1. Lompoc Braves (5-0)


NEXT GAME:?at Templeton (5-1), Friday, 7 p.m.

NOTES: The Braves come off a bye to face Templeton, a Los Padres League team that defeated Santa Barbara County teams Carpinteria (49-42), Pioneer Valley (17-13) ?and Santa Maria (54-7). Still, Lompoc should extend its streak.

2.?Dos Pueblos Chargers (4-2)

PREVIOUS GAME: San Juan Hills 27, ?Dos Pueblos 14

NEXT GAME:?at San Marcos (1-5), Friday, 7 p.m.

NOTES:?Dos Pueblos took its second long road trip of the season on Friday, falling to an undefeated Stallions team. DP’s two losses have come to teams (SJH, Lompoc) with a combined record of 11-0. The Chargers will get back into the win column in their Channel League opener on Friday at San Marcos.

3.?Santa Barbara Dons?(5-1)

PREVIOUS GAME:?Santa Barbara 31, Pacifica 5

NEXT GAME:?at Buena (3-3), Friday, 7 p.m.

NOTES:?The Dons pocketed an easy win on Friday against a Pacifica team that lost 18 players to suspension that afternoon. So maybe not a result to take much stock in. Nevertheless, the Dons have gone 5-1 against a respectable preseason schedule that included Atascadero (L), Centennial Bakersfield (W) and St. Joseph (W).

4.?St. Joseph Knights (4-1)

PREVIOUS GAME:??St. Joseph 38, Righetti 17

NEXT GAME:?vs. Arroyo Grande (4-1), Friday, 7 p.m.

NOTES: ?St. Joseph’s 21-point win over last week’s County No. 7 Righetti gives the Knights their fourth straight victory. The Knights would be higher in these rankings if not for a season-opening 3-point loss at Santa Barbara. Despite that early result, the Knights would make a strong case for No. 2 with a win this week against AG.

5.?Bishop Diego Cardinals (5-0)

PREVIOUS GAME:?Bishop Diego 13,?Santa Fe Christian 8

NEXT GAME:??at Carpinteria (4-2), at Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium, Friday, 7:30 p.m.

NOTES:??The Cardinals endured their toughest opponent this season on Friday, winning a low-scoring matchup with Santa Fe Christian. The No. 2 team in the Southern Section’s Northwest Division has another tough one coming up as the rival Carpinteria Warriors have won four straight.

6.?Carpinteria Warriors (4-2)

PREVIOUS GAME:?Carpinteria 27, Fillmore 0

NEXT GAME:?vs. Bishop Diego (5-0), at?Carpinteria Valley Memorial Stadium, Friday, 7:30 p.m.

NOTES:?The Warriors defense produced four more turnovers on Friday, totaling 20 takeaways during Carpinteria’s 4-game winning streak.

7.?Pioneer Valley Panthers (2-3)


NEXT GAME:?vs. San Luis Obispo (3-3), Friday, 7 p.m.

NOTES:?Pioneer Valley makes its first appearance in the SB County Super Seven, taking Righetti’s spot after the Warriors lost their second-straight Pac-7 game to fall to 1-5 overall. The Panthers have beaten Santa Maria and Nipomo easily this season. Two close losses to Templeton and Atascadero suggest PV belongs among SB County’s top seven.

DROPPED OUT: Righetti Warriors (1-5)

ON THE BUBBLE:? Righetti Warriors, Cabrillo Conquistadores
