#1 Torrey Pines kept up with their recent trend by recording their 3rd shutout in four weeks. The Falcons scored touchdowns on their first five possessions of the game leading to a 35-0 victory over visiting San Pasqual.
#2 La Costa Canyon got their Avocado League schedule started by hosting El Camino. The Mavericks were never tested and cruised to a 41-21 victory to remain unbeaten.
#3 Madison made the trip north to take on Palos Verdes. The Warhawks got a rushing touchdown from Gabe Battaglia to go along with touchdown catches from Jaden Dir and Keontae Springs in the 21-10 road win.
#4 Cathedral Catholic welcomed in #8 Helix for their annual battle and it lived up to the hype. A back and forth game found the Scotties leading 14-7 at halftime. A long touchdown run in the fourth quarter gave Helix a 21-20 lead. The Dons responded with 10 unanswered points in the last 8:32 to give them a 30-21 win.
#5 San Marcos had their BYE week before they jump into Avocado League play.
#6 St. Augustine has their defense off to an incredible start this season. The Saints are off to a 4-0 start on the season and have recorded shutouts in three of them, featuring victories over Bonita Vista, Santa Fe Christian, and Otay Ranch. The offense hasn’t slowed down either, averaging almost 37 points per game. They’ll face the stiffest test this week as they travel to face a Helix team that won’t be intimidated.
#7 Eastlake has bounced back from getting shutout in week one when they hosted top-ranked Torrey Pines. They’ve won three straight most recently taking down Grossmont 34-0. Their schedule sets up nicely as they head towards the season finale against Otay Ranch.
#9 Lincoln faced a Sweetwater team in week three that just isn’t on the same level as the Hornets. Lincoln was coming off back-to-back weeks in which they took down San Diego and Morse by single digits. Their opening season shutout over Bloomington is now in the books as a forfeit loss. They’ll host Dorsey of Los Angeles this Friday.
#10 Mission Hills hosted Carlsbad, while trying to get their first win on the season. A slow game found the Grizzlies leading 17-7 with just under three minutes to play. The Lancers then found Asa Turner for a touchdown catch to slice the lead to three. They then recovered the onside kick and drove back down again, this time finding Noah Vella for a 29 yard touchdown reception with 1:07 to play. Mission Hills completed a couple long passes and finished off the game winning drive with a Joey Armentrout QB keeper that gave the Grizzlies the lead for good in one of the best fourth quarters you’ll see.
