Oak Park High's 1986 run-and-shoot offense opened Saturday night and perhaps closed also as Salesian capitalized on seven Eagle turnovers in a 34-3 rout at Roosevelt High. Salesian controled the game from the start, recovering a fumble on the opening kickoff. Luis De La Cruz's interception set up a four-yard scoring run by Kyle Franklin with 5:15 left in the half. Less than two minutes later, Tony Gonzales scored on a 55-yard run after Salesion had again taken the ball away from Oak Park.

Like a mystery novel with lots of plots, twists and turns, the Catholic Athletic Assn. is scheduled to meet on Tuesday and try to hammer out new leagues for football, and one of the newest proposals from Crespi has a seven-team Serra League made up of the Celts, Cathedral, Harvard-Westlake, La Salle, Salesian, St. Francis and St. Paul. Crespi has been a Pac-5 team and made the Pac-5 playoffs last season, but the program is down to 65 players, and schools officials have joined St. Francis in promoting their proposal.

The Catholic Athletic Association voted Tuesday to add Cathedral to a four-team league made up of Loyola, Bishop Amat and Gardena Serra for football only. Previously, Salesian was in the league but won an appeal, forcing the CAA to take another vote. The league is expected to be in the Pac-5 Division. Cathedral was selected over St. Francis. The other likely Pac-5 Division league will be made up of Alemany, Notre Dame, Crespi and Chaminade. Cathedral will appeal to the Southern Section Council on April 30, football Coach Kevin Pearson said.

La Canada St. Francis had better do lots of lobbying if it wants to avoid being moved up to a Pac-5 Division league in football. The Catholic Athletic Association is scheduled to meet on Tuesday to take another vote on new leagues after Salesian won its appeal from the Southern Section Executive Committee this past week. The deadline to submit proposals is Saturday afternoon, and three of the four proposals already submitted have St. Francis moving from the Mission League to one of the two four-team Pac-5 leagues.
