Tonight’s results
Muir 43, San Gabriel 20 — Muir proved to be too much for San Gabriel. Kevon Seymour returned a punt 59 yards for a score and Tairen Owens had 112 all-purpose yards and a touchdown. Freshman wide receiver Darick Holmes scored two touchdowns and Tyquwan Glass recorded two interceptions. First-year starter Josh Washington was impressive completing 10 of 22 passes for 232 yards and four touchdowns. San Gabriel got on the board early in the first quarter on an Andy Guerrero 11-yard run. But Muir roared back with 37 unanswered points in the first half. Eric Alvarez took over at quarterback in the second half after a nonexistent first half. Alex Villalobos caught 10 passes for a game-high 97 yards.

Village Christian 26, La Salle 21– The Lancers had two touchdowns negated because of penalties in the first half but still was up 14-0 at the half. Matt Barrero perhaps made the biggest play of the game, returning a fumble 90 yards for a score to make it 21-0 midway through the third quarter. Sadly for the Lancers, it went downhill from there. Village Christian mounted a comeback led by Cayden Boyd, who had four consecutive completion, three of which were touchdowns. La Salle’s defense looked pretty winded out there and just couldn’t keep up in the shocker. It didn’t help that the offense wasn’t finishing drives anymore.

Maranatha 41, Big Bear 12 — Andrew Elffers looked sharp, going 13 for 20 for 224 and three touchdowns. On the ground, Elffers added two touchdowns. Darien McGee caught six catches for 130 yards, including a 70-yard touchdown reception from Elffers. He added a 47-yard touchdown run. Robby Flewelling had a touchdown reception from 35 yards.

Alhambra 47, Mountain View 7 — Anthony Ortega had a 51-yard touchdown run and Josh Mendoza went 5 of 7 for 65 yards and threw for a touchdown and ran for another. The Moors were in complete control. Nathan Quinones was solid on both sides, recovering a fumble, caught a 4-yard touchdown pass and wreaked havoc in the backfield. Mountain View committed six turnovers (five fumbles, one interception). Demetrias Russell returned an interception for 51 yards and a 71-yard punt return. Huge game.

Gabrielino 35, Cerritos 20 — Gabrielino quarterback Lorenzo Mena connected for a 56-yard touchdown pass to Alex Munoz and a 5-yard pass to Carlos Monjares. The running game was alive and well as Monjares in the third quarter scored on runs of 54 and 25 yards. He also caught a touchdown pass in the opening quarter. Monjares finished the night with 129 yards on 11 carries.

Alemany 55, Pasadena 0 — Alemany’s Devon Dunn scorched the visiting Bulldogs in his first career varsity start. He completed 16 of 21 passes for 241 yards and three first-half touchdowns. He also scored on a 19-yard run. Dunn connected with UCLA-commit Steven Mitchell on touchdown catches of 16 and 4 yards.

    Line play could easily be the deciding factor in this contest. Though they will try, San Gabriel cannot deny Seymour and other Mustang athletes open field opportunities all night. The Mats are going to need some push up front in order to get consecutive first downs and chew some clock. If they find themselves in 3rd and long situations – it plays to Muirs strengths of defensive team speed and athleticism.

    Muir by 50. Two D-1 scholarship skill guys, one is a Florida utility player. Too much to deal with.

    Predicting a Mustang victory but don’t believe this match up will resemble last year’s slaughter. SG will come with a plan; looking for some real play action. Should be a great game.

    See ya there….

    Muir should win this one kind of easy SG does have a d1 receiver that should cause some problems. No doubt in my mind that Seymour will get his in and Owens but who im anxious to see is Derrick Holmes the freshmen even though i would be at the CHARGERS game i will def have an ear to the Muir game also.
    CEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeOOooooooooooooooooo

    Wow. This was a very quiet weekend on the blog. I assume it is because neither Arcadia nor Monrovia played last Friday….StangFan, where are you with a synopsis of Muir’s victory?

    Well, this week every team will be in action. I am sure Arcadia-St. Francis will be a slugfest and a great test for each team.

    Monrovia has Glendora. This will be the first game Coach Maddox does not have Nick Bueno (41 game starter) at QB. Monrovia’s offense typically takes time to get warmed up, so this will be even more interesting with a new QB…Our RBs and OL should provide some support, though! Our D-line and backers will get tested by a physical run game. McCarthy’s presence should be disruptive and open opportunities for our backers to wreak havoc. Glendora is not a Baseline power, but Glendora’s line is always strong and they have a big back. This is a team that regularly won the Sierra League up until league reallignments a couple years ago. Plus, they have a real game against a real team under their belt.
