This week begins what might be called the “Second Season” for high school football teams in the West Orange County area as most of them begin league play in pursuit of championships and playoff spots.
The premier matchup is Edison (5-0) taking on Huntington Beach (4-1) at Sheue Field on Friday. The Chargers – ranked fourth in Orange County – would be considered the heavy favorites, but the Oilers (4-1) will be defending their home at Sheue Field, so don’t rule out an upset.
The Garden Grove League is unusually strong this year, with four of sixth teams ending their pre-league schedules with winning records.
Games Thursday and Friday should sort that situation out somewhat. Los Amigos (4-1) will visit Rancho Alamitos (5-0) at Bolsa Stadium on Thursday and on Friday Bolsa Grande (3-2) will visit Santiago (4-1) at Monsoor Stadium on the Garden Grove High campus.
