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.

Redlands East Valley held off Citrus Valley, 11-7, on Thursday in Citrus Belt League play.
The Wildcats have suffered just one loss during CBL play, which has come against crosstown rival, the Redlands Terriers.
The duo of Bohner and Blackey are in their second year as a doubles team.
“It was difficult in the beginning. We struggled with communication,” Bohnert said. “Communication is key in doubles and we gained each others trust and now we high five each other and try to encourage one another to keep fighting.”
While their communication as grown stronger, the tandem has goals bigger goals in mind.
“We want to become as strong as we can and win as many matches as we can,” said Blackey. “We want to continue to improve throughout the season and be able to look back and be proud of how hard we worked together.”
For seniors such as Bohner, who is a four-year varsity player, she has seen the Wildcats program finish no higher than fifth in the Citrus Belt League the last two season.
“We have beaten Cajon and Citrus Valley so we are planning on being up there (this year),” she stated. “As a team our biggest goal is to make it in the Top 3 and we are on the path to doing just that.”
Junior Julia Vizcaino expressed the same goal for the Wildcats this year.
“I want REV to be in the top three (of the Citrus Belt League) this year and qualify for CIF,” Vizcaino said. “We are looking good so far.”
Vizcaino won two of her three matches against the Blackhawks as the Wildcats’ No. 2 singles player.
REV will continue its journey to the top of the CBL standings at 3:15 p.m. Tuesday against Yucaipa.

Janell Walley (left), and Alexis Cardoza celebrate after winning the title on Sunday.
Yucaipa High’s girls volleyball team is seeking a Citrus Belt League title this season. But senior Janell Walley is already coming off her own big victory.
Walley and Chino Hills junior Alexis Cardoza teamed up to win an A-rated adult level beach volleyball tournament in Huntington Beach on Sunday.
Walley and Cardoza, who are club teammates with Rancho Valley, went 2-1 in pool play, then won each of their bracket matches to bring home the title. They earned a AA rating, meaning Walley and Carodoza won’t be able to compete in any A-level tournaments anymore, only AA and AAA. AAA tournaments are pro-level.
Walley, who has committed to Boise State, said playing beach volleyball helps her with the high school team.
“I think it helps your reading game on the court, predicting where it goes,” she said.
Walley said it’s difficult because she doesn’t get to practice much on the beach this time of year, unlike other competitors, who live closer to the beach, and many of the opponents are in their 20s and have an experience advantage.
“But I feel like we younguns have more stamina,” she said.
It helped, she said, for a tournament that began at 9 a.m. and didn’t end until 5:30 p.m.
I just found out via email what the CIF-SS rules are about this. The fact that it is 2-on-2 beach volleyball is allowable during the season, per CIF-SS rules. Spokesman Thom Simmons said if it was 3-on-3 (half of a regular team) it would be a violation of team rules.
A 63-0 win and a perfect record are gone after Serrano High’s football team agreed to forfeit one game.
Serrano had routed each of its first four opponents, including a 63-0 win over Palmdale Quartz Hill on Sept. 11.
Ray Maholchic, Serrano’s athletic director and football coach said a player entered the fourth quarter of the Quartz Hill game who had originally had his transfer cleared.
But after the game, additional review of the transfer by the Snowline Joint Unified School District determined that the student should have been required to take serve a 30-day sit-out period. As a result. Serrano will forfeit the game.
“It (the player) didn’t really affect anything,” Maholchic said. “I guess we jumped the gun, but if there’s a silver lining, it didn’t happen in league.”
Serrano, is now 3-1, ranked No. 5 in The Sun Top 10 and No. 2 in the CIF-SS Eastern Division poll. The Diamondbacks have a bye this week before traveling to play Norco Oct. 2. Maholchic said the player is expected to play on the junior varsity this season.
