Rowland vs. Rosemead highlights
Bishop Amat 34, Muir 14 — Zach Shay scores three touchdowns and finishes with 107 yards. Jalen Moore rushes for 128 yards and a TD and Rio Ruiz throws for 145 yards and two touchdowns. Nice numbers for sure, but you get the feeling the offense has opened it up and can do so much more. Still, nice to be 3-0.
Monrovia 34, Arcadia 7 – Nick Bueno put on a show. He completed 11 of 17 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 204 yards on 12 carries with two touchdowns. He scored on runs of 53 and 78 yards and connected twice with Jay Henderson with 20- and 13-yard scores. Monrovia’s new stadium looks gorgeous, and the Wildcats made sure the unveiling of their new stadium wasn’t spoiled by a determined Arcadia team. Taylor Lagace was nearly shut down offensively. He made only three catches for 9 yards. Derrin Jenkins played flawlessly at corner and pestered Lagace all night. Mason Bryant also assisted late in the game. Ellis McCarthy is better than advertised. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound beast hounded Myles Carr all night, forcing the junior quarterback to alter his throws. Carr completed only 12-of-24 passes for 89 yards. He connected on a 28-yard touchdown pass to David Maldonado. But the Apaches wouldn’t be a threat the rest of the game. Lagace made an interception in the end zone, but the Apaches turned it over, giving way for a Christian Blanco score on the ensuing possession. Lagace returned a punt to the Monrovia 42, but the Apaches had to punt on fourth-and-20.
Ahambra 20, Temple City 14 – Alhambra scored 14 points on its first two drives after scoring just 13 points in its first two games combined. Temple City’s power running game appears to be back. Senior Joshua Simangunsong rushed for 135 yards on 20 carries, “a 180 degree difference” from their opening game, Temple City coach Mike McFarland said.
St. Francis 42, Crescenta Valley 14 — Brett Nelson completed 13 of 22 passes for 187 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed for another from 7 yards. Travis Talianko connected, but Ian Hamilton was just as impressive even without a TD. He caught six passes for 110 yards.
Rowland 48, Rosemead 14 – For the second straight week, the Raiders jump to a 28-0 lead and actually scored the first two times they touched the ball. Rough night for the Panthers.
San Marino 48, La Salle 6 — The San Marino offense rode with Kwame Do. He rushed for 101 yards in the first quarter alone. It’s pretty obvious the La Salle offense continues to struggle. Do finished with 223 yards on 12 carries, but not all ended well. Do suffered what appears to be a season-ending injury when early prognosis indicated an ACL tear. We’ll know more Monday.
Burbank 44, San Gabriel 36 — Burbank opened with a 37-point lead but almost gave it away in the second half. Ulisies Ochoa ran for four TD’s and caught another one. San Gabriel’s Eric Alvarez was replaced by Andy Guerrero late in the first quarter. Guerrero made the most of his opportunity, passing for 148 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for another.
La Canada 40, Glendale 14 — Daleep Sandhu had 22 carries for 119 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Spartans. Sandhu said the La Canada offensive line is undersized, but that they played big, resulting in five rushing touchdowns.
Cathedral 36, Pasadena 0 — Can we fast forward to the Turkey Tussle?
Gabrielino 43, Keppel 0 — Running back Eddie Moreno ran back two punt returns and had a 62-yard rushing score to lead the Eagles.
Pasadena Poly 51, Marshall 21 — Way to bounce back after losing a close one to Malibu last week.
Bosco Tech 35, Gladstone 28 — Nothing like going on the road and coming home with a victory. The Tigers do it for the second straight week.
Maranatha 66, Santa Maria 21 – Maranatha’s defense shut down Santa Maria in the second half, the lone touchdown coming on a 42-yard interception return. Jeremy Majors had 234 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns total. He had two receiving (60- and 12-yards) and returned two punts for 60- and 72-yards. Sophomore quarterback Andrew Elfers completed 17 of 24 for 287 yards and four touchdowns. This kid is going to be good.
Rio Hondo Prep 44, Kilpatrick 12 — Charles Quintero had 167 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns to lead the Kares.
Grace Brethren 46, Flintridge Prep 20 — Rebels had a tough one on the road.
