LASALLE

Last Week: I picked up one on Keith, besting him by correctly picking Muir over Burbank and Gabrielino over Mountain View. Keith got one back, picking Alhambra’s first win, with a victory over Keppel.
This week: The marquee matchup is at La Salle High School, where the Lancers can take a major step toward their second Del Rey League title. You have to go with La Salle, after being mainly a solid running team earlier has found it’s passing legs in league play, especially the past two weeks. Other intriguing matchups are St. Francis hosting Harvard-Westlake and Muir traveling to Arcadia, which is for first in the Pacific. I like the Golden Knights and Mustangs, who should win easy.
