Star-News Pick’em: Your picks and ours

Keith Lair and I will go head-to-head in the Star-News Pick’em. Here is this week’s predictions along with how we did last week.

Last Week: Ramirez (12-5); Lair (10-7)
Season: Ramirez (18-10); Lair (17-11)

Last Week: I was able to pick up two games on Keith, getting him with wins by Gabrielino over Bosco Tech; Cerritos Valley Christian over Duarte and Poly over Saddleback Valley Christian. He got me back with South Pasadena over San Gabriel. We both miss Ayala beating Monrovia. But who got that one?
This Week: The big game this week is San Gabriel visiting San Dimas, a rematch of last season’s CIF-SS semifinal, won by San Gabriel. I’m going with San Dimas in this early-season tilt. The Saints are scoring at a high rate, and although SG can score too, I’m not sure they can keep up. But I’ll be there to witness it. Elsewhere, we have a possible playoff preview with Maranatha at Azusa and expect Monrovia to get well against Arcadia. Muir, meanwhile, has another impossible task, traveling to Rancho Cucamonga.
