If not for Maranatha’s 43-21 win over La Ca ada last week, no high school football team from Pasadena would have recorded a win in Week 4.
Pasadena and Muir each lost its Pacific League opener, to Arcadia (44-7) and Burbank (22-19), respectively. La Salle lost its Del Rey League opener to Bosco Tech (28-21) while Blair and Marshall were shut out in losses to St. Monica (42-0) and Paraclete (62-0), respectively. Pasadena Poly had a bye.
Maranatha’s defense deserves a lot of credit for the big win against its first Mid- Valley Division opponent this season. The defense recorded nine sacks while Minutemen quarterback Andrew Elfers threw for 200 yards on 9-of-19 passing with three touchdowns to lead the offense.
