There’s no question that Oaks Christian behind junior quarterback and USC-commit Matt Corral has one of the top offenses in Southern California.  The real question is, how many points must the Lions score each week?

Friday night, Oaks Christian (3-2) put up 62 points against Murrieta Valley.  The only problem was that Murrieta Valley put-up 70 points to win the game.  It was the second straight week that Oaks Christian’s defense has given-up more than 60 points and the third time this year that the Lions have allowed 55 points or more.

OC, ranked #6 in the latest High School Football America SoCal Top 25, has now allowed 250 points in five games, while only putting-up 228.  The Lions wins have come against Chaminade (66-55), Alemany (63-62 in OT) and Paraclete (21-14).  Aside from Friday night’s 70-62 loss, OC’s other loss was to nationally-ranked St. Joseph’s Prep (Pennsylvania) 49-17.
