St. Francis 42, Arcadia 27 — Taylor Lagace did his best to keep the Apaches in the game, but to no avail. He caught 13 passes for 156 yards and scored two touchdowns and another on a 32-yard interception. Arcadia quarterback Myles Carr completed 26 of 42 passes for 317 yards and three touchdowns. He was picked off twice.
Glendora 21, Monrovia 7 – Turnovers cost the Wildcats in this one. Monrovia had four, and that was enough for the Tartans to capitalize and pick up the win. We’ll have video of this game Saturday morning.
Arroyo 42, Temple City 6 — Temple City skill players are underdeveloped and were mistake-prone. There were two fumbles lost in the center-quarterback exchange. The shotgun doesn’t look solid, but remember that Mikal Quintanilla is only a sophomore quarterback. Temple City definitely will go through some growing pains.
Maranatha 38, La Salle 7 – Andrew Elffers threw for 166 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Minutemen.
South Pasadena 22, San Gabriel 9 — Patrick Martin is the unsung running back nobody knows now, but soon will. He rushed for 137 yards, 103 of which came in the fourth quarter. San Gabriel had trouble stopping the run. Martin wore down the Matadors defense with his punishing runs. The game was close. The Tigers led 13-9 heading into the fourth quarter. Martin at that point had only 34 yards rushing. Wow.
San Marino 35, Gabrielino 0 — Kawame Do rushed for 185 yards and scored two touchdowns. He had a third score called back. He’s proving to be a tough runner and will be a solid replacement for Benny Hung. San Marino started Garrett Glazier at quarterback. Luke Benuska, a 6-foot-6 tight end, had two nice catches in traffic. He scored on an 11-yard reception from Glazier.
Blair 23, Duarte 0 — Both offenses struggled and the game was marred by a slew of penalties. Brenden Kerr scored two touchdowns on runs of 1- and 37-yards to lead the Vikings.
Rosemead 17, Montebello 13 — Matt Koffler gets off 2010 start on good note.
Workman 34, Keppel 0 — It’s going to be a long season for the Aztecs. Long.
Saugus 28, Muir 14 – Jeffrey Davis was taken to the hospital after he collapsed on the sidelines early in the fourth quarter. He suffered what appeared to be an injury to the chest during a 2-point conversion in the third quarter. The game was delayed 30 minutes.
St. Bernard 21, Marshall 7 – Marshall was driving with the score tied at 7, but the Eagles fumbled and St. Bernard returned it for a score. Marshall was stymied by turnovers.
Rio Hondo Prep 21, Big Bear 12 — Big Bear’s first night game in four years ended with a loss. Rio Hondo Prep led 7-6 at the half.
