It was all about the routs

MOST of Friday night’s high school football games were one-sided

Friday night’s area high school football games were – with one exception – as one-sided as Al Pacino against  Kim Kardashian in an acting contest.

Of seven games, five were decided by more than 20 points, and the sixth by 19.

When the games were over, two locals – Rancho Alamitos and Westminster – remained unbeaten at 5-0 as the pre-league schedules close out for most teams in The Tribune’s coverage area.

Still winless are Marina and Magnolia, each 0-5.

La Quinta, on the other hand, posted its first victory of the 2022 season, defeating  Century 35-3 to improve to 1-4.

The closest game of the evening was at Bolsa Stadium, where Rancho fell behind 12-0 to the Ocean View Seahawks but rallied for a 19-18 victory with the winning touchdown scored on a pass play with two minutes to play in the game.

After five weeks, some interesting league contests are shaping up. For example, Los Amigos (4-1) will take on Rancho (5-0) on Friday at Bolsa Stadium in a game which could go a long way toward deciding the Garden Grove League title.

Also that night, Santiago (4-1) will host a rising power in Bolsa Grande (3-2) at Monsoor Stadium.

Edison (5-0) and Huntington Beach (4-1) were idle this week, but will open Sunset League play next Friday at Sheue Field.
