It may seem a little odd that the second week of the local 2022 high school season is called Week One, but that’s because some teams got a jump on the season last week with what’s called Week Zero.

Now, all of the teams presenting the communities of Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Stanton and Western will have been in action by this week. The schedule appears below, but please note that the dates, locations, time, opponents and other details are subject to change without notice. All games are scheduled for a 7 p.m. start.

There are a lot of interesting games this Week One but one of them relates to a mythical city championship

On Friday, in the season opener for both teams, La Quinta will visit Westminster for the “City of Westminster” title. Last fall, the Lions defeated the Aztecs 48-7.

Here are the matchups:


  • Newport Harbor (1-0) at Marina (0-0) at Bill Boswell Field at Westminster High.
  • Loara (0-2) at Estancia (0-0)
  • Huntington Beach (1-0) vs. Summit High of Fontana (1-0) at home.


  • Garden Grove (0-0) at Artesia (0-0)
  • Western (1-0) at St. Margaret (0-1) of San Juan Capistrano
  • Bolsa Grande (1-0) at Bishop Montgomery (1-0) of Torrance
  • Santiago (0-0) at Santa Ana Valley (1-0)
  • Magnolia (1-0) at University (1-0)
  • La Quinta (0-0) at Westminster (0-0)
  • Los Amigos (0-0) at Ocean View (0-1)
  • Rancho Alamitos (0-0) at La Sierra (1-0) of Riverside)
