Argos, Saxons post key victories

RESULTS OF THURSDAY NIGHT prep football games.

Garden Grove and Loara positioned themselves for possible league title games after posting football wins on Thursday night.

The Argonauts (8-1) defeated Marina by the score of 43-6 in a Big 4 game at Bill Boswell Field on the Westminster High campus. That put GG’s league record at 2-0.  Assuming that Segerstrom (7-1 overall and 1-0 in league so far) defeats winless Westminster on Friday, the Argos and Jaguars will meet for the championship next Friday at Monsoor Stadium.

Loara (7-2 overall) improved to 4-0 in the Garden Grove League by defeating Santiago (now 5-4, 2-2) 28-14. If Rancho Alamitos (now 5-3, 3-0) defeats La Quinta (3-5, 1-2) on Friday, that sets up a title matchup between the Saxons and Vaqueros for the GGL crown.

Also on Thursday, Pacifica lost 26-7 to Valencia, dropping the Mariners (4-5, 2-2) into a tie with Tustin for third place in the Empire League. The blue-black-and-white will close out the regular season next week against Kennedy (2-6, 0-4).

In other area games:

• Cypress 20, Tustin 7.

• Katella 37, Savanna 0.

• Villa Park 63, El Modena 0.
