

Pittsburg, which finished 7-1 and 5-0 in league play, earned the second seed and will host seventh seed Amador Valley on Nov. 12 at 7 p.m.

Antioch, which ended its season 6-4 and 4-1, earned the sixth seed and will travel to third seed Clayton Valley Charter also on Nov. 12 at the same time.

The winner of the Pittsburg-Amador Valley clash will face the winner of top seed De La Salle and eighth seed James Logan for the right to be the North Coast Section Open Division qualifier in the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) playoffs.

The Antioch-Clayton Valley victor will face the winner of fourth seed Monte Vista and fifth seed California for the right to face the runner-up of the open division and a spot in the CIF playoffs as the Division 1 qualifier.
