There’s no room at the top in the UT-San Diego weekly poll. Some points adjustments were noted, but the same eight teams remained in place from the previous week.
While there were no changes, Cathedral took one of Oceanside’s first-place votes. Helix had swiped two first-place votes two weeks ago.
The Dons gained as result of eight straight wins and a 57-22 rout of St. Augustine, while Oceanside, still undefeated, had to grind out a 28-14 victory over Carlsbad.
Christian inched up from 10th to ninth and Sweetwater was admitted to the group at 10th.
The Red Devils of coach Brian Hay, who have won 16 games in a row since 2013, actually had one less point, 18, than last week, when they were among the “others receiving votes”.
The regular seaason ends in two weeks followed by four weeks of playoffs and possible Southern California playoff berths.
According to the San Diego Section’s intricate ratings system it appears that Cathedral and Oceanside could be on a collision course to meet in the Open Division semifinals.
