Another end to the football season means another playoff run for Birmingham Community Charter High School’s (BCCHS) varsity football team.

“I’m pretty satisfied and we’ve had a good run” senior varsity defensive nose-tackle Kyle Matson said.

With another successful season in the books, BCCHS’s football team had a record of 8-2 overall and 5-0 in their division. That isn’t the end of the road quite yet. Playoffs started on Nov. 9 with their first game against San Fernando High School (SFHS).

For two years in a row, BCCHS’s team has not been able to play home games due to the remodeling of the track and field. They’ve been having “home” games at Cleveland High School for the meantime.

“We’re all disappointed about it but it really hasn’t affected our play on the field, but it just is something we can’t control,” Matson said.

Another setback this year was the annual homecoming game that didn’t end up happening. Taft Charter High School decided to forfeit the game as they haven’t won a game this season. With that, BCCHS still had the homecoming parade, dance and tailgate in spite of the game being canceled.

With the team’s goal for the championship well in reach, they have to get through playoffs first. Their first playoff game was held at Granada Hills Charter High School. BCCHS’s won 20-14 beating SFHS in the first round. BCCHS’s second playoff game was against Narbonne High School and played there as well. The final score was 63-23 as NHS was victorious the BCCHS’s football season has come to an end.

“We ended up 9-3 on the season but losing in the second round of the playoffs,” Matson said. “I have nothing to complain about but wish we played longer.”
