A look at the top high school football games in the Southland this week.


Mission Viejo (2-1) at Mission Hills Bishop Alemany (1-2), 7 p.m.: Alemany is hoping to go on an eight-game win streak, win the Mission League title and get an invitation to the Division 1 playoffs. This game would help its cause. Mission Viejo has an outstandin­g passing duo in junior quarterbac­k Kadin Semonza and junior receiver Mikey Matthews. But the Warriors’ defense has been impressive and is loaded with college prospects, including cornerback Ephesians Prysock and Notre Dame-bound linebacker Niuafe Tuihalamak­a. The pick: Alemany.

Los Alamitos (4-0) vs. Santa Margarita (3-1) at Saddleback College, 7 p.m.: It’s final-exam time for Los Alamitos. The Griffins get to show what they can do against a Trinity League opponent. Quarterbac­k Malachi Nelson has been preparing for this opportunit­y. The Eagles will counter with a strong pass rush and hope improving quarterbac­k Jaxon Potter is ready for the challenge. The pick: Los Alamitos.
