Here is a look at scores through Friday night, Sept. 20. Check back later in the weekend for completed scoreboard through Saturday, Sept. 21.
1. De La Salle (Concord) 4-0
Defeated Del Oro of Loomis 41-3. RBs John Velasco and Antoine Custer both scored early TDs. A shock to some was the Spartans actually trying an on-side kick after their second touchdown. RECAP
2. St. John Bosco (Bellflower) 4-0
Defeated Loyola (Los Angeles) 24-10. The Braves will now have a week off.
3. Folsom 4-0
Defeated San Ramon Valley (Danville) 67-36. Jake Browning throws for eight more touchdowns and now has 24 for the season.
4. Serra (Gardena) 4-0
Defeated Dorsey (Los Angeles) 48-18. No close call this week for the Cavaliers.
5. Mater Dei (Santa Ana) 4-0
Defeated Santa Monica 37-0. We’re not worried about a fairly weak schedule so far because it’s obvious what’s in front of the Monarchs in the Trinity League.
6. Mission Viejo 4-0
Defeated La Habra 47-21. Solid win for the Diablos in the aftermath of their triumph one week ago against Don Bosco Prep of New Jersey.
7. Vista Murrieta (Murrieta) 3-0
Defeated Redlands East Valley (Redlands) 69-21. But with Chaminade beating Oaks Christian and Corona Centennial losing to Alemany, it could be tougher for the Broncos to get a CIF Open Division bowl game bid even if they are 14-0 at the end of the section playoffs.
8. Servite (Anaheim) 3-1
Defeated No. 25 Edison (Huntington Beach) 31-14. This was a team that beat the Friars last season. They’ve already matched last year’s win total, too.
9. Long Beach Poly (Long Beach) 3-1
Defeated No. 20 Bakersfield 27-7. The Jackrabbits only led 6-0 at halftime and played great in the second half for the second straight week.
10. Centennial (Corona) 2-2
Lost to No. 12 Alemany (Mission Hills) 45-28. That’s two losses in a row for the Huskies since they set CIF Southern Section record for total offense yards in single game.
11. Bellarmine (San Jose) 3-0
Defeated Piedmont Hills (San Jose) 41-21. The Bells will remain No. 2 in the S.F. Bay Area behind De La Salle.
12. Alemany (Mission Hills) 4-0
Defeated No. 10 Centennial (Corona) 45-28. The tough call in next week’s rankings isn’t whether the Warriors will be in the top 10 but should be in front of Long Beach Poly.
13. St. Bonaventure (Ventura) 3-1
Defeated Atascadero 35-24. Unfortunately, the Seraphs will have to drop in the rankings again next week to stay behind Corona Centennial due to head-to-head loss.
14. (13) Oaks Christian (Westlake Village) 3-1
Lost to No. 22 Chaminade (West Hills) 21-14 on Thursday. The Lions will now try to avoid losing to Crenshaw of Los Angeles for a second straight season. RECAP
15. Oceanside 3-1
Defeated Poway 61-0. Impressive win helps set up San Diego Section No. 1 vs. No. 2 showdown next week against Mission Hills.
16. Palo Alto 1-1
Lost on Saturday to Archbishop Mitty (San Jose) 34-14. There’s one more WCAL team to look seriously at after Bellarmine and Serra.
17. Elk Grove 4-0
Defeated Sheldon (Sacramento) 55-0. This was the same team that had a QB throw for eight TDs in one game two weeks ago.
18. Pleasant Grove (Elk Grove) 4-0
Defeated Inderkum (Sacrmento) 33-19. Despite loss, Inderkum still looks like one of the top D2 teams in Northern California.
19. Serra (San Mateo) 1-1
Defeated Encinal (Alameda) 49-13. Encinal was 2-0 but this one was over at halftime.
20. Bakersfield 2-2
Lost to No. 9 Long Beach Poly (Long Beach) 27-7. Oaks Christian losing to Chaminade also will cause the Drillers to drop.
21. Hart (Newhall) 3-0
Defeated Ridgeview (Bakersfield) 56-7. The Indians’ win earlier over Chaminade also gets much more significant with ‘Nade topping Oaks Christian.
22. Chaminade (West Hills) 3-1
Defeated No. 14 Oaks Christian (Westlake Village) 21-14. Up next for Ed Croson’s crew is Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks, but in two weeks. RECAP
23. Granite Bay 2-1
Defeated Vacaville 46-28. Vaca was 2-0 and was playing at home.
24. Notre Dame (Sherman Oaks) 3-1
Defeated Birmingham (Lake Balboa) 28-3. With Alemany and Chaminade also winning, this sets up the Knights to perhaps go on a rankings run since they are playing both later on.
25. Edison (Huntington Beach) 2-1
Lost to No. 8 Servite (Anaheim) 31-14. The Chargers still have to play Mater Dei too before starting the Sunset League.
Archbishop Mitty (San Jose) 2-0
Defeated No. 14 Palo Alto 34-14.
Bishop Amat (La Puente) 3-1
Defeated Charter Oak (Covina) 45-21.
