Week 5 high school football predictions ugly or not

You’d think I’d be getting better at this, but apparently I’m not. I only went 20-12 in Week 4, my worst week of the season, bringing my season record to 130-42-1, with 2 margins exactly right. This week, I’ll put the blindfold on again and throw the darts at the schedule and see how I do.

CITRUS BELT LEAGUE
Cajon 52, Eisenhower 12
Redlands East Valley 41, Carter 6
Citrus Valley 42, Miller 20

Cajon’s epic 2-point conversion fail

It meant nothing to the final outcome, but Cajon failed on a 2-point conversion on the final touchdown in last week’s 46-6 win over Miller and coach Nick Rogers says, “I can laugh about it now.”

Here’s the situation. Cajon goes for 2 after every touchdown because they don’t have a placekicker.
On this situation, the Cowboys tried a fade to the corner of the end zone, pass was completed, but offensive pass interference was called. Cajon went back to the same play and again, the pass was completed but offensive pass interference was called, butting the ball back to the 33 now. Rogers was visibly upset, and had to talk the officials out of getting an unsportsmanlike conduct call against him, which would have pushed the ball back to the 48. As it was, it was on the 33 and at that point, Rogers threw up his hands and ordered quarterback Jayden Daniels to take a knee.
I’ve never heard that happening before. I’ve seen a team taking a knee in the third quarter of a game. Teams take knees on kickoff returns or interception returns all the time. But on a two-point conversion? And that turned out to be the only conversion that Cajon failed on, in six touchdowns.

Week 3 San Bernardino County football predictions

I had a decent week in Week 2, going 25-8 and I am now 84-22-1 for the season. But for some reason I struggled at the end, missing five of the last six games on the list (I am claiming dementia). However, I did get one margin exactly right, when I said Los Osos would beat Alta Loma 20-16 and it was actually 19-15, giving me 2 exact margins for the season. I had one score right, but I had the wrong team winning when I said Sultana would win 21-14, and they lost 21-14, so that doesn’t count. Here are this week’s picks:

Apple Valley 26, Victor Valley 21
Barstow 28, Sultana 20
Cajon 35, Paso Robles 31
Chino 44, Los Osos 28
Colony 35, Norte Vista 17
Colton 16, Chaffey 14
Covina 37, Montclair 16
Don Lugo 27, Northview 22
Eisenhower 40, Rialto 22
Fontana 26, Miller 20
Grand Terrace 42, Vista del Lago 7
Great Oak 35, Ayala 27
Jurupa Valley 30, Arroyo Valley 20
Kaiser 21, Palm Springs 19
Lakeside 35, Bloomington 8
Mater Dei 49, Upland 21
Moreno Valley 42, Jurupa Hills 22

Shawn Moore, Miller get first win with new philosophy

Miller got its first win of the season under new coach Shawn Moore last week, a 42-15 rout of Moreno Valley Vista Del Lago.
“I think it was a good all-around win. We did a lot of things well,” Moore said.
Miller looks a little different on offense this year, even with senior star athlete/quarterback Malik Flowers returning from Justin Nast’s team last year.
Moore has chosen to play Flowers at receiver and running back, instead of quarterback, because that’s where Flowers will more than likely play in college. He doesn’t want to hinder Flowers’ recruitment by playing him at another position.
How has that worked?
In Miller’s opener, Flowers caught four passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns in a 36-15 loss to Perris. Last week, he rushed for 227 yards and three touchdowns.
But Moore says another running back, senior Kenny Thompson is also a standout talent.
“He’s a guy hardly anyone knows about,” Moore said.

Rialto gets first win

Rialto football got its first win last week, and it was the first win for coach Robert Mitchell in his first year as the head coach at his alma mater. But the 43-34 win over Bloomington was also snapped a 14-game losing streak for the program.
Rialto’s scoring outburst came after getting shut out in its first two games and nearly equaled the 46 points they scored in all of 2015.
Quarterback Tyler Gonzalez threw three touchdowns and one interception in the game after throwing four interceptions and of course no touchdowns in the first two games.
Leo Torres scored two rushing touchdowns, Tim Key had a receiving touchdown and also returned a kickoff for a second touchdown.
