There was a lot of fuzz last last year when Monrovia was supposed to host the Mid-Valley Division championship at its brand new home field against Whittier Christian. Those plans were scrapped because Whittier Christian was concerned the Wildcats didn’t have enough seating available on the visitin side, coupled by low-standing bleachers that provided an obstructed view. The game subsequently was moved to Arcadia where the game drew a standing-room only crowd. Monrovia again is the designated home team against San Gabriel in the Mid-Valley Division championship on Saturday at 7:30 p.m., only this time the Wildcats will actually host the title game. Monrovia officials said the stadium’s seating issue from last year is just that, so last year. Monrovia athletic director Randy Bell said seating capacity on the visiting side is 1,000 (2,500-3,000 on the home side) and that the visiting bleachers were raised over the summer, eliminating the obstructive view. Bell added that “if we need to go higher we might do that. We’ll see.” Monrovia learned its lesson from last year of not fixing its visiting bleachers. It was too bad the Wildcats couldn’t play their title game at home at their new stadium, and you can bet Monrovia will not let it happen again. So if Monrovia says it will add more seats if needed, you can bet they’ll do exactly that. I like that championship football games are played at the school’s home stadiums. The Pac-5 Division can have Angel Stadium, I’ll take the neighborhood field any day of the week, and twice on Sunday. The atmosphere at Arcadia last year for the Mid-Valley Division final was electric, but it looked a bit off with Arcadia logos all over the place as Monrovia routed Whittier Christian. I can already imagine the mile-long of cars lining up at or near Monrovia High firing up the BBQ grill (chicken for me) and fans from both sides arriving there early to start the party as the anticipation builds. I can’t wait.
