Friday Night Aftermath: Arcadia beats CV, 31-7, will go as second-place team in playoffs; PHS finishes third; Muir can hope for at-large berth; La Salle, Cantwell invovled in a brawl after Lancers’ 29-12 loss, details to come.

LA SALLE-CANTWELL BRAWL UPDTAE NO. 2 (1:44 a.m.) We have learned through a source the La Salle football player who was punched was Stjepan Vinski. He is usually No. 56 but switched to 25 for this game.

LA SALLE-CANTWELL BRAWL UPDATE NO. 1 (11:28 p.m.) — Montebello police Sgt. Julio Calleros confirmed there was one arrest for battery on a man affiliated with Cantwell-Sacred Heart. He was led off the field in handcuffs and Calleros confirmed the arrest. From our reporter there who witnessed the whole thing, the brawl erupted after the teams exchanged handshakes. Players then began spatting back and forth, prompting coaching staffs from both teams to meet at the center of the field. Chaos erupted shortly after as people began wrestling, people were knocked to the ground. A La Salle player wearing jersey No. 25 (not listed in any roster on MaxPreps or on La Salle’s athletic website) was knocked down from behind by a person in the melee (this incident occurred five feet from our reporter). Our reporter cannot confirm whether the man arrested for battery is the same man he witnessed making the assault. There were multiple waves of chaos, our reporter said. Police responded with multiple units and an air unit as well. The La Salle player (No. 25) was talked to the most by police, which took statements from a myriad of people, including our reporter Nathan Cambridge. Photos were taken of of the La Salle player’s side of his head. We want to make this clear: the man affiliated with Cantwell was NOT coach, but rather a person from the sidelines or from the stands, according to Cambridge. Our reporter added that the No. 25 kid from La Salle confirmed to him that he was OK. When asked, “Are you OK” the player said, “Yes.” He followed up with, “You’re fine?” and the player responded, “Yes.” We will get more details when they become available.

Friday’s results

Arcadia 31, Crescenta Valley 7 — The Apaches finish as Pacific League co-champions with Burroughs, but the Indians go to the Southeast Division as the No. 1 representative out of the Pacific League, with the Apaches at second, PHS at third and CV at fourth. PHS is third because the Bulldogs won the coin flip between CV and Muir. CV is fourth because the next tiebreaker is head-to-head competition, leaving Muir out in fifth place. The Mustangs, however, could still make the playoffs as the at-large team, and in that scenario would likely face West Covina, the No. 1 team in the Southeast Division. Here’s another wrinkle: Arcadia for the last few weeks has been the No. 2 seed in the Southeast Division. CIF rules, however, state that a second-place team cannot be seeded higher than its league champion. Meaning Arcadia could drop from No. 2 to make room for Burroughs. Pacific League coordinator and CV coach Paul Schilling said there’s a possibility Burroughs could get a No. 4 seed as a league champion (four league champions in the division) with Arcadia at No. 5, perhaps even lower. Crazy, right?

St. Francis 54, Cathedral 8 — St. Francis scored 35 points in the first five minutes of the third quarter. Christian Hess returned the second-half kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown. Cathedral turned the ball over on four consecutive drives and the Golden Knights scored on all four takeaways. Two fumbles were recovered and returned by Matt Casciani and the other was returned by Raul Castillo. Cathedral had just one pass attempt (incomplete) the whole game.

Cantwell-Sacred Heart 29, La Salle 12 — According to our reporter there, the teams were involved in a brawl after the game. I just got a Twitter update that read, “Players and coaches in full scale brawl!” Our reporter just updated me that there’s a strong police presence at Cantwell. Read the Star-News on Saturday for details. According to sources, a police helicopter hovered over the scene as well.

Rio Hondo Prep 49, Webb 7 – Ken Drain records his 100th career win with the Kares as Rio Hondo Prep wins its fifth consecutive Prep League championship. The Kares in that span have lost only one game, to Chadwick in 2008. Quarterback Colby Rivera was 5 of 10 for 101 yards and two touchdowns that included a 57-yard strike to Ty Loomis for a touchdown. The Kares headed into the half with a 35-0 lead and closed the game with two touchdowns.

Chadwick 46, Flintridge Prep 14 — Tough season for the Rebels.

Viewpoint 35, Pasadena Poly 14 — The Panthers are eliminated from the playoffs with the loss.

Bosco Tech 37, Mary Star 12 — The Tigers head to the playoffs as the fourth place team in the Del Rey League, according to Bosco Tech coach Chris Shockley.

    Congratulations to Coach Ken Drain. He has been a huge force behind the success of the Kare football program. Rio Hondo Prep might be the smallest school around, but they play BIG football. Let’s make it 100 tonight!

  • Nate

    Both coaches are wrong, a win by CV would give Muir the 4th place spot, but a win by Arcadia forces a 3 way tie for 3rd place. They Muir beat Pasadena, Pasadena beat CV and CV beat Muir. I’m sure a coin flip would decide the 3rd and 4th playoff spot with the odd man out…

  • Apache Joe

    Arcadia up 31-7 5:00 left in the 4th. Game over.

    Good job Bosco keep up the work GO TIGERS

    Can’t stop that school,I mean really, they have 122 kids in their entire high school.they don’t recruit, no athletic juggernaut but man do they execute

  • steveo

    Cantwell has no class what so ever , this proves my point!

  • Fbfan

    I was at the La Salle Cantwell game last night. I have lost all respect for the Cantwell coaches and players. I was sitting on the Cantwell side and the things I saw and heard were a disgrace. I’m not sure how the brawl started but as the La Salle coaches were trying to get their players out of the mess Cantwell fans ran on the field. The Cantwell coaches were doing little to stop what was going on. They actually seemed to be instigating the situation. I saw what happened to # 25. I wouldn’t be able to identify who assaulted him but I saw one grown man and a man that appeared to be in his 20s punch 25 in the face. A lot of the Cantwell players took off their helmets an were using them as weapons. #6 from Cantwell actually hit 25 on the head with his helmet while 25 had it off. I’m a neutral observer and Cantwell should be ashamed of themselves. Some of the racial slurs I heard in the stands towards La Salle’s African American coaches and players was disgusting. I hope someone has this brawl filmed because I can imagine Cantwell will loose many players for their playoff game. What a disgrace.

  • Observantcat

    Interesting how things ended up at Cantwell. A few years back the same sort of taunting occurred when Monrovia played them in the playoffs. I have never heard the N word used as though it was a word of choice when describing the Monrovia players by the fans at Cantwell. It was pretty ridiculous. You would have thought a private school would have had more control over their fan base. Besides the victory, I remembered that same racial sediment that was in the air.

    Trashy and very Unclassy school.

  • not a fan of cantwell

    Cantwell has no class, they are dirty players and the coaches are just as bad. I saw what they did at the Bosco game. They have horrible parents and fans at the games who get out of control. Hopefully, something will be done to the coaches and the players involved. Because of bad sportsmanship, they shouldn’t be allowed to play in the playoffs.

  • DelRyfan

    I think that the bad sportsmanship in this case is the losing team. Why would a win for The Cardinals be a reason to start a fight? I think you need to look at the fact here. The reputation from La Salle goes back from last year where there were saying racial slurs and comments to the coaches, parents and players. The bad sportsmanship is very apparent. I have been witness to many cardinal games and last night La Salle players charged at The Cardinals. This despicable behavior from their coaches and players should be reprimanded.

  • espie

    to delryfan, cantwell was still playing DIRTY, #17 and #6,, they were winning when they played Bosco. #17 pushed a Bosco player to the ground after he made a touch down.

  • SoftballMom

    DelRyFan: The FACT is that Cantwell parents/fans BATTERED a La Salle student-athlete and were arrested! Enough said! If that isn’t dirty play, I’m not sure what is. I was at the game and can attest that #17 for a FACT was making vulgar gestures and comments to not only our football players, but to members of our girls volleyball team who came out to support. Cantwell is a classless act and should be revoked from playoffs due to their irreprehensible behavior.

  • Tom S

    Maranatha’s in the playoffs. 45 to 7 win over LAB. Running 2nd half clock

  • football fan

    I saw both of these teams play this year against Bosco and I knew this would happen sooner or later. When Bosco played La Salle the LaSalle moms accosted the refs after the game. During the game there was unsportsmanship call after another and the coaches didn’t say a thing to the players. When Cantwell came to Bosco the same thing happened, dirty play after another. Bosco running back busted a long run for a TD, while running through the end zone #17 came from behind shoving him behind busting his lip open. Coaches didn’t say a thing just laughing with him. Not sure where these coaches came from but they are not teaching these boys to respect their schools, the game, or themselves. #17 has the talent to play college football at which level not sure but his approach to the game may cost him dearly. The League needs to look at these schools as well as CIF. Both these coaches need to be fired now and removal of Cantwell from CIF playoffs, they do not represent the Del Rey League the way they should.

  • Football Mom

    These comments are ridiculous and falsely innacurate about Cantwell. I too was in the stands and that’s not at all how it went down. Player #25 came around from the coaches and charged at the Cantwell players. Talk about poor sportsmanship. Its funny how someone quoted that the parents were making comments about their “African American” coach when a percentage of Cantwell’s football coaching staff is African American. Of course no one would talk about how the quarterback from Cantwell received a black eye and one of their coaches was bleeding, and how some of their coaching staff were assaulting Cantwell’s players. It seemed like it was a planned attack. It’s disturbing how 3 boys from La Salle charged at #17 from Cantwell. People need to ask themselves why would Cantwell put their playoffs in jeopardy over a win against La Salle. La Salle has nothing to lose and displayed their true colors by attacking the boys at the end of the game; very poor judgment of character. After all, don’t they come from a “high class area”. So, if there wasn’t a brawl last night after the game would people still be questioning if Cantwell has the right to be in the play offs? The events that took place last night doesn’t represent every family who has a student that attends CSHM. I have a child that attends the school and we are not “TRASHY OR UNCLASSY”.

  • National Enquirer

    Why was the player that seemed to be in the middle of it all, and according to one witness the instigator in Jersey Number 25 when his season number was 56?
    To mask his identity in a Pre planned brawl?

    Just asking!

  • THE TRUTH!

    Time to start stating facts in regards to last nights events. FACT-Cantwells #17 scores his last touchdown of the game and a La Salle player trys to knock him out. Player was given a personal foul. FACT- Cantwell with a chance to run up the score on La Salle instead choses to go into victory formation with over 1 1/2 minutes left in the game.(Classless?? I think not) on next play a La Salle player rushes aggresively towards a Cantwell player(CLASSLESS ACT) , refs dont throw a flag which they should have. FACT- La Salles player #25 along with another La Salle player start the brawl. FACT- Cantwells starting qb gets sucker punched by a La Salle person(Classless).

    Softball mom said that #17 was making vulgar gestures(if this is true thats classless) however it doesn’t give any member of the La Salle side the right to attack him physically. There is a difference between acting stupid and doing something stupid like #25 did from La Salle. #25 is playing the victim card but the fact is that he started the brawl. None of what happened last night would have happened if #25 wouldn’t have started the brawl and before you make another dumb comment im not condoning the brawl and anything that happened during it.

    Unlike fbfans comments about the coaching staffs lets get some facts straight. Fb fan said that it seemed that Cantwell coaches where instigating things. Fact is that the La Salle coaching staff didn’t have restraint themselves and if anything showed more aggresion. Cantwell coaches protected there players and tried to take them out of harms way unlike the La Salle coaches who where to busy running there mouths.

    “What happened out here tonight. I’m ashamed,” La Salle coach Antoine Peterson said. “That’s not what I’m about. I’m about discipline and respect. We will just leave it at what coach said.

    Bosco tech fans said that cantwells parents say a lot of stupid things. Bosco tech fans before you say something negatively about someone else’s fan base you should check your own fans. Your fan base was running there mouths at the cantwell fans and players. Do you remember the “You have no future comment”??? U should because it was yelled out at a player. Im sure most of the people at the game heard it because there was no one cheering or music playing when your fan said it. I know some of your fans where embarrased by that comment but would I say that all your fans are the same? NO You always have some idiot saying dumb things regardless of where you go.

    I am not condoning any of the actions taken by either school but I didn’t like the fact the people are talking out of there you know what and are NOT reporting everything accurately. The article doesn’t state that the La Salle team started the brawl which is fact and that 2 cantwell players where assaulted as well. The qb was sucker punched by a La Salle person.

    There is more stuff to say but I wont say anymore. More details and facts will be reported shortly and the truth will come out.

  • gecko

    At this point it doesn’t matter who started or said what first.

    Going forward, a message has to be sent to players and parents/fans. Whatever school behaves in this manner should be banned from playoff games and forced to forfeit the following season or seasons depending on the outcome of their behavior.

    Players who engage in negative sportsmanship or make racial comments should be red-lettered and identified to potential college recruiters that the player is problematic and considered a hothead and/or racist.

    People like this don’t belong participating in sports.

    Ignorant people who think violence is the only solution to anything and feel they can jump on the field and assault kids shouldn’t be allowed in public.

  • FOOTBALL!!

    LISTEN!! I Played in the La Salle Cantwell game last night. The reason why #25 switched his jersey from #56 to #25 is so we could use him as a full back/receiver/tide end. thats why we changed his number. We made this change four games before we even played Cantwell. So there WAS NO PRE PLANNED BRAWL!! I dont care who started it or what not but when i saw two grown men(possibly dads of players) beating up#25 my teammate thats just disgusting. then seeing cantwell’s security letting them go and trying to get away from it. Thats why our coaches were so mad because they were trying to tell the security guy that it was those two guys that did it. Then thank GOD the cops came and arrested those two men. Also seeing the cantwell’s fans trying to run in and fight us while OUR fans(LSHS) were just watching what was going on and not getting into it. what does that show everyone about cantwell. Just saying.

  • The real truth

    Fights are not an uncommon narrative at football games. Emotions run high. There is no place for it but it happens. The propblem with th La Salle Cantwell fight is that people from Cantwells side, not coaches or players, ran onto the field. Even if 25 or any player started the fight, that doesn’t give an adult the right to come on the field and assault a kid. I was at the game and fault should go to both teams for the fight. La Salle and Cantwell were both disrespectfull. One thing I do know for sure is Cantwells coaches were not doing much to stop the fight. La Salle’s coaches were trying to get their kids off the field.

  • football fan

    To what The Truth Said, I agree with you a Bosco Tech follower did get into a jawing match with #17 and did make a comment like that. I must tell you that was not a Bosco Tech parent and when it got to that point a Bosco Parent stepped in and reminded him that these are kids and we should be happy that they are in school and the other PARENTS around did agree.

    After watching both these teams this year, neither one had any discipline and is a black eye to the Private School League. This should have not happened and neither team here is innocent.

  • John Holzinger

    I’ve attended high school football games for years. My sisters and brothers went to Bishop Amat and I went to their games, home and away, for twenty years or so (Pat Haden, J.K. McKay, and John Sciarra, Paul McDonald etc.). My oldest son went to St. Francis and played football there where they have a code of ethics even for the fans. My son goes to Bosco Tech and my nephew goes to Cantwell.
    I have to admit over the years there have been many changes that I have seen in high school football. Way back after the shaking of hands in the center of the field both teams would go to their respective sides and the home team would turn to their opponents side while they recited their alma mater and likewise when they were done they would turn to their opponent’s side and observe their alma mater. I have rarely seen this done (or at least well) by high school teams lately. It’s as if we do not respect our opponents and it is especially disheartening to see this lack of respect at our Catholic schools.
    I also here all sorts of things from the fans that obviously shouldn’t be said (cussing, taunts, etc.), especially when two Catholic high schools meet. Though we may not be able to control the fan’s tongues, coaches should be able to control their players.
    A case in point was my son who played football for Bosco last year as a freshmen (he chose not to play this year) on the JV team. Against Cantwell’s JV team which Cantwell won easily, the last few minutes of the game was marred by fights. My son felt that they were being started by Cantwell players (who were well ahead and in no danger of losing). My son took it upon himself to go towards the Cantwell sideline and yell at the coaches, in his words “get your players under control”. M Two of them have already been mentioned in previous posts. I’m not going to talk about unsportsmanlike or personal fouls during the game. They happened on both sides. What disturbed me was what was going on after plays were finished, things that were happening on the sidelines and one incident during an injury time out.
    After the one shove in the back half way into the end-zone by a Cantwell player was booed (later called an unsportsmanlike foul)the player who was not in pads turned to the Bosco fans and was gesturing directly to the with a what was wrong with that or what about it gestures with his hands and arms, smiling all the time.
    The second one was when a Bosco student was injured. Both sides of the field admirably took a knee with the exception of the player who had previously shoved the kid in the back. He was on the field with his twelve teammates(who were kneeling) looking in the direction of the injured player doing a little dance while standing.
    Cantwell was definitely the better team this day as the score indicated. But even in the last few minutes when the game outcome had no chance of turning around (it was a rout), Cantwell players (not all)would follow Bosco players halfway to their sidelines, jawing at them.
    It was the fans reaction to this last that got the third one involved as he came off the field and on the sidelines he was blowing kisses to the opposing fans and pointing to the score board this continued until a coach finally talked to him, though he smiled through the whole talk by the coach. (In years past I would have expected the coach to grab him by the face mask and give him a real lesson in how to be sportsmanlike.)
    I shouldn’t have been surprised when the three athletes mentioned above then met together at the end of Cantwell’s line for handshaking. It may just be these three that tarnish a school’s reputation.
    A Cantwell Jersey number I will call out was 51. As I watched the game, more than once, I saw him show good sportsmanship (helping an opposing player up or a tap on the shoulder). He should be applauded.
    Our Catholic schools, our teachers, our coaches and us parents ultimately should be striving to build our young people up to show good sportsmanship, strong young people of character and good Catholics.
    When us fans(whether parents, friends,etc.) don’t do our part there are consequences. Like I tell my boys there are always consequences for your actions. y son’s coaches immediately pulled my son from the game and gave him a dressing down that brought him to tears. His coach told me later, and I totally agreed, that a student has to remember his place even though our coaches agreed with his observations.
    With this background, two weeks ago I was going to write a letter to the principal at Cantwell about the Cantwell/Bosco Tech football game this year but decided against it. I look back and maybe I should have after what happened this week.
    On my phone I entered the numbers of 3 players (one of which was injured or at least was not in pads).

  • THE TRUTH

    Football said ” I dont care who started it or what not ” Really? you dont care? You should, and so should your coaching staff, after all your head coach said “this is not what he is about”. Maybe if you did care you would have told your teamates to keep quiet, shake hands, and walk of the field. Your teammate and his stupid actions endangered a lot of people at that game for both sides. Hopefully now you will care and you will make sure to be a leader on your team.

    As far as your comments about security. Security detained people until the police came and then the police took over. Ur fans are no saints some of them did try to cross and they where cut off. Its not like your team had a lot of fans in the stands to begin with.

    There was a man who was arrested and if he did hit anybody he should be charged and prosecuted. It doesn’t matter if the person assaulted is a grown up or a kid, there is no room for violence anywhere.

    “what does that show everyone about cantwell. Just saying.”
    Before you say anything about anyone you should look at your own team and coaches first. Your teammates started something and put you and your teammates in harms way. You should be mad at #25 and the other guy who started the brawl. There stupidity put YOU IN DANGER.Once again, none of this would have happened, if your teamates held there composure. If we take your statement for what it is I would say that everyone now knows that LSHS is a bunch of sore losers who start riots. Is this correct? No its not. Please think before you speak. I seriously doubt that your a dumb young man. Your mad and upset and you should be but to not care or blame other people for the aftermath that was created by your teamates is wrong and you should care. Once again I DONT condone anything that happened during the brawl.

    “One thing I do know for sure is Cantwells coaches were not doing much to stop the fight.” Really, real truth, A coach was bleeding because he was trying to seperate the kids. According to your truth maybe the cantwell coach ran into the locker room during the brawl and got some fake blood from halloween and put it on for show. Guess the real truth wasn’t really real. If you read football mom statement.
    “Of course no one would talk about how the quarterback from Cantwell received a black eye and one of their coaches was bleeding, and how some of their coaching staff were assaulting Cantwell’s players”.

    One other note that people still haven’t stated. The game was over and people where walking out of the stands when this started. Im not saying that it was right for any of them to charge the field but as most parents would do. If someone is attacking your child are you just gonna stand there and let it happen or are you gonna protect your child. In hindsight its easy for all of us to second guess the events that transpired but at the time of the moment emotions take over instead of common sense. We should all be able to control our emotions. If we all controlled our emotions then #25 and the other LSHS player wouldn’t have created the chaos that they did.

  • Angry fan

    This is so stupid………all you people are not stating the real facts… number 25 started drama in the 1 st quarter, threw a tantrum threw his helmet. he should have been ejected then……when he came our pushed his coach whom had already grabbed him like a horse collar. I’m sorry that alone was bad behavior……and no one should put there hands on any child….La Salle attacked Cantwell with their back towards them Classless…..and all these Bosch parents out there why don’t any of you printout how many junior varsity kids were beat up on the day before varsity played one of our kids went in an ambulance on a heap hit……Fact….All you people on here are just as classless as La Salle acted Friday night.

  • Angry fan

    Reading more of these blogs only upsets me more…..Someone talks about the Cantwell coaches not helping one of the coaches breaking the fights up was flipped over by the La Salle17 and 25………Then one of those prize possessions pushed a female worker on the field. @ Gecko you have nerve to imply that Cantwell was the only one making racial slurs the La Salle kids and coaches called our kids beaners and your illegal kid spit in one of our kids faces before using his helmet as a weapon………Cantwell was the victim here all because LaSalle coulldnt take the loss. this just upsets me because you people make Cantwell look so bad when it’s not. One thing I will agree with is that adults shouldn’t touch any child and their were a few adults on the La Salle sideline who were not taken in handcuffs as for punishment for any of these kids it should be number 25,(56,50, or 90) whatever number your institution is claiming he is should be held accountable and punished to the fullest extent. what code of ethics did he have

  • sports fan

    2 of cantwells parents got arrested for assault on a minor on the opposing team. no character

    ..Cantwell PLAYS DIRTY !!,, AND THEIR COACHES DONT CARE.. SHAME ON YOU PARENTS TO LET YOUR CHILD ACT LIKE AN IDIOT YOU MUST BE SOOOOO PROUD !!!

  • What

    Bosco played both of these schools. I’m not saying our parents did not open there mouths but everyone has a couple of those parents, After the La Salle game about 20 parents waited for the refs and yelled at them as they walked to there cars very very CLASSLESS. Maybe they should have been talking to the coaches and get them to dicipline the players before they come into games. Cantwell, It’s bad when a parent goes on the field and beats down a player! they had alot of parents that liked to talk to the othersides players. The Cantwell players were the ones that has NO CLASS! They would follow players to the sideline and talking to the fans they were horrible. Cantwell really can’t say that they are not at fault for any of this that happened, you guys have two parents that were locked up by Montebello PD not La Salle. Both teams have some fault in what happened, so both teams should face some kind of dicipline from league or CIF. May not be this year but some time.

    The Truth..wouldn’t know truth if it fall out of the sky and knocked him on the head. Expects us to believe that just out of the blue,for no reason a Bosco fan heckled the Cantwell team. Yeah right..
    Anyone who has played Cantwell within the past 2yrs. all say that they saw this coming. Cantwell has done well in building their reputation of bad sportsmanship conduct and when their unsportsmanship like conduct is responded to in the same manner they suddenly become the hey it’s not our fault victims.
    In this scenario, no matter what side.
    Two wrongs do not make a right.
    Zero tolerance for this behavior.

  • THE TRUTH

    It just goes to show that people like talking out of there you know what without knowing what they are talking about. More facts need to get straightened out.
    Fact- Only one person was arrested and the person arrested wasn’t a parent(Bet you feel stupid now). There might be more arrest and those people will be from LSHS.

    “I’m not saying our parents did not open there mouths but everyone has a couple of those parents”
    This is coming from one of your fans techmen so I say to you… “You wouldn’t know truth if it fell out of the sky and knocked you on the head” Your fan said it, and like I said before, some of your fans where embarrased by that IDIOT. Who knows maybe it was you.

    “Cantwell has done well in building their reputation of bad sportsmanship conduct and when their unsportsmanship like conduct is responded to in the same manner they suddenly become the hey it’s not our fault victims.” FACT- Talking crap and physically hitting someone are two completely differnt things. Did cantwell throw the first punch? NO! Did LSHS lose there composure and start a brawl? YES

    Im not saying that the cantwell kids didn’t mouth off(your fans say they did). I did say that they didn’t start the fight. Just because a weak minded individual(#25)and his fellow teammate where sore losers it doesn’t give them a right to hit someone. I could call you stupid but that doesn’t give you the right to hit me. If you did hit me, it would prove my point that your a weak minded individual,however if you would say that i was retarded that would continue the foolishness of words. Talking crap on the football field(sports in general) has gone on and will go one. Its part of the game.

    PHYSICALLY HITTING SOMEONE CROSSES THE LINE
    Cantwell didn’t throw the first punch LSHS did.

    If any of you who are saying that a parent is wrong for hitting a kid,I ask you this question. If #25 was beating up your son would you just stand there or would you go protect your son? Those of you who say that you would stand there and let your child be beat would be LIARS! Once again the person arrested wasn’t a parent.

    I DONT CONDONE WHAT HAPPENED. Im just proving a point.

    Wow, what happened to Cathedral this season. did Retig get injured part way thru the season and they had to turn to a freshman QB? I lost track of what was going on there.

  • techmen

    Hey, the so called “The Truth” talks about running off at the mouth. How long of a post do you need to excuse & defend Cantwells bad rep & behavior?
    And here’s a couple of other cliches for you.
    “The truth hurts” and “You can’t handle the truth”
    Neither Cantwell or La Salle are innocent in their behavior.
    We’ll just have to wait for the details of the Police investigation & CIF consequences.

    I Am A STUDENT AT CANTWELL SACRED HEART
    I WAS THERE AT THE GAME I SAW EVERYTHING
    Stop calling us names and bad sportsmanship a parent did not hit anyone
    Both teams lost it and both teams threw punches they are human
    I apologize on behalf
    But how dare can this person report and only get the la salle POV
    Yes #25 may have gotten hit but so did our players! I saw them at school today with bumps and bruises!
    I saw three of my claSsmates get punched in the face by la salle players
    Get our point of view! We were there too we are victims too
    Ls salle can’t handle the fact they lost and they aren’t making it to play offs
    I saw la salle coaches encourage some players to go on the field and fight!
    Stop talking crap about my school especially you people who don’t know us
    I love my school and will stand beside it

  • THE TRUTH

    “The truth hurts” and “You can’t handle the truth”
    LOL Techman you should understand your own cliches.
    The truth hurts- Your fan said your fans mouth off too.
    You cant handle the truth- Obviously you cant and your resorting to stupid comments and cliches that you obviously dont understand.

    Am I defending Cantwells bad rep and behavior?
    Well lets see… Yes and no.

    People like you give Cantwell a bad rap. If we took your words for anything, it would be a complete misrepresentation of something, that you dont know anything about. A Cantwell parent mouths off so now cantwell is a bad school. Are you freaking kidding me? If I took your analogy then I would say Bosco Tech is pathethic especially when one of your fans yelled out at a cantwell player that he had no future.

    Are there some bad apples at Cantwell? There are bad apples everywhere including your beloved Bosco Tech but does that make your school or Cantwell bad? UMMMM NO!

    Did I say that I condoned what happened? Umm let me copy and paste somethings I put on my previous posts. Obviously you must be blind or cant read or you forgot this.
    “I am not condoning any of the actions taken by either school but I didn’t like the fact the people are talking out of there you know what and are NOT reporting everything accurately.”
    ” before you make another dumb comment im not condoning the brawl and anything that happened during it”
    ” Once again I DONT condone anything that happened during the brawl.”
    “I DONT CONDONE WHAT HAPPENED. Im just proving a point.”

    Oooh before I forget…I DONT CONDONE THE BEHAVIOR FOR EITHER SCHOOL!! CAN U READ THIS LOUD AND CLEAR TECHMAN?

    I only run my mouth because I have I have to simplify things for people like you who have trouble with reading comprehension. Obviously I should run it longer and simplify it even more because you dont get it and probrably never will. As tom cruise said at the end of his scene of “you cant handle the truth” ” The witness is excused”

    Just in case you forgot after reading that last paragraph techman. I DONT CONDONE THE BEHAVIOR FOR EITHER SCHOOL!! CAN U READ THIS LOUD AND CLEAR TECHMAN?

  • techmen

    Oh, the Truth you make me laugh!
    These running off the mouth rants of yours are getting old and boring. Are you cluless to realize that your ravings display the bad attitude and representation that got Cantwell into this trouble to begin with.
    Guess you can’t handle a little criticism!
    (or the TRUTH)
    It just goes to show:
    YOU LIKE TO DISH IT OUT, BUT YOU JUST CAN’T TAKE IT

    Gonzales and his school spirit is admirable and as you yourself writes, Both teams lost it & threw punches.
    So regardless of which side started the insults that lead to the throwing of punches and an all out brawl.
    The bottom line is it is UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR.

  • THE TRUTH

    Techmen Ive been laughing at you since your first post. Bad attitude? I cant handle criticism? LOL

    I can dish it but cant take it? I can take it when you have something to say thats valid. Most of your points have been shot down by others not including me. Its obvious you didn’t read this part in my previous post so ill put up again for you.
    I DONT CONDONE THE BEHAVIOR FOR EITHER SCHOOL!! Which means this “The bottom line is it is UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR.” Do you get it now?

  • Enough

    ok this has gone out of hand now. its almost been a week since the game and brawl and people are still getting upset over it. WHATS DONE IS DONE AND NOTHING CAN CHANGE IT…ITS OVER..EVERYONE GET ON WITH YOUR LIVES. im sure you have better things to do than just whine and complain about some brawl that both teams took part of. its good to see people stand up for their school but enough is enough.

  • techmen

    Yeah the truth..
    Just another post of you being unorginal.
    Here are some of your blog points:
    1) Trash talk is part of the game
    It maybe but when an official catches it and the jabs & punches that occur in the pile-ups he reprimands that player for their unsportsmanlike behavior.
    Otherwise look what can it lead to.
    2) What if someone was hitting on your son
    If player offense call on officials to do their job.
    If adult offense, have camera in hand along w/fellow parents calling for security and arrest.
    Your idea of it’s all part of the game or how the game is played. Is an opposing view of what is written on the CIF website. (pg.5&6)
    Hopefully, you’ll get the point of what H.S. sports is all about.
    You may not CONDONE what occurred, but you spent alot of time justifying it.

  • THE TRUTH

    Techmen your as un-orignal as a brown paper bag.
    Your first point is right. Player trash talks or late hits another player he should be flagged. During the game the refs let some stuff go that they shouldn’t have but they did flag players. If a player gets uncontrollable they should be kicked out of the game. The Brawl started at the end of the handshake after the game was over. You where not there so you are just guessing or assuming what happened during or after the game.
    Do I condone the trash talking NO. Does it happen? Yes Do college and professional players do it? Yes

    Your 2nd point of saying I dont know what HS sports is about is as stupid as most of your comments. “Pursuing victory with honor” is a cif motto. Did these two teams do that in this game? No they didn’t but it doesn’t mean that you and all these other people talking bad about Cantwell have a right to say the things you say.

    “Cantwell, It’s bad when a parent goes on the field and beats down a player! they had alot of parents that liked to talk to the othersides players. The Cantwell players were the ones that has NO CLASS! They would follow players to the sideline and talking to the fans they were horrible. Cantwell really can’t say that they are not at fault for any of this that happened, you guys have two parents that were locked up by Montebello PD not La Salle.”

    Did a parent go down and beat down on a player? NO
    Did every Cantwell player participate in the trash talking? NO
    Did all the parents participate in trash talking? NO
    Where you there at the game? NO
    Did one of your parents yell out to a cantwell player that he had no future? Yes
    Do I think Bosco Tech is a bad because of this idiotic behavior? NO One or a few bad apples do not represent Bosco Tech as a whole. Are you following this now? One or a few people do not represent a whole entire school. Is it syncing in yet?
    Did cantwell have two parents who where locked up? NO
    The only person arrested was not a parent.

    The only thing im justifying and defending is people like you talking out of there you know what and saying things that they shouldn’t. If you would have said both teams should be reprimanded or punished for there actions I would have agreed with you but instead you chose to put your unfactual comments and statements along with both schools should be punished.

    High school football fans have a great time cheering on your teams tommorow night for the playoffs.

    “Enough said” your right im done with this conversation.

    Techman I wish you and your team good luck in the playoffs.

  • Football follower

    Once again. That was not a Bosco Tech parent that yelled it. He was a father from one of the sister schools and yes the Bosco Tech fans agree that was wrong of him to say that as an adult.

  • techmen

    The truth.. another post and your just all over the place that I’m not gonna bother going there. It is good to see that you’ve become familiar with CIF motto,(maybe you took a look at site) but knowing you. You’ll say you knew it all along.
    Interesting to read your thrown in insults and then you close with “Good Luck”.
    Let’s just say that this Unfortunate Event is a lesson to all sports parents.
    And the “Good Luck” right back at ya.
