San Francisco prep football previews

Friday’s games

Redwood (Larkspur) at Lowell, 3:30 p.m.
After a 69-13 dismantling at the hands of Paradise in their opener, the Cardinals will again be underdogs hosting a 1-1 Redwood team.

Burton at De Anza (Richmond), 7 p.m.
After two losses away from home, the Pumas hit the road again and will have a good opportunity to collect their first win against De Anza. The Dons are also 0-2, losing by a combined 82-6 this season, and have lost 21 consecutive games.

St. Ignatius at Bishop O’Dowd (Oakland), 7 p.m.
The Wildcats opened with one of the toughest schedules in the first two weeks, but should get a minor reprieve in Bishop O’Dowd, who they beat 44-2 last season. The Dragons are 1-0, however, and appeared improved in a 59-10 win over Alameda on Saturday.

Washington at Oakland, 7 p.m.
The Eagles and Wildcats will be arguably the most balanced matchup of the week. Both teams are winless, but Washington will look to make an improvement on last week’s 21-14 loss to El Camino.

Marshall at Santa Clara, 7:30 p.m.
Marshall struggled against Richmond in its first game and should face another test against Santa Clara. After finishing 1-9 last year, Santa Clara played South San Francisco tough in a 13-12 loss in the opening week.

Saturday’s games

Stuart Hall vs. Trinity Christian (Monterey) at Treasure Island, 1 p.m.
The Knights will try and work out the kinks from their opening 52-2 loss to Crystal Springs Uplands and appear to have a better shot against Trinity, which went 1-7 last season.

Moreau Catholic at Galileo, 1:30 p.m.
Galileo and running back Quincy Nelson will undoubtedly rack up the offense, but whether the Lions’ defensive unit, which struggled against Sequoia last week, can stop Moreau Catholic will be the key.

Analy (Sebastopol) at Balboa, 2 p.m.
The Bucs will host their first home game after two unsuccessful trips to the East Bay, but it will be a considerable upset if they overtake the visiting Tigers.

Lincoln at El Camino, 2 p.m.
The Mustangs have showed their youth in their two blowout losses against San Marin and Tamalpais and will face a run-heavy El Camino attack that beat Washington 21-14 last week.

Mission at Drake (San Anselmo), 2 p.m.
If Mission continues to improve on its first two losses, they could have a shot at taking down the Pirates.

Inderkum (Sacramento) at Riordan, 3 p.m.
Riordan’s struggling defense will likely continue against Inderkum, which went 13-0 last season before falling to Del Campo in the CIF-Sac-San Joaquin Section Division III title game.
