 The Southern Section Division 1 rankings are about to undergo a major change after Scott Shultz (9-0) threw a two-hit shutout on Friday, helping Fountain Valley defeat Huntington Beach, 6-0, to complete a two-game sweep of the Oilers and send Fountain Valley (15-6, 9-1) into first place in the Sunset League. Daniel Patzlaff, Dillon Persinger, Willie Aguilar and Junior Aguilar each had two hits. Schultz, who saved Wednesday's 9-7 victory over No. 1-ranked Huntington Beach, struck out five and walked two. In the Trinity League, Griffin Canning got the save and JJ Carr had two hits in Santa Margarita's 2-1 win over Servite.

 In a very competitive Sunset League, Huntington Beach Edison (11-3, 3-0) might be considered an early season surprise under first-year Coach Cameron Chinn. But don't tell that to pitcher Noah Kronfly, who improved to 4-0 on Friday and outdueled UCLA-bound Jacob Nix in a 1-0 victory over Los Alamitos. Phillip Knapp drove in the game's only run with a second-inning RBI single. Kronfly allowed two hits. Fountain Valley defeated Newport Harbor, 10-0. Dylan Persinger hit a two-run home run. Brock Lundquist hit his fourth home run of the season.

 Don't be surprised if the Southern Section Division 1 champion in baseball comes from the Sunset League this spring. As good as the Trinity and Mission leagues will be, the Sunset is loaded at the top. Huntington Beach returns all of its top players from a team that knocked off No. 1-seeded Mater Dei last season in the playoffs. Fountain Valley has picked up an outstanding transfer infielder in Willie Aguilar, a junior from L.A. Cathedral. He's expected to play second base, because the shortstop is Oregon-bound Daniel Patzlaff.

The teams continue to trade touchdowns and through three quarters Sunset League rivals Newport Harbor and Huntington Beach are tied 21-21. Newport Harbor took a 21-14 lead on a nine-yard touchdown toss from Cole Norris to Keaton Cabley with 2:31 left in the third quarter, but the Oilers tied it on Hunter Simmons' 12-yard reception from Kai Ross with 11 seconds left in the quarter.

Winning a league title is supposed to be a precursor to a deep playoff run. In theory, at least. That scenario didn't pan out for 24 Southland high school football teams that won at least a share of a league title only to lose in the first round of the playoffs. Some of the losses weren't all that surprising. Bay League champion Manhattan Beach Mira Costa lost, 27-17, to Moorpark of the very competitive Marmonte League in the Northern Division. But other defeats qualified as head-scratchers.

If there were ever a time to rent a helicopter on a Friday night to avoid the traffic-snarled Southland freeways, this is the weekend to do it. There are so many top high school football games scheduled for Friday night that I'm going to feel guilty missing any one of them. Here are the many options to consider: Los Angeles Dorsey at Los Angeles Crenshaw. These two City Section powers have been on a hot streak in sending players to the college and professional ranks, and there might not be a team with better talent than unbeaten Crenshaw.

For those who don't understand the magic of high school sports, let me tell you about a phone conversation with Huntington Beach Edison defensive tackle Luke Gane after his team's 36-29 double-overtime victory over Santa Ana Mater Dei last week. He was the player who broke through the middle, along with teammate Steven Malone, to tackle Mater Dei's Jordan Allen for a one-yard loss on fourth down from the five-yard line to end the game. To hear the thrill and excitement still present 72 hours later spoke volumes about what a teaching moment it was. Gane said his coaches called for an all-out blitz.

For those who thought Huntington Beach Edison was a mere passing-league power, take notice. The Chargers inflicted so many tattoos on hard hits against Anaheim Servite on Friday night at Huntington Beach High that the Friars are going to need buckets of ice to recover. "They kicked our butts," Servite Coach Troy Thomas said. Edison's 23-9 victory over Servite, ranked No. 2 by The Times, ought to put to rest any doubts about the No. 6 Chargers, who were unbeatable last summer in seven-on-seven passing competitions but untested with pads on. Let's just say their fourth consecutive victory this season will silence the skeptics.
