GAME OF THE WEEK

Reseda Charter High is not taking the easy way out for its 2019 prep football season opener. The Regents are traveling to Los Angeles to face traditional City Section power Crenshaw High on Friday, Aug. 23.

But the Regents, now snugly settled in City’s Division I, also need to face early tests like this on the road because of the potential playoff pairings that come in November.

Reseda hopes to improve on last season’s 10-2 mark that included reaching the Division I quarterfinals. The season ended with a loss to San Pedro High.

The Cougars are hoping to bounce back from last year’s 5-7 season. Crenshaw also reached the Division I quarterfinals, losing to Dorsey High of Los Angeles.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Crenshaw High School.
