Unstoppable. That's the only word to describe Corona Centennial's no-huddle, one-back offense Thursday night in its Big VIII League championship game against Corona Roosevelt. The No. 2-ranked Huskies scored touchdowns on their first nine offensive possessions en route to a 63-21 victory, improving their record to 10-0 and leaving no doubt that they will be an overwhelming favorite when the Inland Division playoffs begin next week. Over a two-game period, Centennial scored touchdowns on 19 consecutive possessions.

A look at some of the Southland's top high school football games: No. 2 Corona Centennial (0-0) at No. 13 Temecula Chaparral (0-0) Tonight at 7:30 Chaparral upset Centennial in the 2006 playoffs, then suffered an upsetting 54-point loss to the Huskies last season in an Inland Division semifinal. Now the Pumas will open against Centennial, which wanted to upgrade its nonleague schedule to prepare for its first season of Big VIII League play. A defensive front that Huskies Coach Matt Logan described as "one of the best we've had" will be tested by Chaparral junior Jonathan Diaz, who rushed for 1,221 yards and 16 touchdowns as a sophomore.
