Football: Chatsworth unleashes Tyger Goslin in 60-46 win over Viewpoint — A year ago as a sophomore, quarterback Tyger Goslin didn't get to play for Chatsworth until October after sitting out the first month of the season following his transfer from Westlake. The Chancellors and Goslin had little time to adjust. Now that he's had a year of preparation, Goslin and the Chancellors are feeling much more comfortable on offense.

Baseball: USA 18U team is one win away from playing for gold medal — The USA 18U team is one win away from reaching the gold medal game in the WBSC 18U World Cup in Japan after a 6-5 victory over Cuba. Reggie Lawson from Victor Valley High threw four shutout innings of relief, striking out four. Kevin Gowdy from Santa Barbara had two scoreless innings of relief.

Nolan McDonald helps Poly pull out 20-17 win over Narbonne — The physicality, athleticism and pure strength on display during Thursday night's big-boy football game between 19-time Southern Section champion Long Beach Poly and City Section power Harbor City Narbonne brought out UCLA Coach Jim Mora, several college players and several thousand prep fans. They didn't leave disappointed.

Simmons said the section is still waiting for paperwork to determine Henry's eligibility.

Football: Bring your checkbook for Loyola-Highland game — There's probably no more expensive ticket for a high school football game in Southern California than Friday's nonleague game between Palmdale Highland and host Loyola Loyola is charging $15 for adults to attend the game, because the school has high expenses this season in its decision to play four home games on its campus.
