2013, Week 7: Top 10 Static, but Curious

There was no change from 1-10 in the UT-San Diego’s Top 10 as several teams enjoyed a Week 6 bye.

San Diego Section teams begin the turn for home and the postseason with league play beginning this week.

Sometimes it pays to take that busman’s holiday.

No. 2 San Pasqual picked up seven votes despite its bye and No. 5 Cathedral lost 10 votes despite a 42-13 victory over Morse.

Strange.

Other teams also profited from the hiatus. Oceanside’s sabbatical resulted in 12 more votes for the Pirates and El Capitan gained 13.

However, Ramona took the week off and was rewarded with seven less votes and idle Carlsbad emerged with 14 fewer and Helix with 1 less.

Making sense was No. 3 Eastlake, up 7 votes after a 52-14 rout of Sweetwater,  and No. 7 Madison gaining 15 points after a 41-6 victory over Mira Mesa.

The ranks of “others receiving votes” continued to thin, shrinking from nine to seven. Most prominent was heretofore undefeated Christian.  The Patriots were eighty-sixed after a 24-21 loss to Mission Bay.
