#1 Mission Hills (9-3) vs. #3 Mater Dei Catholic (8-4)

Mission Hills, the top finishers, have quietly flown under the radar in the second half of the season as they head towards their first CIF title since the inaugural Open Division Championship in 2013. In their seven games since September’s bye week, the Grizzlies are conceding fewer than seven points per game and have exceeded 28 points in five of those seven games. They started the playoffs with a 42-0 shutout against St. Augustine and last week defended their home field with a 28-21 win over rivals El Camino.
