Crespi, St. Francis and Canyon lost last week. Crespi was the only team to stay in the L.A. North top 10. The Celts lost a crucial Serra League game, 28-14, to Bishop Amat. St. Francis lost its first game of the season, 44-30, to Gardena Serra.

But Canyon might have suffered the most embarassing setback, losing 34-7 to Foothill League rival Valencia. Canyon lost its first game of the season and let a golden opportunity to unseat Valencia as the Foothill League champ slip away.

Westlake and Ventura won to stay undefeated. Sierra Canyon enters the top 10 with an undefeated 7-0 record. Valencia comes in at No. 10, despite a 4-3 record.

Here’s a look at the L.A. North top 10:
  1. (1) Westlake (7-0) – The Warriors easily took care of Moorpark, erasing a 7-0 first-quarter deficit and rolling to a 34-13 Marmonte League win. Quarterback Justin Moore threw three touchdown passes and running back Dashon Hunt rushed for 117 yards and a touchdown.
  2. (3) Alemany (5-2) – The Warriors from Mission Hills had a bye last week. But at least they didn’t lose. They’ve had two weeks to prepare for a Serra League showdown with Crespi on Friday night.
  3. (4) Chaminade (6-1) – The Eagles showed Harvard-Westlake no mercy in a 55-0 shutout. They were up 49-0 at halftime and the game ended with a running clock. Running back Terrell Newby scored three touchdowns and had 120 rushing yards.
  4. (2) Crespi (4-2) – The Celts committed four turnovers and lost their first Serra League game of the season to Bishop Amat, 28-14. The Lancers scored two touchdowns in the third quarter to break a 7-7 tie at halftime.
  5. (6) St. Bonaventure (6-1) – The Seraphs crushed Agoura, 56-0. Shaun Wick scored three touchdowns for St. Bonaventure, one on a 58-yard punt return. He scored his other two touchdowns on runs of 41 and 47 yards.
