Football: Lompoc and Chaminade are on collision course

November 18, 2012 | 11:47 am

Barring any surprises, No. 1-seeded Lompoc and No. 2-seeded Chaminade are headed for an epic Western Division championship game in two weeks.

Of course, Lompoc first must get past Gardena Serra at home and Chaminade also must defeat L.A. Cathedral in its semifinal.

But both teams continue to be a step above everyone else in the division.

Lompoc (12-0) had seven sacks in a road win over Culver City. Luciano Lopez, Maurice Kirby and Anthony Gonzalez each had two sacks for the Braves.

Chaminade (11-1) has scored 62, 64 and 61 points in its last three games. Terrell Newby has reached 102 career touchdows, including 42 this season.

The most important development could be which team wins the coin flip to host the championship game.
