Marquee matchup: Colony at Chino

For the third season in a row, Colony and Chino enter their meeting with perfect Mt. Baldy League records. Since Chino entered the league in 2010, the matchup between the Cowboys (6-2, 4-0) and Colony (6-3, 5-0) has determined the league champion each season. This year appears to be no different.

League of their own: Colony is the defending league champion after grinding out a 24-16 win over Chino last season on the way to a semifinal appearance in the CIF-SS Central Division playoffs. In 2010, it was Chino that emphatically won league with a 49-20 pasting of Colony. The two seem more evenly matched this season than the previous two years, creating plenty of intrigue for tonight’s matchup.

“When the same two teams square off every year for the league championship,” Colony coach Steve Randall said, “the rivalry develops itself.”
