Final thoughts on Colony/Kaiser

Sometimes, I cover a game, and it’s so entertaining a game that there’s more I want to get to than I can possibly mention in a story. Such was the Kaiser/Colony football game on Friday, won by Colony 23-19.

Some thoughts:

  • Each team scored 3 touchdowns and there were no other scores. Kaiser had its first PAT blocked, went for 2 on the second and failed, then kicked the third. Colony kicked the first, then went for 2 and made it on the second and third touchdowns.
  • The math wouldn’t indicate it, but Colony made the right move going for 2 on its final touchdown. Usually, you go for 2 late in a game when a TD puts you up 1, 4 or 5, but in this case, it put the Titans up 21-19. Going for 2 had more to do with Kaiser. Kaiser had attempted just one FG all year, and missed it. So going up 3 would’ve meant little in this game. But going up 4 would’ve been helpful because if Kaiser came back to score a TD and kicked an XP, Colony could’ve tied with a FG.
  • Kaiser’s drives ended with: Downs, lost fumble, TD, TD, halftime, punt, TD, downs/INT. Just one punt for the Cats. Kaiser ran more plays on its first drive 19 than Colony had in the first half (12). Colony had 3 drives end after just 1 play: 2 TDs, and one lost a fumble. Kaiser had six drives end in Colony territory.
  • On Kaiser’s opening drive, they appeared to be getting a first-and-goal at the Colony 9 as Colony was being called for pass interference on fourth-and-15 at the 19. But Kaiser also got a penalty for illegal man downfield. The down was replayed on the offsetting fouls and Kaiser failed to convert the 4th-and-15  the second time.

Claremont volleyball team gets match-up with No. 1 foe

Claremont High School volleyball coach Mark Mina went into the season thinking his team had the potential to win the Palomares League. Well that didn’t happen, a key factor being the absence of top player Emilee Rohrer who was out with a knee injury.

The team settled for a third-place finish behind Glendora and Bonita.

But the Wolfpack (17-11) have Rohrer, a USC commit, back and they have notched a couple of impressive playoff wins over Apple Valley (3-0) and Palm Desert (3-1).

The task gets a little tougher as the Wolfpack gets top-ranked Louisville in a Division 2A quarterfinal at 7 p.m. on Saturday.

“It was nice to get a couple of playoff wins because we were disappointed with third,” Mina said. “It took awhile but we started coming together.”

Mina credited some of his other players for picking up the slack with Rohrer out including another sophomore Kylie Robinson. He also singled out junior Simone Bliss.

Mina said Rohrer looks back to her usual self on the offensive end. She had been playing all the way around but he will use her only in the front row and when she is back to serve.

“Defense is one of those things you have to play as a cohesive unit and move together,” the coach said. “It might be more disruptive to try and put her back there now. And this way she is also just focused on hitting.”

The winner of this match advances to meet the winner of the quarterfinal between Glendora and Notre Dame Academy.

Bonita football team should be at full strength for playoffs

The Bonita High School football team should be at full strength when it takes the field for a first round Central Division playoff game against Don Lugo on Friday.

Senior quarterback Tanner East left last weeks game against Ayala after taking a hard hit in the third quarter. Beacats coach Adrian Medrano said East, who has thrown for 1,991 yards and 21 touchdowns, is expected to play this week and could have gone back in the game if the outcome were in doubt.

Medrano chose to keep the player out with his team comfortably in front.

In addition wide receiver B.J. McLaurin is also expected to play. He has been slowed by a strained groin and did not play last week.

Bonita (8-2), the second place team out of the Palomares League, and Don Lugo (5-5), the second-place finisher in the Mt. Baldy League, will square off at 7 p.m. on Friday.

Shelby Kraft of Los Osos chooses San Diego State too

Los Osos High School water polo standout Shelby Kraft is headed to San Diego State.

The reigning Most Valuable Player in the Baseline League declared her intention only a few days after Grizzlies teammate Delaney Parks did the same.


She says it is a nice coincidence. The two didn’t always plan to go to the same school, this one just happened to be that high on both their lists.

“It really was one of my top schools all along,” she said. “A lot of it had to do with academics. It has the program I want and a post-graduate too so i can stay at the same school.”

Kraft is looking to pursue a career as a registered dietician.

San Diego State is one of seven schools Kraft visited, five of which are Division I. That quintet included Long Beach State, San Jose State, Indiana, and Arizona State. She made the trip to Long Beach with Parks..

Kraft, also the Daily Bulletin Player of the Year, also liked what the water polo program had to offer so it was the best of both worlds.

“I really liked the coaches,” she said, “Of course San Diego is nice too so I liked everything about it.”
