Long Beach Poly Squeezes Past Orange Lutheran

The minimum number of points two teams can score in a football game and win is two.

Long Beach Poly beat defending California Division II champ Orange Lutheran 2-0 Friday night to advance to the CIF Southern Section PAC-5 championship game. Poly used two outstanding goal line stands to reverse the 2006 playoff outcome when Orange Lutheran beat Poly by one-point.

The first goal line stand came in the first half when the Jackrabbits were able to stop O-L on four straight plays inside the 1 yard line. Then with 16-second to go in the game, Orange Lutheran fumbled inside the Poly one-yard line.

Poly's only points came on a safety when Orange Lutheran had a bad snap on a punt.

Poly will play Crespi next week for the PAC-5 championship. Crespi won its semifinal game, beating Servite 13-10 in overtime.

#5 St. Xavier Tries to Close-Out Great Season With Division 1 Ohio Title

St. Xavier (Cincinnati) hopes to finish off one of the best undefeated seasons in the country Saturday when it plays Mentor for the Division I high school football championship.

So far St. X has run the table against one of the toughest schedules in the country. The Bombers have beaten several top-notch programs such DeMatha (Hyattsville, MD), Trinity (#1 6A team in KY at game time) and backyard rivals Colerain and Elder.

The Bombers have been ranked as high as #2 by USA Today, and enter the game #5 in the latest USA Today Super 25.

Both teams have chips on their shoulders. St. Xavier wasn't able to make it back to the 2006 title game to defend its 2005 championship, while Mentor is back trying to erase the memory of last year's 36-35 double overtime loss to Colerain in the title tilt.

Two players to watch in this one...Mentor quarterback Bart Tanksi, who was recently named Ohio's Mr. Football and St. X running back Darius Ashley, who despite missing several games has rushed for over 1,300 yards.

Don Bosco is also ranked #17 by the USA Today.

Saturday's game will serve as the rubber match of the last three year with Don Bosco (11-0) winning last year's title 41-0, while St. Peter's (11-0) beat the Ironmen 22-15 in 2005. It will be DBP's seventh appearance in the final in the last eight year with titles coming in 2002, 2003 and 2006.

"Small Time" High School Football

The crush of big money, December high school football is upon us...BUT before settling in to enjoy the championship games being played in NFL stadiums next month, I'd like to introduce you to a blog that I just LOVE!!

It's called Small Town High School Football and is manned by a very good photographer named Morgan Tyree in Wyoming. I emailed Morgan several times last year, but thought that a story about his site would get lost because of a lack of visitors to my site.

The good news...The High School Football Huddle is now a success!! We've had over 60,000 hits this month and that means more eyes for Morgan's site and his great photography. Some of the pics are at the top of this story.

Morgan focuses on the true essence of high school football. Here's how he describes his site...

"The Small Town High School Football Project focuses on the small town football games and programs in the bypassed communities of Wyoming and Montana. Despite the popularity of American Football in the form of its highly paid professionals, luxurious stadiums and college football’s bowl game lineup, this body of work illustrates that there are still places in this country where football’s innocence is preserved and celebrated in a grass roots setting. This project commenced in 1997."

Morgan pics have been exhibited around the country. Previous exhibits include The Massillon (Ohio) Museum, Laramie (Wyo.) County Community College and Texas A&M University. The works are currently on display at The Western Heritage Center in Billings, Montana through Dec. 1, 2007. Montana Quarterly, Referee, America West Airlines and Harper's Magazines have also featured Morgan's works in past issues.

It has some of the most wonderful photography I've seen. Please check out his site, and thanks to everyone that is now enjoying "The Huddle".

Preview of California Interscholastic Federation Pac-5 Semis

Year-in and year-out the PAC-5 in the California Interscholastic Federation's Southern Section has provided some of the best football in a very talented state.

On Friday four of the best in 2007 will play a doubleheader at the Home Depot Center in Carson to decide who will play for the PAC-5 championship.

The first game will feature Crespi (Encino) taking on Servite (Anaheim) in a match-up of head coaching buddies. Servite head man Troy Thomas will square off with Jeremiah Ross of Crespi. Thomas was the head coach at Crespi before moving on to Servite, and while he was turning the Celts program around he brought-in Thomas to be his offensive coordinator.

Before Thomas, Crespi was 1-19 during the two previous seasons. He left for Servite after the 2004 season and Ross took over Crespi's program, which last week beat nationally-ranked Mater Dei.

In the other semifinal, Long Beach Poly, which began the season nationally-ranked plays Orange Lutheran, which won last year's California Division I championship.

Smith Center Wins 4th Straight Kansas Title

For the first time this season, Smith Center (KS) trailed in a football game. And even though Pittsburg Colgan was able to take a 7-0 lead on the three-time Kansas Class 2-1A champs and hold the Redman 27 points under their per game average, it wasn't enough as Smith Center won its fourth straight crown 40-14.

#15 Pittsburgh Central Catholic Beats Gateway in Battle of National Powers

No matter what happens around the country over the next month, Friday night's WPIAL AAAA Championship game may go down as the best finish to a championship high school football games this year.

With less than 90 seconds to play, and Pittsburgh Central Catholic leading Gateway 21-13 PCC defensive back Emmanuele Matthews picked off a pass and returned it 85-yards for a Viking touchdown and a 28-13 lead with 62 seconds to play. But 62 seconds was all Gateway needed to send the game to overtime.

First the Gators scored on an 8-yard touchdown pass from Rob Kalkstein to close the gap to 28-20 with 31 seconds left. Then the Gators recovered an on-side kick. The comeback was completed when Gateway dug into its bag of tricks using a Kalkstein pass to Jonanthan Pryor to the 12 and just before Pryor was tackled he lateraled the ball to Cam Sadler who ran into the end zone with just one second left. The two point conversion sent the game into overtime.

Gateway scored first in OT, but missed the extra point and that was all Pittsburgh Central Catholic needed to win its third WPIAL title in five years. PCC won 35-34 on a made extra point.

Pittsburgh Central Catholic, which is ranked #15 by USA Today, is now 13-0 and advances to the Pennsylvania state quarterfinals. Gateway began the season ranked by USA Today, but lost its opener to another nationally-ranked team, Cardinal Mooney, in the Ohio vs. USA Challenge.
