Game of the Week

11/13: High School Football: Newbury Park at Bishop Diego Bishop’s Cardinals enter the CIF play-offs with a 10-0 record for the second time in four years, but the odds are stacked against their reaching the semifinals as they did in 2012. Because of their past success, they have been moved into the Northern Division, one of the strongest in the Southern Section. Newbury Park (6-4) has student body of 2,600, while Bishop’s is 260. The Panthers are one of four teams out of the Camino League, which includes top-seeded Camarillo. Their quarterback, Cameron Rising, has thrown 36 touchdown passes. The Cardinals hope to shake loose their electrifying game-breaker, AV Bennett, whose five touchdowns in the last two weeks came on runs and kick returns from 52 to 95 yards. Bishop did win a coin flip to host a second-round game November 20 if it should advance. 7:30pm. La Playa Stadium, S.B. City College. $5-$10. Call 967-1266.
