The North Section High School Football Playoffs continue tonight in what should be a soggy night in the North State. The 4th-seeded Chico High Panthers travel to Redding to take on top-seeded Enterprise in one of the semi-final match-ups. The other will be on the ridge in Paradise where the Bobcats take on possibly the hottest team in the section, Foothill.


Earlier this season Paradise waxed the Cougards 53-25, but head coach Rick Prinz of the Bobcats says this Foothill team is playing much better and is a dangerous team....



The good news for Paradise is that all of their injured players are healthy and ready to go, including senior wide-out Johnny Porter. Porter sprained his left ankle in a late season loss to Red Bluff. It was a bad sprain and Porter was on crutches for a week, but he has practiced for the last week and a half and looks good on the practice field. You can hear the game tonight at 7pm with our pre-game show at 6:45 on 101.7 FM and AM 1340 Fox Sports. You can also hear the game on our website at
