Breakdown: Sage Hill will look to keep momentum going following last week's 38-7 win over Fairmont Prep in its home opener ... The win broke a 13-game losing streak for the Lightning, dating to 2011 ... Sage led that game 31-0 at halftime and got two touchdown passes from McCord and two rushing scores from Roth ... Capistrano Valley Christian, which finished second in the San Joaquin League a year ago, is ranked No. 8 in the CIF Southern Section Northeast Division ... The Eagles have outscored its first two opponents, Maranatha Christian and Rock Academy, by a combined total of 110-3 ... These two teams also met in the third game last year, and the result was a 30-8 victory for the Eagles, though Sage was without its quarterback McCord (broken arm) at the time ... Sage Hill is 5-3 all-time against Capistrano Valley Christian.
