NEW SoCal Top 25

Southern California high school football scores

As we head into the final week of the 2016 high school football season in Southern California, there’s still shuffling in the High School Football America Southern California Top 25.

San Clemente moves-up three spots to #7 this week after beating former #7 Edison Saturday night for the right to play for the CIF Division 1-A state championship next week in Sacramento.  The Tritons, #8 Edison and #9 La Mirada are separated by only a few thousandths of a percent point.  San Clemente has its win over Edison, which beat La Mirada last week.  Back in mid-December, San Clemente lost to La Mirada 43-14.

The only other changes this week are at the bottom of the rankings, where Sierra Canyon, playing for the CIF Division 2-A state title over the weekend, move-up two spots to #23, which drops Oaks Christian and Cathedral one spot each to #24 and #25 respectively.
