Three undefeated East Bay teams were chosen by California Interscholastic Federation commissioners to continue their football seasons while two other eligible local teams were left out of Sunday's regional and state game selections.

Clayton Valley Charter and Campolindo will play in Northern California regional games this weekend. De La Salle was picked as the North's Open Division team and will advance straight into the premier state championship game in Carson on Dec. 20.

But McClymonds, which was 12-0 on the field before recently forfeiting four games for use of an ineligible player, was left out of the Division IV regional contest it had played in the past two seasons. Salesian was also eligible for the game after winning the NCS Division V title, but was left out in favor of Central Catholic-Modesto (10-3) and Capital Christian-Sacramento (13-0).

Clayton Valley Charter (14-0) will host Oakdale (13-1) in the NorCal Division II regional game on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Campolindo (14-0) was picked for the NorCal Division III game and will play Sutter (13-0) on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at Acalanes.

De La Salle (13-0), which beat Pittsburg 35-0 on Saturday night for its 23rd straight North Coast Section title, will play Centennial-Corona (12-2) in the Open Division state game in Carson for the fourth time. The Spartans are 2-1 against the Huskies, who upset defending Open Division state champion St. John Bosco-Bellflower in the Southern Section's Pac-5 championship to earn the spot.

They have a bye this weekend because the Open Division regional games were eliminated prior to the season.

De La Salle, Campolindo and Clayton Valley Charter's selections were all expected. McClymonds had been considered a favorite for the Division IV game again until transfer quarterback Kevin Davidson had his eligibility appeal denied by the CIF in late November, and the four games he played in were declared forfeits.

McClymonds is particularly upset because Davidson was originally ruled eligible to play by Oakland Section commissioner Russell White before new information about his residency was investigated in the middle of the season.

"We didn't do anything wrong -- the school or the kids," McClymonds coach Michael Peters said. "We played a kid the commissioner ruled eligible at the time. It wasn't the school's fault or the kids' fault at all. It's very disappointing."

Salesian coach Chad Nightingale was also surprised to find out his team wasn't selected. The Pride was 12-1 (including a forfeit win over McClymonds) and played a challenging schedule.

"I really did think we'd get the nod over Capital Christian, to be honest," Nightingale said. "When you looked at the schedule we played this year, we did what we were supposed to do."

According to the CIF, the Division IV game in the north involved much deliberation and took three rounds of voting to make the final selections.

"That one pretty much had the most discussion of all the divisions," the CIF's Jim Monico said on a conference call with reporters Sunday afternoon.
