As expected, Harbor City Narbonne was made the top-seeded team for the Los Angeles City Section Division I football playoffs by a selection committee Saturday morning.
The Gauchos (10-0) wrapped up the Marine League title with a 53-7 rout of Gardena and will host No. 16 Los Angeles Locke in the first round Friday. If seedings hold, they will face No. 4 Carson in the semifinals in a rematch of Narbonne's 26-20 win Oct. 5.
"Winning league is nice, but any coach or player would gladly trade that for a ring," Narbonne Coach Manuel Douglas said. "Our goal is to make the state tournament, and to do that we have to win City, so we still have work to do."
Coliseum League champion Los Angeles Crenshaw (9-1) was seeded No. 2 and hosts No. 15 Arleta, the East Valley League runner-up, in the first round. An intriguing first-round matchup is 14th-seeded Sylmar, which has won five straight, at Western League winner Venice (8-2), seeded No. 3.
