Further thoughts on Eisenhower beating Carter 28-7

With my computer crashing twice on deadline on Friday night, I wasn’t able to get everything all the details into my story about Eisenhower’s 28-7 win over Carter.

So, I thought I’d share some of them, as well as my observations.

The win enabled Ike to win the city of Rialto championship trophy for the first time in five years. Since its inception in 2005 (?), Carter has won it every year except 2008 and 2013, when Ike won it. Rialto has never won it.

I didn’t mention Carter suffered two key injuries early in the game. right tackle Lynell Smith (ankle) and wide receiver/safety Tamas Stewart (collarbone) both left in the first quarter and did not return. The severity of their injuries is not known, but Smith was eventually able to walk to the locker room and Stewart did not need to be taken off on a stretcher.

Staying level-headed a key for Hesperia, Yucaipa

This week among the conversations I had with coaches were ones with Hesperia’s Jeremy Topete and Yucaipa’s Justin Price.

I wasn’t able to write anything about it in a prep football notebook, but wanted to mention some of the thoughts in a blog post.

Both coaches have a similar problem: they want to keep their team on an even keel, but they are coming at it from different sides.

Yucaipa beats Chaffey 30-6, but suffers possible setback

Yucaipa scored on four of its first five possessions (not counting a 19 second one that ended the first half) and went on to rout Chaffey 30-6 on Thursday night.

Yucaipa did suffer a blow when star Nevada-bound wide receiver Brandon Scott left the game at halftime with a possible concussion.

Scott caught two passes for 50 yards in the first half. He was hurt on his second reception for 27 yards just before halftime. He came back out to the sideline to start the second half, but then left the sideline to be examined.

“We hope he’s OK,” Yucaipa coach Justin Price said. “We want to be really safe.”

Yucaipa had enough to overwhelm the Tigers, with Erik Abrams catching five passes for 65 yards and a touchdown and rushing for 53 and Dakota Smith rushing for 84 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries. Billy Gustason passed for 139 yards and rushed for 37 yards on seven carries.

Jurupa Hills football might change its community day

Jurupa Hills held its second annual community day on Friday, but after Saturday, coach Ed McMillon said he might move the day. Why?

While there was some response again, with two school board members, Lorena Corona and Shannon O’Brien arriving to take pictures with players. Parents also arrived to take pictures with players on the field.

It was the team’s picture day, so it worked out well that the players were already in their uniforms. But team pictures ended early, and some of the players scattered by the time parents and community members arrived.

But on Saturday, for the team’s intrasquad scrimmage, McMillon was surprised.

Indian Springs won’t play football on campus this year

Indian Springs is in its first season as a varsity football program, and unfortunately for the Coyotes, they will not be playing any games on campus.

Although Indian Springs knew its stadium would not be ready, it had planned to play one home game on a Saturday afternoon on campus September 14), and have other games played at San Gorgonio.

But with the school’s grass field struggling to take hold, the decision has been made to not play any games on campus this year. That might extend to the soccer season in the winter.

As a result, all 3 of Indian Springs’ “home games” will be played at San Gorgonio.

The full schedule:
