Murrieta is home to two of the top-ranked teams in the CIF Southern Section Inland Division this year.
Undefeated Vista Murrieta takes the No. 1 spot as Coach Candaeles’s Broncos drive toward the CIF Playoffs.
Murrieta Valley Head Coach Gred Ireland’s Nighthawks are ranked ninth and also undefeated. They defeated a very tough Murrieta Mesa Rams team 33-30 Friday night. The Rams are ranked 20th in the division.
One thing is for sure for next week’s polls: one of these teams will not be undefeated.
Vista Murrieta will travel cross town to face the Nighthawks Friday night for the showdown of the two 7-0 teams.
