Oceanside, unapproachable in the first half and approachable in the second half of a 47-28 win over St. Augustine, picked up additional support in this week’s UT-San Diego prep football poll.
The Pirates, who led 28-0 at halftime against the Saints, will need all hands on deck for all four quarters this week when they play host to Southern Section power Gardena Serra.
Oceanside out-polled Mission Hills, 23 first-place votes to 7, and scored 302 points to the Grizzlies’ 281. Biggest improvement went to Cathedral, which jumped from sixth to third after a 38-6 victory over Utah power Sandy Jordan.
