Scorebook Live California’s week 2 LA City Section football rankings

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

1. Narbonne – 1-1 – @ St. Paul

The Gauchos were stunned against Lone Peak (Utah) 41-21 over the weekend. Linebacker Jordan Banks promised Narbonne wouldn’t lose another game like that all year after the defeat.

Led by running back Trenell Ridgley, St. Paul will be another stiff test for the Gauchos.

2. Garfield – 1-1 – vs. El Rancho

Garfield was throttled on the road against Serra Gardena 41-14. It was 28-0 after the first quarter. The Bulldogs move up because it was a tough week for the City Section. Being blown out by Serra wasn’t as shocking as a few of the other teams’ defeats. Garfield is still an open division team.

3. San Pedro – 2-0 – vs. Taft

The Pirates dominated Eagle Rock on defense and Joshua Ward rushed for two scores in San Pedro’s 21-6 victory last week. The Pirates should be undefeated when they face Narbonne in October.

4. Birmingham – 1-1 – vs. Chaminade

Crespi has clearly taken a step forward this year, but Birmingham losing 55-14 to the Celts was surprising. The Patriots move down two spots.

5. San Fernando – 2-0 – @ Franklin

San Fernando trailed Canyon 23-0 Thursday, but fought back to win 58-43. Franklin has a high powered offense and it will be interesting to see how San Fernando’s defense starts out on Friday.

6. Banning – 0-2 – @ Dominguez

After opening with Cathedral and St. Paul, Banning should get their first win this week. Dominguez hasn’t played anyone, but they are 2-0 and have put up over 100 points in their two wins.

7. Carson – 0-2 – @ Cathedral

For the second consecutive week, things don’t get any easier for the Colts. Carson lost to Edison 55-21 Thursday.

Cathedral put up just 21 points against Banning. How will Carson’s defense perform this week?

8. Fairfax – 2-0 – BYE

Fairfax is 2-0 under new coach Juan Solorio following wins over Dorsey and Sylmar. In two weeks, the Lions play Eagle Rock. That game will have big playoff implications.

9. Crenshaw – 1-1 – BYE

Similarly to Garfield, Crenshaw was annihilated by a Division 1 Southern Section opponent last week. The Cougars were blanked 48-0 by Upland. Crenshaw hosts Garfield in two weeks in another game that has big playoff implications.

10. Venice – 1-1 – BYE

Venice lost to a bad Harvard-Westlake team 35-28. Birmingham beat Harvard-Westlake 34-0 two weeks ago. Yikes.

In the mix: Westchester, Cleveland, Eagle Rock, Franklin, Canoga Park
