San Pasqual this week became the third North County team to occupy the number one position in the weekly UT-San Diego football poll.
The Eagles surprised Mission Hills, 13-10, in overtime, knocking out the Grizzlies, who had climbed to No. 1 in Week 7 after kayoing Oceanside, which had resided in first since the preseason poll.
I voted for the Cathedral, as did two others. Eastlake also received some support, meaning three teams received first-place votes for the first time this year.
San Pasqual takes on Rancho Buena Vista this week. The Longhorns are 5-2 but so far haven’t impressed the voting panel, earning only two points among the “others” this week.
Hoover, 5-1, before a 13-9 loss to Serra, might have had a shot at a low Top 10 position but the Cardinals lost a touchdown because of an “inadvertant whistle”.
