Chase Garbers and Corona del Mar cannot be stopped, while Je’Quari Godfrey had a great game for Bishop O’Dowd.

NCAA Football: Oregon at California Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Taariq Johnson & Jeremiah Hawkins: WR & ATH, Buena Park Coyotes (Buena Park, CA)

Buena Park’s great season continued as they beat La Habra 27-13 to improve to 7-1.

Johnson had one rush for six yards and one catch for nine yards. He also notched one tackle. Hawkins had just one touch for four yards.

This is the Coyotes’ third consecutive victory.

Chase Garbers: QB, Corona del Mar Sea Kings (Newport Beach, CA)

The Sea Kings are on fire right now as they beat University 47-7 to improve to 7-1 this season. The Sea Kings have won seven consecutive games.

Garbers is unstoppable at the moment as he completed 15 of 22 passes for 315 yards, five touchdowns and one interception. He also rushed 10 times for 92 yards.

The Los Angeles Times has a story on just how great Garbers has been playing this season:

Corona del Mar High's football team could draw a sellout, and it would still be a wonder as to why more people aren't inside the stadium.

That is how entertaining it is to watch quarterback Chase Garbers go to work.

The maestro was at it again on Thursday night, delivering a symphonic performance in the Sea Kings' 47-7 rout of University in a Pacific Coast League game at Jim Scott Stadium.

Garbers threw for 314 yards and five touchdowns. The dual-threat senior added 92 rushing yards on 10 carries.

Even when his receivers were blanketed, Garbers had the answer. He converted a fourth-and-1 with his legs in the first quarter to set up a red-zone score.

Later, the Cal-bound quarterback worked his magic to get out of third-and-28 situation. University respected the arm of Garbers, playing a prevent defense. The senior made one man miss before scampering across midfield for a 31-yard gain.

"It's so understated, his ability to run the ball," O'Shea said of Garbers. "He bails us out of most bad yardage situations with his feet. He can run with anybody, and he does it with such good instincts."

Michael Onyemaobi: ATH, Chaparral Pumas (Temecula, CA)

The beat goes on for Bishop Gorman as they battered Desert Oasis 71-0 to improve to 9-0. They have not lost a game against an in-state opponent since 2008.

Walsh contributed eight rushes for 55 yards and one touchdown. He added one reception for 20 yards.

Tyriq Hardimon: DB, Lassiter Trojans (Marietta, GA)

Hardimon and the Trojans defense locked down Walton 13-7 to improve to 6-2 and snap a two-game losing streak.

Hardimon snatches an interception in this highlight video.

Marquese Taylor: ATH, Lovejoy Wildcats (Lovejoy, GA)

The Wildcats took down M.L. King 20-6 to improve to 5-4. This is their fourth victory in their last five games.
