Football: The debate begins for No. 1 in City Section

October 30, 2010 | 10:06 am

Thank goodness there's a playoff in the City Section for football, because the debate is heating up over who's No. 1 in Division I.

Carson (6-2) has taken over the No. 1 ranking in the latest ratings based on strength of schedule, results and margin of victory. That's going to be evidence for Carson Coach Elijah Asante when he tries to argue for a No. 1 seeding.

Dorsey (8-0) is No. 2 despite having a very weak rating for its strength of schedule. And defending champion Crenshaw (6-2) is No. 3.

Asante believes victories over Santa Ana Mater Dei and Harbor City Narbonne give the Colts an edge.

Dorsey and Crenshaw are scheduled to meet on Nov. 12.

The playoffs end with a championship game expected to be at the Coliseum on Dec. 11.
