Friday Night Aftermath: Maranatha loses its cool, loses to Whittier Christian, 24-21; Pasadena shocks Burbank, 27-21; Arcadia, Muir win big; South Pasadena and San Marino remain unbeaten in Rio Hondo League; St. Francis loses to Serra; Duarte wins in OT.



Whittier Christian 24, Maranatha 21 — Maranatha lost its composure in the final minute of play that saw two penalties against the Minutemen followed by two Maranatha players slamming their helmets on the ground as they came off the field. Maranatha trailed 24-14 late in the fourth quarter before their comeback fell short. Whittier Christian’s Grant Escobar and Cody Bronkar led the way for the Heralds. Escobar scored on runs of 70 and 9 yards to finish with eight carries and 91 yards. Bronkar had 111 yards on seven catches and scored on a recovered fumble in the end zone. Maranatha’s Andrew Elffers completed 11 of 19 passes for 199 yards but was sacked five times. Omar Younger scored on runs of 72 and 3 yards and Clifton Martin connected for a 53-yard touchdown pass from Elffers.

Muir 49, Glendale 10 — Tairen Owens had a four-yard touchdown run but he had a 62 and 55-yard punt returns called back for clipping. Quarterback Mark Samuels threw for a touchdown and ran for another. Darick Holmes broke a 52 yard touchdown run for the Mustangs. Charles Clayton recovered a blocked punt in the end zone for a touchdown. We knew Muir would win big, right?

Pasadena 27, Burbank 21 — Brandon Cox had four total touchdowns (two air, two ground) despite playing with an injured back. Pasadena took a commanding lead 27-7 in the third quarter. Marcus Green had seven catches for 148 yards and a touchdown. Looks like Pasadena is making waves.

Arcadia 49, Hoover 7 — Arcadia scored on the first play with a 73-yard touchdown pass from Myles Carr to Alex McElwee. Carr finished with 159 yards and three touchdowns on 8 of 15 passing. The starters were pulled in the first half. Running back Jake Madel had eight carries for 90 yards and a touchdown. Rodney Arnett finished with 100 yards on six carries and a touchdown. Arcadia finished with 427 total yards and held Hoover to 136 total yards.

Monrovia 48, Blair 0 — Don’t really have to get into this one after Blair suited only 18 kids. Ouch.

South Pasadena 21, La Canada 6 — Sean Magill rushed for 86 yards on 11 carries and scored two touchdowns. Also, Telanto Harvey had two interceptions and recorded a 40-yard touchdown reception from Conor Bednarski. La Canada’s Matt Jones went 16 of 26 with 176 yards and ran for the Spartans’ lone score from 4 yards out.

San Marino 24, Temple City 13 — San Mario’s Kwame Do had 14 carries for 101 yards and two receptions for 56 yards, including a 50-yard touchdown catch from QB Matt Wofford, who completed 6 of 12 passes for 156 yards. He also rushed for a touchdown. Nick Gott had two sacks, a forced fumble and a blocked field goal and Garrett Glazier returned a blocked kick for a 75-yard touchdown score. Temple City’s Anthony Valencia completed 8 of 14 for 162 yards but with two interceptions. Jaime Dea ran for 51 yards and a touchdown.
