Highlanders hold their ground in WDN Top 10

For the first time in three weeks, the No. 1 team in the Daily News football poll kept that position, with unbeaten La Habra earning a convincing 41-7 victory over St. Paul.
The Highlanders, ranked No. 2 in the CIF-SS Southwest Division poll, held onto the spot after both La Mirada and La Serna suffered losses soon after topping the Daily News poll. But they’ll get their toughest test of the young season Friday when they host Mission Viejo at Cerritos College. The Diablos are ranked No. 2 in the Pac-5 Division.
La Serna rebounded from its loss to Los Osos by whipping Schurr and held the No. 2 position, but La Mirada’s third consecutive defeat sent it from No. 3 to No. 4 this week. Fresh off Christian Lara’s record-setting performance last week, Santa Fe moved fourth to third. But the Chiefs (3-0) will have a big challenge this week when they visit Corona Santiago.
Seven of the 12 area games this week feature an opponent ranked among the top 10 in its playoff division. Norwalk, ranked No. 1 in the Southeast Division, will take on Whittier at Cal High, and Whittier Christian hosts St. Margaret’s, the No. 2 team in the East Valley Division.
