Taft 31, Chatsworth 18--The Toreadors completed a perfect regular season behind quarterback Nick DiPadova, who completed 13 of 24 passes for 205 yards and three touchdowns at Chatsworth. DiPadova threw scoring passes to Keith Johnson, Ryan Long and Alex Scheer. Taft (10-0, 7-0) played without wide receiver Damon Coleman, who was suspended along with tailback Marquis Brignac, reportedly for being involved in a fight. Larry Jones, replacing Brignac, gained 170 yards in 19 carries.
