A little more than a month ago, Redlands East Valley’s football team won its Division II state championship.
Now, you don’t have to wait until next football season to buy your championship gear, you can order it now. Apparently, they will be available for pickup on February 13, available in red or black. Also available through the team’s web site are the Citrus Belt League champion gear, which I’m guessing is not quite as hot a seller as the state championship gear.
The latest CIF-SS boys soccer rankings. Yes, Fontana is still not in it. I was told by the Fontana coach last week, that because he doesn’t subscribe to socalsoccer.org, he’s not able to input results, so his resume (at least according to that site) doesn’t look very impressive.
My thought: It seems like a weak excuse. If you look, many of the leagues are missing games.
Before last week, Cajon girls coach Mark Lehman was lamenting the fact his team shouldn’t be in the Open Division. So his team loses to a very good Eisenhower team (albeit one that wasn’t in the Open Division watch list), and what happens? Eisenhower, with only 1 loss, is not in the Open Division watch list, but Cajon remains on the watch list even though the Cowgirls dropped in the 1A rankings. I guess Ike will have to beat Cajon for a second time for voters to really take notice.
Although IE defense was not was just as good as the offense in a 69-16 win over Orange County on Saturday. OC managed barely over 100 yards of total offense. Of OC’s 16 points, only 3 of them were from the OC offense: as field goal on their opening drive. Since then, essentially nothing. 13 of the points came from OC’s defense and special teams.
Of the 9 IE TDs, San Bernardino County represented well. 1 was on a pass from San Gorgonio’s Nate Meadors, another was scored by Cajon’s Armani Green. Chino Hills’ Trent Goens also wreaked havoc, getting pressure on the OC quarterbacks.
San Gorgonio’s Nate Meadors (who is undecided on a college) threw 3 passes for 63 yards and a touchdown, caught six passes for 43 yards, ran twice for 7 yards and returned kicks in Inland Empire’s 69-16 win over Orange County on Saturday
Christian Nunez scored two goals for the San Gorgonio Spartans (7-6-6 overall, 2-2 league) in the San Andreas League victory, 2-1, over the Indian Springs Coyotes (10-1-5, 1-1-2).
“We are better than our record would show. We just haven’t put it together until today,” said Spartans head coach Adrian Villalobos. “The San Andreas League is tough, anyone can beat anyone on any given day.”
Manuel Perez and Carlos Ortiz were each credited with an assist for the Spartans.
“Today, our offense was our best defense,” Villalobos said. “We out hustled them and we had a lot of possessions.”
The Spartans will play at 3:15 p.m. Wednesday against Rialto, who is in first place of the league. It will end the first round of league play.
The game also resulted in the first loss of the season for the Coyotes.
