1. (1) De La Salle (Concord) 11-0
Defeated Granada (Livermore) 46-0. The Spartans scored 27 points in the second quarter to lead 46-0 at halftime. They will play Deer Valley of Antioch (11-1) next in CIF North Coast Section D1 semis.
2. (2) St. John Bosco (Bellflower) 12-0
Defeated Tesoro (Rancho Santa Margarita) 55-7. Josh Rosen connected with Jaleel Wadood for a 64-yard touchdown for the game’s first score on the way to a 42-0 lead at halftime.
3. (3) Folsom 12-0
Defeated Franklin (Elk Grove) 49-16. Jake Browning had six touchdown passes to set the state single-season touchdown record with 68 on the year and counting.
4. (4) Serra (Gardena) 12-0
Defeated Buena (Ventura) 40-6. Despite playing on the road, the Cavs jumped out to a 38-0 halftime lead.
5. (5) Mission Viejo 11-1
Lost to No. 9 Mater Dei (Santa Ana) 21-14. The Monarchs intercepted three passes in the first half as the Diablos fell behind 21-7 at halftime and were unable to come from behind for the win.
6. (6) Long Beach Poly (Long Beach) 11-1
Defeated No. 25 St. Bonaventure (Ventura) 44-8. The Jackrabbits led 23-0 at halftime 44-0 after three quarters. Last week’s 18-16 win over Orange Lutheran seems to have been a wake-up call.
7. (8) Alemany (Mission Hills) 10-2
Defeated No. 24 Servite (Anaheim) 21-19. Will face No. 2 St. John Bosco (Bellflower) next week. The Warriors stopped a late two-point conversion to preserve the win after blowing 21-0 lead.
8. (9) Centennial (Corona) 10-2
Defeated Chaparral (Temecula) 49-14. The Huskies play Upland next in CIFSS Inland Division semifinals.
9. (13) Mater Dei (Santa Ana) 10-2
Defeated No. 5 Mission Viejo 21-14. Held Ian Fieber to just three completions in the first half and knocked off previously unbeaten foe. MD vs. LB Poly next week will be rematch of 2012 CIF Pac-5 final.
10. (10) Chaminade (West Hills) 10-2
Defeated Ventura 36-3. Like Serra, cruising into the CIFSS Western Division semis.
11. (11) Oak Ridge (El Dorado Hills) 11-1
Defeated Granite Bay 28-17. Last year’s D1 state bowl champs are done in the Sac-Joaquin Division I bracket. Oak Ridge gets some payback since it was the team Granite Bay beat in last year’s section final.
12. (17) Serra (San Mateo) 9-2
Defeated Pioneer (San Jose) 59-7 on Saturday. The Padres made it 4-for-4 for the WCAL in CCS Open Division quarterfinals.
13. (12) Eastlake (Chula Vista) 10-2
Lost to No. 17 Oceanside 33-30. The Titans led 30-7 before allowing the game’s final 26 points.
14. (14) Mission Hills (San Marcos) 11-1
Defeated Helix (La Mesa) 24-21. Advances to the first CIF San Diego Section Open Division championship game against Oceanside.
15. (18) Vista Murrieta (Murrieta) 11-1
Defeated Charter Oak (Covina) 52-7. The Broncos will face Norco next week. If we were running a TMZ style show, this would be the game we’d go to with former Norco and current Vista Murrieta QB Coltin Gerhart going against his former team.
16. (16) Del Oro (Loomis) 10-2
Defeated Whitney (Rocklin) 35-11. The Golden Eagles will get another surprising upstart team in the SJS D2 semis when they will host Yuba City.
17. (20) Oceanside 10-2
Defeated No. 13 Eastlake (Chula Vista) 33-30. Remember the score of the Mission Hills loss from earlier in the season? It was 30-7, the same score the Pirates were behind at halftime on Friday. Oceanside fan Thomas Gutierrez wrote, “It was the greatest comeback I’ve ever seen.”
18. (19) Bakersfield 9-2
Defeated Clovis West (Fresno) 44-21. The Drillers came off of their first-round bye in the CIF Central Section D1 playoffs and rolled over the Eagles.
19. (NR) Narbonne (Harbor City) 10-2
Defeated Birmingham (Lake Balboa) 21-13. This was a close call for the CIF L.A. City Section’s No. 1 seed. It was 14-13 until a late TD created some breathing room.
20. (NR) Elk Grove 11-1
Defeated Burbank (Sacramento) 18-12. The Thundering Herd defense put together a late stand to hold on. Elk Grove will take on surprising Rio Linda in next week’s SJS D2 semifinals.
21. (23) La Habra 10-2
Lost to Newport Harbor (Newport Beach) 49-48. Quest Truxton catches game-tying touchdown in the final minute and the successful extra point wins it. Cole Norris passed for 486 yards and six touchdowns while Truxton had 16 catches for 248 yards and four scores for Newport Harbor. This result not only made us 2-for-2 on upset alerts this week (we called Christian Brothers of Sacramento beating American Canyon in the other one) but also will surely get Corona del Mar into next week’s Top 25 since the unbeaten Sea Kings have a win over Newport Harbor.
22. (24) Marin Catholic (Kentfield) 11-0
Defeated Eureka 49-14 on Saturday. The Wildcats are now in the NCS D3 semifinals.
23. (7) Archbishop Mitty (San Jose) 10-1
Defeated Palma (Salinas) 28-0. Not sure that Palma should be in the Open Division, but still a solid win for team coming off a lackluster outing in a loss to Serra.
24. (NR) Servite (Anaheim) 6-6
Lost to No. 7 Alemany (Mission Hills) 21-19. Tate Beachley scores with 1:03 remaining but the Friars’ two-point conversion was stopped just shy of the goal line. Maybe next year this young team will make a lot of the close plays it didn’t this season.
25. (NR) St. Bonaventure (Ventura) 8-4
Lost to No. 6 Long Beach Poly 44-8. After the Seraphs beat Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks, didn’t see a blowout like that coming. But maybe also Poly is that good.
