The Thacher School extended its gridiron win streak to six games Nov. 5 by defeating San Jacinto Valley Academy in the first round of CIF Southern Section playoffs, 68-42. With the win, the Toads improve to 6-2 on the season and will host Avalon (9-0) Nov. 12 at 2 p.m. on the Thacher campus. Thacher got a huge boost from senior quarterback Reese Proctor who was seven of nine passing for 195 yards and four touchdowns. The senior also did a great job on the ground for the Toads carrying the ball eight times for 49 yards and two touchdowns. If Thacher can get past Avalon and Villanova Prep can upset Faith Baptist, the two Ojai Valley teams would square off in a semifinal game Nov. 18.
