1. St. John Bosco (Bellflower) 3-0
Did not play. They Braves have the week off and will play Bishop Gorman of Las Vegas next week in a matchup with national No. 1 implications.

2. De La Salle (Concord) 4-0
The town of Loomis was excited to have the Spartans coming to town to face Del Oro but the standing room only crowd saw the Spartans get three touchdowns from Antoine Custer and have their way against the Golden Eagles 52-0. De La Salle hosts No. 4 Servite next Saturday.
3. Mater Dei (Santa Ana) 3-0
While it wasn’t a win over a State 25 ranked team since Upland lost last week to fall out of the rankings it still was a nice win for the Monarchs as they were victorious 28-14 over the Highlanders.

4. Servite (Anaheim) 3-1
Coach A.J. Gass’ team doubled up Edison of Huntington Beach 42-21 but it was just a 28-21 lead after three quarters before Travis Waller set up a short touchdown run and then tossed a 50-yard touchdown pass. The Friars travel to De La Salle next weekend for a Saturday night special.

5. Folsom 4-0
For the first time since the season opener, Jake Browning got to play in the second half but still that was just one series of the second half in a 61-13 win over Burbank of Sacramento. He also threw for seven more TDs.

6. Long Beach Poly (Long Beach) 3-1
Trailing 28-6 late in the first half, the Jackrabbits tried to have a comeback of the ages against No. 9 Centennial of Corona but it wasn’t to be as they suffered their first loss of the season 42-34. The head coach for USC, Steve Sarkisian, was reportedly among those at the game. We saw him earlier this season at the Gardena Serra-Bellevue (Wash.) game.

7. Alemany (Mission Hills) 4-0
While the Warriors got the win to remain undefeated they were tested early and trailed Dorsey of Los Angeles 15-0 before scoring the game’s final 45 points for a 45-15 win. Brandon Pierce had a 35-yard touchdown catch to give Alemany an 18-15 lead with one second remaining in the first half and then Dominic Davis extended that lead to start the second half’s scoring when he intercepted a pass and returned it 99 yards for six points.

8. Chaminade (West Hills) 4-0
Ed Sias had two touchdown passes early before the running game with Okalani Langi and T.J. Pledger (just a freshman) took over during a 45-20 win over Birmingham of Lake Balboa.

9. Centennial (Corona) 2-2
The Huskies showed why they were ranked in the top 10 despite having more losses than wins before Friday night as they jumped out to a big lead early and held on for a 42-34 win over No. 6 Long Beach Poly. The win was a bit of payback as the Jackrabbits defeated the higher ranked Huskies last season.

10. Helix (La Mesa) 2-1
Despite having an extra week to prepare for Cathedral Catholic of San Diego, the Highlanders scored on their first series but that was it as they suffered their first loss 9-7 final to the Dons. Yes, that’s the same team that Folsom beat 55-10 in its first game.

11. Oceanside 4-0
With the loss by the Highlanders, the Pirates will become an almost unanimous top team in the CIF San Diego Section after their 42-23 win over San Pasqual of Escondido on National Talk Like a Pirate Day.

12. Serra (Gardena) 3-1
Khalil Tate rushed for a touchdown and passed for two scores as the Cavs defeated Narbonne of Harbor City 37-14.

13. St. Bonaventure (Ventura) 2-2
USC-bound Ricky Town passed for 292 yards and two touchdowns but he completed just 21 of his 42 pass attempts and was sacked five times during a 42-28 loss to No. 14 JSerra of San Juan Capistrano.

14. JSerra (San Juan Capistrano) 4-0
It has been an incredible year already for the Lions and they will be moving up the rankings once again after a 42-28 win over St. Bonaventure of Ventura. Edward Vander rushed for 154 yards and scored on a 72-yard run while also catching a 25-yard touchdown pass.

15. Grant (Sacramento) 3-0
Did not play. The Pacers will open up Delta Valley Conference action next week against Franklin of Elk Grove.

16. Valley Christian (San Jose) 2-1
The latest No. 2 team in the S.F. Bay Area behind De La Salle of Concord to fall is the Warriors. They lost Friday to 3-0 Milpitas 31-17.

17. Westlake (Westlake Village) 2-1
Did not play. The Warriors will play Dominguez of Compton next week.

18. Santa Margarita (Rancho SM) 3-1
Unfortunately for the Eagles, their trip to Las Vegas didn’t have them hitting a jackpot as they lost to Bishop Gorman 41-10. The Gaels play the California teams much tougher at home than when they have to travel.

19. Elk Grove 3-0
While the Herd won and remain undefeated, the fact that they defeated Yuba City just 7-0 won’t help them move up much if at all in our rankings next week.

20. Mission Hills (San Marcos) 3-1
Dechaun Holiday had two touchdown catches and also intercepted a pass and returned it for a score just in the first quarter as the Grizzlies defeated Poway 49-0. The Mission Hills-Oceanside game on Oct. 10 just got a lot bigger, too.

21. Edison (Fresno) 4-0
With their 21-20 win over Clovis North of Fresno, the Tigers will remain the No. 1 team in the CIF Central Section. DeAndre Lockhart’s touchdown tied the game and Bill Xiong’s extra point turned out to be the game-winning point.

22. Bishop Amat (La Puente) 2-2
The Lancers’ State 25 ranking will only be lasting a week as they will now fall out after losing at Chino Hills 45-28. Santa Margarita’s lopsided loss also will hurt the cause.

23. Bakersfield 2-1
With a performance that had Zach Ewing from The Bakersfield Californian tweeting “Drillers dominate in all three phases” they defeated Crenshaw of Los Angeles 48-12.

24. Oak Ridge (El Dorado Hills) 3-1
It was a bad week to be a newly ranked team as the Trojans’ stay in State 25 will be a short one as well after losing 26-14 to Reed of Sparks, Nev. Oak Ridge’s earlier win over Vacaville, however, gained in strength with Vacaville’s win this week over Granite Bay.

25. Lutheran (Orange) 3-1
USC head coach Steve Sarkisian’s name kept popping up on twitter tonight and this was one of the games he was reportedly at, likely to see Keisean Lucier-South, as the Lancers defeated Cabrillo of Long Beach 52-8.
