A look at the top high school football games on Friday night:

Westlake Village Westlake (4-0) at Moorpark (3-0), 7 p.m.

Two fast, athletic receivers will be featured on opposite sides. There’s Jason Heller of Westlake. He’s only 5 feet 8 but defensive backs are having trouble preventing him from making big plays. There’s Drake London of Moorpark. He’s the USC-bound, two-sport standout whose size and jumping ability create unique matchup problems. Starting Westlake QB Marco Siderman is sidelined with an ankle injury, so backup Patrick Roberg will get the start. The pick: Westlake.

Harbor City Narbonne (1-3) at Gardena Serra (2-1), 7 p.m.

Narbonne’s defense has been very good; its offense, not so much. The advantage is with Serra quarterback Doug Brumfield, who has passed for 1,051 yards and eight touchdowns. He must avoid Narbonne’s imposing defensive line. The pick: Serra.
