CO’s “Electric” Aaren Vaughns went nutty on Thursday night, scoring five times as CO routed Glendora 38-3.
In the other big one on Thursday, Monrovia turned it over FOUR times INSIDE South Hills territory in the first half and fell behind 30-0. The Wildcats rallied to make the final score 30-27. Great win for South Hills and new head coach Fuzz Rodriguez, who has done an excellent job in his first season.
Aram’s take: This is directed at the Monrovia High School football team. Back-to-back champions don’t play like that. I don’t understand how this team could come out so poorly. But let me just say this, these kids need to realize that’s unacceptable. The scene at Covina District Field was great, but the only people who didn’t seem to realize that was the Monrovia players. Ellis McCarthy was there. Ayala coaches were there. Damien coach Greg Gano was there. I was there. Fred was there. But forget about all that, the blogger “New York” was there, in from the East Coast to see the game. And that’s what he got. I’m at a loss. I stand by this team talent-wise. They’re good enough to do special thing, but to lose fumbles on two snaps. To throw a pick that doinked off a lineman’s head. To get stripped in the open field. UNACCEPTABLE. The M-Town coaching staff and the parents don’t deserve that, let alone everyone else who came out to see what this team was about.
