Week 3 San Bernardino County football predictions

I had a decent week in Week 2, going 25-8 and I am now 84-22-1 for the season. But for some reason I struggled at the end, missing five of the last six games on the list (I am claiming dementia). However, I did get one margin exactly right, when I said Los Osos would beat Alta Loma 20-16 and it was actually 19-15, giving me 2 exact margins for the season. I had one score right, but I had the wrong team winning when I said Sultana would win 21-14, and they lost 21-14, so that doesn’t count. Here are this week’s picks:

Apple Valley 26, Victor Valley 21
Barstow 28, Sultana 20
Cajon 35, Paso Robles 31
Chino 44, Los Osos 28
Colony 35, Norte Vista 17
Colton 16, Chaffey 14
Covina 37, Montclair 16
Don Lugo 27, Northview 22
Eisenhower 40, Rialto 22
Fontana 26, Miller 20
Grand Terrace 42, Vista del Lago 7
Great Oak 35, Ayala 27
Jurupa Valley 30, Arroyo Valley 20
Kaiser 21, Palm Springs 19
Lakeside 35, Bloomington 8
Mater Dei 49, Upland 21
Moreno Valley 42, Jurupa Hills 22
Oak Hills 28, Etiwanda 16
Ontario 28, Patriot 26
Pacific 36, West Valley 22
Perris 42, San Bernardino 12
Rancho Cucamonga 24, Murrieta Valley 14
Redlands 27, Chaparral 24
Redlands East Valley 26, Heritage 23

Shawn Moore, Miller get first win with new philosophy

Miller got its first win of the season under new coach Shawn Moore last week, a 42-15 rout of Moreno Valley Vista Del Lago.
“I think it was a good all-around win. We did a lot of things well,” Moore said.
Miller looks a little different on offense this year, even with senior star athlete/quarterback Malik Flowers returning from Justin Nast’s team last year.
Moore has chosen to play Flowers at receiver and running back, instead of quarterback, because that’s where Flowers will more than likely play in college. He doesn’t want to hinder Flowers’ recruitment by playing him at another position.
How has that worked?
In Miller’s opener, Flowers caught four passes for 111 yards and two touchdowns in a 36-15 loss to Perris. Last week, he rushed for 227 yards and three touchdowns.
But Moore says another running back, senior Kenny Thompson is also a standout talent.
“He’s a guy hardly anyone knows about,” Moore said.

Rialto gets first win

Rialto football got its first win last week, and it was the first win for coach Robert Mitchell in his first year as the head coach at his alma mater. But the 43-34 win over Bloomington was also snapped a 14-game losing streak for the program.
Rialto’s scoring outburst came after getting shut out in its first two games and nearly equaled the 46 points they scored in all of 2015.
Quarterback Tyler Gonzalez threw three touchdowns and one interception in the game after throwing four interceptions and of course no touchdowns in the first two games.
Leo Torres scored two rushing touchdowns, Tim Key had a receiving touchdown and also returned a kickoff for a second touchdown.

Kaiser football’s opponent’s decision: tie or win?

Last week, Kaiser settled for a 15-15 tie with Downey Warren, but not by its own choice.
Here’s the situation as told to me from Kaiser coach Phil Zelaya:
Warren scored the game’s first touchdown and went for 2 to go up 8-0. Kaiser answered and also went for 2 to tie the score, 8-8.
Then Kaiser scored again, this time kicked the extra point to go up 15-8. Warren answered right back and quickly went down the field to score a touchdown with about 25 seconds left.
“It looked like they were going to go for 2,” Zelaya said.
It was big Warren crowd, a “White Out” night for the fans and coach Raul Lara, the former coach at Long Beach Poly decided to kick the extra point. It was successful and the game finished in the tie although Kaiser nearly had a chance to win in the final seconds.
Some preseason games have overtime, by mutual agreement from coaches, but most do not. Coaches want to play 48 minutes, but don’t see the need to play extra time, risking injury, in a game that likely has no bearing on whether or not they make the playoffs.
So what would Zelaya have done?
“I would’ve gone for 2,” he said.
Yes, a tie is better than a loss. But don’t you want your team to see you’re willing to go for it? I would’ve gone for the win, too.

Sultana wins game, suffers serious player injury

Sultana High School football is coming off a win, and still has eight games left in the regular season, but it can’t be easy for the Sultans to focus on anything other than their player who wears No. 29, senior defensive end Bruce Henderson.
Henderson suffered a brain injury late in Friday’s 7-0 win over Riverside Norte Vista and was taken to the hospital.
According to tweets from Sultana assistant coach Chris Fore’s Twitter account, Henderson suffered the injury on a play in which “it was a hit on a running back. Might have been that hit, might have been contact with the ground.”
Fore tweeted that Henderson “came off the field under his own power. Then our staff had him see trainer when they knew he wasn’t ‘right.’”
He eventually underwent emergency brain surgery at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton.
Since then, the official twitter account of Sultana Football reported: “Keep fighting Bruce. Everyone is here for you. Great news, Bruce has been giving thumbs up on command now. We love you.” Monday, the account reported “amazing news. They have taken the tubes out and Bruce is doing better and better. He’s even trying to talk. God is gr8. Keep praying.”
An online fund through youcaring.com had raised $4,070 of a $10,000 goal as of Tuesday evening for Henderson and his family.
Through two games, Henderson is second on the team with 29 tackles.
Messages to Sultana coach Keith Locklear and principal Larry Bird were not returned.
On Thursday, the following update was given:


Rough night, big win
A secondary story was the fact that Sultana beat Norte Vista, a big win for Sultana. Norte Vista was a playoff team last year and Sultana’s win was likely the Sultans’ most impressive since 2012.
In 2012, a year after Sultana last made the playoffs, Sultana defeated Pomona 26-24. Until Friday, that was the last time Sultana had beaten a team that had finished the previous season with a winning record.
Obviously a big part of the 7-0 win was defense, which included four fumble recoveries off six forced fumbles. Special teams also averaged 40.0 yards per kick in the game.
That was a week after Norte Vista routed Claremont, 49-21.
