3. (3) Centennial, Corona, 4-0
The Huskies started off slow against Narbonne, the top team in the City Section, but once the passing game got rolling, it was over. Carter Freedland threw three touchdowns, wide out Reggie Retzlaff caught a pair of scores and the defense was lights out led by defensive end Drake Jackson.
