STAR-NEWS SUPER 23 RANKINGS
1. St. Francis (7-0) –
The Knights continue to look Golden, enacting on some revenge against Cathedral with a 31-21 win. They host Harvard-Westlake this week, needing a win to set up a first-place showdown at highly-rated Serra.
2. Monrovia (6-1) – The Wildcats have opened Rio Hondo League play by outscoring the opposition, 100-0. Don’t expect any challenge until their regular season finale at San Marino.
3. Muir (6-1) – The Mustangs beat Burbank, 24-17, in a battle of what most believe are the top two teams in the Pacific League. But Muir won’t have the title locked up before beating 1-2 showdowns vs. Arcadia and Crescenta Valley the next two weeks. Go with Muir in both.
4. Rio Hondo Prep (6-1) – The Kares continue to roll, routing Flintridge Prep, 63-22.
5. San Marino (6-1) – The Titans have scored 39 points or more in six of their seven games, including a 55-7 victory over La Canada last week. San Marino looks like Monrovia’s only challenger in both the Rio Hondo League and Mid-Valley Division.
6. La Salle (5-2) – The Lancers followed up last week’s scare with an easy win over Mary Star. They play for the league title this week against Bishop Montgomery/
7. Pasadena Poly (6-0) – Poly off to its best start in recent memory. Not only are the Panthers winning, but winning big. Their season rests next week when they host Rio.
8. Rosemead (6-1) – Matt Koffler’s back with the Panthers, which have put together a six-game win streak.
9. Arcadia (5-2) – The Apaches have taken care of business to put themselves in position to earn a league title and a playoff spot. Now they need to step up against the Pacific League’s best, beginning Friday against favorite Muir.

  • Titan Football Fan

    Off week this week; otherwise known as Blair. Gotta respect a football player that keeps strappin’ it up despite getting pummeled every game. Titans will prepare in practice just like every week — never stop working. TC next week and then Monrovia. Players and coaches will be ready.

    That’s a very optimistic way of describing Arcadia’s chances. What you said is technically true, but you could have more plausibly said that because they’ve beaten up on the worst three PL teams, they aren’t mathematically eliminated yet. 3-1 is nice at this stage, but when that 1 is a 37 point loss to Burbank, playoffs are pretty unrealistic. I would be very surprised if they won another game this year.

      They’ve done what they had to do, beat the teams they should. Now we’ll see if they can step up and beat teams they are not expected to to. They’ll be underdogs in the next three, so we shall see.
