Servite's win creates three-way tie for title

November 15, 2008|Mark Medina | staff reports

Anaheim Servite High's 48-31 victory over Bellflower St. John Bosco on Friday night at Cerritos College moved the Friars into a three-way tie for the Trinity League title alongside Orange Lutheran and Santa Ana Mater Dei.

Servite sports information director Bill Knudson said a series of coin flips at Servite this morning at 8 would determine seedings for the playoffs. The teams are considered tri-champions of the league.

Servite (7-3, 4-1), ranked No. 16 in the Southland by The Times, defeated Lutheran (8-2, 4-1) last month. Lutheran defeated Mater Dei (7-3, 4-1) on Thursday and Mater Dei defeated Servite last month, creating a tiebreaker scenario that couldn't be broken by head-to-head matchups.

With the victory Friday, Servite secured at least a share of its fourth consecutive league championship.

Friars running back Gregory Portis ran for 232 yards in 34 carries with four touchdowns.

Quarterback Keith Price completed 14 of 28 passes for 192 yards and three touchdowns with an interception for the No. 13 Braves (7-3, 2-3). He also had 117 yards in 14 carries.
