UPDATED: Schurr, behind QB Aaron Cantu, finished third in the Mission Viejo Tournament on Saturday. The Spartans finished behind winner Mission Viejo and second-place Upland. Not too shabby.
Azusa erased an early deficit to beat Monrovia in the finals of the SGV Shootout at Gladstone High on Saturday.
Wilson beat Baldwin Park to win the consolation bracket.
Azusa advanced to the finals by beating Whittier Christian. Monrovia topped Rowland in the other semifinal.
Eliminated in the quarterfinals was Arroyo (by Rowland), Diamond Bar (by Monrovia), Buena Park (by Azusa) and West Covina (by Whittier Christian).
Elswewhere, La Habra won the Edison Tournament. The Highlanders edged an absolutely loaded Corona Centennial team. Don’t know the details, but do know that South Hills went 1-4.
Also, Lakewood beat Loyola to win the Tournament of Champions at Sante Fe HS.
Aram’s take: You can take passing games with a grain of salt (or the whole shaker), but this is a pretty nice win for the Azctecs. If they have linemen to go with their skill players, then they’re easily the team to beat in the Montview League and likely to push for another semifinals bid (or beyond) in the Mid-Valley Division playoffs. The event was a great production by Arroyo coach Jim Singiser and his crew. And also Gladstone coach Albert Sanchez and his crew.
