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.
