Week seven saw one of UCLA's receiver commits have a huge night, a City Section game with three future Bruins become a scoring fest, UCLA's committed quarterback have his best game of the season and another future Bruin setting his second major record in two weeks.
Game of the Week: Carlsbad def. El Camino, 29-14
Carlsbad bounced back from a loss the week before to Oceanside, while El Camino couldn't sustain the momentum from a win over Vista. UCLA's committed wide receiver, Nelson Rosario, though, was the player of the game. Rosario had five catches for 189 yards including an 80-yard touchdown and a 25-yard reception in triple coverage.
Crenshaw def. Dorsey, 46-28
Despite a big night on the ground by UCLA commit Johnathan Franklin, the Cougars measured some revenge in beating Dorsey by 18. Franklin rushed for 220 yards on 13 carries (almost 17 yards a carry) and scored two touchdowns. UCLA commit Rahim Moore had an interception for the Dons. For Crenshaw, Kemonte Bateman had six catches but was kept out of the end zone while elite sophomore Hayes Pullard scored three touchdowns for the Cougars.
Birmingham def. Woodland Hills El Camino, 47-0
UCLA commit Donovan Carter and Fresno State commit Malik Jackson helped pace the Patriots defense to their sixth game of 14 points or less against the opposition, but the story of the night was another record for Bruin commit Milton Knox. A week after setting the City Section career rushing title, Knox scored three touchdowns to move him into first place all-time in career touchdowns with 83, breaking the record held by Marlon Lucky, now at Nebraska. Knox rushed for 68 yards on only nine carries with the three scores as the reserves played most of the game, but it put him over the 1,000-yard mark for the third straight season.
Huntington Beach Edison def. Marina, 62-7
Edison quarterback Nick Crissman, a UCLA commit, had the best performance of the season in the Chargers 62-7 win over Marina. Crissman threw for 358 yards and two touchdowns and ran in a score to help give Edison their first league win.
Fresno Edison def. Bullard, 35-0
Edison showed who the best team in Central California beating Bullard in a matchup of unbeatens.

Compton def. Long Beach Jordan, 27-6
The Tarbabes stayed unbeaten with the three-touchdown win over Jordan, and the defense turned in their fifth game of keeping the opponent to eight points or less. UCLA commit Datone Jones had nine tackles and a sack in the win.
Hart def. West Ranch, 36-15
UCLA commit Patrick Larimore has had double-digit tackle games this year five times, but none was better than his performance against West Ranch, when he recorded a career-high 20 tackles in the Indians seventh straight win. In his last three games, Larimore has 49 tackles. Delano Howell rushed for 123 yards on nine carries and scored a touchdown while B.R. Holbrook passed for 171 yards and three touchdowns.
St. Bonaventure def. Santa Barbara, 37-6
Darrell Scott, the nation's premier running back, rushed for 195 yards on 16 carries and scored a touchdown and also had a 50-yard punt. Scott did, though, fumble three times, losing two of them. Elite junior Patrick Hall had a big game, recording eight tackles, a sack, an interception and scoring a touchdown.
Katy def. Katy Morton Ranch, 52-12

Crespi def. St. Paul, 13-0

Culver City def. Morningside, 42-26
The Centaurs received a big night from UCLA commit Antwon Moutra, who had six catches for 150 yards and a touchdown as well as seven tackles. It was Moutra's fourth game over 100-yards this season, and the Centaurs stayed unbeaten at 7-0.

Damien Holmes, UCLA's committed defensive end, had one of his most complete games of the year, catching four passes for 87-yards including a 51-yard touchdown and defensively chipping in 12 tackles and his 12th sack of the year to keep Colton unbeaten in league play.
Arcadia def. Pasadena, 43-29
Arcadia quarterback Kevan Walker was named homecoming prince, but his contributions on the field were more important for the Apaches. Walker was 8-for-12 for 103 yards and had a touchdown run and a two-point conversion. Defensively, he had six tackles and an interception. Junior Todd Golper had four receptions for 67 yards and eight tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble.
