No changes this week. None. The eight active teams emerged victorious, while Dorsey and Bonita were idle. There should be some movement as league play intensifies.
1. (1) Lakewood (5-0)
We'll find out how the Lancers respond to their biggest roadblock of the season. Rivalry games work in mysterious ways. Last week: Beat Compton, 37-0. Next: vs. Long Beach Poly at Veterans Stadium, Friday.
2. (2) Serra (5-0)
Even with highly touted George Farmer banged up last week, the well-rounded Cavaliers blew past a strong opponent. Last week: Beat Narbonne, 48-22. Next: at St. Francis, Oct. 16.
3. (3) Bishop Amat (5-0)
Junior Rio Ruiz threw for over 200 yards in the first half against Cathedral, then put it in cruise control. Amat is a serious Pac-5 threat. Last week: Beat L.A. Cathedral, 53-6. Next: vs. Venice, Friday.
4. (4) Crenshaw (3-2)
We might be looking at a 5-0 team had the Cougars benefited from a break here or there in Georgia or at Norco. Still a dangerous squad. Last week: Beat Culver City, 50-7. Next: West Adams Prep, Oct. 15.
5. (5) Dorsey (4-0)
The Dons play an exciting brand of football, but might be susceptible to a letdown if teams contain quarterback Joseph Gray. Last week: Bye. Next: San Diego Mira Mesa, Friday.
6. (6) Long Beach Poly (3-2)
Star defensive end Corey Waller was thinking about Lakewood three weeks ago. The Jackrabbits want what the Lancers have. Last week: Beat Long Beach Jordan, 41-8. Next: vs. Lakewood at Veterans Stadium, Friday.
7. (7) Compton Dominguez (4-1)
Though it might not be all that glamorous, Dominguez has four legitimate wins. The Dons have victories of three and four points -- and have not scored more than 28 in a game. Last week: Beat Sherman Oaks Notre Dame, 21-17. Next: at Warren, Oct. 15.
8. (8) West Covina (4-1)
The No. 1 team in the Southeast Division, according to the most recent CIF-Southern Section poll, can run the ball with the best of them. Last week: Beat Walnut, 41-24. Next: at Rowland, Friday.
9. (9) St. John Bosco (4-1)
An earlier home loss to Lakewood might have been exactly what the Braves needed to get things rolling. Last week: Beat La Habra, 35-17. Next: at Mater Dei, Oct. 15.
10. (10) Bonita (4-0)
The Bearcats are averaging over 30 points per game and must be licking their chops with the Brahmas, who allowed 41 a week ago, up next. Last week: Bye. Next: at Diamond Bar, Friday.
Dropped out: None.
