6. (7) Oaks Christian, 6-0
The Lions dismantled an overmatched Bakersfield Christian team, 83-0, and led 63-0 at the half. As usual, star running back Zach Charbonnet, Josh Calvert and Tripp Mitchell led the offense and the defense was lights out as well.
7. (6) Orange Lutheran, 3-2
The Lancers lost a heartbreaker to Mission Viejo, 37-35, when a last-second, 30-yard field goal went wide left. OLu will open up league play Friday against Santa Margarita.
8. (10) Upland, 4-1
The Scots got back on the winning track with a 49-0 shutout win over El Diamante. Isaiah Banks took the opening kickoff back for a touchdown, Cameron Davis and Tyevin Ford rushed for 1st half touchdowns and the defense dominated throughout.
In a tough defensive battle, the Coyotes knocked off a solid Valencia squad 21-20 in overtime. The defense and physicality have really improved for Calabasas this season and Jaden Casey, Mycah Pittman and Julien Stokes made enough plays to get the win.
10. (11) Norco, 4-1
The Cougars had a bye and will take on Riverside King next weekend.
The next 10:
11. (13) Bishop Amat, 4-1
12. (14) Corona Del Mar, 4-1
13. (9) Cajon, 4-1
14. (8) Westlake, 5-1 (vs. Calabasas, 7p, Prep Zone)

19. (16) Lawndale, 3-2
20. (20) Long Beach Poly, 3-2
*Mater Dei’s opening win over Bishop Amat was forfeited due to playing with an in-eligible player. Until someone beats them on the field, they’ll stay at No. 1 in our rankings.
