If the schools go 5-0 in league play, Oak Park will receive the league’s No. 1 seed to the playoffs, based on the “Rose Bowl rule,” which rewards the school that has not been the top seed for the longest period of time. Oaks Christian was the league’s No. 1 seed last season. “I don’t care about who gets the No. 1 seed,” Oaks Christian coach Bill Redell said. “What I care about is making the playoffs.” Oaks Christian has won the past three meetings, including the past two Div. XI championship games. If they share the league title, they would be in position to meet in the division final. Erik Boal, (818) 713-3607 The game originally was scheduled for Sept. 30 but postponed because of the Topanga Fire. Oaks Christian sought to reschedule the game for Oct. 1, 3 or 4, but Oak Park assistant principal Larry Boone and co-coach Dick Billingsley, unwilling to play three games in nine days, cited safety concerns when they declined. Oaks Christian brought a motion forward Tuesday to force Oak Park to play or forfeit the game, but it had little support.
