No. 1 Mater Dei (9-0, 4-0) vs. San Clemente (6-2-1, 2-1-1)
7:30 P.M. FRIDAY SAN CLEMENTE HIGH
If the Tritons don't get help this week from Capistrano Valley or Trabuco Hills, they might be in the unenviable position of having to upset the nation's second-ranked team to make the playoffs. "I don't think there's anybody in their right mind that would like to be in that position," said San Clemente Coach Mark McElroy, who thinks the South Coast League deserves an at-large berth. "They have a very outstanding team. I see no weaknesses. For us to beat them, they are going to have to have an unbelievably off night." To make matters worse, James Allen is questionable with a sore ankle.
