Prep football games of the week


Burton at Galileo, 3 p.m.

The Pumas (0-1) had to cancel the final two games of their nonleague season due to limited numbers, but should be in game shape for their AAA opener against Galileo (2-1). The Lions pounded Burton in the opener last season 49-6.

Aragon at Capuchino

The Dons (3-0) are among five undefeated teams in the PAL Ocean Division and look to keep that going against the Mustangs (2-2). Aragon has yet to be seriously tested this season, scoring at least 34 points in all three of its victories. After an 0-2 start, Cap has rallied and outscored opponents 61-14 in its past two games.


St. Ignatius vs. Mitty at Foothill College, 7 p.m.

The Wildcats (2-1) and receiver Andrew Vollert open up the brutal WCAL season on the road against a Mitty (2-1) team that many thought would be down in 2011. After dropping a game to San Ramon Valley, the Monarchs stunned defending state champ Palo Alto to wrap up their nonleague schedule.



Balboa at Lincoln, 2 p.m.

After two encouraging games against Kennedy and Oakland Tech, the Bucs (1-2) suffered a 63-14 blowout loss on the road to Analy to end their nonleague slate. Despite a winless record, the Mustangs (0-3) have shown signs of improvement in each of their nonleague games.


Sacred Heart Cathedral vs. Bellarmine at Kezar, 2 p.m.

The Irish (3-0) may be undefeated, but they haven’t seen anything close to a team like Bellarmine yet this year. The Bells (2-1) are one of the best teams in the state and their only loss came in overtime to national power De La Salle in their opener. After the loss, Bellarmine has outscored opponents 92-15.
