For the first time in its history, JSerra has cracked the Orange County Top 10 in the weekly poll of 10 media members. The Lions are coming off a 49-31 victory over Huntington Beach and debut at No. 9, sandwiched between Orange Lutheran and Tesoro. 

Less newsworthy, Mission Viejo knocked Mater Dei out of No. 1 by virtue of its epic 28-25 overtime victory over Ramsey (NJ) Don Bosco Tech. What a game!

10. Tesoro (2-1, 13) Titans lost to Chino Hills, 30-17.


1. Mater Dei (3-0) Modest start against Carson gives pause, but Monarchs remain the team to beat.

8. Trabuco Hills (3-0) Mustangs get a solid victory over Fountain Valley, which is much improved.
