Canyon's Ken Sollom has passed for 2,535 yards and 27 touchdowns, and Hart's Jim Bonds has passed for 2,429 yards and 32 touchdowns. Yet the most impressive statistic may be their interception percentages. Sollom has thrown five interceptions in 246 passes (2.03%) and Bonds has thrown six interceptions in 245 passes (2.45%). . . . Newbury Park's Jayson Merrill set a school record with 1,494 yards passing this year.
Defense: Kennedy allowed Dorsey only eight yards rushing last week and has allowed just 304 yards rushing in 10 games. . . . Crespi held Edison to only 75 yards, but that hurt the team's rushing defense average. The Celts allowed only 39.1 yards per game during the regular season. Including the first round of the playoffs, Crespi has given up only 466 yards on the ground.
Receiving: Hart's Chris Hite, the area's leading receiver, caught 4 passes for 46 yards in last week's first round playoff victory over Arroyo Grande to give him 67 catches for 861 yards and 15 touchdowns. Agoura's Mike Eckel, the area's second-leading receiver, had 4 catches for 49 yards in a season-ending loss to St. Joseph. Eckel finished with 54 catches for 896 yards and 6 touchdowns.
