No. 4 Laguna Hills (8-0, 3-0 vs. Costa Mesa (5-3, 2-1)


Fans of the forward pass should keep driving until they reach Santa Ana Stadium, where Mater Dei and San Clemente are playing tonight. Laguna Hills' Michael Jones runs behind a powerful offensive line. Cory Pardoe is a skilled quarterback who often uses Jones as a decoy on option plays. Laguna Hills could be caught looking ahead to a Week 10 showdown with Aliso Viejo. Costa Mesa, which has won two in row, already has stopped one talented running team this season, when the Mustangs shut out Estancia, 17-0.
