Preview with a schedule of all games from the area’s top high school soccer games on Friday and junior college games on Saturday.
Games start at 7pm unless noticed
Dorsey (2-1) (2-0) in San Pedro
Outlook: The Dons defeated Santa Monica (14–0) and Narbonne (48–7) to start the season. He suffered a 30-7 loss to Roosevelt last week. Former USC running back Staffon Johnson is in his first full season as coach of the Dons. San Pedro returned to action last week to beat Bell 56-0 to record a second straight shutout. The Pirates took a 42-0 lead after the first quarter. Aidan Jackson threw four touchdown passes, three to Cajuan Bullard and the other to Robert Sarmiento. The Dawns and Pirates met in 2018, with San Pedro winning 22-20.
Ban on Palos Verdes (3-0) (0-3), 3 p.m.
Outlook: In another interesting matchup this week, the Pilots are heading back up the hill to take on the Sea Kings. Banning went to the Peninsula two weeks ago to beat the Panthers 38-13. Last week, the Pilots beat North Torrance 54-40 to return to another high-scoring night. The Pilots average 47.3 points in three matches this season. PV has scored just 24 points against three opponents (Mission Hills, Corona del Mar and Edison), who are jointly 9-3. Things don’t get easier as Jacob Galloway (472 yards, five TDs) and the pilots travel.
CATHEDRAL IN LAWNDALE (1-2) (0-2)
Outlook: The Phantoms defeated El Camino Real 45–0 in the first season on 20 August. Since then, they have struggled, losing to Downey (36-6) and Loyola (34-6). The Cardinals will make their home debuts after visiting Carlsbad (30–7) and Cajon (18–13). Freshman quarterback Seth Schig completed 12 of 20 passes for 238 yards, losing to Cajon last Saturday. Derek Boyd reaches for 101 yards. The Cardinals’ key would be to limit the mistakes and penalties that played a big part in their loss to the Cajon.
LEUZINGER (2-1) BISHOP IN AMAT (1-2)
Outlook: After defeating La Habra (44–14) in their first match of the season, the Lancers ran into trouble against a pair of Trinity League opponents. The Lancers have been knocked out 105-14 in consecutive defeats to St. John’s Bosco and Servite. The Olympian is recovering from a 35-21 loss to Long Beach Poly last Thursday. Senior quarterback Ashley Tucker Jr has emerged as the offensive leader. He has completed 47 of 75 passes for 726 yards with six touchdowns and three interceptions. He also leads the Olympian’s ground attack with 436 yards and four touchdowns. Later this week, the Olympians have another road test to end their non-league schedule at Mission Viejo.
