Tigers clinch playoffs
Douglas High School clinched a berth in the Division I Northern Region football playoffs Thursday night, courtesy of Carson’s 45-28 Sierra League victory against Bishop Manogue in Reno.

Douglas (1-2, 2-6) is guaranteed the No. 4 seed coming into its regular season finale at home against Carson this coming Friday. Even if the Tigers lose, they own the tie-breaker by virtue of their 26-16 win over Manogue last week. Galena secured the league’s No. 2 seed on Friday night with a 26-21 victory against Damonte Ranch, which will be the No. 3.
