After five weeks of play, here are Scorebook Live California’s week five LA City Section football rankings.
1. Narbonne – 4-1 – at Lawndale
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
