Friday's top high school football games: No. 23 Encino Crespi (5-1) at No. 8 La Puente Bishop Amat (6-0), 7 p.m. ? Crespi has been the odd team out of the playoffs from the Serra League the last two years, but the Celts have hung tough with Bishop Amat. In 2008, Crespi lost by one point to the Lancers, and last year the Celts handed the Serra League champions their only league defeat. Crespi has reeled off five consecutive victories since a season-opening loss to Compton Dominguez, with quarterback Kenny Stenhouse passing for 364 yards and a school-record six touchdowns last week during a 53-47 victory over Woodland Hills Taft.

Bishop Amat High School left little doubt which is the best team in the Angelus League Friday night, scoring a convincing 34-0 victory over Servite in front of a homecoming crowd of 5,500 in Kiefer Stadium at La Puente. The win was the Lancers' 28th straight in regular-season play and their seventh straight this year. Bishop Amat hasn't lost on its home field since the ninth week of the 1984 season.

Bishop Amat High School's 10-7 nonleague victory over Esperanza at Bradford Stadium, a game that owed so much to penalty flags, ended Friday night on a play that officials decided not to throw one. With time running out in the game, Esperanza had the ball on its 40-yard line. Quarterback Jason Moler threw a pass intended for Doug Saunders, but Saunders and defensive back Loren Cannon bumped at the Bishop Amat 20. When Saunders fell, Cannon turned and intercepted the pass.

How will this Bishop Amat High School football team be remembered, now that James Free's desperation downfield lob to Daylon McCutcheon was high enough but not nearly long enough, nestling instead in the arms of Mater Dei safety Pete Campbell 27 seconds before the final gun? How does "No. 1 In The Nation, No. 3 In Orange County" sound? For the second time in four seasons, Mater Dei has turned USA Today's national high school football rankings into a joke.

Walking past Room 607, Merritt Hemenway slowed his gait and narrowed his brows. Something about this seemingly mundane spot had diverted his attention. He paused. It was morning at Bishop Amat Memorial High School near La Puente, where Hemenway is the principal. For just a moment, he was a high school senior again. It was Nov. 22, 1963, and he was in third-period physics. Msgr.

Running against the competition and not the clock had been a key to sprinter Jasmine Baldwin's success all season. But when Baldwin, a La Puente Bishop Amat senior, arrived at Hughes Stadium in Sacramento for the final day of the state championships on June 5, she figured that to win, she would have to run in the 11.25- to 11.35-second range in the 100 meters and in the 22.80 to 22.90 range in the 200.

Chris Rix has a variety of motivations to draw on for tonight's football game, but he said revenge is not among them. Rix was the quarterback last season for La Puente Bishop Amat, helping the Lancers to the Southern Section Division I semifinals. Over the summer, he transferred to Santa Margarita. When he left, many thought Bishop Amat would not be as good as last year's 11-1-1 team.

Rix, who has made an oral commitment to attend Florida State, was at practice Tuesday morning and participated in a four-way passing league game Tuesday night. Rix (6 feet 4, 200 pounds) played last season at La Puente Bishop Amat and the Lancers (11-1-1) reached the Southern Section Division I semifinals.

It did not matter whether Daylon McCutcheon was playing on defense, offense or special teams. Whenever he was on the football field, good things usually happened for La Puente Bishop Amat. The annual task of selecting the top high school player in Southern California was made easy this year by McCutcheon's exceptional versatility. As a result, he was presented the Glenn Davis Award earlier this week.

Tim Salter looks in a mirror and sees . . . Loyola. Salter's Bishop Amat team runs the football and plays strong defense.
