			High school football: Bay Area games to watch this weekend

***If games are canceled, postponed or moved because of smoke from the North Bay fires, we will update them below***

Friday

No. 11 McClymonds (6-0, 1-0) vs. Fremont-Oakland (6-0, 1-0) at Curt Flood Field, 1 p.m.: McClymonds has not lost an Oakland Athletic League game since 2009. It will put its 36-game league winning streak on the line against an undefeated opponent with visions of taking down the champs. Both teams are 6-0, but McClymonds has much more big-game experience, given that it won regional and state championships last season.

No. 6 Serra (4-2, 3-0) at No. 5 St. Francis (4-2, 2-1), 7 p.m.: A Serra victory ends St. Francis’ quest for a piece of its third consecutive West Catholic Athletic League championship. If Serra loses, it will still have a chance to claim a piece of the league crown when it plays host to Valley Christian on Oct. 28. Serra beat St. Francis twice last season, a 41-40 nail-biter at home in the regular season and 31-17 at St. Francis in the semifinals of the Central Coast Section playoffs. St. Francis’ losses this season were to the Nos. 1 and 2 teams in the Bay Area News Group Top 20, De La Salle and Valley Christian. Serra lost to St. Mary’s-Stockton and the No. 3 team in the BANG Top 20, Pittsburg.

No. 8 Freedom (5-1, 0-1) at No. 13 Antioch (5-1, 1-0), 7 p.m.: Freedom will be looking to bounce back after losing to Pittsburg 47-33 in a Bay Valley Athletic League opener and keep its North Coast Section Open Division hopes alive. Antioch had an impressive win over Heritage in its BVAL opener, but could use a good performance against Freedom to show that its one-sided loss against Clayton Valley was an aberration. Antioch has lost six of its past seven against Freedom.

Miramonte (5-1, 0-1) at No. 18 Campolindo (4-2, 1-0), 7 p.m.: Campolindo has won six in a row against its rival from Orinda, including 37-25 last season, 37-0 in 2015, 49-12 in 2014 and 38-10 in 2013. Miramonte opened this season with five consecutive wins before stumbling last week against the Diablo Athletic League Foothill Division’s defending champion, Clayton Valley. Campolindo has won two in a row since losing to Rancho Cotate 33-28 in mid-September.

No. 15 Aragon (6-0, 2-0) at Menlo-Atherton (4-2, 2-0), 7:30 p.m.: Aragon has put together an impressive resume through six games, including wins over Aptos to open the season and last week over Terra Nova. But Menlo-Atherton is the reigning champion in the Peninsula Athletic League’s Bay Division and has won four in a row since losing to Bellarmine College Prep and Archbishop Mitty in the season’s first two weeks. M-A has won three in a row over Aragon, including 48-35 last year.

No. 1 De La Salle (6-1) at No. 17 Foothill (4-2), 7 p.m.: De La Salle has won three straight games since its lone loss this season, Sept. 16 at Bishop Gorman-Las Vegas, and is a heavy favorite in this one. Foothill has won four in a row since opening the season with losses to San Leandro and San Ramon Valley. It hasn’t scored a point in its past two games against De La Salle, losing 35-0 last season and 35-0 in 2015.
