Unbeaten La Habra will get its toughest test of the season Friday when it hosts Mission Viejo at Cerritos College.
Both teams sport 3-0 records, and both are ranked No. 2 in their CIF-SS playoff divisions, Mission Viejo in the Pac-5, La Habra in the Southwest.
Other teams facing their stiffest competition this week will be unbeaten Santa Fe and Whittier Christian. Seven of this weekend’s games feature at least one team ranked in its division.
