2013, Week 4: D-III Battle Shaping Up

Three traditional strongholds among the San Diego Section’s smaller schools are a combined 12-0 and staking their turf in Division III.

Christian, Francis Parker, and The Bishop’s each is 4-0.  Christian, of the Central League, will take on the Coastal League’s The Bishop’s in Week  5 in a possible, midseason playoff preview.

One of three 4-0 teams.

Christian is one of three 4-0 teams.

Christian was ranked second in Southern California by Cal-Hi Sports going into this week’s games, behind Santa Barbara Bishop Diego.

Parker was fifth and The Bishop’s ninth.

The Patriots  have outscored their opponents,  185-16. Their victories are 42-0 over San Luis Obispo Mission Prep, 42-0 over Santana, 66-3 over El Cajon Valley, and 35-13 over Ontario Christian.

Mission Prep (3-1) has rebounded and was seventh in the Cal-Hi Sports rankings before a 24-6 win over Santa Monica St. Monica this week.

Parker, which has outscored its opponents, 166-52, defeated Santana, 52-13, and The Bishop’s edged Coronado, 20-17. The Knights have a 144-65 edge in their scoring.
