In another Olympic League game:

Calvary Chapel 33, Whittier Christian 6--Calvary Chapel's running game, led by David Kuhn and Kan Nash, took control in the second half and overpowered Whittier Christian, 33-6, at Westminster High School.

Whittier Christian (5-4, 1-3) took a 6-0 lead on Mike Alexanian's 10-yard touchdown run, capping off a seven-play, 53-yard drive on its opening possession. The Herald offense was stopped the rest of the game, however.
