Thursday Night: Monrovia is Bueno in win vs. South Hills

Fred J says: You want reality, Monrovia’s 28-25 victory over South Hills means the Huskies could finish 1-9, maybe 2-8 or 3-7 at best. They would have trouble with the best in the Hacienda, so imagine what awaits in the Sierra, not to mention another non-leaguer against Los Osos. Truth is, they’re not the bad, they’re still better than most teams in the Valley, but clearly not among the area’s elite. They can score, but they give up a lot of points too, a trend that could continue with a youthful defense and unforgiving schedule. Also, Monrovia is pretty darn good, it won’t surprise me at all if they go unbeaten the rest of the way and win the Mid-Valley title. They took a 28-17 lead into the fourth quarter after blowing a 21-point fourth-quarter lead last week to San Dimas. That means gut-check time, and they showed their guts. After South Hills scored and made the conversion to cut it to 28-25 with four minutes left, the Cat’s faced a fourth-and-inches at their own 29 with just over two minutes left. They didn’t punt, they let their offense win it, getting a game-clinching first down. That was a way of saying, what happened last week won’t happen again. M-Town, this is what you needed, watch how it paves the way for better things to come. — FJR

    A game this fun should be on TV. FSN drops the ball with their boring blowouts they insist on covering. Everyone should bring their video cameras and send clips to CH9 and CH4 to show on their HS sports recap.

    Wooooooow…congrats to monrovia.. Thats a big win

  • Philly B

    Congradulations Monrovia….Aram…Miguel….What are your thoughts now….Miguel You should pick against the cats every week hahaha. Nah Just kidding I understood why you picked South hills, as of late Monrovia hasnt proven to win the big games, only games they’re suppose to win!….But again Congrats to the cats!

  • SaintsR4real

    Congrats Billycats!!

    I was at the game and dreaded seeing S.Hills making a comeback like S.D. did. Credit goes to Mtown for keeping control of the game. I felt there is alot of talent and size on the S. Hills team, but a little too slow tonite.

    Mtowns defense front line defense showed up for 4 qtrs tonite, cant say the same for the secondary.

    Bueno AND Team was not going to let this one get away.

    See you guys in December!!

  • elias buckwalter

    Why did all of you pick South Hills? Didn’t you see what West Covina did to them. Monrovia was clearly better meltdown against SD or no.

  • Anonymous

    I dont know what game you all are watching…Monrovia is not that good right now and needs a lot of work. Only time will tell and determine if SD and Glendora were just as bad.

  • mtown for life

    Monrovia showed some heart last night. Honestly Monrovia is really good. They are going through some growing Pains. Last week when they imploded againgst San Dimas, it was due to the youth in the secondary. They got baptized in the 4th in that game.These SO. DBs were stars on the Freshman team, but with only 12 games played in their high school career, things are different on Var. San Dimas, found out where the sophmore DB’s were, and the went after them. South Hills, tried to duplicate that effort, but this week the youngsters held on. Each week they will get better. By the end of the year, they won’t be giving up games. Last night I saw beat up, tired south hills team. That West Co and Tesoro Game took a toll on them. South hills did not have any subs. I saw 9 out of 11 players going 3 ways. Offense, Defense, and special teams. A SHS player threw up in the game on the field. Having no depth, will cost them league.

  • Mtown Alumni

    No one in the valley is playing flawless right now.
    Monrovia is good, but does need alot work. They still had some personal fouls, the sophpmore DB’s had some PI’s, and they had a fumble. Bueno did not throw enough, but still managed to throw a pick. The Rio Hondo will be a great place for Monrovia to work on their mistakes. They did show well against upper division foes so far. The San Dimas game was the typical tightening up of a Monrovia team in a battle. They will have to conquer that bad habbit in order to win a title.

  • Anonymous

    Wow is all I can say to RJR, why don’t you pick the schools that you jump on the band wagon with after they have a big win. Monrovia has played well enough this season to pick them. But then again how much do really know about Football ?.

  • New York

    Nice work, Monrovia. Keep improving.

    The blogs are quietest when Monrovia has a significant win because the haters stay home.

  • Philly B.

    Hahahaha. Well Said New York….Because after the Monrovia beat Arcadia, all the realists that was there went “Fade to Black!” hahaha…Our DB’s gotta grow up fast So we can get back to the championship Game!

  • New York


    You mean WIN the championship, right? Simply getting there should never be anyone’s goal.

  • Philly B.

    Of Course New York…WIN the Championship this time around!!!

  • Goldenarm

    This is just a corner edge of the sweet pie
    that comes to a program that is gutsy enough to “play up” in it’s pre-league schedule.

    Their is no shame in making mistakes or having weaknesses exposed or losing early on in preleague match ups with strong teams. And amid this win, the detractors still cry SH is weak this year. The truth is M-town has already had two or 3 high exposure, pressure type games against opponents with all types of defensive and offensive strengths…what other team in the RHL has?
    This is what it is, and that is preparation. It is smart football well planned. If M-town succeeds or fails come November and December- it can’t be said they were not ready to face pressure or were not prepared for big game atmosphere.
    Those who hate Monrovia are in for a decade of pain. 2010 is just a rung on the ladder where descending is not an option.
    Good job Monrovia.

  • turnovers

    This week’s game will test if monrovia has learned their lesson of taking care of the ball. paramount’s 3-1 record relied on forcing 11 turnovers and monrovia needs to show that it can have an efficient offense, not completely relying on the big play, without giving the ball away.

  • SaintsR4real

    The Billycats should take care of busines playing Paramount. The only decent team they played was Wilson (Long Beach).

    Monrovia 34, Paramount 17

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
