Sorry about the lateness of this – was in Michigan this weekend at the Michigan-Notre Dame game. But I’m back, I’m happy and raring to go.
1. Rancho Cucamonga (2-0)
Another game, another routine win. The Cougars haven’t been jaw-droppingly good yet, but they are getting the job done and getting the young defense ready for the Baseline League.
2. Redlands East Valley (1-0)
Great first game against a traditionally strong Clovis East team. Definitely look to be head and shoulders above everyone else in the Citrus Belt League.
3. Chino Hills (2-0)
The Huskies should be No. 2 behind Rancho in the Central Division polls later today and quite frankly, look really good right now. It’s not easy to manhandle Chaffey the way Chino Hills did.
4. Barstow (1-0)
An expected easy win against Rialto and Colton’s loss has the Aztecs in pretty elite position. They have a tough test with Paraclete though.
5. Kaiser (1-0)
The defense subdued Apple Valley in Phil Zelaya’s debut, as you would expect, but a game against nemsis Riverside North – which bombed Los Osos – awaits.
6. Etiwanda (2-0)
The Eagles’ offense might be the most explosive in the area. Yes, maybe even better than Rancho’s. We’ll truly get to see the Eagles under fire this week at Norco.
7. Cajon (2-0)
The Cowboys and their stable of Kazees haven’t been tested yet, scoring 111 points in their first two games. Sultana won’t provide much of a test this week either.
8. Upland (2-0)
The Miller game wasn’t a fluke, as the Highlander defense was even more stingy against Glendora. Upland’s defense definitely looks nasty at this point.
9. Colton (0-1)
Vista Murrieta is a good team, so Colton shouldn’t feel that bad about the loss. Quarterback Jordan Mixon showed some jitters and the offensive line has some kinks to work out.
10. Serrano (1-1)
I was extremely close to putting San G in this spot after their domination of Hesperia, but I went with the Diamondbacks. Defense looks good, but the offense needs to produce more than 13 points in two games.
Missed the cut: San Gorgonio (1-0), Chaffey (1-1), Los Osos (1-1), Arroyo Valley (1-0)
