Southern California’s Trinity League is considered one of the toughest high school football leagues in the national each and every year. 2018 is no different with four of the six teams entering league play Friday night ranked in the High School Football America 100 national rankings.

No. 1 Mater Dei picked up its fourth shutout of the season Friday night with a 35-0 win over Servite. USC verbal commit Bryce Young was 17-of-21 passing for 238 yards with two touchdowns in the victory. Young also ran for a score.

No. 4 St. John Bosco had all it could handle against No. 74 JSerra in a battle of unbeatens.

JSerra held a 21-14 lead late in the first half, but that’s when George Holani scored his second of three rushing touchdowns to tie the game at 21-all at the half.

Holani also caught a touchdown pass in the 35-28 victory. He rushed for 160 yards.

And, for the second week in a row, No. 29 Orange Lutheran had its game come to a field goal attempt on the final play. After losing to No. 16 Mission Viejo last week on a missed FG, Friday night, the Lancers beat Santa Margarita 39-37 when Logan Loya booted a 27-yard field goal.

Next week, OLu will battle Bosco.
