San Benito High School’s football team will open the Central Coast Section Division 1 playoffs tonight vs. Salinas.
The Balers will take on the Cowboys at Salinas, with kickoff scheduled for 7 p.m. The league rivals will meet for a second time after San Benito (6-4, 5-2 in league) won a 35-28 contest two weeks ago over Salinas (7-3, 6-1).
It’s the first round of the Open Division playoffs. If the Balers (the fifth seed among eight teams) can knock off Salinas (the fourth seed), they would play the winner of Wilcox (10-0, first seed) and Piedmont Hills (4-6, eighth seed).
