Monrovia vs. San Dimas Highlights
Rosemead 21, San Marino 7 – Matt Fregoso rushed for 233 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Panthers. Rosemead was marred by penalties, 11 to be exact. The flags negated long plays or delayed long scoring drives for Rosemead. Frustration set in for San Marino late in the second half when a scuffle broke out, resulting in the ejection of San Marino’s Manny Vargas and Rosemead’s Mike Chavez.
San Dimas 35, Monrovia 34, OT — Cody Watts accounted for four touchdowns to lead the Saints. Nick Bueno’s 1-yard run attempt for a two-point conversion in overtime was the end for the Wildcats. San Dimas trailed 28-7 heading in the fourth, scored 21 unanswered points and won in overtime. I’m shocked. Absolutely shocked.
Arcadia 42, Temple City 14 – Arcadia quarterback Myles Carr accounted for four touchdowns and the Apaches scored on six consecutive possessions starting in the second quarter all the way to the fourth. Temple City did not have a passing yard until the fourth quarter, and two shotgun snaps late in the first half that went over quarterback Mikel Quintanilla set up two Arcadia scores.
South Pasadena 27, Glendale 21 — The game went back and forth with South Pasadena narrowly staying ahead. It started with the Tigers off to a 14-0 lead after the first quarter.

It went 14-13, 21-13, Glendale tied it 21-21 in the fourth before Matt Nelson caught a 20-yard pass from quarterback Conor Bednarski. South Pasadena running back Patrick Martin had 23 carries for 136 yards, 103 yards of which came in the second half.
Pasadena 33, La Salle 16 — Andreece Brown had 25 carries for 124 yards and four touchdowns to lead the Bulldogs to their first win. Cleo Bates rushed for 107 yards and one touchdown. Classy moment of the night: With 1:04 left in the game and a 10-point lead, Pasadena decides to go for it on first-and-10 at the Lancers’ 13-yard line.
San Gabriel 27, Contreras 6 – Matadors QB Andy Guerrero rushed for 156 yards and passed for 135 yards to give Jude Oliva his first win as head coach. Guerrero started in place of sophmore Eric Alvarez.

Sierra Vista 42, Keppel 12 — The Aztecs could not stop the Dons run game, who piled up 308 yards on 28 carries and four touchdowns. Keppel’s scoring came on an 80-yard pass on a fake field punt from Walter Ortiz to Adrian Portillo. Sierra Vista scored on its first play and the Aztecs answered with an 80-yard drive, but that’s as close as Keppel would get.
Alhambra 20, L.A. Wilson 20 — The Moors were missing a slew of players for disciplinary reasons. At one point, Alhambra coach Lou Torres was playing six sophomores on defense. Still, the Moors marched into Wilson territory and came away with the victory.
