Edison (12-0) vs. Lakewood (11-1)

Saturday, 7:30 p.m. at Orange Coast College

Outlook: In this one, you have the mighty Chargers on one side of the field. They are led by quarterback Matt Viles (182 of 299, 2,578 yards, 24 touchdowns and six interceptions) and his band of receivers, and Jordan Zumwalt and the crew on defense.

Edison defeated Long Beach Millikan (59-14) and Dana Hills (46-16) to advance to the semifinals.

On the other side of the field, there is Lakewood, the Moore League champs, led by USC-bound quarterback Jesse Scroggins.

The Lancers have defeated Newport Harbor (41-17) and Bishop Amat of La Puente (34-17).

Scroggins has completed 146 of 230 passes (63.5 percent) for 2,170 yards, 33 touchdowns and five interceptions.

The Lancers haven't lost since opening night.

The trio of Terrance Woods (612 yards), Rashad Wadood (604) and Alley Long (578) lead the ground game.

Both teams feature stingy defenses. Edison is allowing just 9.75 points a game, while opponents are scoring 9.25 points a night.

Can the Chargers slow Scroggins? Will the Lancers be able to stop Viles and Co.?
