Why not? I’m looking at both team’s nonleague schedules and I just don’t see why this game doesn’t happen every year.
Looking at Amat’s nonleague schedule, I see plenty of room for a game like this. Are you telling me it’s more in Amat’s interest to play Muir or even Damien? If you want to play local teams, then there’s no excuse not to make that the very best (other?) local team. Garfield? Really? It’s at ELAC, so I’m supposed to get excited? And I don’t want to hear Amat fans say “What happened last time we played?” … Charter Oak has gotten much better since then.
Looking at Charter Oak’s nonleague schedule, I see a game with Amat as the perfect way for the Chargers to delve into top-notch play instead of simply sticking their toe in the deeper waters with games against Esperanza and Rancho. Why not go all the way and take on Amat? If the Chargers want to be recognized (by all) as the Valley’s top program — without an argument from the Golden A contingent — then they need this game.
Now that the Chargers are a Division II team, there’s simply no excuse. The fans want it. I know the media wants it. Travel costs would basically be nil and the gate at either place would be sparkling.
Thank you. Now carry on with your day.
