San Bernardino-Pacific, pitting the two oldest public schools in San Bernardino, is one of the longest-standing football rivalries in the Inland Empire. But it is changing this year.
Part of it was obvious. Both teams were leaving the San Andreas League, where they had battled for many years, to the Mountain Valley League, where they would play four Riverside County schools.
A change is that the league is much more competitive, so Pacific and SBHS are actually in the thick of the playoff hunt entering this game. Depending on how other games finish, San Bernardino could finish as high as 2nd, while Pacific could be as high as a tie for 3rd.
But there’s more to it. San Bernardino found an old trophy used for the game, and added recent scores to it and will present it to the winner of the game. The trophy is actually called the “Sun-Telegram Bowl”, and was apparently awarded by the predecessor of The Sun, the Sun-Telegram. For the record, pacific leads the all-time series, 22-18
And on Thursday, the coaching staffs and about 40 players per team met at a pizza place about halfway between the two schools for a pregame luncheon.
“I didn’t know what to expect,” Pacific coach Mike Aragon said of the luncheon.. “But the players really get along, And I talked to coach (Jeff) Imbriani.. I told him to make sure that trophy is cleaned up before they give it to us on Friday.”
There were a few things I wanted to mention, following up from Friday night’s Jurupa Hills 31-21 victory over Rim of the World in a Mountain Valley League showdown.
- At the least, it should move No. 3 Jurupa Hills past No. 2 Rim in the East Valley Division rankings.
- The size of the crowd there was a little disappointing to me, although it was not homecoming, nor was it senior night. Perhaps as the newest school in town, Jurupa Hills has trouble growing a fan base especially with perennial power Kaiser also in South Fontana. I understand why coach Ed McMillon is trying to convince people in the community to watch his team play. They are exciting and good and they should get some more support.
- Jurupa Hills had a ridiculous number of penalties, which will need to be corrected if the Spartans want to win a CIF title. By my count, Jurupa Hills had 15 penalties for 140 yards. Rim? They had just three for 20 yards.
- Jurupa Hills’ defense was very impressive, including senior linebacker Deshire Singleton, as well as Nick Navarro, who had his second pick-6 in the last two weeks (a fact I failed to mention in the story). When you hold Rim to 225 yards rushing on 51 carries as a team and intercept them 3 times, you’re doing something right.
- The Jurupa Hills offense stagnated at times, but then showed the ability to break open at any given time.
- One thing I did mention in the story, but bears repeating: Neither of these teams won league last year, but both made at least the CIF-SS semifinals. Rim could still make a playoff run like it did despite losing twice in league last year.
- Can these teams face each other again? It’s possible. But if Jurupa Hills wins out, they will get the No. 2 seed (assuming No. 1 St. Margaret’s wins out). If, as a result, Rim gets the league’s second entry into the playoffs, Rim would have to be on the other half of the bracket from Jurupa Hills and could be no better than a 4 seed. Last year, there were two Mountain Valley League rematches in the playoffs: and both times the team that lost in league, won in the playoffs: Jurupa Hills beating Citrus Valley in the second round, and Rim beating Banning in the semifinals.
