In the next-to-last week of the regular high school football season, some league races were settled but some were not.

Previously unbeaten Westminster was stunned Friday night, losing to Laguna Beach 21-14, and giving the Breakers no worse than a tie for the Pac-4 title.

Western accomplished something similar with its 48-7 win over Santa Ana Valley, clinching no worse than an Orange League title tie.

In the Garden Grove League, the race now comes down to two teams. Los Amigos defeated Santiago 26-12. That leaves Rancho Alamitos – victor over Loara by 31-14 – and the Lobos both with 3-1 league records.  If each wins next week, they’ll share the crown.

Edison continued its dominance over long-time Sunset League rival Fountain Valley by defeating the Barons 50-0. In the Empire League, Kennedy defeated Pacifica 35-14.

Saturday’s key game is for the Big 4 League title. Garden Grove (7-1 overall, 1-0 in league) will travel to Anaheim to take on Katella (3-5, 1-0). The winner gets no worse than a tie for the title.

In the Orange League, Magnolia lost 34-20 to Anaheim.  In the Orange Coast League, Orange defeated Costa Mesa 55-6 to set up a game next Friday with Santa Ana for the league title. Both teams are 7-2 overall and 5-0 in OCL play.
