Crescenta Valley 23, Lawndale Leuzinger 0--The Falcons (10-1) won their first playoff game since 1992 by shutting down the Olympians' double wing-T offense, which entered the game averaging more than 300 yards rushing a game, at Glendale High.

In Division IV:

Westlake 63, Santa Barbara 7--Cory Miles threw four touchdown passes and completed all 13 of his passes for 233 yards, as the Warriors dominated at home.
