Arcadia 34, Muir 13 — Myles Carr completed 14 of 17 passes for 195 yards and three touchdowns, two to John Wong and one to Taylor Lagace. Nader Doumani returned a fumble 72 yards in the first quarter to put the Apaches up 14-0. Lagace recorded two interceptions and laid one of the biggest hits I’ve ever seen in my 10 years of covering high school football. Lagace and Muir’s Daityevon McFadden collided, with McFadden getting the brunt end of it. McFadden was slow to get up, but to his credit remained in the game and soldiered on. Arcadia recovered several fumbles, including one by Lagace and Wong. Straight up, Arcadia outplayed Muir in just about every facet of the game. After the game, Muir coach Ken Howard said, “I didn’t expect that kind of performance” and when I asked from which team, he said both. No doubt he was impressed, as I’m sure the rest of the West San Gabriel Valley is, too. Muir was healthy, had its weapons at its disposal, but the Apaches made it difficult moving the ball. Muir also didn’t help itself with penalties halting drives and negating several first-down conversions. Good win for Arcadia, that it gave Dimalante his 100th career win at Arcadia must have felt even more special.
