Knights coach Jimmy Singiser said he’d never consider, but had Arroyo taken a powder on Friday night and intentionally lost to Mountain View, the Knights would be co-league champs and would have avoided drawing San Dimas in the first round of the Mid-Valley Division playoffs.
I know it sounds wild, and some of you may think I’m crazy, but people don’t forget CIF champs. Nor do they forget CIF finalists. But they do forget league titles, unless they actually played on the team.
I’m just sayin’ … Rosemead finished second in the Mission Valley League and drew a home game against Temple City, which Panthers AND Knights had both already beaten this season.
Something to think about …
Singiser after the draw: To be the best, you have to beat the best. Might as well start with them. Everybody can look at it, figure it out and see the way things went. At some point we’re going to have to get through tough teams. You get who you get. It would be nice to be rewarded for being 9-1 instead of having to prove we deserve to be 9-1.
