The Lodi High School football team will play its first real home
game of the season at the Grape Bowl this week, but its playoff
showdown against McNair will be played under the Thursday night
lights instead of Friday.
The No. 12-seeded Flames (8-3) drew an against-the-odds home
game after defeating No. 5 Turlock High School (8-3) on Friday
night, and No. 13 McNair (8-3) also pulled off an upset in taking
down No. 4 Franklin High School, of Elk Grove (8-3). As the higher
seed, the Flames won the right to host the second round home game
against the Eagles in the second round of the Division I
Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs.
