The Sac-Joaquin Sections playoffs open tonight with two matchups featuring two county teams: Oak Ridge hosting Enochs in Division I and Ponderosa traveling to face Elk Grove in a D-II battle. Sierra Delta League champion Golden Sierra has a bye.

Enochs (6-4) at Oak Ridge (9-1)

The Modesto-based Eagles finished in second place in the Modesto Metro League with a 5-1 record while the second-place Trojans were 4-1 in the tough Delta River League.

Oak Ridge comes in after recent wins over Jesuit and Pleasant Grove and rides a four-game win streak.

To win their fifth straight the Trojans have to contain do-everything Enochs quarterback Shawn Munoz who has accounted for 28 touchdowns (17 passing, 11 rushing) this season.

Limit Munoz and the Eagles ground game and Oak Ridge will advance.

Ponderosa (6-4) at Elk Grove (9-1)

The Bruins very first victory two years ago when it realigned to the Delta River League came on the field and against the team they’ll see tonight. Last year, the Thundering Herd won 42-0 in Shingle Springs.

Tonight is the rubber match. Elk Grove’s only loss was to top-ranked Franklin. Ponderosa should expect to see a run-oriented attack behind Robert Frazier (1,575 yards, 17 touchdowns) and Wadus Parker (1,011 yards, 17 touchdowns).

Frazier and Parker will know Bruin linebacker Jeff Camilli and Co. by the end of the night. The Bruins should flood the box and force the Herd to beat them with the pass but Ponderosa coach Jason Tenner doesn’t need pointers to beat Elk Grove. He’s done it before.
