The number of Orange County football teams still alive in the CIF-SS playoffs gets smaller each week, and so does the number of Student Sections battling for the weekly title of OCVarsity Student Section of the Week.
But the quality, on the field and in the stands, is impressive.
This week, for the CIF-SS quarterfinals, we saw a couple of great South County battles in the stands and two amazing examples of road warriors. (We know because they included the hashtag #ocvfans in their tweets.)
Of course, the road warriors were the two sections that OCVarsity ranked Nos. 1 and 2 in the county this season.
Unfortunately, a few more county teams and student sections had their football seasons come to an end Friday. (The good news? Basketball season starts Monday — and we know the student sections will be back out in force for that, too.)
Here is a look at this week’s finalists and our OCVarsity Student Section of the Week for the quarterfinals.
FINALIST #1: MISSION VIEJO DIABLO INFERNO
The Inferno was lit again in their big home game against the top team in the county, Mater Dei.
The Diablos hosted Mater Dei in the quarterfinals for the second year in a row. No controversial postgame quotes this time. (Coach Bob Johnson is an OG btw.) But a rowdy group of of students rocking the black and red of Mission Viejo were definitely needed.

The Inferno turned it up a notch and went nuts during a 56-17 loss to the Monarchs.
It was a great way for the Diablo Inferno to to end football student section season – and a good sign for the basketball season.
FINALISTS #2: LOS ALAMITOS LOS LOCOS
Road Warriors. Los Locos took their show on the road again and dominated.
LOS AL LOCOS never stop waving the Griffin flag. LOS AL is the LOUDEST and the PROUDEST all the way to the end. THANK YOU SENIOR JAKE MAFFETT for giving us YOUR BEST BANG every week! We will miss you! #lahsactivities #ocvfans #losalfootball #losallocos @LosAlSongCheer pic.twitter.com/HrCq0Vi9cQ

Rocking the school’s red and blue colors, Los Locos showed their love for the Griffins with their typical cheers and chants.
It was a great showing for Los Locos despite a 49-32 loss to Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks.
NOBODY PUTS A LOCO IN A CAGE!!!! WHAT’S THAT BLUE HAZE???? IT’S LOS AL! #bluehaze #losallocos #lahsactivities #ocvfans @SteveFryer @LosAlSongCheer @LosAlFootball @LosAlamitosHigh pic.twitter.com/B1h7gAK3cX

The football season is over, but Los Locos is known to turn it up several notches for the basketball season.
FINALISTS #3: CAPO VALLEY CAGE
The Cage went to work Friday as their Cougars took on Santiago of Corona.
A sea of black went wild and rocked the stands. It was never ending for The Cage.

In return, Capo Valley kept the season alive with a 28-20 victory.
It was one of those situations where The Cage was rattled underwater and the Shark paid the price.
Don’t rattle The Cage.
AND THE WINNER IS … THE VILLA PARK BLACK PACK
The Black Pack went on the road again — and they took a much larger group of kids this time.
ON THE ROAD AGAIN!!!! The Villa Park BLACK PACK is pumped for tonight’s CIF ROUND 2 Football Game! 72 MILES won’t stop our SCHOOL SPIRIT!!! @vphs_football @dancich @vphsspirit @ocvarsity @CIFSS @CIFSS @vphsPride @VPSpartan @vphs_cheer @MAlvarez02 #ocvfans @SoCalSections pic.twitter.com/VqOcit1hOQ

You couldn’t tell which side was the home side thanks to The Black Pack’s strong showing. The Saugus Blue Crew definitely had their work cut out for them.
It was a loud one at Saugus and The Black Pack never stopped cheering. The Spartans definitely heard their classmates loud and clear as they took the 32-15 victory.
The energy, the passion, and the dedication last night was so surreal. THANK YOU, to our students, our school, and our families who made the travel to support our team! Now….

The Black Pack has another battle next week against Grace Brethren of Simi Valley, but one thing is for sure: The Black Pack is the OCVarsity Student Section of the week for the third time season — and it keeps getting bigger and better.
Over 100 Students rode busses 75 miles to support OUR Football Team! OUR SPIRIT NEVER SLEEPS We had so much FUN!!!#CIFPostUp #ocvfans @CIFState @CIFSS @ocvarsity @SoCalSections @MAlvarez02 @vphsspirit @VPasb @VPHSathletics @OrangeUnifiedCA @vphs_cheer @vphs_football pic.twitter.com/09ihMIk9Qd

It’s a Black Pack party at home or on the road.
