All-Encompassing SGV(N) Top 25 heading into Week 5

They ain’t the Kings of Cameron, but Huskies can go anywhere they want in Monrovia.

1. Bishop Amat (4-0-1) — Culver City isn’t a gimme, but it is somewhat of a respite.
2. Chino Hills (3-1-1) — A week off to get ready for CO in Sierra opener.
3. La Mirada (4-1) — Got toughest league challenge out of the way by beating Norwalk.
4. Charter Oak (3-1) — Bounced back against Glendora. Los Osos will be a test.
5. Ayala (4-0) — Kaiser will be toughest game of nonleague.
6. Damien (2-1) — Barometer game vs. Los Al. Can Sparty match what CO did?
7. St. Francis (3-1) — Are they that much better than Monrovia? We’re about to find out.
8. La Serna (4-1) — Hung for a half vs. Norco, but had bubble burst.
9. West Covina (3-2) — Ground out win vs. D-Ranch and getting healthier.
10. South Hills (3-1) — Huskies do what they do. Never pretty, but very effective.
11. Monrovia (2-2) — Beating St. Francis is only thing that would ease the pain.
12. San Dimas (4-1) — Don’t expect Saints to show cards again until playoffs.
13. Rio Hondo Prep (3-1) — Gets 5-0 Big Bear team right out of the bye.
14. San Marino (4-0) — Still not sure Monrovia should be worried quite yet.

16. California (4-0) — Completed the Montebell/Schurr Daily Double with ease.
17. Diamond Ranch (3-2) — Panthers gave WestCo a run, now have week off.
18. Gladstone (4-0) — Not sure even Azusa can slow up the Gladiators at this point.
19. St. Paul (1-3) — Scheduling up may pay off if Swordsmen live to tell.
20. La Habra (2-3) — Troy in league opener is key if LH wants to continue rebound.
21. Whittier (3-1) — Beat Sweetwater. Yes, Sweetwater.
22. Gabrielino (5-0) — Finally beat a team with a winning record.
23. Bonita (2-3) — 118 points in the past two weeks. Bearcats getting scary.
24. El Monte (2-2) — Bell Gardens will be good final test before league play.
25. Northview (3-2) — Let’s see what the Vikings do with momentum from Covina win.

La Puente QB Ivan Vasquez back home after being released from hospital …

La Puente High School quarterback Ivan Vasquez was released from a local hospital early Saturday morning and is back at home, Warriors head coach Brandon Rohrer said via text message.

Vasquez suffered a neck injury after being tackled in the fourth quarter of Friday’s 37-7 loss to Gladstone. He lay motionless on the field after the injury and was treated on the scene by paramedics before being transported by ambulance to the hospital.

Vasquez is moving his arms and legs, but his neck is still “really sore”, according to Rohrer.

Coaches from both teams agreed to end the game with 9:56 still on the clock.
