Servite has opponents secured for four of its five nonleague games for 2013. The Friars have tried to get an Orange County team to fill that opening, but with no success. El Toro is among the teams that turned down a Servite invitation to play in ’13.
Scheduling games against out-of-area teams can be tricky, with finding mutual open dates the primary challenge.
With winter vacation dates approaching, it is likely that finalizing a Servite-De La Salle game will not occur until January if it happens at all. And usually these arrangements are two-year, home-and-home contracts, meaning one team is the home team one season and the other team is the home team the following season.
De La Salle defeated Servite, 48-8, in the 2010 CIF State Championships Bowl Games.
De La Salle on Saturday won its fifth CIF State football championship with a 48-28 victory over Centennial of Corona in the Open Division game at Home Depot Center in Carson. De La Salle’s many football accomplishments include a national-record 151-game winning streak from 1992-2004.
Servite in 2012 had its worst season in many years, finishing 3-7.
