Generational talent, great coaching and senior leadership are major reasons why Servite (Anaheim, Calif.) has jumped into the top 10 national rankings. But a deeper dive into their youth success may be at the heart of how the Friars have perennial national juggernauts and Trinity League rivals Mater Dei (Santa Ana) and St. John Bosco (Bellflower) concerned that its stranglehold on Southern California football may currently be in jeopardy.

Leading by 23 points at halftime, it felt certain the Chino Hills High football team was headed towards an easy victory over a tough opponent. And after Damien rallied with 29 unanswered points, the Huskies put together a 75-yard touchdown drive and the defense survived two Damien incomplete passes in and near the endzone in the final seconds to take a 37-36 win Thursday night, securing a 5-5 overall record and heavily increasing their chances to earn a spot in the CIF-Southern Section playoffs.

High School Football Preview: Lakewood vs. Compton

There will be a lot on the line tonight at Compton College where Compton is hosting Lakewood in a Moore League clash. Kickoff is scheduled for 7. Lakewood (3-5, 3-1) is currently third place in the league, and Compton (2-5, 1-3) is fifth. The Lancers can clinch that third and final automatic CIF postseason spot with a win tonight, but a Compton win could set up a possible three-way tie between Lakewood, Compton and Jordan considering that the Lancers finish the regular season next week against first-place Long Beach Poly while Compton takes on last-place Cabrillo. If those three teams tie for third place with three wins an envelope draw would decide which of the them received the league’s final automatic playoff berth.
