The Top 10 held firm in this week’s Coaches Poll, but there was movement further down the ladder where the final playoff teams will be selected from. The most movement was seen in the 11 – 16 spots. Both Edison and Murrieta Mesa reached historic highs for their respective programs.

The Chargers (10-3) inched up to No. 11 from No. 12 after their thrilling come-from-behind overtime victory over Los Alamitos. Murrieta Mesa defeated No. 12 Aliso Niguel and No. 20 Newport Harbor last week to move up to No. 14 from No. 16. Los Alamitos dropped all the way from No. 11 to a precarious No. 16 position with Santiago and Huntington Beach breathing down their necks for what will likely be the last playoff spot.

  1. Tesoro has one okay win, only played 10 games, 14 all year. FH already has 16! Seriously respect comes with full schedule and teams outside OC…..Mesa just blew out Aliso.

    • I know I’m a week late replying to you on this one, but the reason why Newport Harbor is ranked so low is because of their record (3-10 going into that week). Their only wins (excluding the one against Edison) were against Marina, Woodbridge and St.Francis, none of which are ranked in the top 20 in Orange County (except for St.Francis, which is ranked 20th in LA). And as you can see, those 10 losses haven’t done the Sailors any good. Newport Harbor should be able to rise this week, as they beat No.11 Edison 8-7 and barely lost to No.9 Mater Dei 7-6. I’m not making any promises and I don’t have any part of the top 20, but it’s a possibility that Newport Harbor will rise in the 4/24/17 poll.
