El Camino (1-8) at No. 10 Ventura (5-4)
VC Sportsplex, 1 p.m.
LAST WEEK: Canyons 37, Ventura 24; El Camino 29, Hancock 21
SERIES HISTORY: El Camino has won all seven meetings dating back to
1953. El Camino won the last meeting, 38-14, in 2004.
GAME FACTS: The playoff window may nearly be shut for the Ventura, but
the Pirates can become bowl eligible with a win. Success would also
make school history, as Ventura has never beaten powerhouse El Camino,
which has fallen on hard times this year due to forfeits incurred by
playing an ineligible player. Don't let the record foul you, the
Warriors are still tough. They are No. 4 in total offense (427.2 ypg)
and No. 6 in total defense (315.6 ypg) and coming off their first
official victory. Ventura QB Antavius Sims needs 94 yards rushing to
become the ninth Pirate to rush for 1,000 yards. Sims is also No. 2 in
total offense, with a school record 2,630 yards. LBs Brenden Daley and
Kenny Breaux are 10 and 11 tackles, respectively, short of 100 for the
season. DE John Lattimore is No. 2 in SoCal with eight sacks. CB
Kentrell Everett has four interceptions, despite playing just half the
No. 12 Moorpark (6-3) at No. 11 Los Angeles Harbor (7-2)
Casey Field, 6 p.m.
LAST WEEK: Citrus 20, Moorpark 15; Los Angeles Harbor 53, Antelope Valley 48
SERIES HISTORY: Moorpark leads the series, 14-6, dating back to 1968.
Moorpark won the last meeting, 28-26, in 2004.
GAME FACTS: The six-game winning streak perished last week, but not
the Raiders hopes for another conference title. The Western Conference
can be won on the road tonight in Wilmington. The Raiders, who are No.
8 against the run, allowing 3.2 yards per carry, must stop the No. 1
ground game in Southern California. Behind RB John White (168 att.,
1,390 yards, 15 TDs) and a massive offensive line, the Seahawks are
averaging 274.4 yards and more than three TDs per game. White is No. 1
in all-purpose yardage (194.1 ypg), No. 2 in rushing and No. 2 in
scoring. Harbor is also No. 1 in sacks (32) and punt returns (15.7
ypr). Theron West has returned two punts for scores. Moorpark's secret
to success is easy to see. The Raiders are No. 4 in scoring defense
(21.3 ppg) and turnover margin (plus 6) and No. 7 in pass offense
(252.0 ypg). QB Zach Shultis is 95 passing yards away from the
2,000-yard mark. WR Chris Gant leads Southern California in receptions
(80), receiving yardage (1,127) and touchdowns (17).
