1. ST. JOHN BOSCO (BELLFLOWER) 2-0
After their season opening win in Hawaii two weeks ago, the Braves had last week off before moving to 2-0 on Friday night with a 48-3 win over Norwalk. Josh Rosen passed for 339 yards and five touchdowns in their home opener.
2. DE LA SALLE (CONCORD) 2-0
Unlike last season that saw the Spartans’ move to 2-0 with a narrow 21-14 win over Serra of San Mateo, the game Friday night was far from the nail-biting variety as the Spartans defeated the Padres 41-13. According to tweets from Stephanie Hammon of the Contra Costa Times, the Spartans out-gained the Padres 376-75 in the first half and opened up a 35-7 halftime lead.
3. MATER DEI (SANTA ANA) 2-0
Jumping out to a 28-0 lead after one quarter, the Monarchs moved to 2-0 with a 63-0 win over Villa Park. They will have next week off before facing Upland in two weeks.
4. SERVITE (ANAHEIM) 1-1
It seemed like most of the top teams in the state showed no signs of rust as they jumped out to big leads early on. The Friars did their part as they led 31-10 at halftime and defeated Corona 45-17 for their first win of the season, which had to please their student cheering section “The Asylum,” who showed up in bunches despite it being a road game.
5. FOLSOM 2-0
Jake Browning set the career passing touchdowns mark early on as he passed for six touchdowns and rushed for a score before watching the entire second half from the sidelines as the Bulldogs defeated No. 17 Clovis North of Fresno 49-13. Cole Thompson was on the receiving end of the record-tying and record-breaking touchdown passes. Browning now has 150 career TD passes and seems on track for 200. Folsom’s status also gained some strength on Saturday when Cathedral Catholic of San Diego topped Oaks Christian of Westlake Village 28-21 one week after the Bulldogs beat the Dons 55-10.
6. LONG BEACH POLY (LONG BEACH) 2-0
Twice trailing in the first half, the Jackrabbits got a touchdown pass and run from Josh Love to open up a double-digit lead as they would get the win over Narbonne of Harbor City by a 34-21 final score.
7. SERRA (GARDENA) 1-1
The Cavs were be the final game of the night on Saturday at the U-T Honor Bowl against national powerhouse Bellevue of Washington and lost 31-14. Bellevue did win its 55th straight game, but Serra has a lot of work to do to be comparable to last year’s 13-1 squad.
8. ALEMANY (MISSION HILLS) 2-0
Facing Eastside Catholic of Sammamish, Wash., the Warriors trailed 14-7 after one quarter but shutout the Crusaders over the final three quarters to get the 31-14 win. Dominic Davis rushed for the game’s final three touchdowns.
9. CHAMINADE (WEST HILLS) 2-0
In a game that caught our eye on twitter with it being a one point game into the third quarter, the Eagles went on a 30-8 run to end the game with a 44-21 win over Hart of Newhall.
10. BAKERSFIELD 1-1
In the highest ranked upset of the night the Drillers led Edison of Fresno 14-0 but ended up losing to the Tigers for the first time ever as their 52-yard field goal attempt on the final play of the game was blocked. Bill Xiong hit the game-winning 32-yard field goal with 19 seconds left.
11. PITTSBURG 1-1
Tied after the third quarter, fourth quarter and the first overtime, the Pirates were unable to score in the second overtime and lost to San Ramon Valley of Danville 27-20. Look for SRV (2-0) to jump up pretty far in next week’s rankings.
12. CENTENNIAL (CORONA) 1-1
We were admittedly fretting about where to put the Huskies had they lost to Orange Lutheran on Saturday at the Honor Bowl, but they won 52-49 in a typical shootout.
13. VISTA MURRIETA (MURRIETA) 1-0
With both Bakersfield and Pittsburg losing, the Broncos have some room to move up the rankings next week but they might not after escaping with a 14-13 win over Downey to open the season. Tito Feliciano rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown and Kyle Williams scored on a 57-yard run in the final minute of the first half to give them the lead that would hold up.
14. WESTLAKE (WESTLAKE VILLAGE) 2-0
Perhaps looking ahead somewhat to their matchup against No. 6 Long Beach Poly next week, the Warriors got a touchdown from Chase Jasmin with 15 seconds remaining for a 34-27 win in Arizona against Mesa Red Mountain. On the other hand, Red Mountain is a top team in Arizona.
15. HELIX (LA MESA) 2-0
In the opening game of the Honor Bowl at Oceanside, Helix defeated Del Oro of Loomis 34-10. RECAP.
16. OCEANSIDE 2-0
The Pirates looked like an elite team and also worthy of San Diego’s No. 1 ranking with their 24-7 triumph over Mission Viejo. RECAP.
17. CLOVIS NORTH (FRESNO) 1-1
Even if they had USC-bound Jacob Daniel in the lineup, it wasn’t likely going to be enough for the Broncos to slow down Folsom in their 49-13 road loss.
18. ST. BONAVENTURE (VENTURA) 1-1
After a four-point loss to No. 15 Helix of La Mesa in their season opener, the Seraphs got rid of the goose egg in the win column on Friday night as they shutout Cabrillo of Long Beach 42-0..
19. SERRA (SAN MATEO) 0-1
Last season, the Padres lost by just seven points to De La Salle, but they couldn’t keep it that close this year in their season opener as they lost to the Spartans 41-13.
20. UPLAND 2-0
While it wasn’t quite the 71 points they put up in their season opening win, the Highlanders did score 43 against Redondo Union of Redondo Beach while their defense recorded their second shutout of the season.
21. MISSION HILLS (SAN MARCOS) 1-1
Trailing Torrey Pines of San Diego 10-0 after the first quarter, the Grizzlies scored all three of their touchdowns in the second quarter to take a 21-17 lead at halftime, which also ended up as the final score.
22. JSERRA (SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO) 2-0
Making sure their first ever State 25 state ranking lasts more than one week, the Lions picked up an impressive 45-21 win against a Chino Hills squad that opened the season with a win against of Hart of Newhall.
23. GRANT (SACRAMENTO) 2-0
Mike Green scored three touchdowns as the Pacers moved to 2-0 with a 36-13 win over Central of Fresno. The Pacers’ defense opened the season with six scoreless quarters before the Grizzlies scored 13 points in the third quarter.
24. VALLEY CHRISTIAN (SAN JOSE) 1-0
Kirk Johnson rushed for three touchdowns and Collin Johnson caught a touchdown pass as the Warriors defeated Pioneer of San Jose 55-0 to open their 2014 season.
25. ELK GROVE 1-0
Did not play. The Herd have the week off and will play their home opener next Friday night against 1-1 Lincoln of Stockton.
