Culver City High School’s 3-0 football team will be looking into the eye of the calm before the storm situation when they face University High on Friday evening at 7 inside Jerry Chabola Stadium.
Uni, 2-2, is not known for fielding competitive football teams.
The storm will come later.
After Uni, the Centaurs play four consecutive tough games:
- Friday, Sept. 29, at Dorsey, at 7.
- Friday, Oct. 6, at El Segundo, at 7.
- Friday, Oct. 13, home against Lawndale, at 7.
- Friday, Oct. 20, home against Hawthorne, at 7.
The Centaurs, who walloped North Torrance 42-7 last week, have scored more than 40 points in all three of their wins to tighten their No. 1 ranking in CIF Division 11.
“It’s still early,” said Coach Jahmal Wright. “But we are playing with a lot of confidence — and we have a lot of experience.”
The Centaurs have not yet been challenged.
Although Culver City is unbeaten, some areas require improvement.
“We need to be more consistent at all positions,” said Coach Wright.
He quickly turned to how pleased with the way the defense played last week in holding North Torrance to one touchdown.
