Santa Fe Christian @ La Jolla Country Day: The battle of the year in the Coastal League– The Eagles and Torreys each with one loss on the season will compete for the league crown in week ten. The Eagles will try and pound the ball with their triple-option attack, while the Torreys will feature Braxton Burmeister in the air and on the ground.
SCORE PREDICTION: Santa Fe Christian – 35 La Jolla Country Day – 31
#4 La Costa Canyon @ Oceanside: The Pirates haven’t lost four games in a season in at least twelve years. They are now in danger of losing four games in a row and dropping them under .500 on the season. The Mavericks have found a solid offense this season to go with their always reliable defense. The Mavs will look to end a four game losing streak against the Pirates.
SCORE PREDICTION: La Costa Canyon – 21 Oceanside – 13
#5 Westview @ Poway: The Titans will have an opportunity to take down a top five team and get in position to earn a share of the league title. The Wolverines must shake off their first loss of the season, to La Costa Canyon, and get back on track for the remaining two league road games.
SCORE PREDICTION: Westview – 23 Poway – 16
#2 Helix @ #10 Grossmont: The Foothillers consistently put points on the board, but how they’ll try and stop the Highlanders high-powered offensive attack in another story. Grossmont must control the clock and avoid turnovers to give themselves a chance.
SCORE PREDICTION: Helix – 42 Foothillers – 21
LAST WEEK: 5-0
SEASON RECORD: 26-9
