2014 Week 3: Helix, Oceanside Gain Separation

Helix had 16 first-place votes and Oceanside the other three as the two big shots from opposite points of the County are beginning to separate from the rest of  the Top 10 in the UT-San Diego poll.

Helix gained only one point to 187 but Oceanside gained 41 to 174, while No. 3 Mission Hills dropped 35 points to 123.  St. Augustine was static with 120 points at No. 4.

A revived Cathedral picked up 28 points for a total of 97 and is No. 5.

Big game this week has St. Augustine at Los Angeles Loyola, which is installing lights, running bus shuttles from Pershing Square, setting up temporary bleachers for 4,000 persons, charging $15 for available parking, and celebrating its first home game since 1949.

Don’t make the trip unless you have a ticket. None will be sold at the gate.

Coincidentally, St. Augustine was the visiting team for a Southland Catholic League  game with Loyola on Oct. 22, 1949.

Whether that game was played at Loyola or at one of the Cubs’ other “home” playing sites is not known,  but it remains as  one of the final games  in the last 65 years on the near-downtown-L.A. campus located at Venice Blvd. and Normandie Avenue.

Other intersectionals send Mar Vista to Santa  Cruz Harbor, Eastlake to Long Beach Veterans’ Stadium to play Los Alamitos, and Oceanside to Temecula Chaparral.
