WEST HILLS -- Not many observers could have imagined the Chaminade High football team would still be undefeated at this stage of the season. But low and behold, the Eagles are, fully equipped with an unblemished record to boot.
Chaminade dominated visiting Los Angeles Cathedral from start to finish on Friday night. The end result was 30-6 Mission Legue victory, but perhaps more important, the win sets up a showdown with Gardena Serra next week in a game where the league title could very well be decided and the mettle of the Eagles will surely be tested.
"We've had a great season, but it's far from over, far, far from over,'' Chaminade coach Ed Croson said. "Everyone around here knows what's on the horizon, but we couldn't beat Cathedral if we were worried about Serra. We were focused on the task at hand this week, no talk about Serra, no film on Serra. The only thing on our mind was Cathedral. Tomorrow we'll worry about Serra.''
Chaminade (8-0, 3-0) made its first appearance of the season in ESPNLosAngeles.com’s Top 25 rankings this week, coming in at No. 25. And after Friday's effort against the Phantoms (5-3, 1-2), one in which they didn't overlook the opponent, it appears as if the selection was worthy.
"We'll celebrate this win tonight, and be happy about being undefeated, but then it's time to go to work getting ready for Serra in the morning,'' Chaminade's Terrell Newby said. "We'll be focused and ready next week for the biggest game of the season.''
Cathedral narrowly avoided the shutout when Hayden Rettig found Ryan Longoria on 35-yard touchdown pass with 2:15 left. The damage, however, had already been done as Chaminade built what proved to be an insurmountable 30-0 advantage heading into the fourth quarter.
