|Week 2 was not a good week for me picking games. I only went 21-12 for the week, and am 77-20 picking winners in San Bernardino County games so far this season. I had more losses this week than I did in the first two weeks combined. Perhaps I went out on a limb too much in picking Bloomington, Pacific and Jurupa Hills to win. I have come close, but have not yet exactly nailed a margin of victory or score. The closest call on Friday was Vista Murrieta-Yucaipa, which I predicted Vista Murrieta would win 52-14, and turned out 52-13. Close, but no cigar.

Here are the Thursday scores, and they were not good for me.
After going a combined 56-8 picking winners the first two weeks, I have started the third week, aka Week 2, 0-3
- Chino Hills 30, Tesoro 17
- Los Osos 35, Redlands 14
- Yucca Valley 20, Citrus Valley 7
Here is a recap of Week 1 prep football scores and how my predictions went:
For the week, I went 30-5, for the season, 56-8, not bad. I have yet to get an exact score correct or get an exact margin correct, however.
Here are all the scores:
Redlands East Valley 50, Summit 0
Alta Loma 30, Montclair 6
Here are the actual San Bernardino County scores from Week 0;
My prediction record: 26-3. Exact margin: 0. Exact score 0.

Here are some results from CIF-SS wrestling and girls basketball from Saturday.
Before I get into the list of results. one of the top wrestling matches of the day involving a San Bernardino County wrestler was the heavyweight final at the Eastern Division at Oak Hills There, Carter’s Kenny Clark edged out Los Alamitos’ Alex Redmond 2-1 in the final.
Why is this significant? First, Clark is ranked No. 5 in the state and Redmond is No. 11. Second, both Clark and Redmond signed earlier this month with UCLA to play football. Future football teammates, current wrestling adversaries.
Here is the list of CIF-SS Masters qualifiers from the county, and county basketball scores:
Friday’s CIF-SS semifinal results, with San Bernardino County teams in bold.
Perhaps the most surprising was the margin of the Rim victory. I predicted the Scots would win, but not by 49 points. By the way, our staff writer Ed Castro had Rim’s Jacob Taylor with 355 yards rushing and seven touchdowns, which would put him at 3,750 rushing yards and 54 touchdowns for the season in 13 games, although the official stats aren’t into maxpreps.com yet. Regardless, he is more than likely the No. 2 rusher in the nation according to maxpreps. That was his spot entering Friday’s games.
I am impressed by the quiet run Kaiser has made. The Cats were nearly forgotten after getting blown out by Summit to open league, but have come up clutch in the last few weeks in winning 7 in a row. Interesting stat: In its last 9 games (during which the Cats are 8-1), Kaiser has scored 14 points or less five times (going 4-1, including all 3 playoff games) and scored over 40 points in each of the other four games (going 4-0).
