Week 10 High Five

Game of the Week

No. 5 Torrey Pines (8-0, 3-0 Palomar) at Poway (6-2, 2-0) Friday 7 p.m.

With a nonleague game scheduled next week, Torrey Pines has the chance to capture the Palomar League title a week early with a win over fellow league unbeaten Poway. The Falcons have done it with defense all season, but last week it was their offense that got them out of an 18-point hole in a win at Ramona. Torrey Pines has played consistent, physical football from the beginning of the season and certainly belong in the discussion for section No. 1. With six straight wins, Poway has put an 0-2 start behind them, using speed and execution to trip up their opponents. The Titans still have two league games left, but a win would allow them to control their own destiny headed into the final week of the season. These teams have met each of the past four regular seasons, splitting their contests.

Best of the Rest

Castle Park (6-2, 1-0 Metro Pacific) at Olympian (7-1, 1-0) Friday 7 p.m.

In the four-team Metro Pacific League, the top three teams have a combined record of 18-6 with nonleague losses coming to the likes Torrey Pines, Eastlake and Grossmont. Castle Park and Olympian meet with the chance to get the inside track on this underrated league’s title. With both teams relying heavily on the ground game, the team that controls the line of scrimmage should win the game. After losing to Castle Park in their first two varsity seasons, Olympian beat the Trojans for the first time last season by a 39-point margin.

Grossmont (7-1, 2-1 Grossmont Hills) at No. 7 Steele Canyon (7-1, 3-0) Friday 7 p.m.

With No. 1 Helix looming, Steele Canyon begins a tough two-game stretch on Friday night when they host Grossmont. The Cougars have a balanced offensive attack led by running back Jake Wragg and quarterback Brad Boehmke that is averaging 37 points per game. On defense, Steele Canyon is holding its opponents to 11 points per game, including a shutout of West Hills last week. A game back of both Steele Canyon and Helix, Grossmont could shake up the standings with a win. The Foothillers bounced back from their first loss of the season with a 21-14 win over Granite Hills last week. Steele Canyon has won the last three meetings between these teams.

El Capitan (4-4, 3-0 Grossmont Valley) at No. 9 Mount Miguel (7-1, 2-0) Friday 7 p.m.

Headed into league play, it didn’t look like Mount Miguel would have much competition in the Grossmont Valley League and so far the Matadors have made it look easy. Mount Miguel has won their first two league games by a combined score of 104-10. After a 1-4 start, El Capitan has hit their stride with a perfect start to league play. Can the Vaqueros challenge Mount Miguel? The winner of this game will have the inside track to a league title.

Bishop’s (8-0, 2-0 Coastal) vs Horizon (5-2, 2-0 Coastal) Saturday 7 p.m. at Del Norte High

The best small school league in the section will be on display Saturday night, as its co-leaders square off. Bishop’s is one of only five unbeaten teams in the section and hasn’t slowed down in league play, beating Francis Parker and Santa Fe Christian by an average of 16 points. The Knights boast a strong running game behind brothers Alec and Austin Fisher and rely on a core of two-way players. Horizon is coming off their biggest win of the season, a 20-0 win over Francis Parker last Friday. The Panthers’ offense averages 34 points a game led by quarterback Markel Byrd (1,538 yards, 16 TDs). This one could be a shootout.

In the Red Zone

La Jolla (2-6, 2-1 Western) at Mission Bay (1-7, 1-2) Friday 2:30 p.m.
