Point Loma's Pointer football team earned a coveted first-round bye in upcoming CIF playoffs.

While a final regular season loss to Christian High caused some shifts, the Pointers received the No. 4 seed in Div. I, making them the 12th highest-rated team in the entire San Diego Section of CIF.

The bye allows them to have a week of rest and practice before preparing for their first game in the quarterfinals. Point Loma is scheduled to play the winner of the game between No. 5 Oceanside and No. 12 Bonita Vista on Friday, Nov. 17. It is likely that winner will be Oceanside, since Bonita Vista finished its season with a 0-10 record.

And that first game will be played at home under the Pointers new lights, also a first time event. The game is under CIF control, so seniors will have to pay for entrance with kickoff at 7 p.m.

If the Pointers win their quarterfinal game, it is possible they will next meet #1 seed El Camino, a team that defeated the Pointers 34-12 in their season opener in August.
