Melendez: 14-3 last week; total 33-11
Stang Fan: 17-0 last week; total 33-11
Well well well. Look at Stang Fan clawing his way back to forge a tie as we head into Week 3. It’s all good. I put my money on San Gabriel, Santa Maria and Flintridge Prep. In all honesty, I probably should have been 16-1 because for the life of me I can’t recall why I picked Santa Maria and Flintridge Prep. But I really did think San Gabriel would come away with the win. Strong preseason, for sure.
There’s a lot of good candidates for player of the week honors, and where to begin?
Gabrielino’s Eddie Moreno rushed for 154 yards on five carries, returned two punts for touchdowns on 74- and 76 yards, recorded two receptions for 27 yards, threw for an 18-yard touchdown pass for a total of 4 touchdowns and 339 all-purpose yards.
Maranatha’s Jeremy Major had 230 yards of total offense. He recorded five receptions for 101 yards, two touchdowns on punt returns for 123 total yards for a total of four touchdowns.
St. Francis quarterback Brett Nelson completed 13 of 22 passes for 187 yards and three touchdowns.
Monrovia’s Nick Bueno completed 11 of 17 passes for 196 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for 204 yards on 12 carries with two touchdowns, scoring on runs of 53 and 78 yards. Bueno also connected twice with Jay Henderson with 20- and 13-yard scores.
San Marino’s Kwame Do rushed for 101 yards in the first quarter alone for 223 yards on 12 carries on the night.
I could really use your help here.
