HUNTINGTON BEACH - After having survived a flurry of shots throughout all of regulation and overtime play of Thursday's CIF Southern Section Division 1 boys' soccer quarterfinal game, Marina Coach Jeff Schofield had Servite right where he wanted the visiting Friars: facing off against his ace goalie, David Elias. As the sun began to drop and a hush fell over a huge crowd at the Marina field, Elias was first to take on and defend the west-end goal in the winner-takes-all penalty kicks phase of the match. The senior proceeded to come up with two huge stops, getting blocks on the first and third shot attempts by the Friars.

Edison High football Coach Dave White said he thinks his team might have been looking ahead to Servite during last week’s win over Dana Hills. Tough to blame them, since plenty of Orange County high school football fans have had the date circled on their calendars as well. The Friars (3-0) and Chargers (3-0) will finally rumble at 7 p.m. Friday at Huntington Beach High. The game is Edison’s homecoming. Servite is the top-ranked team in the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division poll; the Friars have been there since a 30-7 dismantling of defending champion Long Beach Poly three weeks ago. The Los Angeles Times has Servite ranked as the No. 2 team in Southern California, behind only Crenshaw; Edison is at No. 6. Calhisports.

The defensive game plan might not be quite as simplistic as “Stop No. 4,” but that will be a big component of what the Chargers try to do Saturday night in the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division championship game at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. There’s no denying it. Servite senior quarterback Cody Fajardo, who has thrown for 2,115 yards, 18 touchdowns and just two interceptions, is the man for the Friars. He’s also their leading rusher (763 yards and seven touchdowns)

Edison took a five-spot tumble in this week?s CIF Southern Section Pac-5 football poll after losing Friday to Servite. The Chargers went into the game ranked third in the Pac-5 Division but fell to No. 8 this week after losing, 29-17, to the Friars. The win elevated Servite from seventh to fifth in the new poll. ?It was a great game,? Edison Coach Dave White said of the nonleague clash at Cerritos College. ?We had our chances, but they made the big plays to win it.? Long Beach Poly remains the Pac-5 leader at 3-0.

For the first three weeks of its season, the Edison High football team has looked quite impressive. Wins over Diamond Ranch, San Clemente and, most recently, Los Angeles Jordan, have put the Chargers at 3-0 and moved them up to No. 5 ranking in this week's CIF-Southern Section Pac-5 Division poll. That ranking will change in one way or another, and the Chargers will face their stiffest challenges yet over the course of the next two weeks — a period where, you might say, Edison has a parochial prerogative.

Testing, 1-2-3...4. From one big test to another, the Edison High football team has another exam it will attempt to pass Friday when the Chargers host Mater Dei at 7 p.m. at Orange Coast College. ?We had a big test last week against Servite and we have another big one this week in Mater Dei,? Edison Coach Dave White said. ?We lost a tough one to Servite, but now all of our focus is on Mater Dei. They are a very good team with an offense that really has been unstoppable.? Last week, Edison had its chances to beat Servite, but the Chargers suffered their first loss of the season, 29-17.

Two teams playing near the top of their game square off Friday at El Modena High in Orange, as Edison takes on host Servite in the quarterfinal-round of the CIF Pac-5 Division playoffs. The Chargers moved on in postseason play after dominating Crespi of Encino, 35-13, last Friday at Orange Coast College. That same night, Servite also posted an easy first-round win, defeating visiting Long Beach Wilson, 46-7. Friday's meeting is the second of the season between seventh-seeded Edison (9-2)

ANAHEIM — Coach Dave White instructed his players to turn around after the game, and watch the rows of black uniforms standing just feet away. Servite was going through its postgame "hut drill," and the Edison High football team watched every second on the damp field after the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division championship game. The Friars executed as well on the field during the game, too. They ended the Chargers’ season Saturday night by pulling off a 16-6 upset victory before an announced crowd of 11,860 at Angel Stadium.

The games seem to get bigger as the weeks roll on, and Week 4 of the prep football season certainly fits the bill. Local teams are trying to work out their final kinks before league play begins next month, and will do so against some stiff nonleague competition. For starters, Edison is taking on Mater Dei in a big, televised game. In other key games, Huntington Beach will face a highly-ranked Downey team that won a CIF championship last year, and Fountain Valley is on the road to face a Westminster squad that has worked its way up in the CIF Southern Section Southern Division rankings.

COSTA MESA - Earlier in the week, Dave White felt that his Edison High football team needed to be at its best to beat Servite, the sixth-ranked team in the CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division. The veteran head coach was right, but that wasn't the case for the Chargers Thursday at Orange Coast College. Early turnovers, and the inability to take advantage of scoring opportunities, hurt Edison's chances in the nonleague showdown. Servite, though, set the tone from the start and went on to claim a 31-14 victory.

Thursday marks the beginning of a three-week gauntlet to the nonleague portion of its schedule for the Edison High football team. For starters, the Servite Friars come calling on the Chargers in an intriguing 7 p.m. matchup at Orange Coast College. It's the first game in two weeks for the Chargers who were idle a week ago. Servite, meanwhile, has been anything but idle the past two weeks. Since falling in its opener to Las Vegas Bishop Gorman, the Friars have scored impressive victories over CIF Southern Section ranked opponents, Long Beach Poly and La Mirada.

Brian Anderson didn't call it his team's best effort. Still, his Huntington Beach Oilers had more than enough to take care of Servite on Tuesday in boys' water polo action. The Oilers were without the services of two players - including primary hole-set Ian Arnold (illness) - for the key nonleague matchup with the visiting Friars, but their depth and balance paid huge dividends in a 14-9 victory. Huntington led, 4-0, after one quarter and was in front, 10-3, by the half, in improving to 11-2.

Dave White said earlier in the week that it was imperative that his Edison Chargers keep mistakes to a minimum and finish offensive drives if they hoped to defeat Servite. The Chargers drove the ball on the Friars throughout the night and didn't give up an offensive touchdown in the second half of Friday's key CIF Pac-5 Division showdown at Huntington Beach High, but a costly interception return turned the tide and enabled the Friars to come away with a 27-14 victory. Edison took an early lead in the game but Servite scored the next 27 points to open up a comfortable advantage before 4,831 at Cap Sheue Field.

It's the fourth week of the season for the Edison High football team, and with it comes what has become a must-see game on the Chargers' schedule. For the seventh straight year, Edison is playing Servite in game No. 4. This year's nonleague matchup pits the two-time CIF Southern Section Pac-5 Division champion Friars against the Chargers. Both teams head into Friday's 7 p.m. showdown at what is certain to be a standing-room-only crowd at Huntington Beach High's Cap Sheue Field with 3-0 records.

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.
