Here is a look at scores through Friday, Nov. 30. We will add the Saturday scores on Saturday night and will update this list and comments throughout the weekend. Compiled by Paul Muyskens with comments from editor Mark Tennis.
Check throughout Saturday beginning with the CIF NorCal D4 rankings as we will be adding updated CIF bowl game rankings as they are done with all divisions being done before the CIF section commissioners meet on Sunday to determine which teams will play in the regional bowl game. And be sure to watch Time Warner’s selection show from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Mark Tennis of Cal-Hi Sports will be one of the featured analysts.
1. DE LA SALLE (CONCORD) 12-0
Plays Saturday vs. No. 19 James Logan in CIF North Coast Section Division I championship. Spartan coaches think Logan is the best team they’ve played in an NCS final in recent years.
2. NARBONNE (HARBOR CITY) 13-0
Plays Saturday vs. No. 7 Crenshaw in CIF L.A. City Section Division I championship.
3. VISTA MURRIETA (MURRIETA) 13-1
Lost to No. 5 Centennial (Corona) 30-28. This loss broke a 27-game on-the-field win streak by the Broncos, which was the longest of that type (not including forfeits) in the state.
4. MATER DEI (SANTA ANA) 11-2
Plays Saturday vs. No. 12 Long Beach Poly in CIF Southern Section Pac-Five Division championship. With Vista Murrieta losing, it would appear the Monarchs are now in line to get into the SoCal Open Division game (perhaps with a rematch against Narbonne) if they can get past the Jackrabbits.
5. CENTENNIAL (CORONA) 13-1
Defeated No. 3 Vista Murrieta (Murrieta) 30-28. The Huskies stopped a two-point conversion with just over a minute left and then recovered an onside kick. They regained the title they lost to Vista Murrieta last season.
6. FOLSOM 13-0
Plays Saturday vs. No. 13 Elk Grove in CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Division II championship. Bulldogs lost in this game to Vacaville last year but won it the year before against Grant of Sacramento.
7. CRENSHAW (LOS ANGELES) 11-1
Plays Saturday vs. No. 2 Narbonne (Harbor City) in CIF L.A. City Section Division I championship. If the Cougars pull off the upset, also looks like they’d simply replace Narbonne in the Open Division.
8. ST. BONAVENTURE (VENTURA) 11-2
Season complete. Corona Centennial’s win helps the Seraphs because they handed the Huskies their only loss in season opener.
9. BELLARMINE (SAN JOSE) 11-2
Lost to St. Ignatius of San Francisco 13-10 (OT) in CIF Central Coast Section Open Division championship. The Bells were going for their fourth title in five years. SI will now advance to a NorCal bowl game, probably in Division I and probably against Granite Bay.
10. CHAMINADE (WEST HILLS) 12-2
Lost to No. 11 Serra (Gardena) 30-28. Earlier in the season, the Eagles beat Serra 28-20.
11. SERRA (GARDENA) 12-2
Defeated No. 10 Chaminade (West Hills) 30-28. The Cavs’ only other loss was to No. 2 Narbonne. They won their third CIFSS title in the last four years and we think should be a slam dunk for the CIF D2 bowl game, especially if Long Beach Poly were to beat Mater Dei for the Pac-Five title.
12. LONG BEACH POLY (LONG BEACH) 10-3
Plays Saturday vs. No. 4 Mater Dei (Santa Ana) in CIFSS Pac-Five Division championship.
13. ELK GROVE 12-1
Plays Saturday vs. No. 6 Folsom in CIFSJS D2 championship. The Herd lost their only game last season 42-28 to Folsom in the section semis.
14. EDISON (HUNTINGTON BEACH) 13-1
Defeated Villa Park 28-10 and won CIFSS Southwest Division title. This is the first CIFSS title for longtime Chargers’ coach Dave White. Despite win, his team still could face a tough challenge for D2 South bowl bid from Oceanside.
15. OCEANSIDE 11-1
Plays Saturday vs. Poway. If the Pirates win, they’d make it eight CIF San Diego Section titles in the last nine years.
16. ST. JOHN BOSCO (BELLFLOWER) 12-1*
Season complete. Best case scenario for the Braves to get a final high ranking is for Mater Dei to go all the way because they beat the Monarchs in a Trinity League game.
17. MISSION VIEJO 11-1
Season complete. Playoff loss was to Long Beach Poly.
18. OAK RIDGE (EL DORADO HILLS) 12-2
Lost to Granite Bay 35-23. The Trojans couldn’t stop the Grizzlies when it mattered and lost in the CIFSJS D1 championship. Granite Bay won its second straight title and will get to climb back up into next week’s rankings.
19. JAMES LOGAN (UNION CITY) 12-1
Plays Saturday vs. No. 1 De La Salle (Concord). Insiders in the East Bay think this one could actually be close.
20. SANTA MARGARITA (RANCHO SM) 9-3
21. UPLAND 12-1
22. ALEMANY (MISSION HILLS) 9-3
23. CLOVIS NORTH (CLOVIS) 12-1
Defeated Central (Fresno) 27-10 to win first CIF Central Section Division I title. This also likely clinched a CIF D1 South bowl berth. The Broncos could even get some Open Division support if Long Beach Poly knocks off Mater Dei in the Pac-Five final.
24. NOTRE DAME (SHERMAN OAKS) 8-4
25. OAKS CHRISTIAN (WESTLAKE VILLAGE) 8-3
BUBBLE TEAMS (HOW THEY FARED)
