When Edison and Servite last clashed on the gridiron, that meeting was played in less than ideal conditions.
On a soggy night and sloppy field last December at Angel Stadium, the two prominent football programs faced off for the biggest of prizes: a CIF Pac-5 Division championship. In the end, the Friars sloshed their way through for a 16-6 victory against a Chargers team they had lost to, 23-9, earlier in the season.
No rain is in the forecast Friday, but expect some heated moments when the teams collide at 7:30 p.m. at Cerritos College in Norwalk.
Edison and Servite — ranked fifth and second, respectively, in the CIF Pac-5 Division ??? have met annually during the regular season for the past decade and went on to meet up three times in postseason play in three of those years. The Chargers hold an 8-5 edge in head-to-head meetings during that span.
