Top-ranked La Habra is unbeaten no more

And then there were none.

Top-ranked La Habra fell to 3-1 with a 46-21 loss to Mission Viejo, ranked No. 6 in the state by, and No. 3 Santa Fe (3-1) lost to Corona Santiago 56-7. Whittier Christian (3-1) hosted St. Margaret’s at Whittier College and was beaten 44-14.
The night’s most exciting game had to be Montebello at El Rancho, where the hosts drove 80 yards in the final minute to edge the Oilers, 30-29. Whittier learned just how strong Norwalk is in a 45-0 loss and Pioneer’s high-scoring offense was at it again in a 45-42 victory over Mountain View.
