Santa Ana Mater Dei (4-0) at Harbor City Narbonne (4-0), 7 p.m. (Time Warner Cable, Channel 101, midnight ): Narbonne could be the best City Section team since Crenshaw's group in 2009 and Birmingham's group in 2007. "It's one of the best teams I've seen on tape in a lot of years," Mater Dei Coach Bruce Rollinson said. In trying to deal with the Gauchos' speed and talent, Mater Dei will try to pick up first downs, control the clock and limit mistakes. Receiver-linebacker Thomas Duarte will be key on both sides of the ball.

Concerning all this eligibility and disqualification between the CIF and Orange County football teams. (Nov. 16) Let's set aside all the disappointments and high emotions involved. The facts are, if the rules violated are agreed upon between the CIF and the school, the offending team is disqualified. Period. All this lawyer and courtroom activity is absolutely ridiculous. Next we will witness a referee or umpire making a decision that determines the outcome of a game, and within a day the losers will be in court asking the judge to overturn that decision.
