Servite 35, Loyola 32
Any doubts about the strength of Anaheim Servite's offense were put to rest Saturday night. The defense may face some questions, however.
The Friars rolled up 402 yards of offense in defeating Los Angeles Loyola in a league opener at Glendale High. The last time the Cubs allowed more points was in a 38-6 loss to Antelope Valley in 1995.
But the Friars (6-0, 1-0) also gave up 20 points in the last 11 minutes, turning a one-side game into a nailbiter that wasn't settled until Sonny Kaesbauer intercepted a pass from Loyola quarterback Scott Deke with 1 minute 59 seconds remaining in the game.
Servite, which did not score an offensive touchdown in a 7-0 victory over Huntington Beach Edison last week, got key production from sophomore running back Ken Ashley, who rushed for 147 yards in 32 carries and two touchdowns.
Ashley has been slowed by a broken left thumb suffered in the third week. Wearing a cast on his left hand, he fumbled three times but only lost one. Ashley scored on a 19-yard touchdown run midway through the second quarter to give the Frairs a 14-6 lead, then added a three-yard run with 1 minute 35 seconds left in the first half to put them ahead, 21-12.
Loyola (3-3, 0-1) then turned the ball over on its first two possessions of the second half and Servite took advantage of both, scoring on a 33-yard run by quarterback Mike Lawrence and a two-yard run by Mike Hernishin to move ahead, 35-12, seven minutes into the second half.
But the Friars tuned the ball over twice of their own and then was stopped on fourth down at midfield with 4:05 left and the Cubs capitalized on a 22-yard touchdown pass to Hunter Armour with 3:26 remaining to cut the lead to 35-32.

Mira Costa 27, Peninsula 3
Knowing Rolling Hills Estates Peninsula would concentrate on stopping its leading rusher, Tyler Pringle, Manhattan Beach Mira Costa used him primarily as a decoy. The strategy worked to perfection as the Mustangs spoiled the Panthers' homecoming with a victory Friday afternoon in a Bay League opener.
Mira Costa (6-0, 1-0), ranked No. 25 by The Times, limited Peninsula to 88 total yards. It marked the fourth time this season the Mustangs, who lost 15 starters to graduation after losing in the Southern Section Division III final, have held an opponent to seven points or less.
"[Our] team likes to play really physical and they don't just arm-tackle you, they hit you," said Kyle Darr, who single-handedly outrushed the entire Peninsula team with 81 yards in 11 carries.
Nick Woodward carried seven times for 59 yards for Mira Costa and Pringle finished with 39 yards and two touchdowns in 10 carries. Joe Houston kicked field goals of 25 and 31 yards for the Mustangs, who took their first step toward a fourth consecutive league title.
Jordan Munde rushed for 55 yards in 23 carries to lead Peninsula (2-2-2, 0-1), which took a 3-0 lead on Jordan Kay's 31-yard field goal in the second quarter.

Palmdale 17, Antelope Valley 14
Senior running back Adrian Jenkins rushed for 124 yards and a touchdown in 22 carries and Palmdale won the Golden League opener at Antelope Valley.
Jenkins scored on a four-yard run to give Palmdale (5-1, 1-0) the decisive points with 1:04 left in the third quarter. The touchdown came two plays after a 40-yard punt by teammate Benjamin Royce that was fumbled at the eight-yard line by Antelope Valley's Andre Crenshaw and gave the Falcons a 17-7 lead.
Antelope Valley (4-2, 0-1), which had just one first down and 14 total yards in the first half, trailed, 10-0, at halftime, but had pulled within 10-6 with a seven-play drive in which senior running back Aaron Wilson accounted for 58 yards, including 48 on the ground. Wilson, who ended the drive with a four-yard touchdown run, finished with 81 yards in 14 carries.
The Antelopes closed within the final margin with 10:12 to play on a 41-yard halfback-option pass from Wilson to Eric Wickliffe and a two-point conversion pass from Mychal Bogan to Nathaniel Thomas. The play capped a seven-play, 75 yard drive.
Antelope Valley moved to the Palmdale 30-yard line with 2:40 to play after a last 14-play drive that lasted more than five minutes but ended with two incomplete passes by sophomore quarterback Rodney Trimm, who was six of 15 passing for 77 yards with one interception.
Palmdale, which defeated Antelope Valley, 20-15, in the league finale last season, when both teams advanced to the Southern Section Division III semifinals, built a 10-0 halftime lead with two lengthy drives, the first capped by a one-yard run by Dominic Blood midway through the first quarter and the second ending with a 32-yard field goal by Royce.The Falcons' defense keyed on Antelope Valley running back Kreig Peters all night, and the senior finished with 40 yards in 16 carries.

Riverside North 59, Riverside Poly 14
Going against former coach Steve Hagerty, who is now at rival Poly, third-ranked North got four touchdowns from receiver Damon Morton - all in the first quarter - and rolled to an easy victory in its Ivy League opener.
Morton caught passes from his brother, Dion, of 39, 43 and 56 yards and also made two terrific switchbacks on a 76-yard punt return with 34 seconds left in the first quarter for a 28-0 lead. Morton now has 11 touchdowns. He finished with four receptions for 158 yards.
"My brother did a good job of putting the ball in a really good spot," Damon Morton said. "All I had to do was catch it, which was the easy part."
Dion Morton completed five of six passes for 176 yards and North (6-0, 1-0) rolled up 565 yards of offense. Poly (2-2-2, 0-1) netted only 81 yards.
Josh Barnett scored twice for North on runs of 39 and 59 yards. He carried 13 times for 159 yards and now has 13 touchdowns. Second-team back Johnnie Green scored on a 79-yard run and Dion Morton scored on a 36-yarder. Morton rushed six times for 81 yards, Green twice for 88.
North, which had reached the end zone on its first play from scrimmage in four of its first five games - although one was nullified by penalty - scored on its second play, the 39-yard pass to Morton.
Poly scored when Richard Welker recovered quarterback Anthony Andre's fumble in the end zone midway in the second quarter and with 3:21 left on Todd Cage's five-yard run against the second unit.

Foothill 31, Newport Harbor 24
The Knights rallied from a 24-10 deficit on two touchdowns from running back Mike Alba in the game's final minutes.
A 90-yard kickoff return by Spencer Link put Newport Harbor (5-1, 0-1) ahead by 14 points with 31 seconds left in the third quarter. But on the next play from scrimmage, Foothill wide receiver Yoko Hamamura took a short pass over the middle, broke a tackle and turned it into a 79-yard touchdown.
Two personal fouls against Newport Harbor aided Foothill (5-1, 1-0) in its 12-play, 80-yard march that tied the score on a seven-yard touchdown reception by Alba with 2:21 left in the game.
Blitzing defensive back Brandon Baricuatro of Foothill forced Newport Harbor quarterback Kasey Peters to fumble on the Sailors' next possession at their 30-yard line. On the next play, Alba raced around left end for the go-ahead score with 1:10 left.
Mater Dei 24, St. John Bosco 17
Bruce Rollinson, Santa Ana Mater Dei's football coach, walked onto the field before Friday night's Serra League opener and joked with Bellflower St. John Bosco Coach Kiki Mendoza. "Let's trade game plans," he quipped.
It looked as if Mater Dei's defense knew exactly where St. John Bosco tailback Terrence King was rushing, limiting him to six yards in 15 carries in the Monarchs' 24-17 victory at St. John Bosco.
Mater Dei (3-3, 1-0), ranked No. 22 in the Southland by The Times, recorded 11 tackles for losses in winning its third consecutive game. King was dropped seven times for losses. Credit inside linebackers Greg Moses and Ray Andong for disrupting the Braves' offense.
Running back Justin Guzman of Mater Dei broke a 17-17 tie with 2:06 left in the third quarter when he scored on a three-yard run. Guzman set up the touchdown with a 33-yard punt return and finished with 81 yards rushing in 14 carries.
St. John Bosco (5-1, 0-1), ranked No. 10 by The Times and the defending Serra League champion, failed to score in the second half after driving to the Mater Dei 23, 27 and 22. Quarterback Patrick Cowan completed only seven of 21 passes for 102 yards. He was sacked three consecutive times at the end of the game inside his own 10-yard line, twice by Notre Dame-bound tackle Brandon Nicolas.
Pagemun Parvin's 27-yard field goal on the final play of the second quarter gave Mater Dei a 17-14 halftime lead. St. John Bosco was fortunate to be so close after picking up only 22 yards rushing and being outgained, 232 yards to 83.
Mater Dei opened a 14-0 lead in the first half thanks to Jason Forcier's 21-yard touchdown run and a six-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Brown.
But two sophomores ignited a Brave comeback. Brandon Johnson, a cornerback, returned an interception 60 yards for a touchdown. Receiver Jamar Brown caught a 47-yard pass from Cowan to clear the way for King's five-yard touchdown run.
Forcier completed 12 of 18 passes for 124 yards and rushed for 60 yards in 10 carries.

Canyon Country Canyon 52, Valencia 45
After lopsided victories over five opponents who didn't inspire the jitters, the only apparent weakness in Canyon Country Canyon's game was its credibility.
"No one knows for sure," Valencia Coach Brian Stiman was saying before kickoff, "but [Canyon] might be one of the top five teams in the Southern Section."
Canyon (6-0, 1-0), ranked No. 14 in the Southland but having played only one team with a winning record, added a trophy with the Foothill League victory over No. 23 Valencia (4-2, 0-1) before about 4,000 at College of the Canyons.
Canyon's offense, which outscored five previous opponents, 248-69, was similarly proficient against the Vikings, who were ranked No. 3 in Division II, directly behind the Cowboys.
Canyon's Nathan Longshore, who last week committed to California, completed 23 of 41 passes for 359 yards with two interceptions and five touchdowns and rushed 10 times for 45 yards. Sean Coen caught a school-record 13 passes for 190 yards and touchdowns of 14, 26 and 46 yards, and Tim Nailleux caught seven passes for 122 yards and touchdowns of 23 and 29.
Yet, for all of Longshore's passing, it was Louis Montano's second scoring run, a 25-yarder, with 2:37 left that provided the difference.
Valencia sophomore Mike Herrick threw four interceptions, two of them in desperation in the waning moments. Herrick completed 32 of 42 passes for 376 yards and four touchowns.

Randall Reynoso kicked a 47-yard field goal with 18 seconds to play as the host Swordsmen scored 11 points in the last 1:14 en route to a victory in a Mission League opener.
Notre Dame (4-2), ranked No. 11, took its first lead of the game, 14-13, on a 57-yard scoring run by Cary Harris with 10:28 left and extended the lead to 21-13 on a 30-yard touchdown reception by Jimmy Welker from Garrett Green with 5:17 left.
But the Swordsmen (4-2) drove 80 yards on the ensuing possession as Dwight Tardy scored on a four-yard run and Miguel Rios connected with Phil Molina for the two-point conversion to tie the score, 21-21. Notre Dame's Greg Gallucci then muffed the ensuing kickoff and St. Paul recovered to set up the game-winning field goal.
Harris rushed 13 times for 105 yards and scored twice, including a three-yard scoring run early in the second quarter to tie the score, 7-7.
Notre Dame, which has won nine of the last 10 Mission League titles and is the defending Division IV champion, was out-gained 342-263 yards.

Quarterback Jimmy Barnes connected with Bryan Gordon for an eight-yard touchdown pass midway through the fourth quarter as the top-ranked Griffins rallied from a seven-point deficit for a Sunset League victory at Huntington Beach High.
No. 24 Edison (3-3, 0-1) led, 21-14, and drove into Los Alamitos territory early in the fourth quarter before Griffin linebacker Nathan Quinn intercepted a Brian Shrock pass near midfield and returned it for the game-tying touchdown with 11 minutes to play.
Los Alamitos (6-0, 1-0) got the ball back at the Edison eight-yard line after a snap sailed over the head of the Charger punter and Edison was assessed an illegal kicking penalty. The Griffins took the lead two plays later.
After the team exchanged punts, Edison's final drive ended when Los Alamitos defensive back Chad Dunn intercepted a pass and returned it to the Charger 31.
Barnes completed nine of 19 passes for 190 yards and three touchdowns, including an 88-yard scoring strike to Gordon that tied the score, 7-7, early in the second quarter. Gordon had four catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns.
Edison receiver Matt White caught eight passes for 81 yards and a touchdown and set up another score with a first-quarter interception.
