To win the East Valley League championship outright, Verdugo Hills (23-4 10-0) needs a victory either Wednesday at home against Grant (7-3) or Friday at home against Sun Valley Poly (9-2).

When Jeff Engilman retired as football coach at Arleta after the 2010 season, he believed he left the program in the capable hands of assistant Dan Kelly, who he had trained at Sylmar and Arleta. Kelly and his group of strong assistants have kept the program going strong. After seasons of 9-2 and 8-3 while playing in City Section Division I, the Mustangs opened their season last week with a 35-21 victory over El Camino Real. Sophomore running back Isaiah Gable rushed for 127 yards in just six carries.

As expected, Harbor City Narbonne was made the top-seeded team for the Los Angeles City Section Division I football playoffs by a selection committee Saturday morning. The Gauchos (10-0) wrapped up the Marine League title with a 53-7 rout of Gardena and will host No. 16 Los Angeles Locke in the first round Friday. If seedings hold, they will face No. 4 Carson in the semifinals in a rematch of Narbonne's 26-20 win Oct. 5. "Winning league is nice, but any coach or player would gladly trade that for a ring," Narbonne Coach Manuel Douglas said.
