1. De La Salle (Concord) 9-0
Defeated Monte Vista (Danville) 35-7. Make it 35 straight wins by the Spartans. It’s now longer than the 34-game streak that ended in 1991 NCS final. If they get to No. 2 on school list, that’s 44 and would be next season. For what scary sights the Cal-Hi Sports Caravan saw on Halloween at DLS practice, CLICK HERE.
2. St. John Bosco (Bellflower) 9-0
Defeated No. 8 Mater Dei (Santa Ana) 24-2. In some games, it’s the offense that snares the headlines for the Braves. This time, the defense does the job after MD took early 2-0 lead.
3. Folsom 9-0
Defeated Ponderosa (Shingle Springs) 52-0. Can we say it was a very De La Salle-like ho-hum win over an overmatched foe?
4. Serra (Gardena) 9-0
Defeated St. Francis (La Canada) 35-21. The Cavs scored the 28 unanswered points to hold off a respectable showing from the Golden Knights.
5. Mission Viejo 9-0
Defeated Trabuco Hills (Mission Viejo) 35-0. RB Alex Suschek was held out due to injury but it didn’t matter. After the Diablos, which team should be sixth in the next rankings? Candidates seem to be LB Poly, Chaminade or Rancho Cucamonga. Let us know what you think in comments below.
6. Serra (San Mateo) 6-2
LOST to St. Francis (Mountain View) 41-34. The Lancers shut out the Padres 24-0 last year but that wasn’t the shocking upset this one was.
7. Hart (Newhall) 8-1
LOST to Valencia 24-19. Before the season started, the Vikings looked like just as much a favorite for the Foothill League title that the Indians were. Then Hart beat Chaminade and Hart had to start rising in the state rankings. Will these two meet again in the CIFSS Northern Division playoffs?
8. Mater Dei (Santa Ana) 7-2
LOST to No. 2 St. John Bosco (Bellflower) 24-2. The Monarch offense just hasn’t been the same the last couple of weeks.
9. Servite (Anaheim) 5-4
LOST to JSerra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano) 48-43. Great win for JSerra (finally) over one of the major powers of the Trinity League.
10. Long Beach Poly (Long Beach) 8-1
Defeated Millikan (Long Beach) 49-6. Big news, though, is that Millikan scored so Poly will not shut out the Moore League.
11. Pleasant Grove (Elk Grove) 8-1
LOST to No. 25 Oak Ridge (El Dorado Hills) 28-14. This result takes a lot of shine off of next week’s game vs. Folsom. Since Oak Ridge has 35-0 loss to Bulldogs, Pleasant Grove now will likely be just another team to get blitzed by state’s No. 3 team.
12. Chaminade (West Hills) 7-2
Defeated Harvard-Westlake (North Hollywood) 73-0. Somebody actually chose this game to do for NFHS network.
13. Rancho Cucamonga 9-0
Defeated Alta Loma 44-7 on Thursday. Sophomore Aaron Manning filled in for injured Khalil Muhammad and rushed for 205 yards and three touchdowns on 20 carries. There aren’t many 9-0 teams out there, so the Cougars could go up to the top 10 in next week’s rankings.
14. Oaks Christian (Westlake Village) 8-1
Defeated Moorpark 49-21. The Lions’ wins over Bakersfield and Crenshaw keep getting strengthened and they’re not having any trouble in the Marmonte League.
15. (20) Edison (Fresno) 9-0
Defeated San Joaquin Memorial (Fresno) 35-7. All of the upsets on Friday, though, don’t change the current dynamics in the race for D1 South bowl game berths.
16. Eastlake (Chula Vista) 8-1
Defeated Olympian (Chula Vista) 51-0. There are no bad losses for the Titans, which is unlike the two teams ranked higher by San Diego Section media (Mission Hills & Oceanside), a group that tends to be dominated by the North County. At least that’s what Steve Brand always used to tell us.
17. Centennial (Corona) 7-2
Defeated Santiago (Corona) 52-24. This was a team that lost by one score early in the season to Hart. Another blowout says to rest of CIFSS Inland Division: “Here we come.”
18. Bakersfield 7-2
Defeated Centennial (Bakersfield) 54-7. The Drillers and Fresno Edison would make for a great CIF Central Section D1 final.
19. Archbishop Mitty (San Jose) 8-0
Defeated St. Ignatius (San Francisco) 34-16. The Monarchs trailed at halftime and within span of 45 minutes or so they came back to win and Serra was upset by St. Francis. Their unbeaten record now looks way, way better. But they still have to play Serra and Bellarmine.
20. Crenshaw (Los Angeles) 5-4
Defeated Manual Arts (Los Angeles) 52-0. Cougars now over .500 and their four losses (St. John Bosco, LB Poly, Oaks Christian, Fresno Edison) keep getting better and better as others are now losing.
21. Alemany (Mission Hills) 7-2
Did not play. Will play Crespi (Encino) next week and will need to win to earn CIFSS Pac-5 playoff berth.
22. Notre Dame (Sherman Oaks) 7-3
Defeated Loyola (Los Angeles) 24-14. Earned a CIFSS Pac-5 playoff spot with this win.
23. Mission Hills (San Marcos) 8-1
Defeated Rancho Buena Vista (Vista) 31-14. This was the same team that knocked off San Pasqual from last week so the Grizzlies’ OT loss to San Pasqual isn’t as bad.
24. (NR) Del Oro (Loomis) 7-2
Defeated Nevada Union (Grass Valley) 70-21. The Golden Eagles sent the Miners to 0-9 and next week their state record for consecutive games scoring will probably be broken by Los Alamitos.
25. (NR) Oak Ridge (El Dorado Hills) 8-1
Defeated No. 11 Pleasant Grove (Elk Grove) 28-14. Both the Trojans and Chaminade in the south are similar in that they lost by 35-0 and 36-0 to top four teams but have several big-time wins. This one over Pleasant Grove should really send Oak Ridge toward the top 10.
