The Falcons of Torrey Pines jump up a couple spots to No. 5 after their 31-24 victory over Carlsbad. In the No. 7 spot are the Lincoln Hornets who completely dominated the Christian Patriots 20-7. In doing so they moved up from the No. 9 spot.

La Costa Canyon dropped from No. 4 to No. 8 after losing to San Marcos in an epic game which they trailed big early. Moving up a spot to No. 9 are the Saint Augustine Saints who defeated Mission Bay 56-15. Finally in the No. 10 spot is Madison who dropped from the No. 5 spot after their 38-22 defeat at the hands of Point Loma.
