1. Mater Dei (Santa Ana) 9-0
Defeated Servite (Anaheim) 58-16. The magical season for the Monarchs continued after last week’s win over St. John Bosco with a win over the rival Friars at Angels Stadium.
2. Centennial (Corona) 8-1
Defeated Norco 49-17. A league title was on the line, but the Huskies made quick work of the Cougars. They scored three times on their first four plays, including an 80-yard bomb on the first play from QB Tanner McKee to Justin Fisher.
3. St. John Bosco (Bellflower) 7-2
Defeated JSerra (San Juan Capistrano) 47-19 on Thursday. Short week after loss to Mater Dei was no problem for the Braves.
4. Mission Viejo 9-0
Did not play. Bye. The Diablos are taking on San Clemente (alma mater of USC redshirt freshman QB phenom Sam Darnold) in their regular season final.
5. Rancho Cucamonga 9-0
Defeated Damien (La Verne) 44-24. Even if they finish 10-0 next week, the odds of the Cougars having to play a very tough opening game in the CIFSS D1 playoffs are very high.
6. Narbonne (Harbor City) 9-0
Defeated San Pedro 41-3. The Gauchos remain on track to get top seed for CIF L.A. City Section D1 playoffs.
7. Cathedral Catholic (San Diego) 9-0
Defeated St. Augustine (San Diego) 35-0. QB Tate Haynes and the Dons put it together in all facets in this impressive win. It wasn’t long ago when the Saints were No. 1 in the San Diego Section media poll and we didn’t budge in having Cathedral Catholic on top.
8. De La Salle (Concord) 8-1
Defeated James Logan (Union City) 76-0. Logan, normally one of the better teams in the CIF North Coast Section, has been struggling all season.
9. Serra (Gardena) 6-3
Did not play. Bye. Head coach Scott Altenberg’s squad will finish up its regular season next week vs. Alemany of Mission Hills.
10. Murrieta Valley (Murrieta) 7-2
Defeated Great Oak (Temecula) 42-14. A long kickoff return TD by Like Palma helped break it over the Nighthawks against team that began season with three straight wins.
11. Monte Vista (Danville) 9-0
Defeated San Ramon Valley (Danville) 32-20. Yes, that’s the same SRV team that lost by just 28-27 to De La Salle so this sets up a showdown next week between the Mustangs and Spartans in Concord. Seems like great chance for a NorCal team outside of the CIF Central Section to finally beat DLS.
12. Calabasas 9-0
Defeated Thousand Oaks 47-14. Tristan Gebbia threw for five TDs for the Coyotes and now had 107 for his career.
13. Pittsburg 8-1
LOST to No. 14 Freedom (Oakley) 41-38. Head coach Vic Galli’s squad took a 38-35 lead with 3:29 left on a 10-yard run by Montaz Thompson but couldn’t hold on. We’ll have a writeup and photos posted on Saturday.
Defeated No. 13 Pittsburg 41-38. Jonathan Pierce threw a 35-yard TD pass to Giles Jackson with 1:50 left for the winning score. In a sense, it was a do-or-die matchup for one of the four spots in new CIF North Coast Section Open Division playoffs.
15. Oaks Christian (Westlake Village) 7-2
Defeated St. Bonaventure (Ventura) 63-28. The Lions remain in good shape to land a top seed in the CIFSS Division II playoffs.
16. Chaminade (West Hills) 7-2
LOST to Bishop Amat (La Puente) 41-40 in OT. The Eagles went for two after their overtime TD and were stopped. The Lancers then scored and kicked a PAT to win.
17. St. Mary’s (Stockton) 8-1
Defeated Lodi 57-0. It was a fun, stress-free Homecoming night for the Rams.
18. Helix (La Mesa) 7-2
Defeated Grossmont (La Mesa) 45-21. The Highlanders won the Musket Game for the 26th straight year with key play coming on a pick six by Evan Perkins.
19. Folsom 8-1
Defeated Rocklin 47-14. Coming off their bye week, the Bulldogs had no issues. They led 40-0 at halftime and will now play Oak Ridge (El Dorado Hills) next week for Sierra Foothill League title.
20. Clayton Valley (Concord) 8-1
Defeated Las Lomas (Walnut Creek) 63-14. As expected, the Ugly Eagles extended their winning streak to seven games by defeating the winless Knights. They still have to beat Campolindo (Moraga) next week to wrap up league title.
21. Valley Christian (San Jose) 8-1
LOST to St. Francis (Mountain View) 13-10 OT. The defense did not allow a touchdown but a blocked punt returned for a score helped turn the momentum. Miles Kendrick had the game’s lone offensive touchdown as he scrambled 48 yards for a score but he did not complete a pass on the night.
22. Long Beach Poly (Long Beach) 6-3
LOST to IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) 34-0. Facing the No. 2 team in the nation, the Jackrabbits trailed just 3-0 with 10 seconds left before halftime but gave up a touchdown before halftime and struggled in the second half.
23. La Mirada 7-2
Did not play. Bye. Head coach Mike Moschetti’s crew meets up next week with Mayfair (Lakewood) in regular season finale.
24. Cathedral (Los Angeles) 9-0
Defeated St. Francis (La Canada) 24-17. It was a battle of two undefeated teams and it was the Phantoms that ended the night still without a loss as Bryce Young connected with Jamire Calvin for a five-yard game-winning touchdown.
25. Heritage (Menifee) 9-0
Defeated Temescal Canyon (Lake Elsinore) 47-7. It will be a battle of two teams with 9-0 records next week when the Patriots host Paloma Valley of Menifee.
