Without playing a game, Valencia High football moved closer to the top of the CIF-Southern Section Division 2 rankings.

The Vikings came in at No. 2 on Monday, up two spots from last week when they fell in line behind Edison of Huntington Beach, Oaks Christian of Westlake Village and Norco.

This week only Edison eluded Valencia after Norco lost 35-21 to Servite of Anaheim last Friday, and Oaks Christian lost 47-10 to Chaminade of West Hills.

Oaks Christian plays Edison on Friday.

The Vikings will open their regular season at Palmdale on Friday. Saugus, which beat Santa Barbara 25-21 on Saturday, will be at Camarillo.

The Centurions held on to the No. 1 spot in Division 6 for the second straight week. Golden Valley, which opened with a 30-0 win over Highland of Palmdale, stayed close behind at No. 3 in the division.

West Ranch opened with a commanding 55-7 win over Simi Valley behind LaRon Huff’s 179 yards rushing and three touchdowns.

Still, the Wildcats dropped two spots to No. 9 in Division 9. Simi Valley is unranked in Division 7.

In Division 3, Hart fell out of the rankings after not playing.

The Indians, previously ranked No. 8, open at College of the Canyons on Friday against Downey.
