#3 De La Salle Outlasts #14 Centennial For California Title

#14 Centennial almost came-up with one of the best comebacks in high school footballl championship game history Saturday against one of the nation's top programs...the De La Salle Spartans.

Centennial foughts back from a 31-7 second quarter deficit to tie the game at 31-31. However, De La Salle, which entered the game ranked #3 by USA Today and still stingy from last year's California Division I championship game loss to Canyon Country Canyon,
was able to regain its composure and win the Division I title with a 37-31 win.

Long Beach Poly Squeezes Past Orange Lutheran

The minimum number of points two teams can score in a football game and win is two.

Long Beach Poly beat defending California Division II champ Orange Lutheran 2-0 Friday night to advance to the CIF Southern Section PAC-5 championship game. Poly used two outstanding goal line stands to reverse the 2006 playoff outcome when Orange Lutheran beat Poly by one-point.

The first goal line stand came in the first half when the Jackrabbits were able to stop O-L on four straight plays inside the 1 yard line. Then with 16-second to go in the game, Orange Lutheran fumbled inside the Poly one-yard line.

Poly's only points came on a safety when Orange Lutheran had a bad snap on a punt.

Poly will play Crespi next week for the PAC-5 championship. Crespi won its semifinal game, beating Servite 13-10 in overtime.

#23 Centennial (CA) Routs Santiago

Santiago thought it would catch nationally ranked Centennial (Corona, CA) off-guard with an opening kickoff on-side kick...itt backfired when they couldn't come-up with the ball.

Centennial (7-1) immediately scored and never looked back in a 69-7 win. Running back Ryan Bass rushed for 214 yards and five scores, while quarterback Matt Scott rushed for 133 yards, ran for a touchdown and tossed two scoring passes.

Centennial had a little extra motivation in this one since last year Santiago protested the Huskies win on the field, saying Centennial used an ineligible coach on the field. The CIF Southern Section ruled in-favor of Santiago, but Centennial won its appeal to Mountain View League principals.

#18 Notre Dame Opens With Win Over Defending State Champs

Notre Dame (Sherman Oaks, CA) used a rock solid defense to show that it's #18 ranking from USA Today could be legit.

The Knights used four interceptions and a fumble recovery to upend defending Division I champ Canyon 17-7 Friday night in the season opener for both teams. ND also limited Canyon to only 48-yards rushing. One of the defensive stars for Notre Dame was LB Hayden Hunter, who returned an interception 70-yards for a score in the 3rd quarter.

Things are much different for Canyon this year. It was the heading coaching debut for Chris Varner, who takes over for Harry Welsh. Also, the Cowboys are trying to find a replacement for running back J.J. DiLuigi, who scored 82 touchdowns in two years.

#8 Mater Dei One of the Best Because of Barkley

Mater Dei (Santa Ana, CA) was ranked #8 in the nation in the USA Today Pre-Season Top 25 High School Football Poll.
