A look at some of Southland’s best football matches this week

Here are some of the best Southland High School Football games this week:

Friday matches

Gardena Serra against. Orange Lutheran at Orange Coast College, 7 p.m. Last seen on a football field, Orange Lutheran gave up 435 rushing yards and seven touchdowns to Cathedral Catholic’s Lucky Sutton in a playoff game. Serra has a similar rushing attack, led by Cincere Rhaney and Kai Honda. The Lancers are entering a new quarterback and will need their offensive and defensive lines to make an impact. The choice: Serra.

Granada Hills to Arleta, 3:30 p.m. The Highlanders’ double-wing attack has the speedy Dijon Stanley healthy and ready to race in his senior year. Engaged in Utah, Stanley should be able to put on a show. But Arleta has its own offensive firepower, led by quarterback Kennedy Duran, so it will be an entertaining opening day for the city section. The pick: Granada Hills.
