Mater Dei 20, Edison 14
A year ago, Huntington Beach Edison running back Joshua Gage was stopped one yard short of the goal line on the final play in a six-point loss to Santa Ana Mater Dei.

Friday, before a capacity crowd at Orange Coast College, the Chargers were still a yard short when it counted.

Needing five yards for a first down at the 14-yard line to keep a drive alive in the last minute, quarterback Brian Shrock was knocked out of bounds by Michael Hardwick at the 15, and Edison, ranked third in the Southland, fell to No. 6 Mater Dei, 20-14.

Both defenses were as good as advertised, but two third-quarter plays -- the only two passes completed by Mater Dei quarterback Kyle Woody in the second half -- were the difference.

Woody, who had averaged 28 yards per completion this season, connected on touchdowns of 65 and 76 yards to Robert Dubrish only 52 seconds apart. Coupled with first-half field goals of 29 and 30 yards by Adam Sutter, Mater Dei (3-1) had enough points to win again.

"It was a little shaky in the first half," said Woody, who completed three of eight passes for 143 yards and an interception. "On that second one, [Dubrish] made a great catch. I said, 'What How can he be that wide open?'."

Edison (4-1) had not given up a long play all season, but no one was covering Dubrish while protecting a 14-12 lead with 8:51 left in the third quarter.

"That was our emphasis the whole week," said frustrated Edison Coach Dave White. "You can't give a good team two big plays."

Mater Dei dominated early, holding the ball more than 18 of the 24 minutes of the first half. But twice at the 12-yard line the Monarchs kicked field goals, and at the 27, they botched a field-goal try.

Edison, which also missed a field-goal attempt from the six-yard line, converted a fumble into a 39-yard scoring drive, with Shrock passing 23 yards to Joshua Gage for a 7-6 lead.

From its own 27 with 1:05 left in the half, Edison's Abel Cardona triggered a rally with a 40-yard run, and Shrock hit Thomas Marcin for 28 yards with 17 seconds left for a 14-6 lead.

Then came the Monarchs' third-quarter turnaround, followed by their defensive plays in the fourth--Gregory Moses recovered a fumble at the Monarch 23 and Hardwick stopped Shrock.

"Our defense is as good as anybody's, including theirs," Mater Dei Coach Bruce Rollinson said. "And then we hit the bombs."

Mission Viejo 41, Long Beach Poly 14
Mission Viejo took on the team expected to provide it with its biggest challenge on Friday night, but Long Beach Poly hardly caused the Diablos to blink on their way to a runaway nonleague victory at Long Beach Cabrillo.

Chane Moline rushed for 200 yards in 20 carries, quarterback Mark Sanchez had three touchdown passes and Mission Viejo's defense forced four turnovers and had four sacks.

The Diablos (4-0), ranked No. 1 in the state by Cal-High Sports, did not punt until less than two minutes remained in the game.

Nick Reed recovered a fumble on the Mission Viejo 41-yard line to end Poly's first drive and sacked Theo Scott to put a halt to the second.

Mission Viejo followed its second defensive stop by marching 85 yards in nine plays to take a 7-0 lead early in the second quarter. Moline's 57-yard run was the big play of the drive, putting the ball at the Jackrabbit eight. The Diablos scored two plays later on a five-yard touchdown pass from Sanchez to Brett Alvarez.

Moline scored his second touchdown on a two-yard run with 1:54 left in the first half. He set up his touchdown with runs of 28 and six yards. , finishing the first half with 120 yards in 11 carries.

The Jackrabbits (3-1), ranked No. 2 in the state, committed two turnovers in the first half, but those didn't hurt as much as their six penalties for 50 yards.

A late hit along the sideline moved Mission Viejo past midfield on its second touchdown drive and a holding call nullified a 34-yard reception by tight end Raymond Sholes late in the first half.

Poly failed to capitalize on Mission Viejo's only turnover, a botched snap from center that was picked up by William Alo and returned 38 yards to the Diablo 17 with 14 seconds left in the half. But the Jackrabbits threw an incomplete pass, then missed a 33-yard field goal attempt as time expired.

In addition to forcing two turnovers, Mission Viejo's defense held the Jackrabbits to 86 total yards in the first half, including only 24 yards rushing.

"To hold Poly to 14 points," said Marty Mikkelsen, Mission Viejo's defensive coordinator, "if somebody had told me that before we had started, I would have taken it."

Poly tried its luck with an on-side kick to open the second half, but Mission Viejo recovered it, then marched 49 yards in seven plays, taking a 21-0 lead on an eight-yard touchdown reception by tight end Konrad Reuland. A pass-interference penalty on Alvarez was also a key to the drive.

The Jackrabbits scored on their next possession, moving the ball 60 yards in eight plays and scoring on a 24-yard pass from Scott to Terrence Austin with three minutes left in the third quarter. Scott, who completed 16 of 25 passes for 164 yards, completed all five of his passes on the drive.

The Diablos quickly answered as Sanchez found Sean Fitzgerald in the end zone with a 15-yard pass on fourth and goal, giving Mission Viejo a 28-7 lead early in the fourth quarter.

"Our offense played great in the second half," said Sanchez, who was nine of 19 for 139 yards with no interceptions. "And our defense played great in the second half."

Cruz Parson, who had been rotating at quarterback with Scott, came in for three plays in the second quarter before injuring his right knee. He did not return.

DeSean Jackson had seven catches for 82 yards and one touchdown, an eight-yarder to make it 28-14 with 7:24 left in the game.

Valencia 37, St. John Bosco 6
With their high-powered offense struggling for much of the game and star quarterback Michael Herrick having an off-night, the Vikings, ranked No. 9 by The Times-turned to their defense to throttle the Braves at St. John Bosco.

Despite failing to score over 40 points for the first time this season, Valencia (4-0) took the lead on its first offensive possession and never trailed. Led by linebackers Torrey O' Brien, Anthony DeFilippo, and Gary Cox, the Vikings' quick-blitzing defense limited St. John Bosco to 63 total yards while forcing five turnovers and a safety.

"They've been doing some real good things all year long," Valencia coach Brian Stiman said. "Hopefully, we'll continue it. I'm very proud of their effort tonight."

Herrick, who had 960 yards and 12 touchdown passes in his first three games, shook off a slow start to complete 16 of 36 tries for 233 yards. He was intercepted three times but did throw three scoring passes.

Sophomore running back Shane Vereen had a big game with 105 yards and had scoring runs of 10 and four yards in the second half as the Vikings broke open a 7-3 halftime lead with 16 third quarter points.

"We were put in some difficult situations in the first half with some penalties and errors on our part," Stiman said. "We weren't exactly sharp. The second half, we played pretty well."

The Braves (2-2) sacked Herrick three times late in the first half and Domingo Castellanos got the quarterback's third interception early in the third quarter but St. John Bosco only managed a 42-yard field goal by Andrew Aguila (cq).

Aguila, a six-foot junior, kicked a school record 54-yarder in the second quarter for the Brave's other points.

Birmingham 33, Newhall Hart 27
