Eagles vault over Mission Hills with win over Grizzlies.

Quarterback Sebastian Tengan launches a pass for San Pasqual.

The San Pasqual High football reached new heights this week, ascending to No. 1 in the county for the first time school history.

The Eagles (7-0) and Mission Hills (6-1) traded places in the poll after San Pasqual upset the Grizzlies last Friday 13-10 in two overtimes.

"That win meant everything," said San Pasqual quarterback Sebastian Tengan. "We had the opportunity and we grasped it.

"That's what's so rewarding."

San Pasqual got 26 of the 31 first-place votes among the pollsters. Cathedral Catholic (6-1), which is fifth in the poll, got three first-place votes while No. 3 Eastlake (6-1) received two.

"San Pasqual has never been ranked No. 1, and I'm so glad this team - the Class of 2014 - was able to give it to them," said Cameron Miller, who kicked a pair of field goals in overtime.

"This team believes in each other."

Mount Miguel (6-2) moved up a place in the poll to ninth.

St. Augustine (5-2) is the new No. 10 team.

Seven teams received votes outside of the Top 10 - Grossmont (6-1), La Costa canyon (5-2), Torrey Pines (5-2), El Capitan (6-1), Imperial (7-0), Carlsbad (5-2) and Rancho Buena Vista (5-2). None have more than two losses.

San Pasqual is at Rancho Buena Vista on Friday. RBV plays Mission Hills next week.

Cathedral Catholic hosts St. Augustine on Friday in the Holy Bowl while No. 4 Oceanside is at No. 6 Ramona.
