|Santa Margarita (2-0) Rancho Santa Margarita, CA
As expected, Santa Margarita dispatched Long Beach Jordan with relative ease. The bigger concern appears to be the continuing loss of players to Pac-5 foe Mission Viejo as UCLA commitment Erik Bunte looks to be transferring to the Diablos this week as well,
marking the third Eagle to leave to Mission Viejo since the end of last season.
