1. De La Salle (Concord) 2-0
Defeated Serra (San Mateo) 21-14 on Saturday. The Spartans were trailing 14-7 in the fourth quarter, but figured out a way to beat the Padres. It was reminiscent of a 29-28 win at Serra in 2009.

Defeated No. 13 St. Bonaventure (Ventura) 69-55 on Saturday at UT San Diego Honor Bowl. RECAP
3. St. John Bosco (Bellflower) 2-0
Defeated No. 17 Clovis North (Fresno) 48-0. This was easier for the Braves than the opener against Dominguez. Time will tell if Bosco is that good or Clovis North isn’t nearly as good as last season.

Defeated No. 8 Oceanside 50-39. RECAP
5. Folsom 2-0

Defeated Downey 66-28. Coltin Gerhart had five TDs in the first half.
8. Oceanside 1-1
Lost to No. 4 Serra (Gardena) 50-39 at the UT San Diego Honor Bowl. This loss may not hurt the Pirates too much in the next rankings since No. 6, No. 10 and No. 12 lost as well. RECAP

Defeated St. Paul (Santa Fe Springs) 56-7 on Thursday.
