Oceanside held sway for the fifth consecutive week in the renamed U-T San Diego poll of sportswriters and sportscasters. The San Diego newspaper recently acquired the North County Times, which created the poll.
John Carroll’s Oceanside Pirates routed Vista 44-0 in a game that was played in less than two hours because of a running clock being used in the second half after Oceanside left the field leading 42-0 at intermission.
Vista was a San Diego Section Division I playoff finalist last season.
Carroll pulled most of his regulars in the third quarter and played reserves the rest of way. Vista coach Danny Williams also provided playing time to reserves in the second half.
Oceanside earned 25 first-place votes and La Costa Canyon, ranked second, had two first-place votes. In the only changes from Week 6, Grossmont moved from 10th to ninth and Eastlake moved up to 10th.
