After defeating West Hills High School last week, the Ramona High Bulldogs have earned themselves a spot in the first CIF semifinal game.
This Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, the Dawgs will face off against Serra High School at Ramona High at 7 p.m. The Bulldogs are playing for a chance to go to the Division III CIF championship game.
The championship game is normally played at Qualcomm Stadium where the Chargers and Aztecs play, but this year, Coach Baldwin said, the defining game for Division III schools will be played at the newly-remodeled Escondido High Stadium.
Pre-sale tickets open up for sale Tuesday and Wednesday from 4-6 p.m. at the stadium ticket booth on Ramona High School's campus by the entrance to the stadium.
CIF prices are $11 for adults and $7 for students and seniors. No passes will be accepted except CIF passes.
The gates will open up at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 23.
According to football head coach Damon Baldwin, Ramona has not been to the CIF Championship game in football since 1970 when they were in the small school league.
This is only the fourth time in the history of the school that Ramona High has been to the CIF semifinals, Baldwin said.
