On the opening night of the Pac-5 Division playoffs, Anaheim Servite turned a tie game at halftime into a rout with three third-quarter touchdowns en route to a 42-21 victory over Westlake Village Westlake on Friday night. “The third quarter was a big one,” Servite quarterback Travis Waller said. “We had to come out strong and put the game away.” It was a good night for the Trinity League. Besides the Friars (6-5), top-seeded Bellflower St. John Bosco defeated Agoura, 69-24, and Santa Ana Mater Dei won over Oaks Christian, 28-17.

It's called Trinity League madness, and it begins Thursday night with the league football opener between Santa Ana Mater Dei and Bellflower St. John Bosco at Santa Ana Stadium. What separates the Trinity League from virtually all other leagues is how tough, competitive and intense each game is played. "You have to come to play every week," said Anaheim Servite Coach Troy Thomas, whose team has won or shared the last five Trinity League titles. This season, the six teams have a combined record of 24-6 going into league play.

There's a lot to debate in high school football this season, including who's the best quarterback in Southern California and how many points it will take to defeat Corona Centennial, but no one can challenge one indisputable fact: the strength of the Trinity League. For the first time in the history of The Times' top-25 rankings, all six Trinity League teams are ranked. It's just another reminder of how grueling the weekly league games will be when they start in early October. "It kind of validates what people say about the league in terms of Southern California football," Santa Ana Mater Dei Coach Bruce Rollinson said.

Championship teams find a way to succeed when things aren't going smoothly. Top-ranked Bellflower St. John Bosco had a fumble inside the 10-yard line, an interception in the end zone and a bad snap over the head of its punter in the first half Friday night against Santa Ana Mater Dei. And yet, the unbeaten Braves held a 14-2 halftime lead on the strength of Sean McGrew's 49-yard touchdown run and 33-yard touchdown catch. In the second half, St. John Bosco kept rolling and clinched its second consecutive Trinity League championship with a suffocating defensive performance in a 24-2 victory over the Monarchs (7-2, 2-2)
