It’s the last week of the season, which means the last poll will be next week. But Rivalry Week shook a lot of teams up so let’s see where they stand.
1. Crenshaw (9-0) – How do you top one of the most impressive defensive performances of the year? An afternoon walkthrough against Jefferson.
2. Serra (9-0) – Congrats to Army All-American Robert Woods as he and his mates take on unbeaten Cathedral at home Friday.
3. Carson (7-2) – Survived offensive explosion with Narbonne, now a defensive struggle with San Pedro is the only thing standing in the way of their second league title in three years.
4. Culver City (8-1) – 301 total yards and six TD’s (four rushing) for All-Sentinel Team candidate Marquel Carter last week as the Centaurs look to wrap up a fourth consecutive league title Friday.
5. Venice (8-1) – The City’s sleeper of the season wraps up their league against Hamilton. And don’t be surprised if they got a Top-4 seed in the City playoffs thanks to Narbonne and Taft falling.
6. Narbonne (5-4) – They gave Carson a fair fight but they fell short. Hosting Banning will give their seniors something to play for.
7. San Pedro (7-2) – Won’t be easy beating Carson on the road but they’ll create a 3-way logjam for the Marine League title if they do.
8. Dorsey (7-2) – Bright spot after their loss to Crenshaw: They’ll be hungry heading into Locke Friday morning and could see a rematch with the Cougars in the postseason.
9. Taft (5-4) – Did I say last week’s game wasn’t a rivalry? The Toreadors must have slept and forgotten but Birmingham thought so. They need a win Friday to enter the playoffs on a positive note.
10. Centennial (6-3) – The Apaches were 1-9 a year ago. Now they have a chance to win their first league in sometime when they take on Lawndale. Great under-the-radar story
