KAISER 48, APPLE VALLEY 42>> If anybody left Malloy Stadium on the Kaiser High School campus early, they missed a furious fourth quarter that saw the host Cats hold on and score a 48-42 win over Apple Valley after building a 21-point margin in the fourth quarter. The Cats (3-1) also had a 48-27 advantage in the fourth before Apple Valley (2-3) got back in the game on the strength of a pair of 33-yard runs by Tristian Mcnatt. One set up a fourth-down score by T.J. Lewis and Mcnatt scored his fourth TD of the night after the Sun Devils recovered an onsides kick.Mcnatt, who finished with 147 yards in nine carries, also caught a two-point conversion pass from Mossy Bell to make it exciting with 2:42 left. But the Cats killed the clock, thanks to a 11-yard carry by Tyler Allgeier for a first down with 131 left. He and Joshua Johnson were the big offensive keys for Kaiser as Johnson scored three times and rushed for 194 on 25 carries on the night late in the third quarter.
I had a great week last week, going 27-5, and I got 1 margin exactly right, picking Apple Valley to beat Victor Valley by 7. I missed the Arrowhead Christian, Fontana-Miller, Granite Hills, Oak Hills-Etiwanda, and Yucca Valley games. So after going 2-0 on Thursday, my season record is 107-34 with 3 margins exactly right.

The trophy for Friday’s rivalry game between Etiwanda and Summit.
It was a tough debut for Etiwanda football coach Kevin Davis.
The Eagles were completely throttled by a quality Norco team 66-13. The good news is that’s only one game and Davis thinks his team will learn from its mistakes which were many.
The Eagles need to regroup in a hurry though. Looming on Friday is the “Fight for 15” rivalry game against Summit at Miller High School.
Davis is still optimistic though.
“The good thing is that there was no finer-pointing. Everyone took ownership for their own mistakes. In the past there might have been some of that and bickering on the sidelines. But everyone came in the next day on time and ready to go.”
Davis says his team went in confident but not necessarily overconfident or cocky.
It was just a matter of things steamrolling out of control. There were seven turnovers, beginning with the opening kickoff.
Davis is also glad to have a game in hand to iron out the problem spots where as Summit was idle last week.
“Having one last week will probably help us more than not having one will hurt them,” he said.
With Summit boasting several Division I players, most notably RB Stephen Carr, a USC commit, and DB Damian Alloway, the Eagles will again have their hands full. Their showing this week will be a great indicator as to whether this team can live up to expectations or it will be like those in the past who have underachieved.

Christmas came a little early for Ganesha football coach Don Cayer.
Jaylon Dean has transferred from Sunkist League champion Kaiser to Ganesha, Cayer confirmed.
The CIF has already ruled him eligible for the coming season. Dean, a 5-foot-10, 225 pounder, is expected to make an immediate impact.
“He will be a difference maker, especially on defense because that’swhere he has played the most,” Cayer said. “We have some skill players on offense but he gives us more options there.
Dean was an All-League selection last year on defense with 53 tackles and four sacks. Cayer says he will use him on both sides of the ball.
“We don’t get a transfer of this caliber that often,” he said. “We’re talking an All-League kid on a first place team. We’re excited to have him.”
Ganesha opens the season at Mark Keppel on Aug. 28.
