It's a rather light football schedule this week for Valley area teams. That doesn't mean there aren't any good games because Notre Dame vs. Chaminade certainly qualifies.
The Knights (4-1), whose only loss was the season opener against Gardena Serra on Aug. 24, are rebounding nicely from a subpar (for them) 6-4 season in 2011. The offense is pretty balanced – 168.3 yards passing and 126.3 yards rushing per game. But Notre Dame also as a legitimate game-breaker in senior running back Khalfani Muhammad who has the speed to score from anywhere on the field.
Chaminade (3-1) prefers to run and run and run, averaging 218 yards per game.
Running back Terrell Newby, a senior, is the primary hammer with 690 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. The weakness of a heavy dependence on the running game is it's not a good come-from-behind offense, as Westlake Village Oaks Christian proved in handing the Eagles their lone defeat on Sept. 14.
The kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Notre Dame.
