New Southern California Top 25

Southern California high school football scores

Who’s #1 in Southern California? The question will be answered Saturday night when top-ranked Mater Dei and #2 St. John Bosco collide at Angel Stadium for the CIF Southern Section Division 1 championship.  Bosco, our preseason #1 in our national rankings, returns to its fourth straight championship game after beating Corona Centennial 49-47 in the section semifinals on Friday.  Last month, Mater Dei came-from-behind to beat the Braves 26-21 at Cerritos College.

St. John Bosco’s win Friday night, drops Corona Centennial to #3 in the latest High School Football America Southern California Top 25, followed by Narbonne, which climbs one spot to #4.  Rancho Cucamonga rounds-out the Top 5 at #5.

The CIF Southern Section Division 2 and 3 championships will feature all-Top 25 match-ups as #8 Murrieta Valley will host #16 San Clemente for the Division 2 title and #7 La Mirada will host #10 Edison for the Division 3 title.
