Friday Night Aftermath: Monrovia explodes, 43-7; St. Francis and San Gabriel can’t hang on; Muir still alive.

CLICK HERE FOR A PHOTO GALLERY OF THE LA CAADA-MONROVIA GAME

Monrovia 43, La Caada 7 — The Nick Bueno Show officially kicked into third gear Friday night. That much was evident after Bueno rushed for 208 yards on the ground and scored on runs of 17, 81 and 23 yards. He also completed 10 of 14 passes for 157 yards and two touchdowns (who said the kid can’t throw?). Bueno almost single-handedly shredded the Spartans defense, completing two 40-yard touchdown passes to Grant Haggard and Jordan Trujillo. “We knew (Bueno) could throw,” Monrovia coach Ryan Maddox said, “and to be quite honest, our receivers finally stepped up and caught some balls. There’s no question in Nick’s ability to throw.” La Caada (4-4, 2-2) hurt itself with penalties and turnovers, and it didn’t help that quarterback Rocky Moore established little, if any, rhythm. He was intercepted by Monrovia’s Derrin Jenkins and Evan Sanchez. Moore also couldn’t withstand the constant pressure in the pocket — Monrovia’s Haggard, Ellis McCarthy, John Adams and Josh Lowden each recorded a sack; McCarthy, a sophomore, now has seven this season. The victory, however, didn’t come without some level of concern. Monrovia sophomore De’Shawn Ramirez left early in the first quarter with a slight left ankle sprain. He iced it and retaped it in the second quarter but never returned. On that drive, running back Derrick Johnson capped a 10-play, 52-yard effort with a 3-yard run with 7:00 left in the first quarter to put the Wildcats on the scoreboard. Bueno ran for the 2-point conversion to give Monrovia an 8-0 lead. Later, Justin De La Nuez, a senior running back, left midway through the second quarter with an ankle sprain. He was taken to the hospital for X-rays. Now, here’s the million dollar question — with St. Francis losing and Monrovia winning big, are yall expecting a swap come Wednesday in the latest PSN rankings? I know they mean nothing, but hey, I gotta do ‘em. Shout out to our boys from the desert. The Paraclete coaching staff sat in the La Caada side, and I had a nice chat with ‘Clete coach Norm Dhalia at halftime. Gotta love the in-game updates from Desert Rat.

Alhambra 14, Bell Gardens 7 — Brandon Wilson led Alhambra on both sides of the ball — two key sacks and two long receptions and a second-effort rushing touchdown. Alhambra led 7-0 at the half. With the win, the Moors keep their playoff hopes alive and can clinch a spot against Keppel next week at Moor Field. Alhambra’s Vailele Peko was hurt in the second half and carried off the field. He was carried off the field.

Schurr 38, San Gabriel 30 — While the Montebello and Mark Keppel high school football teams hired new head coaches and Bell Gardens, San Gabriel and Alhambra welcomed back seasoned quarterbacks, Schurr made no such noise in the offseason. As the old axiom goes, though, sometimes it’s the quiet ones who are most dangerous. Schurr proved that again Friday night by claiming a share of its seventh consecutive Almont League title in defeating San Gabriel.

La Salle 45, Cantwell 35 — Mike Alexander exploded in a good way, scoring four touchdowns and 387 all-purpose yards. The Lancers keep their playoff hopes alive with the win. They’ll close out the season next week at Bosco Tech. I have the Lancers playing at 2 p.m. on Friday afternoon. If that’s wrong, someone please e-mail yours truly. Our thoughts and prayers go out La Salle senior Mark Danhausen, who’s father passed away Friday morning. Danhausen converted a 35-yard field goal, converted six PAT’s and no kickoffs were returned.

Arcadia 42, Hoover 28 – Facing a third-and-24 at their own 32-yard line with a 34-28 lead — full momentum for Hoover — Arcadia’s David Maldonado got a screen pass and ran it back 68 yards for the dagger with 2:20 left in the fourth quarter. Arcadia’s Garret Tuck and Taylor Lagace connected on touchdown passes of 23, 48 and 19 yards.

Temple City 35, South Pasadena 12 — Temple City’s David Spratt was the man. He scored three touchdowns to lead the Rams — two on the air and one punt return. Next week’s game is huge. A Temple City win, the Rams clinch a spot in the playoffs. A Temple City loss, oh boy, someone get me a Tylenol.

Muir 34, Glendale 7 — The Mustangs defense had three interceptions and two fumble recoveries and a blocked punt that was returned for a touchdown. Defensive ends Trayveion Yates and Michael White had a great game for Muir, holding Glendale to 180 yards on the ground. With the win, Muir keeps its playoff hopes alive and must beat Pasadena at next week’s Turkey Tussle. I’m going on the record — PHS wins.

Alemany 13, St. Francis 7 — One year after transferring from St. Francis to Alemany, defensive back Deron Smith faced his former teammates Friday and came through with the performance of a lifetime. The sophomore intercepted two passes and broke up another key fourth-down pass, all in the second half, to help Alemany to the win and at least a share of the Mission League championship with one game remaining.

Workman 23, Duarte 0 — Workman High School held winless Duarte to 110 total yards in cruising to a Montview League win on Friday. The Lobos (6-3, 3-2) were led by senior quarterback Richard Cabreros, who completed 4 of his 7 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown. Workman jumped out to a 6-0 lead when Michael Silva scored from a yard out. The score capped off a nine-play, 38-yard drive. After a Duarte turnover on downs, the Lobos drove 50 yards and scored on a quarterback sneak from Cabreros. The score pushed the lead to 13-0 early in the second quarter.

Rosemead 52, El Monte 20 — The Rosemead duo of Matt Macias and Matt Fregoso put on a show in the Panthers’ easy win. The Panthers (4-5, 3-1) used 35 second-quarter points to pull away from the Lions (0-9, 0-4) and take a 42-14 halftime lead. Fregoso finished the game with touchdown runs of 10, 51, 64, and 32. He also had a 78-yard punt return in the second quarter to give Rosemead a comfortable 28-7 lead.

Maranatha 49, Marshall 0 — Maranatha quarterback Cody Keith threw for 175 yards and running back Erik Johnson rushed for 200 to lead the Minutemen in Alpha League action Friday night at Pasadena High School. Maranatha (7-2, 6-0) will play for an outright league championship next week when it hosts Campbell Hall. The Minutemen last season finished in second place and have not won an outright league title in 23 years. Maranatha shared the league title in 2006. Maranatha’s Ben Young led the defense with two interceptions. Minutemen coach Joel Murphy has been pleased with his team’s balanced attack. “What’s nice is the last month or so we’ve been incredibly balanced,” Murphy said, whose team is on a seven-game winning streak. “We’re not just proficient but we can excel at it, too.”

San Marino 51, Blair 0 — Stevie Yortsos lined up in the backfield at tailback and proved to be just as effective as he is at receiving by scoring three touchdowns on the ground to lead San Marino High School to a 51-0 win over winless Blair (0-9, 0-4) in Friday’s Rio Hondo League game. The Titans (7-2, 2-2) led, 35-0, at the half. The game was played with a running clock in the second half. Everyone got a piece of the action for San Marino, including linebacker Trent Converse, who returned a fumble for a score. The win helped the Titans keep their playoff hopes alive as they head into next week’s must-win game against visiting Temple City. But as far as San Marino coach D.R. Moreland is concerned, the postseason already began. “The playoffs started Friday night,” Moreland said. “That’s the position we find ourselves in and starting tomorrow we have to prepare for Temple City.” San Marino will have to deal with an explosive offense led by Rams running back Max Ruckle and quarterback Justin Smith. “Temple City’s both sides of the ball will be a challenge for us,” Moreland said. “We’re going to have to play one of our better games next week, that’s for sure.”

    LA CANADA FANS
    with the hellacious late summer fires and devastation that ravaged parts of your community – you all should come out and support the La Canada Spartans football team tonight. Be in the crowd tonight, make noise tonight, for your underdog team who will be challenging the Mid Valley Divison’s top rated team. These kids were forced to miss their first game and had to cancel and adjust practices just to be CIF-worthy to participate this season. Their new head coach deserves some vocal support, something to drown out the 18 wheelers and helicopter lift-offs that roar behind the home field stands.
    Likely that M-towns loyal supporters will be aplenty on the visitor side. Get there early on this one, 210 E/W merge is a bad dog on a Friday night. Buckle up and veer right!

  • I Second that…..

    I second Goldearm’s post. But most of all, try getting there on-time for once. You should be ashamed of your Dodger fan antics….showing up late in the second quarter. Your team needs you and they deserve your support from the first whistle.

  • http://www.insidesocal.com/paspreps/2009/11/friday-night-pregame-la-canada.html paul

    1)SG needs to run the ball with Brown and Amaro to win this game, no trickery just straight ahead in your mouth football,2) SG will win, because miguel picked schurr to win, lol

  • Goldenarm

    I would love to see our senior “hardcore for 4″ players have a big homecoming night game tonight.
    Kids like Drew Tinsley, O’Mall, Lumary, Sutton, Stransky, Steven Fei and of course, Max Ruckle. I probably forgot some guys…I apologize in advance.

    Bottom line – a must win game for Temple City against a real hungry opponent with nothing to lose.

    If the homecoming queen runs a 4.5…put her back on kickoff!

  • BigFatFan

    Goldenarm: I can assure you that SP sees this game against TC as a “must win” game also. we are still in the hunt. the boys are adopting a playoff mentality, win every game or go home!! should be a good match up tonight.

  • Weownit

    LC is going to bash MTOWN. 35-20.

  • Desert Rat

    Rovia up 15-0 on Bueno run as the 1st Qrtr comes to an end.

  • Desert Rat

    Spartans can’t keep up…Rovia makes it 22-0…8mins left until half.

  • sfhs92

    SF up early 7-0.

    Sparta finally answers….22-7 with just under 5 to go.

    Sorry posts are coming up together….system is slow.

  • Desert Rat

    Bueno intercepted at the 50 with just over two mins left…but LC can’t do anything with it. 22-7 at the half.

  • Desert Rat

    After a little back-and-forth Bueno scrambles 81yds and the Cats push ahead 29-7.

    Wut up Miguel…Spiritxpress is dissapointed you didn’t go stride for stride with Nick on that last run.

  • SF man

    St Francis update?

  • Desert Rat

    Bueno air mails another one…Cat power in full effect, 36-7. Sparta playing for pride. Like their fight. LC just doesn’t have the skill to match Rovia.

  • Desert Rat

    Maddox lettin the boys pad their stats…Bueno busts a 30-plus run and LC is on life support…43-7

  • Tom S

    Maranatha over Marshall with four minutes left in the game when I left, 49 to 0. Running clock the entire 2nd half. I only counted 16 players suited up for Marshall. Very sad situation. Maybe Marshall should give up football.

  • sfhs89

    Saint Francis lost 13-7 tonight.

  • High School Sport

    Marshall should play 8 man football , but there terrible AD thinks other wise, only 16 players and not being able to compete on a consistent basis.1 win in 4 years,that school is in fantasy land. CANNOT COMPETE IN 11 MAN FOOTBALL.The school should really consider in not having fotball unless it can make serious changes in the athletic department.

    Homecoming at La Salle.

    La Salle 45, Cantwell 35

    It was the Mike Alexander show. Almost 300 yards rushing, a 94 yard kick off return, 4 touchdowns, about six tackles, and I think he also caught a pass.

    A one man highlight show.

  • spirit Xpress

    congrats monrovia

    es muy “bueno” he is a stud

  • TCMOM

    Well done David Spratt. You look like you are truly enjoying your senior year. Thank you for givng it your all every week.

  • Ballcap

    Second the props from goteamgo for Mike Alexander. He was a one man highlight reel tonight.

  • TigerFan

    South Pasadena handed the game over to the rams on a sliver platter. Penalties, blown coverages, and special team lack of cooperation were all things SP did to ensure the loss.
    Final score: TC-35 SP-12
    congratulations to the homecoming team.

  • LSHS

    Just woke up…

    What a game, Mike Alexander without a doubt has to be the player of the week…Miguel I think he may have had way more than 387 all purpose yards, honestly (could be wrong) my guess would be closer to 500. Someone said on the way out that he had 391 yards rushing. Also returned a kickoff. It really is so much fun watching this kid play. The kid really took this game over and won it on pure will. Its funny you know who his Family is, and that crowd just keeps getting bigger. Fun to watch them celebrate for him.
    On another note, I have watched/coached football for more than 25 years. I have never seen an individual performance like tonight. In all seriousness the kid had close to 500 all purpose yards, I think. Thats just offense, on defense he probably had at least 10 tackles, 3 or 4 of which were probably touchdown saving tackles. I mean the kid performed, on the highest stage he could. That is with playoffs on the line.
    Miguel you have been really good to La Salle this season. Thank You. Please come and see this kid play at Bosco Tech next Friday at 1:30 pm. You will not regret it. Ohhh and please get him in the top ten players. GOOOO LANCERS!!!

    Miguel Sorry about the triple post. My bad.

  • MVF

    Desert Rat, ran into some of your boys at the SD/NV game with video cam in hand. How do you think SD matches up with Clete?

  • GrimReaperxxx

    Time to get excited about the 3 way coin flip for 2nd in the RHL.
    Like I said that is Friday Night Lights real excitement!

  • Tom S

    Miguel:
    Correction and update to your Maranatha article. Campbell Hall lost to Sierra Canyon last night 15 to 14 so next weeks game still gives the Minutemen the outright league title with a win and tie for 1st place if they lose. A huge game for Maranatha as Im sure the winner will be second seed in the playoffs and might set up a championship rematch with St. Margarets, but lets not get ahead of ourselves.

  • PROUD MONROVIA HS ALUMNI

    SO IT LOOKS LIKE THEIR IS NO DOUBTS NOW WHO IS THE NUMBER ONE TEAM IN THE AREA MONROVIA IS UNSTOPPABLE AND THEY ARE THE FAVORITES TO WIN THE MID-VALLEY DIVISION THIS YEAR WITHOUT A DOUBT I CANT WAIT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS IN CIF HOPEFULLY THE CATS CAN PULL IT THROUGH FOR ALL THE MONROVIANS GO WILDCATS!!!!!

  • DANOCATFANO

    TO ALL THE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO THINK BUENO CANT THROW, NOW YOU CAN CHOKE ON YOUR WORDS.BUENO IS ONE HELL OF A PLAYER.AND THE WILDCATS TEAM, COACHING STAFF ONE HELL OF A JOB THIS YEAR.FIGHT ON CATS BRING HOME THE CIF CHAMPIONSHIP TROPHY TO MTOWN.LOVE THOSE CATS.

  • JJIMENEZ

    After graduating a class of talented & experienced seniors, replacing those seniors with not so experienced kids, early season injuries to key players, kids talking the talk but not walking the walk & a kid(s) quitting oh his team…It looks like the Mead has finally found its identity…(then again it was ElMo)

    !!!FEAR THE MEAD!!!WAR PANTHERS!!!

  • goteamgo

    Looks like some stats are in Max Preps, and if Mike Alexander of La Salle is not player of the week, then I do not know who is:

    293 yards rushing on 12 carries (TD runs for 66,64, and 57 yds)
    96 yd kickoff return for TD
    16 yard punt return
    8 yard pass reception
    10 tackles
    413 all purpose yards

    Also, thanks for the condolences for Mark Danhausen and his family, whose father passed away the morning of the game, which was homecoming and senior night. Mark played, and was 6 for 6 on PAT’s , had a FG of 35 yards, of his 8 kickoffs, 6 were touchbacks , and he averaged almost 43 yards on three punts.

    It was an emotional night, and a win the Lancers needed to keep their playoff hopes alive. The “road trip from hell” against Monrovia, TC, and Verbum Dei left them bruised and battered and probably shook their confidence, so a win was sorely needed.

  • Are you serious

    La Canada is horribly coached and made you guys look better than you really are. Cats are playing like they’ve already earned a spot in the championship. Kids are slow and lethargic. You guys already peaked.

    Buena is an okay passer…better runner. You’re gonna get upset in the playoffs. Mark my words.

  • Observantcat

    Are you serious:

    I hope to see you at all of Monrovia’s playoff games. You will need to figure out if the opposing coaches make the Cats look better than they really are or are we just that good. To win 43-7 without our top two running backs just makes your coaching staff that much more incompetent. When DeShawn & De La Nuez get healthy in 2 weeks you will see a whole new Dimension of Fast, Faster & Fastest. I will reserve you a seat in the Hater section. You will also receive a free baby bib.

  • New York

    La Canada must be a pop warner team if a slow and lethargic Monrovia just blew them out.

    I wish Monrovia were in a tougher league. It is challenging to manufacture a sense of urgency every week. I’ll give it a shot: Blair sneaked up and tied us in 1996. That was the only blemish on Monrovia’s RHL record from 1996-2000.

  • Goldenarm

    La Salle,
    congtatulations on a sweet victory!
    Going off memory I believe you have Bosco and Verbum Dei ahead, so your road does not look to be one without a heap of challenge

    M-town-
    A couple weeks back I blabbered that M-town has YET to play their best football. Though this may still be true, it appears the Cats are sharpening their claws getting ready to play their best football at least. As Maddox has stated several times – theirs is an offense predicated on what the defense gives you. If Bueno rolls out, is not pressured or sees open acreage ahead…he turns it on. If downfield receivers are left free…there lies another option. Defending against any and all takes a disciplined, yet sometimes risk taking defense, one without individual player weakness….tough to find.
    The Clete is ramping up the scouting once again, all over SD/NV and of course, M-town. No doubt this Friday at TC/SM among other locations.
    Just as an example of scout info / turned action -this is why last year Paraclete put 11 players on the line (no punt returner)nearly every time we punted….they were sure they could block the punt or knew we had experienced bad long snaps now and then. No punts were blocked – in fact the strategy had no benefit for the spirits. Other strategies did however.

  • Desert Rat

    Rovia is a good team. You have to give them credit, they did what they needed to do against a weaker opponent. I was hoping for a bigger fight from Sparta, but they did what they could with what they had.

    MVF:

    I haven’t had the chance to look at Dimas’ film. But what I’ve been told from the coaches, it would be a make for a good match-up.

  • BigFatFan

    SP effort against TC was awful. as TigerFan noted, there were multiple blown pass coverages that allowed big TDs, and the O-line blocking was awful. Ill-timed penalties sealed the deal by either shutting down Tiger drives or extending TC drives. The team looked very undisciplined last night. Bednarski, Serrian and Chavez played their hearts out, better luck next year?

  • Goldenarm

    RAM FANS
    Every living Titan, current and former, will be wearing their blue/white chonies and be attending this Fridays game at San Marino. Rams need 100% support. We turned their world upset down last year – and trust me, they are dying to do the same to our new coaching staff and kids – to put them in harm’s way and in jeopardy of being eliminated via some coin flip scenario.
    Just like we did last year, they have seemingly prepared for this one game all year, anticipated it, waited for it. Anyone at the TC game last year, knows the electricity and sheer madness that ensued when Ruckle took the first play 80 yards to the house and ignited the entire Ram squad. Unbelievable. I lost my voice for 3 days following the game.

    We are the green/gold hospital ship right now…and all that means is that others must work harder, play harder and be relentlessly physical come Friday. This must be the “hitting” game of the year for us – the prize, control of our destiny. Undisputed proof that from the RHL come Monrovia, TC 1 and 2….the rest to follow.
    Go Rams!!

  • Goldenarm

    BFF,

    Bednarski is wearing a bigger body than last year, yet he still moved well…and needed to on most every pass play except the quick drops. We ran the ball poorly, for several of our own reasons and also the fact the Tigers defensed the run well.
    Spratt was actually fairly well covered but on the last couple strides he hit the Nitrous switch…and blew past defenders…Smith then rainbowed some beautiful passes in.
    Your punt returner came one player from a TD and the kid ran with everything he had. You have a massive nose tackle and #56 is a strong force on defense.
    I thought your kids played hard and never quit – as evidenced by all your points coming in the 4th.
    GA

  • Anne Onimus

    Are you serious. How exactly do you play like you’ve already earned a spot in the Championship and still put up 43 points and defensively dominate the other team? Tell me how exactly do you do that? And if you want us to “mark” your words, you’re gonna have to give us a name so we know who said it.

  • Oddsmaker

    MHS Fan,

    Haha that’s not how it works. Good win for Maranatha though.

  • HOT ROD

    I WOULD LIKE TO EXTEND AN INVITATION TO ALL MONROVIA FOOTBALL FANS TO JOIN US AT THE TURKEY TUSSLE THIS FRIDAY AT THE PASADENA ROSE BOWL. The M-Cats are playing a winless 0-9 BLAIR team. I KNOW ITS HARD TO GET EXCITED ABOUT THAT. THIS FRIDAY’S TUSSLE PROMISES TO BE A CLASSIC!

  • oldschoolpanthers

    Looks the Mead is gaining some steam headed into the playoffs. The return Joey Diaz in two weeks only makes them better on both sides of the ball. Diaz is the real deal and he will open up the offense.

  • Please

    Is it time for Blair to go in another direction?

  • Goldenarm

    Please

    The way Blair closed out two seasons ago it seemed they
    were at least starting to go a good direction. There was some good attitude on the field, camaraderie, even in the face of an unsuccessful season. Then, this year at season start Parks came out praising his 275lb average line and talking about skill player positions being in good shape.
    Sometime after that things went down the hole….and now you see an 0-9 team. Someone on the inside at Blair could likely detail all that went under the bridge from spring practice to season start. Something had to happen to tear up what did look to have potential at one time.

    Others might just say “it’s Blair”.

  • La Salle Afficiando

    I have been quiet this season, but I want to echo goteamgo and LSHS about Mikey Alexander.
    I have never seen a better single player performance on a high school football field. Mikey had mostly long runs to those TDs, and his TD saving tackles were the main reason that La Salle was able to keep their playoff hopes alive. He is a great kid, and I am happy for his success.
    Goldenarm, thanks for the nice comments. We have already played Verbum Dei, so one last game at Don Bosco, 1:30 pm Friday because they are in the same boat La Salle was a few years ago without lights and needing to finish on Friday due to CIF playoffs.
    Of course making the playoffs is bittersweet for La Salle, who would go in as a third place team in the Northwest Division, where Gardena Serra, Oaks Christian, St Joseph, and Cathedral are all 9-0 and have outscored opponents by 400 to less than 100.
    But you know what they say, on any given Friday night.
    I really miss the Mid Valley, with all their local teams.
    Good luck to all, and represent the WSGV in the playoffs.

  • your obsessed

    miguel, wen r u gonna cover someone besides nick bueno? u give him like 5 sentences on here every week. mike alexander gets 413 all purpose yards, including 4 TDS, and you just quickly mention that… this isnt the nick bueno/monrovia football blog, its the pasadena star news blog. please go to a game besides monrovia’s. i get tired of hearing about an average team(monrovia) in a crappy area. st. francis is the only team in the area who can compete with teams from the valley such as loyola, ND, crespi, amat, etc. and yet monrovia is a consideration for #1 in the area? how about they play ND and Loyola? both of those teams would absolutely destroy them. stop treating them like some incredible team. Monrovia=average team in a very crappy area for football

  • Anonymous

    Your Obsessed:
    He’s going with the WINNERS. So Looser, find another paper to sulk on. Bottom line NICK & MONROVIA sell PAPERS apparently your team doesn’t. Monrovia Played La Salle and Nick Alexander and as you saw Nick wouldn’t see any action at tailback at MHS he’s good but against less talented teams. St. Francis… well what can you say… another missed opportunity. Postumus 4 ints. that wont get you a win.

  • FB Einstein

    I hear you Goldenarm…Last years game was great but this years definitely has more meaning…If I remember correctly SM had some injuries last year…seems the tide has turned…Max looked slow early vs SP and Smith didn’t play the 2nd half…hope the grumblings I’m hearing are not true…

  • Goldenarm

    La Salle Afficiando

    your playoff picture is like the joy felt surviving a 6.5 earthquake….only to later realize it is the foreshock of an 8.9 that cleans your clock.

    The playoff teams you mention are not survivable by anyone in our area. The reward of getting there must account for something…beyond that it looks pretty bleak.

    Alexander is a gifted athlete, and did what he could do when placed at QB against us. Definitely a threat anytime he touches the ball. La Salle seemed just a player or two away this year…or maybe a combination of that and a scheme that was not really locked down on offense. What is the feeling of LS supporters?

    Have missed your keen observations – good luck the rest of the way.

    anonymous,
    im no la salle fan, far from it. i actually go to st. francis, and we would destroy monrovia. we played alemany this week, a teamw ho beat crespi, and it took justin’s worst game of the year, coupled with dietrich’s injury for them to beat us. Monroiva played la canada, who are hardly varsity football team. plus, how do you know that monrovia sells papers? they mite sell 20 extra papers per week. you act like their the Lakers or somethin. they dont sell papers, stupid point. the job of a local reporter is to cover as many teams as possible in the area, not just stay with one basically the whole season. thats why i said he should cover someone else. cover poly or san marino or temple city for all i care, just someone besides monrovia…

  • Goldenarm

    oldschoolpanther
    I think you are right about the Mead…they have whiffed the smelling salts and with return of Joey D could really shake things up. This will be even clearer when they destroy SoElMo Friday.

    NOTE: PARACLETE HAS SHUT OUT THEIR LAST 4 OPPONENTS!!!
    San Gabriel Valley – the monster is returning, rumors of his demise are false! Gather ye children and prepare – or suffer the consequences!!

    The Clete plays Valley Christian this Friday. This will unlock the 6-3 record of 3 teams from the Olympic.

    If TC wins Friday, I believe La Canada will likely get Arroyo in round 1. If TC loses…..I aint goin there, nevermind.
    San Marino will be so prepared, likely they will be wearing back-up jocks when they take the field. No doubt game of the year for Temple City. We don’t want no stinkin coin flip!!

  • New York

    The Northwest Division is similar to Division 10 from a few years ago, except substitute Oaks Christian for Crespi. Travelling a few hours north to the Los Padres league adds another element of excitement and mystery to the playoffs.

  • Anonymous

    OK Your Obsessed : For now let’s just stay in the area. Let’s just say La Canada! St. Francis hung on to beat a weak CV team who Beat a La Canada Team By 3 who Monrovia beat by 38. You do the Math. The reason Monrovia would beat St. Francis and by more than 20+ points is that they have the athletes to do it. Alemany had the athletes to do it. ND had the athletes to do it and I’m sure other teams have the athletes to do it. So for you to continue to jump on this blog and not know what the F3*ck you’re talking about means absolutely nothing. When you have a team that can hang with real athletes then post your meaningless blogs but until then sit back and wait for the post season to begin without your favorite team going past Thanks Giving and then you’ll be looking to see how many points Monrovia has scored. The Cats would put a MAJOR dent in your EGO if they played St. Francis. There’s always next year.

  • New York

    The St. Francis argument of “destroying” Monrovia is empty. SF may indeed beat Monrovia, but Monrovia may indeed beat SF head to head.

    Comparative victories over Burroughs puts SF on par with Schurr.

    Comparative scores with Cresenta Valley puts SF on par with La Canada (the team that is supposedly barely a varsity team.) La Canada put up 35 points on CV compared to SF’s 28.

    I know better than to think LC is on par with SF, but please stop with the outlandish statements that SF would simply dominate Monrovia.

    YOU ARE OBSESSED with Monrovia. HOWEVER, I do appreciate that you at least suggest specific other schools to cover, rather than just an empty anti-Monrovia argument.

  • papa d

    sf is averaging 31 points a game while only giving up 13 against good compettion…..sf’s 2 losses r by a combined 10 points……sf had 4 turnovers to alemanys 0 and they still had multiple chances to win the game……sf’s defense is beefing up….just throwing that out to all the arguers out there……whats monrovias points per game and points allowed ratio? btw in my opinion posthuma > bueno because he is double threat at qb while bueno can only run (56 yards per game passing) just saying

  • Anne Onimus

    Papad. Monrovia is averaging 37 points while giving up 10. I respect your opinion, but for you to say that Bueno can only run, makes it obvious that you’re only going by stats rather than actually watching the kid. Monrovia averages almost 320 yards rushing a game. If you were a coach would you throw the ball much at all if none of your opponents can put a dent in your running game? As a football respecting fan, if you see him, you would even say he throws on a rope and is deadly accurate in a roll out. Just saying.

  • your obsessed

    anonymous,
    first of all, we lost to alemany by 6 and ND by 3, so you think Monrovia we beat both of those teams? secondly, associative property doesnt work in sports, (meaning that this team beat this team, so we would beat you), but to prove you wrong, i’ll use it. Monroiva beats san marino by 2, la canada beat san marino by 4. so technically, by your stupid method, Monrovia should have lost to la canada. but Monrovia beat LC by 36, so obviously your method does not work, making your point invalid…

  • your obsessed

    New York,
    that was the main point of my post(to cover other teams), but i guess it just kinda turned into Monrovia bashing… and thank you for also realizing that the associative property does not work in sports…

  • Anonymous

    Back to you St. Francis obsessed fan:

    I personally do not like comparative analysis of mutual teams either, but for what it is worth you still seem to alway end up with your analysis of St. Francis being so dominate over Monrovia. In a heads up game Monrovia has the edge in every category. So I think that always telling fans who you guys loose to and by how much does nothing for your credibility. Monrovia hasn’t LOST to anyone so the comparisons are really null. When you beat one of those teams and land in the Big Game then we can talk about who’s who of high school football, until then your point is MUTE—–ZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

  • Football Fan

    Here we go again with Monrovia fans having no class. Is the F word necessary?? Then again that just shows the type of education one receives at Monrovia compared to SF.

  • New York

    I’m pretty sure you mean the transitive property…get back to Geometry class…and English class, you’re obsessed.

  • New York

    And you are correct, you’re obsessed, I do not put any value into the TRANSITIVE PROPERTY as applied to football. However, implicity references to it keep surfacing as false support that Monrovia would get “destroyed” by XYZ team.

  • Observantcat

    Football Fan:
    Its funny you say that, but read your fans (Obsessed Fan) blog and ask him in your next blog did he type this information himself or did his 5 year old help daddy? and as for you, What was your GPA: and where did you finish your college years at? I can name several Monrovia SC academic alum as well as a few great Ivy league grads that are also Monrovia alum and yes some are African American… just reading your mind.

    so the moors make the playoffs…..homecoming against keppel easy win….then first round and done. the end.

  • Goldenarm

    Monrovia faithful,

    Some friendly advice – before you stands the clearest shot and strongest odds at a CIF championship we in the SGV can hope to get.
    Rosemead was there and did not finish the job.

    Don’t get distracted in this SF comparison. Stay the course.

    An undefeated season would set the Cats in a place by themselves.

  • BigFatFan

    GoldenArm: Bednarski was coming back for his first start in nearly three weeks after sustaining a sprained knee, so he seemed a bit tentative on the runs. i am sure this week against LC, he will have more confidence that the knee will take the pounding. Lord knows he took some hits against TC on friday and kept on ticking. he has definately beefed up over last year, and we are all excited about looking forward to his senior year next season. without making excuses, SP has been hit with numerous key injuries throughout the season, and when you have a squad of 35-40 kids, that does not leave much depth, especially in the LB and DB positions. I heard that SP has some sort of chance to make if the playoffs if 1) they beat LC, 2) SM loses, and 3) they win a coin toss of some sort. HA HA, we’d better focus on just beating LC.

  • your obsessed

    anonymous,
    first of all, the word is moot, not mute, shows how smart you are… second of all, we did win one our BIG GAMES, against Loyola. Has Monrovia even played a so called BIG GAME yet? dont think so. unless you consider san marino a BIG GAME. and back to the comparative route, SF was beating arcadia 37-0 at halftime before playing second and third string players for almost the whole second half, and the game still ended up 40-0, but we all know it doesnt work rite?… and how does monrovia have the edge in every category. Is there some running back i am not aware of for monrovia that is better than Dietrich? does he have 20 something scholarship offers? how about one of Monrovia’s safeties? same level as Dietrich? QBs is a push. Bueno is a better scrambler, Posthuma, a better passer. Cabrera and Lowden are a push at LBs also. so i really dont see how Monrovia has the edge at every category..

  • your obsessed

    Observantcat,
    first of all, in the time i’ve been at SF, we have had at least 3 or 4 kids go to the Ivy Leagues every year so nice try.
    New York,
    ok so i mixed up transitive and associative property, so what? do you remember everything little thing you ever learned in class? didnt think so.

  • New York

    You’re still obsessed,
    It’s not about remembering little facts. It is about UNDERSTANDING them. You clearly don’t understand Monrovia football.

    You also arrogantly try to make arguments, only to embarassingly miss key references.

    By the way, Lowden is not a push with anyone locally, and Monrovia has the best linebacker corps in the valley.

  • wow

    this is a joke. monrovia might as well be playing flag football teams. if sf played a team like lchs and beat them as bad as monrovia did everyone would just be like oh good job sf you beat lchs, lchs is a popwarner team. but when monrovia beats them all the monrovia faithfull are acting like lchs is a pac-5 powerhouse. congrats monrovia on having the easiest schedule in the area. they should change the name of the Rio Hondo league to the Cupcake League. that suits the teams that are in it much better

  • Observantcat

    Obsessed Fan:

    Are we talking about football or IQ? either way you seem to be trying to make a point that your grass is greener no matter what. You are starting to seem like your obsessed that you live in the La Canada Area.

    Wow: I think that if we were to change places with St. Francis and they were to go into the RHL it might make better sense. I’d rather be in a place where winning is our only goal.

  • RHP83

    Goldenarm,
    Let’s not forget about Rio Hondo Prep.
    They may be small but they are undefeated and ranked
    # 1 in their division and defending Champions.
    Gotta show some love to the little guy.

  • local fan

    I have watched film on both S.F. and Monrovia and I think that it would be a toss-up. However, I would take Lowden over Cabrera. Bueno over Posthuma (Bueno is a playmaker). And Ramirez over Riley (Ramirez is faster and more athletic).

  • New York

    Wow,
    I don’t think any informed Monrovia fan has pointed to any specific victory as a sign of Monrovia football prominence. However, plenty of outsiders knock the teams on our schedule in EXACTLY the way you said would be done if SF were playing them. Your jab at LCHS is priceless, because LS scored more points on CV than SF did. Not that I am making a transitive property argument…

    Anyway, I hope SF wins the Western Division. That is very achievable.

  • New York

    “LC” not “LS.”

  • papa d

    THIS IS PATHETIC GUYS!
    these teams r in different leagues and different divisions
    on what planet is ramierez better then dietrich?! if he is better he should have more offers and he should b a household name like dietrich riley is in the wsgv
    one play that describes chris cabrera would b ladt year when he decleated, demoralize, and embarassed GOLPER from arcadia, wasnt golper the best in the valley by far the last few years? Cabrera had no fear…this kid can hit, fill holes, and flat out make plays…….chris cabrera is the best lb in the wsgv……..LAST BUT NOT LEAST……..posthuma is a better qb then bueno. posthuma can pass the ball with deadly accuracy, take a hit, give a hit, and run with athority. posthuma outplyed last years gatorade state player of the year :ryan kasadorf from notre dame in all aspects of the gamewhen sf played nd. when bueno outplays the top qb in the state is when i call him the best qb in the wsgv…….until then dietrich, cabrera, and posthuma r in a league of there own……………MONROVIA HAS GOOD PLAYER THAT R PROBABLY THE BEST IN THEIR DIVISION BUT SF’S PLAYERS R IN A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN………..i have a suggestion for all monrovia fans out there, schedule better competition, beatthem, then you guys can brag…..until then please save your words……..sf and monrovia will both bring back cif rings…but sf is the better team!

  • BigMLover

    Sadly, SF had left MULTIPLE game requests from the Monrovia AD UNANSWERED until last week… Their answer: “No Thank You, Monrovia”. Seems the “powerful” Knights aren’t interested in playing our “lowly”- regarded Cats. Guess NY’s “transitive property argument” is gonna have to do!

    Regardless, Coach Maddox has beefed up the non-league schedule for next year…no thanks to St Franny.

  • MHS fan

    SF doesn’t want any part of M-town. Won’t even return calls. Would have been great opportunity to prove their superiority.

  • M-town dad

    Ramirez is a soph and will be better than Riley before he is thru.

  • anonymous II

    papa d: Cabrera better than Lowden? I don’t think so! Posthuma is a pretty good qb, but Bueno makes things happen. Like a point guard playing qb, he can dish the rock or take it coast-to-coast. (Bueno is a walking highlight reel) Riley may be getting a ton of offers, but Ramirez will be one of the best athletes to come out the valley in a long time. (only a 10th grader)

  • Anonymous

    Is it fair to assume that Ramirez and Bueno also play defense too?

  • New York

    Well, that’s too bad. Oh well. Not settling matters on the field will make for more active blogging next season. Was this a PSN conspiracy??? We still have a pretty good lineup, though.

    Monrovia and Maddox and staff will keep building. Who knows where we will peak. Heck, this is still one of our building years.

    Scheduling can be an enigma. It took Monrovia-Arcadia (Garrison-Dimalante) about 12 or 13 years to finally get a game.

  • Big A

    Papa D,

    Would you like to describe the play that Cabrera embarrassed Golper? All I remember is the 24 tackle, 1 sack, 1 fumble force performance on a broken foot…never do I remember Golper being embarrassed.

    If you are talking about #55 where Cabrera was the lead blocker on a counter kickout block on the end from a gun slot formation then yes, he did embarrass that kid.

  • Seeing Right Through

    Local Fan aka A Monrovia Fan Who Is Trying To Sound Unbiased:

    It makes no sense that you give Monrovia the edge in the three most important positions on the field, and you still believe the game would be a toss-up. By your reasoning, Monrovia should have its way with SF. The reason why you say it is a toss-up is because your mind is thinking one thing (that SF is a more skilled and disciplined team that would dominate Monrovia) while your heart tells you another (that the Wildcats are unstoppable). I think that it is time for you to stop lying to yourself and that you make the predictions between the kittens and the brown and gold a little more realistic.

  • Coach C

    Like Stangfan said at the start of the season. Since they don’t play each other (Muir, St. Francis, Monrovia), you have the go by common opponents.That would be Arcadia.
    St. Francis 40-0
    Monrovia 27-13
    Muir 27-7

    Nough Said!!!!!

    Last year it was Muir that said they would beat St Francis. This year it is Monrovia that said they would beat St Francis. Next year it will probably be Rio Hondo Prep that will say the can be St.Francis. Again, the common denominator…That would be St Francis.

    Nough Said!!!!!!!

  • Observantcat

    Monrovia has always had better athletes than St. Francis… Any any given year would beat the pants of the brown and gold. St. Francis coaches know that and that is the reason they would not put the Cats on their schedule. They would rather beat up on an Arcadia team that always follows the cats game with their top players on the sidelines due to injuries. Head up the Cats are just Better, nuf said. You guys have one good year and you think your history has changed. It doesn’t work that way. I’m sure Maddox would welcome the challenge. Bonds doesn’t want to hurt his sensitive fans feelings You could probably beat a lot of teams who’s starting QB, RB & LB are sitting on the bench.

  • Observantcat

    Ps. Coach C.

    Leave Stang Fan out of this, His Mustangs have their own issues this week. By the way, the Mustangs probably would give you guys a run for your money this year!

  • New York

    Coach C.
    Using your comparative analysis, would you say that Schurr’s defense is better than SF’s?
    Schurr 20 Burroughs 7
    SF 35 Burroughs 20

    Would you concede that La Canada’s Offense is better than SF’s offense?
    La Canada 35 CV 38
    SF 28 CV 21

    It is very telling how many SF supporters conceded a 1/2 toss up in the ranking to SF/Muir or Muir/SF at the start of the season. Nice digging guys. Your analysis was about as good as that of “Coach C.” Now that Monrovia has put together a strong season, it seems that many SF supporters just can not admit that perhaps Monrovia can be considered with SF in a 1/2 or 2/1 toss up. That’s okay. You’re stuck in the past.

    One more thing: I can not recall any Monrovia fans just coming outright and making claims about being #1. We have typically been drawn out in defense of our team when other bloggers start bashing our team.

    Let’s try to find a bit more civility and stick to the topic and discuss football. This is a very exciting time of the year. We have multiple local teams who are well-positioned to have a nice playoff run.

  • Geography

    Just curious… What part of Monrovia is New York in???

  • Anonymous

    I agree there is too much in the paper and on this blog about Nick Bueno. As a Monrovia parent I am tired of it. It always feels like HE (bueno) is out there playing by himself.

  • Football Fan

    I agree with Anonymous!!! Bueno is not the whole Monrovia team. There are other kittens on the team. Riley is not the whole SF Team either. It’s a team effort.

  • Coach C

    New York,
    I would concede that SF’s D is better than Monrovia’s:
    St Francis 40 Arcadia 0
    Monrovia 27 Arcadia 13

    I would say the SF’s O is better than Monrovia’s:
    St Francis 40 Arcadia 0
    Monrovia 27 Arcadia 13

    O-Cat,
    If Monrovia always has better athletes than SF, that tells me that SF has a better coaching staff. Making more out of less, according to your theory.

    Sorry for touching a nerve, didn’t mean to get you so riled up.

  • Cats fan

    Nice try anonymous. If you were an actual M-town parent, then you know that Bueno deserves alot of the credit. He is also a great kid, one that is humble and probably one of the hardest workers on that team. So, once again, nice try on starting $–t within the M-town followers.

  • Observantcat

    Coach C:

    Let me give you the Monrovia/Arcadia breakdown:

    Coach Maddoxx was still feeling out his team. We ran about 3 running backs neither of which ended up on the starting roster. In the situation we found that Derrick Johnson was capable of running the ball at his size more so than other backs who wanted a chance to prove themselves. Nick Bueono only threw the ball 7 times the entire game. DeShawn Ramirez along with a host of other starters did not see playing time in that game. As for our Defense, we allowed just 7 honest points. The other 6 came late in 4th quarter when we were trying out some of our other team members at defensive positions.

    Now as far as St. Francis is concerned, You played a Injury plagued Arcadia team who is really in a building year and considered this your best comparison of mutual teams? Trust me, you wouldn’t have such luck against Monrovia, DeShawn is a much Better running back than Dietrich Riley and he is only a sophomore, Nick Bueno is the ANSWER, He may not pass much but on 3rd and long he’s about 80% on the first downs. OUr Defense would stop anything you throw at us especially the run game. Oh and by the way we are 9-0 and intending on staying undefeated until someone can stop us.

    I truly dont think you guys could be San Dimas heads up!

  • B.Jacobs

    the reason sf wouldnt want to play monrovia is because its a lose-lose situation for them. if they win the only thing they gain from that is shutting up local monrovia fans. if they win, everyone outside of this area is just going to be like, “why would sf schedule a game like that? monrovia is not going to prep them for league”.

  • New York

    B. Jacobs,
    Very good insight. I tend to agree. However, SF’s schedule contradicts your very sound reasoning. El Rancho, Arcadia, Cresenta Valley, Burroughs and Rio Mesa really don’t stack up on paper to prepare SF either. So maybe Monrovia has to finally win a couple Mid-Valley titles (I vote for that) before SF will consider playing. That way it would not be as much of the purported “lose-lose.” By that time, though, Monrovia playing SF may be a “lose-lose” to Monrovia. We shall see.

    Coach C,
    You are not conceding anything. I would have to concede to your last statement. But with your logic, you need to follow it up and say that Schurr has a better D and La Canada has a better O than La Canada. Otherwise, stop bringing up the Arcadia game 10 weeks ago as reflective of Monrovia’s ability.

    Geography,
    845 W. Colorado Blvd is the only address that matters.

  • Golden Knights Fan

    BigMLover, MHS Fan, and O Cat-

    I’m curious, when your AD was making all those calls to SF, did he make any calls to any other schools? Maybe he called Charter Oak (Oh, I forgot, you already played them a couple years ago and got hammered 34-3 and 41-0). Lets just forget CO, that woud not be conducive to “Being in a place where winning is our only goal”. Maybe he put calls in to Muir, Damien, Los Osos, Rancho Cucamonga, Etiwanda or Upland (Dick Salter’s son coaches Upland….it would be like the good old days between Mon-Arc). They all have great programs and they are in the general area. Since SF is not available to play Monrovia, I guess we will have to continue the “Transitive Property Arguement”. Instead of just using Arcadia, may I suggest some other schools (since Maddox is beefing up your non-league schedule). I hope he can get maybe one or two of the schools we play…..Amat, Crespi, Notre Dame (Sherman Oaks), or Loyola. Maybe your AD can even try contacting our next years new league teams to make things a bit more interesting. Those teams are Serra (Gardena), Cathedral (Los Angeles) or Harvard Westlake. If you insist on continuing to bash our school, then you need to be able to step up to our level of league play. Just a thought!

  • Observantcat

    Golden knights fan:

    As a matter of fact he is currently in negotiations with other coaches, I’m sure they will be top notched schools. Its funny you brought up CO. Back then we had several of our players on that winning squad as well. That was then this is now. It seems like Maddox is keeping the horses in the stable. I think we definately need to play against much tougher teams for our own teams sake.

  • New York

    Golden Knights Fan,

    What did El Rancho and Rio Mesa have to do to get on the schedule? Guarantee SF a victory?

    So you will play Serra and Cathedral next year? Well, like Monrovia, those two teams were not able to win Division X either prior to moving “up”. There is far more parity than you want to admit.

  • billy jacobs

    well i hope coach bonds and terrazone schedule some good pre league games because next year the Mission League is Serra, Harvs Westlake, Cathedral, SF, St. Paul and the Nade. Alemany is going to the pac-5, good luck with that.

    I see the whole St. Frannis beef is still in effect??? Wow I thought that dumb arguement was done already.

    Golden Knights Fan
    No one is dissing or hating on SF. Both schools are doing really well, and when the debate goes on who’s the best school in the area, obviously theres gonna be some debate. But why cant we just agree to disagree. You’re gonna bring up ur tough schedule, we’re gonna bring up our loads of talent across the board. But then again, Monrovia Could beat El Rancho on anyday hahaha. Ive been preaching on playing muir again since we stopped playing them. I think all you SF fans need to stop worrying if monrovia is going to play you or not, and think about ur team getting deep in the playoffs, thats what we’re thinking, us monrovia fans really dont care if we’re number 1 or number 5, as long as our cats are still playing hard and winning games, thats all that matters, that and a CIF ring. This is like when Kobe went all the to the championship two seasons ago and lost. the following season anything but a championship was pretty much a failure. The team we have this year should get it done as well as our division being weak too.

    On another note, I wondered that as well how serra and Cathedral bumped up in division without winning CIF….maybe someone cant help out with that one.

    On last weeks game where are those haters on bueno??? He cant throw, hes just a running Qb blah blah blah. Obviously you cant type and blog if your choking on your words!!!!

    Your Obsessed,
    I guess Sf fans gotta hate they just gotta hate. Monrovia is in a weak league, everyone already knows this. If you think that monrovia would get destroyed by the teams that you play, your WRONG. Man I would love monrovia to play Sf next year, win the game and then hear all you bloggers say “You should of played us last year when we had riley!”

    Football fan
    Lets think about who really has class…..when both teams started off undefeated, all i heard was SF would destroy monrovia, monrovia has a weak schedule yadda yadda yadda. You wanna talk about the type education in comparison, save it for someone that wants to hear that garbage. Shows where your class is….yeah your probably right the F-bomb isnt necessary but then again I think like all monrovia fans are tired of hearing the SF fans talk about how Monrovia is soooo inferior to them. Its getting so efffinnn old. Think about playoffs and going pass the 2nd round.
