By Ray Hamill — There is no change at the top of this week’s Power Rankings, but there might be next week depending on how the game of the weekend goes down.
On Friday night, No. 1 Del Norte will host No. 2 St. Bernard’s in Crescent City in a game that will essentially decide the conference title.
If the Warriors win, they will move two wins ahead of the chasing pack with two games remaining and will be crowned co-champs at worst.
If the Crusaders win, however, then they will move into a tie with the Warriors atop the conference with two weeks remaining.
Both teams are coming off impressive road victories this past weekend, with SB winning at Fortuna and Del Norte winning at Eureka.
Fortuna, meanwhile, remains at No. 3 in this week’s Power Rankings, while Eureka stays put at No. 4 and Arcata at No. 5.
The Huskies and Loggers will meet on Friday night.
1 — Del Norte (3-0, 5-1)
Five straight wins for the Warriors, who are finding ways to win close games
2 — St. Bernard’s (2-1, 4-3)
The Crusaders have knocked off much bigger schools in back-to-back weeks
3 — Fortuna (1-2, 4-3)
It’s difficult to know what to expect week to week from the Huskies, but they have been fun to watch
4 — Eureka (0-3, 1-5)
The season hasn’t quite taken off yet for the Loggers, and they’re running out of time
5 — Arcata (3-0, 5-2)
The Tigers are the most entertaining team in the H-DNL this season
