Scorebook Live California’s week 5 LA City Section football rankings

After five weeks of play, here are Scorebook Live California’s week five LA City Section football rankings.

1. Narbonne – 4-1 – at Lawndale

It’s been a great week for Narbonne. The Gauchos beat rival Serra on Friday 28-21 and quarterback Jake Garcia committed to USC Monday night.

2. San Pedro – 4-0 – vs. Cleveland

San Pedro comes off of its bye week and hosts Cleveland. Narbonne’s up next.

3. San Fernando – 4-0 – at Reseda

Friday’s game against Reseda is San Fernando’s toughest league game. A win could lead to an undefeated regular season.

4. Banning – 3-2 – at Elsinore

Following Belmont’s forfeit, Banning takes on a good Elsinore team this week.

5. Garfield – 2-2 – vs. Bell

Garfield should once again go undefeated in the Eastern League. Their first opponent is Bell on Friday.

6. Birmingham – 1-4 – bye week

Birmingham will begin league play after their bye week. The Patriots should win out to move to 6-4 come playoff time. The question is where will that put them in the Open Division playoff pecking order?

7. Palisades – 4-1 – bye week

Palisades is off this week before beginning Western League play against Westchester. Pali are league favorites, but Venice and Westchester are also in the hunt.

8. Crenshaw – 1-3 – bye week

Crenshaw will go on its second bye of the season before beginning Coliseum League play. Their win against Reseda is a resume-booster.

9. Carson – 0-5 – vs. Adelanto

If Carson falls to Adelanto this week they’ll most likely miss out on the Open Division for the first time in the Arnold Ale era.

10. Reseda – 3-2 vs. San Fernando

Reseda beat Canoga Park Friday and now the Regents face a tough test against undefeated San Fernando.

In the mix: Venice, Franklin
