The Sac-Joaquin Section made its much-anticipated announcement Saturday regarding the location of the Division II semifinal between Rocklin and Grant. Both teams won easily Friday night to set up a battle between 12-0 unbeatens for this week. No. 2 Rocklin and No. 3 Grant had agreed before the brackets were released to play a likely third-round game on a neutral field. That field will be Prairie City Stadium at Folsom High School, which will now host both D-II semifinals. Grant and Rocklin will face off at 7:30 p.m. Saturday night in Folsom, 24-1/2 hours after Del Oro meets Folsom on the same field. The Golden Eagles are the one team from outside the top four seeds to reach the semifinals, and the win by No. 8 Del Oro over top-seeded St. Mary's gives No. 4 Folsom the chance to play one more game on its home field. That game is set for 7 p.m. Friday night.
