Thursday Night Aftermath: Should I make Fred Robledo buy me lunch after Monrovia beat Glendora? I’ll let him keep his money. San Marino beats Eagle Rock big, 31-0.

Looks like Monrovia fans were a little worried about the offense in the first half with the Wildcats trailing 9-7 at the half. Ouch. Not sure what happened or how they turned it around. Our Keith Lair was there to report on the game, and from what he tells me it drew quite the attention. UCLA’s Rick Neuheisel, USC’s Ed Orgeron and others from Oregon State and San Jose State were there, presumably to watch Mornovia’s Ellis McCarthy. I was at the San Marino game tonight. I’m under the weather, and because we found out late this game was moved to Thursday I decided to cover it. San Marino has some talent, no doubt. But the Titans were definitely not challenged by Eagle Rock. The Titans (1-0) led 24-0 at thehalf and did not allow Eagle Rock (0-2) to get past its own 38 yard line. The Eagles didn’t complete their first pass until 2:21 left in the second quarter and didn’t get past midfield until less than a minute left in the game. San Marino held Eagle Rock to 38 yards rushing in the first half while the Titans racked up 222 yards rushing in the first half allone, 119 of them from Do, who finished with 178 yard rushing on 19 carries. He scored on runs of 5, 1 and 45. Matt Wofford commanded the offense pretty well at quarterback. Still not completely sold on San Marino. I’ll check out La Salle on Friday and know whether they’ll give San Marino a run for its money in Week 2. That’s it for now. See yall Friday.

    Hey Miguel, just for that statement alone I would make fred take me out to lunch. As long as you have covered the westside Freddy has always put doubt in your mind about how good Monrovia really is. This time is no different. Sure Monrovia struggled in the first half of their first game under the lights but made plays when they counted. Our defense is only going to get better along with our offense. G5 put on a second half clinic with his passing and DeShawn and Marquis put on a fireworks show with their running game. Wingenbach, Williams & Craft became deadly weapons in the second half as our offensive made adjustments. As for Freds comment, sure everyone was sweating in the first half, but we knew that we had the kind of players that could come back in a flash and they did. Maddox took his foot off the gas late in the 3rd to give his stars a break or the game could have easily reached the 40′s. It was all Monrovia in the second half.

    Blair gets trounced by cellar-dweller Duarte. and remind me, why does Blair deserve to be in the Rio Hondo league? they should be moved into a league that they can actually compete in, and then bring in a school with an actual athletic program to compete with the other Rio Hondo teams. Blair football and baseball is a complete joke.

    I have heard that this is the last year for Blair in the Rio Hondo.

    The ‘Cat’s stumbled, fumbled and did stupid things. Then, when they got everyone on the same page, steamroller!
    Another tough game coming up vs Arcadia.
    GO ‘CATS!
