Defeated San Ramon Valley (Danville) 47-21. Wolves showed up less than a half-hour before kickoff and scored on two long pass plays in the first half to stay in the game.
2. (2) St. John Bosco (Bellflower) 4-0
Did not play. Braves meet Crenshaw of L.A. next Friday.
3. (3) Folsom 5-0
Defeated Monterey Trail (Elk Grove) 49-21. Perhaps in response to last week’s social media outcries of running up the stats, Jake Browning and the Bulldogs scored just one touchdown in the second half after leading 42-7 at halftime.

Defeated Narbonne (Harbor City) 36-13. UCLA head coach Jim Mora was reported on the sideline watching.

Defeated Aliso Niguel (Aliso Viejo) 56-7.
7. (7) Vista Murrieta (Murrieta) 3-1
Lost to Cathedral Catholic (San Diego) 35-28. Keep in mind that Broncos were 13-0 last year until they played Corona Centennial and the year before that they were 14-0 on-the-field not counting forfeits. Considering the early scores and that Cathedral Catholic had a loss to Helix, it’s a major upset.

Did not play. Someone from our site will see the Bells next week in their WCAL opener against Serra.
12. (10) Centennial (Corona) 3-2
Defeated Carson 55-25. With Inland Empire’s Vista Murrieta losing plus St. Bonaventure falling to 3-2, might have to elevate Rancho Cucamonga in next week’s rankings. Cougars are 5-0 with win over Bishop Amat and Amat has win over Santa Margarita.
13. (13) St. Bonaventure (Ventura) 3-2
Lost to No. 10 Alemany (Mission Hills) 38-24.

23. (14) Oaks Christian (Westlake Village) 4-1
Defeated Crenshaw (Los Angeles) 45-35. This avenged a loss from last year. And despite loss and being 1-3, the Shaw could still be best team in L.A. City Section this year.
